Topps Releases Checklist for 2022 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire

We are just two days away from the scheduled release of the next GPK Sapphire set. Today, Topps released the checklist for 2022 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire. This marks the second Sapphire release in the past four months, and allows Topps to continue to catch up on past planned sets. Topps is changing thIngs up with this new release. The checklist contains the same 100 cards from Chrome OS 5. The set features all original OS 5 cards plus the 10 new pieces (20 cards) done by current artists for the recently released Chrome OS 5 set. This is the first time a GPK Sapphire set is focused on one series. No other information has been released by Topps including pricing, parallels, or odds. Distribution could very well be changing for this release. Previously, Montgomery Club members received first crack at GPK Sapphire boxes. However, this time may be different. Topps is playing catch-up throughout January with multiple Sapphire brands. So far none have been offered to Montgomery Club members first. The 2022 Club has ended, and 2023 members were only promised 2023 labeled sets. So Topps has been going with just public releases so far this month with Sapphire sets. Collectors can view the checklist here. Expect a rush of buyers to be ready to go when 2022 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire launches 1/27/23.

New Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire Set Coming This Month

In what’s sure to be a shock to collectors, there is a new GPK Sapphire release coming in less than 3 weeks. In today’s release date email to distributors, Topps added a listing for 2022 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire. Much like Chrome, this will be the second Sapphire release in 4 months. Previously GPK Sapphire sets released  towards the end of the year. With the set having the 2022 label, it appears this release was originally planned for last year. Last year’s Sapphire release had the 2021 label as it was scheduled for 2021. Topps Montgomery Club members should get first crack at purchasing, with a public sale shortly after. There is no information yet on what the set will consist of. Does Topps do OS 5 & OS 6? Just OS5? Something else? Let the speculation begin! 2022 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire is scheduled for a 1/27/23 release date on Topps.com.

Odds for 2021 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire

2021 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire are starting to show up on collector’s doorsteps. Thanks to Twitter user SpaceCityPulls for posting the box odds. While Topps didn’t promise two hits per box in the listing, it does appear they are sticking to that based on the odds. Sadly Topps’ odds are not all the same when running the numbers. That could be due to rounding of the odds before printing. Regardless, based on the odds there are anywhere from a high of 23,141 boxes, based on Teal odds, to a low of 21,292, based on Pad odds. So right around 22,000 boxes of 2021 GPK Sapphire out there. Almost all boxes should have 2 hits, with some having 3. The box busted by this collector had 3 hits. Here are the odds:

2021 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire Odds

Aqua 1:11
Fuchsia 1:14
Green 1:21
Orange 1:41
Gold 1:68

Topps Launches 2021 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire

Garbage Pail Kids collecting changed forever with the release of GPK Sapphire at the end of 2020. Topps is back with the follow up set to the hugely successful initial release. Thanks to SPK for the pictures of the release. Today Topps launched 2021 Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire to Montgomery Club members. Montgomery Club is a yearly club Topps previously offered that allows for early prerelease purchase of exclusive online boxes. The 2021 label and box printing shows Topps had this set planned for a 2021 release, but was delayed like other GPK releases. The new set features all the original cards from OS 3 and OS 4. The additional four “B” name changes from OS 4 are also included, making the set a total of 170 cards. Each box contains 32 cards in eight 4-card packs. The lure of Sapphire are the various numbered parallels. While the first GPK Sapphire release advertised 2 parallels inside each box, the pictures of the new box do not show that same information. The new listing also does not promise any guaranteed parallels in each box. Topps does list the parallels available in the boxes, they added a new one numbered to /75. The parallels are; Blue /99, Fuchsia /75, Green /50, Orange /25, Gold /15, Purple /10, Red /5, and Pad 1/1. There are no odds listed to figure out possible print runs. Boxes are available for $129.99, plus shipping. The lists says boxes will ship in 15-25 days. Topps is limiting purchases to 1 box per account. While there have been no announcements from Topps, it’s expected there will be a public sale starting tomorrow, 9/21, to non Club members with similar order restrictions.
