GPKNation was one of the companies highlighted by Topps Licensing VP Ira Friedman on last week’s Philly Non-Sports Topps Virtual Chat. Now the Chief Operating Officer of GPK Nation, Louis Gregory; publicly known as “Uncle Louie” who also co-stars on ABC’s hit show The Goldbergs has shared with us that he has finished a new book and last year’s “Topps Sketch Artist of the Year” Jasmine Contois is hard at work illustrating it as we speak. Be sure to follow the GPKNation Facebook page for more updates.
GPKNation is set to continue to offer their limited GPK merchandise this week. First up will be a special Tuesday launch for a Black Adam Bomb Ornament Keychain. The keychains will be limited to only 50 made. Customers who order can also enter a door prize contest by entering their order number on the GPKNation Facebook group.

That‘a not all they have planned this week. This Friday will be the launch of coin #2 in various colors. There will be 100 copies of the coin available in Nickel Plated White, Sterling Silver, and Artist Proof. There will also be 5 each of the coins in red, blue, green, purple, orange, and yellow. The coins will launch at 1:00 PM EST this Friday, 10/16.
GPKNation never sleeps it seems. After offering the final playing card coin last week, the company is going back to what got them started. They announced that starting this Friday, 10/9 @ 1:00 PM EST, they will be offering Garbage Pail Kids Challenge Coin #1 in a silver plated version. This will be the third version of the coin after the white and gold versions. GPKNation will be selling coin #2 on 10/16, and coin #3 on 10/23. Each coin is limited to 100 copies. The company promises there will be other surprises on sale throughout the month.
While this is the third version of the original coin being offered, that’s not all that exists. As Adam Goldberg and Louis Gregory were launching their endeavor they had six different color proofs made; red, blue, purple, yellow, orange, and green. After receiving the proofs, they couldn’t decide on a color and ended up offering the white version. There are /5 proof sets of each color that exist. Eventually the colors would spark the idea for the colors on the emblems and patches that GPKNation have sold.
GPKNation.com has another big week of officially licensed Garbage Pail Kids releases planned. They announced on their Facebook page they will be having a Pin Party this Tuesday. On Tuesday, 9/29, at 3:00 PM EST, they will be releasing a new version of the pins they previously offered. The five pins will be offered in a Misty Gold version. The pins are limited to /50 each, and will be sold individually and in a set of five. There will be a limit of one of each pin per order. That’s not all, they will also be offering a new Glow in the Dark version of the 35th anniversary coaster. There will be 350 coasters made, and there will be no purchase limit. Customers can enter a special drawing by entering their order number on the GPKNation Facebook page.
That’s not all they have planned this week. The final playing card challenge coin of Adam Bomb will launch this Friday, 10/2, at 1:00 PM EST. This is the last of the five large coins in this series.

Everything Garbage Pail Kids has been hot, and these new challenge coins have been no exception. Last week, the first two challenge coins sold out in just a few mins. Collectors will get another chance as today Adam Goldberg announced Garbage Pail Kids Challenge Coin #3. Produced by Louis Gregory, this officially Topps licensed coin features Bony Joanie, Fryin Ryan, and Hot Scott on the front. The 35th GPK anniversary logo in on the back of the coin. This is the third coin in what was a planned three coin series. Just like the previous coins this one is limited to 100 copies. However, for this coin, purchases will be limited to one per person. Like with the first two coins, each purchase comes with an autographed Adam Goldberg GPK card. The coin is set to go on sale this Friday, 7/31, at 1:00 EST. Coins can be purchased on the GPKNation.com website. Goldberg is planning to continuing producing new coins in an ongoing partnership with Topps. Collectors will need to be on time as these should once again go fast!
Yesterday the first Garbage Pail Kids Challenge Coin sold out in just 4 mins. Today Adam Goldberg announced coin #2 will be officially launching this Friday at 1:00 PM EST. The second coin, produced by Louis Gregory, features Nasty Nick, Weird Wendy, and Wrappin Ruth. The GPK 35th anniversary logo is on the back of the coin. The coins are officially licensed by Topps. This is the second coin in a planned three coin series. Just as the first coin, this one will be limited to 100 copies. Coins can be purchased at GPKNation.com. Adam has mentioned there is an additional series of coins and pins planned in the future. As part of his announcement, Adam said proceeds will go towards a GPK TV series he co wrote with Joe Simko.
Here is the announcement as made by Adam Goldberg on various GPK Facebook groups:
Aside from being an obsessive GPK fan, I’m also a long time challenge coin collector. I am thrilled that Topps was open to the idea of merging my two favorite hobbies!
I was not expecting the 1st coin to sell out so fast. Moving forward, new coins will be released on Fridays at 1pm EST. I am also trying to put a limit on the number of coins bought (TBD).
So spread the word! GPK Coin #2 drops THIS FRIDAY 7/24 at 1PM EST. Officially licensed by Topps, produced by Louis Gregory, limited edition, only 100 made. If these are well received, I’m open to doing future runs of 200 to 500 with the OS characters. Although some of you insist it should be 1000!?!?
Coins will ship within 24 hours. I’ve been a frustrated fan waiting weeks to get cards so I insanely paid for extra help so everyone could get an instant turnaround.
All profits go towards producing a bad-ass GPK film series I wrote with artist Joe Simko – which I dream can become a new TV show! Stay safe and GPK 4 LIFE!
