The news continued to get worse for Topps online sales with the print run of the set based off of the failed Fyre Festival concert. Last night Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Lord of the Flyes online set. As with sales of they daily online cards, this set offered for three days last week also set records for low sales. The GPK cards ended up the lowest sellers, with card #3a/b doing only 109 copies, a new low for GPK sales. The Wacky’s didn’t fare much better ending in the 120’s. With sales this low it will be interesting to see how Topps moves forward with online offers. Here is how the set ended up.
1: Lord of the Flyes Festival Poster – 125
2A: Caring Kendall/2B: Greedy Jenner – 117
3A: Ja Racket/ 3B: Rip Off Rule – 109
4: Steven Sad Jeeze! Sandwich – 126
