Topps Digital will be all about the Food Fight this week. To coordinate with Topps physical release, Topps Digital is making huge steps forward in luring collectors to digital GPKs. For the first time, boxes of 2021 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight physical cards contain redemption cards for WAX Blockchain GPK Packs. Each boxed product, Blasters, Retail Display, and Collector Boxes contain one redemption card. Redemption cards can also be found 1:4 Fat Packs. Redemption cards feature the artwork of GPK artist Nik Castaneda, who previously did artwork for the digital OS 2 set and also did sketch cards in the physical set. The back of the card features a scratch off code and instructions for redeeming. Collectors who pull a redemption can redeem the code at https://play.toppsapps.com/redeem. New collectors to the WAX Blockchain can create a new account and WAX wallet at the site as well. There doesn’t appear to be an expiration date on the redemption card. The redemption website officially launches on 2/24.
Each redemption code can be redeemed for a 3 card pack of Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight. The cards in the digital set are different from the physical cards. The digital set contains 11 new pieces of artwork all done by Nik Castaneda. Redemption packs contain 3 “a” cards from the all new digital set. The cards are available in five different rarities. Collectors have the chance to pull Base, Prism, Sketch, Artist Autograph, and Golden. Cards are on the Atomic Assets NFT standard and packs can be opened and cards viewed at the Atomic Hub website. The first 10,000 redemption packs will be pre-minted. This will enable more collectors to have the chance at pulling low minted cards. Any redemptions after 10,000 will be minted on demand.
You may be asking yourself, if I can get the “a” cards from redemption packs, how do I get the “b” names. The answer lies in this week’s Topps Digital Winter Con 2021. Winter Con is scheduled to take place 2/25-2/28, and is completely virtual. During those dates, Topps will be offering 3 card packs for sale. Packs will be on sale during the Con. Each day of the Con there will be 2,450 packs available for sale. The launch time varies each day, collectors will want to attend Topps Winter Con to find out the release times on a daily basis. The packs will only be able to be purchased via credit card. Packs purchased at Winter Con contain 3 “b” cards, with collectors having the same chance to pull five different versions; Base, Prism, Sketch, Artist Autograph, and Golden. Unlike the redemption packs, the Winter Con packs will not be pre-minted. The first packs opened will receive low mints.
