Topps is out to show collectors the love. Today Topps launched 2020 On Demand Set 3 Garbage Pail Kids Mr. & Mrs. online set. After numerous awards and political sets, Topps is going back to what was successful last year. This year’s set is structured much like the last on demand set. There are 20 base cards in the set, comprised of 10 new paintings with a/b versions. Joe Simko, Brent Engstrom, David Gross, Joe McWilliams, and Neil Camera all completed two paintings for the set. Collectors purchasing a set will receive the base set, 3 green heart parallels, 2 red heart parallels, 1 black heart parallel, and 1 5×7 poster. Collectors also will have a 1:2 chance of pulling a sketch card. Topps did not release the number of sketch artists or names of artists. Here are the confirmed artists with number of sketches they completed for the set: Jasmine Contois (40), Jason Crosby (50), Rich Molinelli (50), Barry Nygma (30), Nik Castaneda (50), Sobot Cortez (50), Bobby Blakey (44), Jeff Cox (30), Joey Fitchett (40), Daniel Contois (30), Darrin Pepe (20), Brandhen Snyder (40), Robert Jimenez (20), Anthony Skubis (30), Chad Scheres (50), Shane Garvey (20), Vincenzo D’Ippolito (50), Smokin Joe McWilliams (40), and Gavin Williams (??). That brings the current total of sketches to 674. That would mean there are at least 1,350 sets. However, there very well could be additional artists, which would increase the print run.
Each Valentine’s set can be purchased for $40. Shipping is free when choosing the SmartPost option. The set will be on sale for 7 days on Topps.com, or until it sells out. These On Demand sets generally sell out, so don’t delay in purchasing. Topps will reveal the print run at the end of the sale. Here are some sample card images.
