Topps Reveals Print Run for GPK Network Spews #58

The only GPK online exclusive this week, proved to be the lone bright spot for Topps. Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Network Spews card #58. The card, offered this past Wednesday, was the only GPK card offered during the two days of online releases. The card also marked the debut final painting for artist Simone Arena. Sales were solid for the card, finishing with 185. While still low that easily topped all recent sales for the last two weeks. Online exclusives have taken a huge downward turn, especially with the Wack Packages. All the other Wacky’s launched this week, ended in the low 100’s, continuing a trend that started last week. It will be interesting to see how the low sales figures into how Topps will continue with the online releases.

Topps Reveals Print Run for GPK Lord of the Flyes Set

The news continued to get worse for Topps online sales with the print run of the set based off of the failed Fyre Festival concert. Last night Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Lord of the Flyes online set. As with sales of they daily online cards, this set offered for three days last week also set records for low sales. The GPK cards ended up the lowest sellers, with card #3a/b doing only 109 copies, a new low for GPK sales. The Wacky’s didn’t fare much better ending in the 120’s. With sales this low it will be interesting to see how Topps moves forward with online offers. Here is how the set ended up.

Topps Reveals Print Run for GPK Trumpocracy #1-#4 & Network Spews #51-#52

Topps waited until the end of the week to reveal the print runs for their online exclusives, and the news isn’t good. Last night Topps revealed the print runs for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy 2017 cards #1-#4, and GPK Network Spews #51-#52. The news started out good for Topps as card #1 of any set always sells well, and the new Trumpocracy set was no exception. Card #1 blew everything away doing sales of 346. From there things started going downhill. Wednesday’s GPK cards saw sales back down in the mid 100’s. The bad news came with Thursday’s release of Network Spews cards. Sales hit rock bottom. Both GPK cards broke the record for lowest in sales, and not by a little bit. The new lowest is card #51 with only 112 in sales. Perhaps more worrisome for Topps is the sales of Wacky Packages. Thursday’s Network Spews Wacky bottomed out with three actually ended in double digits. Was Thursday a one off in sales? Or have a large number of collectors buying these stopped? It will be very interesting to see what if offered and the sales next week. Here are how the sales came out for the week.

GPK Trumpocracy
#1 – 100 Days Donald – 346
#2 – Divertin Donald – 147
#3 – Tough Cookie Trump – 151
#4 – Colin Alien Hitlinr – 176

GPK Network Spews
#51 – Eager Eagles – 112
#52 – Rapturous Rihanna – 118

Just when you thought Topps might take a break from the Trumpocracy, it starts all over again. Today Topps launched Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy 2017 card #1. Remove the 100 days title, add 2017 on it, and start over at card #1 (Artist: Camera). Topps also released three Network Spews Wacky Packages cards as well today. (Going forward I will no longer be covering the Wacky Packages cards as part of GPKnews.com.

I will mention the launch of the daily cards but will only post pictures and print runs of the GPK cards.) The card can be purchased for $9.99 or in lots of 5 for $29.99, 10 for $49.99, or 20 for $79.99.
