2016 GPK Set to Feature Past Spinoffs in Blaster Boxes

As Topps is set to release 2016 Garbage Pail Kids American as Apple Pie In Your Face set next week, new details are coming out on some surprises they have in store. As we mentioned in an article last week, Retail Blaster boxes will include 3 Gross Bears cards per box. GPKworld.com broke news on their Facebook page that those Gross Bears cards will be based off the 1985 Topps Gross Bears Button set. GPK World also mentioned those cards will be found in Walmart Blaster boxes. GPK World also reported that Target Blaster boxes will contain 3 Bathroom Buddies cards, based off a 90’s GPK spinoff set.

Finally GPK World offered up a sneak peak at the wrapper art for this set.

Loaded and Panoramic Sketch Cards to be in Retail

16gpk-aaapOnline retailer Steel City Collectibles has begun online pre-orders for Blaster boxes of the upcoming 2016 GPK American as Apple Pie In Your Face set. New information posted on their website gives some insight into what can be found in both Blaster boxes and Jumbo Retail packs.

Perhaps the biggest news is Loaded Sketch cards will move to Blaster boxes. In the previous GPK release those sketches were found in Collector boxes. Panoramic Sketch cards, which in the previous release were in Blasters, will now be in Jumbo retail packs.

“Bonus” cards also look to be a thing of the past, as in the previous release. Blaster boxes will contain 3 Gross Bears stickers while Jumbo packs will contain 1 Patriotic GPK reprint per pack. It also appears Green parallels will return to retail packs once again. No word yet on Target or Walmart exclusive parallels.

The next set is due to hit store shelves on Jan. 20th. See below for more info on retail offerings.

  • 16 boxes per case.

Jumbo Pack Retail Odds for GPK 30th Set

Thanks to GPK collector Joey Robergelund who was the first to post a image of the Jumbo pack odds. You’ll find these packs in your local Target. Quite a bit of difference on the odds. You’ll notice the odds are 1/2 on everything compared to all the other packs. Since these Jumbo packs contain 21 cards, I believe Topps is considering them as 2 regular packs. Therefore, the odds are in half. You end up spending the same for the same odds basically. You will also see the Retail “bonus” cards are expanded this year. In each Jumbo pack comes a reprint from the 1986 Giant Series 2, a total of 15 cards. In the Blaster boxes the “bonus” card is a reprint from the 1986 Poster Set, a total of 18 cards.
