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

Topps Launches GPK Trumpocracy 2017 Card #1

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. It appears this is now Topps’ main focus instead of just being a part of the set, even though the Spews set is still called “GPK”. 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. A four card bundle featuring one of each of today’s cards is also available for $29.99. Free shipping within the US is available via the SmartPost option, or international shipping for $10.

Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy – The First 100 Days cards #156-#166, and Network Spews #44-#46. With Topps putting out mostly Wacky Packages cards as part of their online exclusives recently a new trend has taken hold. The GPK cards are selling just as well and in many cases now lead the daily sales results. This happen again as Trumpocracy #157 led the way with 256 in sales. The Wacky’s meanwhile for the most part staying in the 170-220 range again. With the Wacky Packages it is starting to appear cards by certain artists are selling more than others on a consistent basis. The big question now, is this the end of the Trumpocracy set? President Trump’s 100th day in office is tomorrow. There has been no word from Topps yet on how they will handle the online exclusive cards next week. Here are how the final numbers ended up for the last two days of cards.

Topps Reveals Print Run for GPK Trumpocracy #155 & Network Spews #40-#43

A GPK card leads the way in sales results. Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy – The First 100 Years card #155, and Network Spews #40-#43. A few weeks back Topps made a change to focus on more Wacky Packages, instead of GPK as part of the online exclusive releases. At the time Wacky Packages sold significantly more copies than their GPK counterparts. The trend now appears to be changing. The lone GPK card from Tuesday’s release led the way in sales with 236 copies. The Wacky’s were all over the place in sales in the 170-220 range. Was the change in sales because of the artwork? Was it because the GPK card was the only Trumpocracy card, while the others were Network Spews? Or is it just simply Wacky collectors tiring of the increase of online cards? How Topps decides to change up online offers after Trump hits 100 days will be interesting to see. Here are how the sales numbers came out for Tuesday’s cards.

GPK Trumpocracy
#155 – Dinner for 4 Donald – 236

Network Spews
#40 – Unicappucinno (Wacky) – 177
#41 – Puzzler Alphabet Soup (Wacky) – 227
#42 – Hammy-let (Wacky) – 171
#43 – Teed off Tater Tots (Wacky) – 211

After three straight days of online releases, sales remain constant. Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids – The First 100 Days #153-#154, and GPK Network Spews #37-#39. Topps continued the focus on Wacky Packages this week. Of the 15 cards released, only four were GPK. Sales numbers haven’t responded, and Thursday’s results are much the same. All cards finished under 200 in sales, except for the Alternate Facts Wacky card. Both GPK cards were just behind their Wacky counterparts.

Topps Reveals Print Run for GPK Trumpocracy #148-#152 & Network Spews #33-#36

Over the past few weeks Topps has made a move to focus more on Wacky Packages over GPK in the online releases, but are customers buying? Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy – The First 100 Days cards #148-#152, and GPK Network Spews #33-36. These results are for both Tues. and Wed. online releases, where seven of the nine cards were Wacky Packages. It would appear focusing on Wacky Packages isn’t working, as new lows in sales were set for Wacky cards. Only one card for this sale broke 200 in sales, with a couple of the Network Spews Wackys down in the 160’s for sales. Wacky cards to date had not seen sales this low. Both the GPK cards were right in line with their Wacky counterparts. Today is day 90 of President Trump’s stay in office, the end appears to be near for at least one of these online sets. Expect Topps to hit it hard in the final 10 days. Here are the final numbers.

GPK Trumpocracy
#148 – Donald’s Easter Surprise Basket (Wacky) – 213
#149 – Deference Donald – 173
#150 – Touring Trump – 182
