Members of Topps’ Garbage Paul Kids Collector’s Club have begun receiving shipping notices for the first set of the club. Topps has posted some information on their website. The GPK Collector Club now has its own page under the clubs section of the website. Within that section are details on the first set, Trash Can-Didates. The set appears to be cards of the characters that ran for election of the club. The checklist shows 20 cards and 1 header card. The description of the set reads:
Nat Nerd for a “Kinder, Gentler GPK Nation.” This was not an easy election for Nat to win, by any means. Even after they misspelled his name on the web he continued to show who should be club president. Many classic characters came out to be a part of the election process but couldn’t overtake the biggest Nerd of all. Congratulations to Nat Nerd for winning the first ever GPK Collectors Club election. Here is a list of the losers who couldn’t cut it.
Sets should be arriving in members mailboxes any day. Here is a copy of the checklist in PDF form.
