GPKNation was one of the companies highlighted by Topps Licensing VP Ira Friedman on last week’s Philly Non-Sports Topps Virtual Chat. Now the Chief Operating Officer of GPK Nation, Louis Gregory; publicly known as “Uncle Louie” who also co-stars on ABC’s hit show The Goldbergs has shared with us that he has finished a new book and last year’s “Topps Sketch Artist of the Year” Jasmine Contois is hard at work illustrating it as we speak. Be sure to follow the GPKNation Facebook page for more updates.
GPKNation is set to continue to offer their limited GPK merchandise this week. First up will be a special Tuesday launch for a Black Adam Bomb Ornament Keychain. The keychains will be limited to only 50 made. Customers who order can also enter a door prize contest by entering their order number on the GPKNation Facebook group. The launch will be tomorrow, Tues. 10/13 at 1:00 PM EST.
That‘a not all they have planned this week. This Friday will be the launch of coin #2 in various colors. There will be 100 copies of the coin available in Nickel Plated White, Sterling Silver, and Artist Proof. There will also be 5 each of the coins in red, blue, green, purple, orange, and yellow. The coins will launch at 1:00 PM EST this Friday, 10/16.
GPKNation never sleeps it seems. After offering the final playing card coin last week, the company is going back to what got them started. They announced that starting this Friday, 10/9 @ 1:00 PM EST, they will be offering Garbage Pail Kids Challenge Coin #1 in a silver plated version. This will be the third version of the coin after the white and gold versions. GPKNation will be selling coin #2 on 10/16, and coin #3 on 10/23. Each coin is limited to 100 copies. The company promises there will be other surprises on sale throughout the month.
While this is the third version of the original coin being offered, that’s not all that exists. As Adam Goldberg and Louis Gregory were launching their endeavor they had six different color proofs made; red, blue, purple, yellow, orange, and green. After receiving the proofs, they couldn’t decide on a color and ended up offering the white version. There are /5 proof sets of each color that exist. Eventually the colors would spark the idea for the colors on the emblems and patches that GPKNation have sold.
GPKNation.com has another big week of officially licensed Garbage Pail Kids releases planned. They announced on their Facebook page they will be having a Pin Party this Tuesday. On Tuesday, 9/29, at 3:00 PM EST, they will be releasing a new version of the pins they previously offered. The five pins will be offered in a Misty Gold version. The pins are limited to /50 each, and will be sold individually and in a set of five. There will be a limit of one of each pin per order. That’s not all, they will also be offering a new Glow in the Dark version of the 35th anniversary coaster. There will be 350 coasters made, and there will be no purchase limit. Customers can enter a special drawing by entering their order number on the GPKNation Facebook page.
That’s not all they have planned this week. The final playing card challenge coin of Adam Bomb will launch this Friday, 10/2, at 1:00 PM EST. This is the last of the five large coins in this series. As with everything on GPKNation, these should go quickly. Collectors will need to be ready to purchase at launch.
Adam Goldberg and Louis Gregory are doing things very differently in the world of licensed GPK collectibles. A few weeks back Leo Challenge Coins begin offering weekly officially licensed GPK coins on their website GPKNation.com. They sold out quickly, within just a few mins. Gold plated versions soon followed, also selling out instantly.
They didn’t stop with just coins. Over the last couple of weeks collectors who are members of the GPN Nation Facebook group have been given exclusive access to pop up sales of officially licensed pins, keychains, and emblems. So far four pins; Sy Clops, Luke Warm, Mick Dagger, and Bony Jonie (/50), an Adam Bomb keychain (/25), and an Adam Bomb emblem set of 9 have been released. Collectors aren’t given very much notice of the sales. Sometimes just mins, other times a couple of hours. In all cases every item has sold out instantly.
The next item being offered has been given a few days notice. Louis begin teasing the newest coin to be offered this coming Friday. While no time has been announced, previous Friday sales have taken place at 1:00 PM EST. The large rectangular coin features Sy Clops on one side, with Adam Bomb on the other. The coin will be limited to /100. No other details, including pricing, have been revealed.
Collectors who want to add these limited coins, pins, and collectibles to their collections need to join the GPK Nation Facebook group, and keep your eyes peeled! You never know when the next item will pop up for sale.
