Topps Reveals Print Run for Garbage Pail Kids Bizarre Holidays Mar. Week 3

Better late than never. After ending over a week ago, Topps finally revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Bizarre Holidays Mar. Week 3. The set sold 511 copies. That number is down slightly from the first two sets in March, but falls right in line with the majority of sets. So how about the March Week 4 set? After 51 weeks, the forth set from March was scheduled to be the final set in the Bizarre Holidays year long series. However, Topps has not launched the set. Artwork for the set was completed by the original planned release date of 3/23, but now two weeks have come and gone with no GPK releases. No one is willing to talk about why the set hasn’t been released. Topps has not responded to a request from GPKNews on a reason why the set wasn’t launched. Collectors are left to speculate on why the set hasn’t launch, and when/if it will.

Controversy sells. After ending yesterday, Topps revealed the print run of 2021 Garbage Pail Kids The Shammy Awards. The set sold a total of 1426 copies. The sales is nearly 1000 more than last year’s Shammy set. Despite Topps pulling the BTS cards from the set, and offering refunds to anyone wanted it, the set still pulled in great sales. Wether it was the controversy around the set, or just the recent surge in demand for GPK, Topps has to be happy with the sales results of this yearly set.

Details on Garbage Pail Kids Collector Club Set 1 Trash Can-Didates

Members of Topps’ Garbage Paul Kids Collector’s Club have begun receiving shipping notices for the first set of the club. Topps has posted some information on their website. The GPK Collector Club now has its own page under the clubs section of the website. Within that section are details on the first set, Trash Can-Didates. The set appears to be cards of the characters that ran for election of the club. The checklist shows 20 cards and 1 header card. The description of the set reads:

Nat Nerd for a “Kinder, Gentler GPK Nation.” This was not an easy election for Nat to win, by any means. Even after they misspelled his name on the web he continued to show who should be club president.  Many classic characters came out to be a part of the election process but couldn’t overtake the biggest Nerd of all. Congratulations to Nat Nerd for winning the first ever GPK Collectors Club election. Here is a list of the losers who couldn’t cut it.

Sets should be arriving in members mailboxes any day. Here is a copy of the checklist in PDF form.
