Some good news and bad news for Garbage Pail Kids fans today. First the bad news, today Topps launched one Trumpocracy (#148 – Artist: Camera) card two Network Spews (#33 – Artist: Im-#34 Artist: Im) cards, all of them Wacky Packages. This is the second time an entire day’s offer was Wacky Packages only. The move to predominantly offer Wackys started about a month ago. It appears Topps has almost entirely changed the Network Spews set over to Wacky Packages, the last seven cards in the set have been Wackys. You can’t blame Topps for this as the Wacky Package cards have continued to outsell their GPK counterparts by 50-100 copies.
Today’s good news for GPK collectors comes by way of Topps announcing that international customers can now have Topps Now cards shipped to them for a flat rate fee of $10. Previously, customers purchasing outside the US would be charged well over $100 to ship just one card. This is a welcome change by Topps, and fixes one of the biggest complaints about the Topps Now On Demand service.
For those collector’s going for the set each of today’s cards can be purchased for $9.99 or in lots of 5 for $29.99, 10 for $49.99, or 20 for $79.99. A three card bundle featuring one of each card is available for $29.99. Free shipping is being offered in the US via the SmartPost option, internationally shipping is $10. The cards will be available for 24 hours on topps.com. Topps will reveal the print run at the end of the sale. Here are pictures of today’s cards.
This was actually good news that Topps didn’t make any stupid GPK.
