Santa Cruz Details GPK Themed Skateboard Deck Launch

Last May skateboard resellers begin taking pre-orders for Garbage Pail Kids themed decks made by Santa Cruz Skateboards. Santa Cruz’s license with Topps doesn’t stop at boards, they are also offering GPK themed t-shirts. This week on their website, Santa Cruz released some details on these blind bag decks.  In the video posted below, Santa Cruz Brand Manager, Andrew Cannon, opened up five of these blind bags and revealed what could be found inside. As released earlier collectors will be able to find 9 different types of skateboard decks all varying in rarity. The seven most common decks feature Adam Bomb, or variations like Hazardous Hand and Radioactive Rob.

As detailed in the video, the final two types of decks are both 1of1 varieties. There are 24 Artist Boards randomly inserted in the run. These 1of1 boards were hand painted by the following Santa Cruz artists; Jimbo Phillips, Tallboy, Pitchgrim, Horsebites, Suzanne Fiore, Keith Haupt, Aye Jay, Esayde, Pseudo5, Bart Saric, Tyler Emanuel, Lucas Musgrave, Ted Cocuzza, Ben Raney and Funeral French.

There are also 40 Background Boards. These are also 1of1’s that feature the classic Adam Bomb character but the backgrounds are all different.

In addition to the decks, collectors will also get an exclusive GPK card of Hazardous Hand, as well as a Heaving Hand sticker. The artwork for both the card and sticker was done by Santa Cruz artist “Pitchgrim” Cody Melick.

Santa Cruz has not revealed what the print run or odds of the various decks are. The GPK themed decks and t-shirts are set to be released from retailers on 10/9/17.

  1. Hey, does the card come with all orders, or just pre-sales. And is it included with all retailers or just from Santa Cruz direct. Do you know if they are limited time?

    Thanks,
    Tony

    • Every blind bag should have a card in it. Many retailers have already done pre-sales. I’m sure skateboard shops will have them in stop after launch day. They did do a “limited” number of them, but they haven’t revealed how many.
