Mob Grip Offering More GPK Themed Skateboard Grip Tape

After being quiet on the market for the last six months, Mob Grip is returning with a new selection of Garbage Pail Kids skateboard grip tape. Mob Grip is a subsidiary of NFS, Inc. The same company that owns Santa Cruz skateboards. Last October Mob Grip launched their first wave of GPK character grip tape. The company is returning this summer with new styles and new characters.

Mob Grip is offering two styles of tape. The first features GPK characters on a black background. The characters offered are Fryin’ Brian, Boozin’ Bruce, Ailin’ Al, Corroded Carl, and Potty Scotty. The Bruce is a repeat character from their first offer back in October, while the others are new. The second group being offered is GPK characters on clear grip tape. Adam Bomb, Tee-Vee Stevie, Mad Mike, Wacky Jackie, Bony Joanie are the five characters being offered in clear. Both Adam and Stevie are repeat characters from their first offer. The tape measures 9″ x 33″.

Right now The Dark Slide online skateboard company is offering the grip tape for pre-order. They currently have both sets of grip tape available as a 5 pack for $59.99. The tape should be available for pre-order soon at many skateboard shops. The last batch of grip tape retailed for $11.99 each. According to The Dark Slide’s website the tape is scheduled to launch in July of this year.


Creepy Co. Launches Two New GPK Shirts

In what they are calling a mini-release, today Creepy Co. will launch two new shirts to their line of Garbage Pail Kids merchandise. The shirts are scheduled to go on sale on Creepy’s website at 7:00 PM Central time, (5:00 PM Pacific/8:00 PM Eastern). Creepy Co. has continued to use their GPK license with Topps in new and different ways. Today’s launch marks a couple of firsts for the company with GPK merchandise.

The first shirt being offered is the Garbage Pail Kids 30th Anniversary Motif Shirt. This is a black t-shirt featuring Joe Simko’s artwork that appeared on Checklist card 1a/b in 30th anniversary set. This 100% cotton shirt also features a Creepy Co. logo tag on the sleeve. This marks the first t-shirt being offered by Creepy Co. Previously, Creepy didn’t hold the GPK license to produce t-shirts. It appears that Creepy Co. has taken over that portion of the GPK license as well now. The shirt is available is sizes S-XL ($26.99), 2XL ($27.99), and 3XL-4XL ($28.99).

The second shirt is also a first for Creep Co. The Garbage Pail Kids Pattern Print Shirt is a dye sublimated, front and back allover print, on spun polyester, unisex shirt. This is the first time Creepy has used this method on a shirt. The shirt features the characters Bony Tony, Dead Ted, Eerie Eric, Nasty Nick, Bony Joanie, and Adam Bomb. One word of warning from the company, “The pattern print shirt runs small: customers are advised to read the product description carefully. These are stretchy and comfy for sure, but depending on how you like your shirts to fit, you may want to order a size up.” The company also warns this shirt will be available in limited quantities. The shirt is available is S-4XL for $34.99.

Mob-Grip Launches GPK Skateboard Grip Tape

So you have your brand new Garbage Pail Kids themed Santa Cruz skateboard deck, and you are ready to ride! You are going to need some grip tape! Mob-Grip has launched officially licensed Garbage Pail Kids grip tape. Like Santa Cruz, Mob-Grip is owned by NFS Inc. The company is offering 5 different classic OS 1 characters for purchase. Characters offered are; Adam Bomb, Tee-Vee Stevie, Electric Bill, Dead Ted, and Boozin’ Bruce. The tape measures 9″ x 33″ and features the classic artwork with straight Garbage Pail Kids banner, and classic name plate.

It appears two online skateboard companies began offering the tape this weekend on their websites, only for the listings to sell out quickly, and disappear. However, online retailer The Dark Slide, shows a listing for the tape with a “Coming Soon” label. The tape appears to retail for $11.99 per character. (Update: Price is now higher at $14.95. If buying from The Dark Slide you can use discount code GPK10off until 11/1.) The NFS Inc. B2B site also has pictures of the grip tape with the SKU #. I’ve reached out to the manufacture for more information, I’ll update this post with anything I find out. Keep your eyes open online and in skateboard shops around the country if you are interested in adding this to you collection.

Update: The Mob-Grip Brand Manager reaches out to GPK News to confirm that this is indeed an officially licensed product. The GPK themed grip tape officially launches on 10/23 in skate stores around the country.
