Topps today released six new Garbage Pail Kids Collector’s Binders. They are doing things a little differently this time around. First off, Topps continued their GPK binder series and released binders 17-20 (17-Dead Ted, 18-Scotty Potty, 19-Brainy Janie, 20-Up Chuck). Topps announced that binders 17-20 are limited to 100 copies each, with a cost of $19.99. Additionally, Topps released the anticipated 30th Anniversary binder, coming in two variations. The Pink Adam Bomb 30th Binder comes with Promo card “Let Them Eat Kate”, while the Blue Adam Bomb 30th binder comes with the Promo card “Marie Baguette”. The 30th binders look to be limited to 400 copies and cost the same $19.99. Head over to Topps online shop to order yours now.
Thanks to GPK collectors GGG and Keith Liddell they uncovered some interesting information on the website of one of the new artists for the GPK 30th set. Miran Kim who created the Trekkie Travis/Loony Leonard card for the 30th set also has another GPK painting on their site, http://mirankimart.blogspot.co.uk. There is a painting for an unreleased GPK, “Marie Baguette”. In the caption it says, “This is a sticker for Garbage Pail Kids 30th anniversary set and will be available at “Topps.com only”, there is A and B versions each sold with the two different versions of the “GPK 30th binder”. Release date is coming soon.” So does this mean we have new GPK binders incoming at topps.com?
The website also mentioned under the Trekkie Travis card that there is a foil version available in special Wal-Mart packs of the 30th Garbage Pail Kids set. Has anyone spotted anything in Wal-Mart?
