Topps Comics continue to be a solid seller for Topps. Today Topps revealed the print run for Topps Comics GPK #3 The Garbage Pail Kids Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse. Topps had taken a few weeks off from producing the comics. Sales for comic #3 ended earlier this morning after being on sale for 7 days on topps.com. The latest comic focused on the various ways the apocalypse is upon us during Trump’s presidency. Total sales ended up being 291 copies. While quite a bit less than comic #2, it did outsell #1, and the sales numbers are quite higher than the Trumoocracy cards have been producing. There is no telling when the next comic will hit the website, but Topps is bound to continue the series.
Topps is back with the political cards today with a huge offering. Today Topps launched Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy – The First 100 Days cards #64-#70. The large seven cards being offered today by Topps contains five GPK cards and two Wacky Packages. Not as much Trump today, as we get cards for Obama, Hillary, and another returning OS 1 character. Each card can be purchased for $9.99 or in lots of 5 for $29.99, 10 for $49.99, or 20 for $79.99. There is also a seven card bundle with one of each card available for $44.99.

Sales for the latest batch of political cards fell for second release this week. Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy – The First 100 Days cards #59-#63 & Network Spews #17. Sales numbers are starting to show when Toppes releases multiple political releases in a row, the sales fall. Thursday’s release saw the GPK cards fall to the mid 100’s sold, while the Wacky’s fell to the mid 200’s. The exception to this was the Trump parody based off of a OS 1 series card, which managed to pull in 203 copies sold. Next week could bring us more online political cards along with a set based off the Oscars. Here are the final numbers for the last release of the week.
#59 – Tee-Ver Trump – 203
#60 – Thieving Trump – 156

The first political release of the week brought in very similar numbers to last week’s release for Topps. Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy cards #54-#58. The numbers across the board matched up closely with the release last week. The GPK cards all did in the 180 range, while the Wackys did right around 300 each. These numbers are slightly higher than the records lows from a couple of weeks back. Is the reason for this because of fewer releases? It will be interesting to see the sales numbers from today’s second release of the week stack up. Here is the final information for Wednesday’s cards.
#54 – Dining Donald – 180
#55 – Transcribing Trump – 175
#56 – Extravagant Eric – 186
