Topps issued the first wave of All-New Series 3 in a Test Release to limited markets in December 2005. It was followed by a Nationwide Release that shipped in late February 2006, accompanied by six new Bonus Cards available in carded blister packs and in retailer-exclusive bonus boxes.

With 71 unique paintings appearing among the base set, foil insert cards, and bonus stickers, ANS3 contains the largest number of new titles of any Wacky Packages series.

Promo Cards

The Annoying Spitter-Man

Topps distributed a free card (not a die-cut sticker) at the 2005 San Diego Comic-Con (July 14-17) which served as a promotion for both ANS2 and a tease for the forthcoming All-New Series 3.

"Spitter-Man" also appears as base card #29 in the first wave of ANS3.

'Spitter-Man' promo front 'Spitter-Man' promo back The card front is a parody of the cover of Amazing Fantasy #15 (1962), the first appearance of Marvel's Spider-Man. The "Spitter-Man" gag was devised by Wacky series editor Jeff Zapata and painted by artist David Gross. The back of the card touts ANS2 as "On Sale Now!" while suggesting that ANS3 is "Coming Soon."
