GetAGrip Skateboards surprised collectors today with a new skateboard deck launch. The Garbage Pail Kids Mike Air deck features basketball legend Michael Jordon as a GPK. The deck package comes with a lot of extras. A Blue Boil size 7 basketball, featuring Adam Bomb, comes with each order. There are two licensed collector cards, one mystery grip tape, 1 special series 4 wheel preview, and a wall hanger as well. The boards and basketball are both limited to 150 copies. The package can be purchased for $150 from GetAGrip’s website. This one is sure to sell out soon.
Their ship has finally come in! After months lost at sea, GetAGrip Skateboards is set to launch their Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Skateboard Wheels. The company had to skip this launch, and launched Series 3 wheels first, due to shipments delays with the series 2 wheels. There are 8 base wheels in this officially licensed set. Collectors have a 1:2 chance to pull a Pink Pimple Pus parallel wheel, and a 1:50 chance for the rare Black chase wheel. The wheels will go on sale tomorrow at GetAGrips’s website. Pricing and exact launch time haven’t been announced, but usually GetAGrip’s launches are at 1:00 PM EST. The company says wheels will ship this month!
GetAGrip Skateboards is back with another deck launch today. The company announced their Joe Blow character deck will be launching at 1:00 PM EST today at their website. Based on the advertisement photo the deck appears to come in three different colors; yellow, pink, and blue, with a simple Joe Blow in the middle. Each deck comes with two grip tapes, one of two different banner tapes, and one of two different character tapes. There is also a Joe Blow card, and two bubble gum air fresheners. No pricing is available yet for the deck. The week of GPK releases continue.
GetAGrip Skateboards is back with all the body fluids you can handle. They are set to launch their newest Garbage Pail Kids skateboard deck, Character Deck 4: Barf-A-Rama. The new deck features the artwork of Rory McQueen. Each deck will come with a triptych card featuring the same deck artwork, one random character grip tape, and an exclusive barf bag. The decks will be hand numbered and limited to 200 copies. The decks can be purchased starting tomorrow, 5/13/22, at 1:00 PM EST at GetAGrip’s website. Here is the information from the company on the new deck.

GetAGrip Skateboards has been busy teasing collectors all this week for their next release coming this Friday. In an interview on the new GPK Boys Podcast, GetAGrip artist Rory McQueen showed off examples of the newest skateboard deck. As collectors had already guessed, Dead Ted will be the character in the company’s latest Heritage Deck series. Rory also showed off three different parallel decks that will be randomly sent out to collectors. The company hasn’t released any other info yet. They generally don’t release pricing, print runs, or release time until the day of release. Collectors will want to stick to GetAGrip’s Facebook page for the latest information.
In the excellent GPK Boys interview, Rory also gives collectors a sneak peak at some of the Series 2 skateboard wheels. There is still no word when the wheels will launch from the company. Rory also mentions, Topps will be launching series 2 of Rory’s GPK Skateboard Sticker cards later this year. Be sure to check out the entire interview at their YouTube page.
