Topps Reveals Print Run for GPK Trumpocracy #21-23 & Network Spews #68-#70

After a couple of days delay Topps has revealed sales for the rest of last week’s online exclusive cards. Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy 2017 cards #21-#23, and GPK Network Spews #68-#70. Network Spews #68 was part of Wednesday’s sales, but sales results were not revealed until today. The rest of the cards were from Thursday. Sales continue to be on the low end with a couple of cards under 100, and the others in the low 100’s. Overall the Trumpocracy cards seem to sell better than the Network Spews set. After weeks of focusing on Wacky Packages, last week Topps reversed course with the majority of cards being GPK.  It will be interesting to see how Topps continues the offers next week. Here are how sales ended up for the week.

It took a few extra days, but we finally have the sales numbers for last Wednesday and Thursday’s online exclusives, including one controversial card. Today Topps revealed the print runs for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy 2017 #14 and GPK Network Spews #60, #62-#63. Perhaps not so shocking is a new record low was set for GPK online exclusives. Network Spews card #60 only sold 76 copies. This is the first card to finish under 100 copies sold. The card caused much controversy among GPK collectors this week, as many collectors questioned the quality of both the gag and the art. The artist of the card, which appears to have been digitally created, has not be revealed. Clearly, sales of the card were affected, as the card sold over 30 less than the previous record low. The news for the other GPK cards was still not great, as sales continue to lag. Here are how the sales ended up for the cards offered last Wednesday and Thursday.
