Sales for the latest weekly holiday GPK set rebounded in a big way. After ending earlier today, Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Bizarre Holidays Nov. Week 3. The set sold a total of 630 copies. This is the second highest selling of the weekly sets so far. It also is over 200 more than the sales from last week’s set. Month eight is ending this week, with Topps set to move into month nine next week.

The set also comes with one yellow parallel card. Each set can be purchased for $19.99, or in a lot of ten for $179.99. There are also 10×14 posters of each card available for $19.99.

Sales were not lame for the latest rock and roll legends. Today Topps revealed the print run for 2020 Garbage Pail Kids Rock N Roll Hall of Lame online set. The set sold a total of 719 copies. Those sales numbers are very strong for a one time online set with no sketches. GPK continues to be in high demand as 2020 starts to wrap up.
It took Topps a couple of days, but today they revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Bizarre Holidays Nov. Week 2. The set sold a total of 403 copies. This is the lowest selling of the weekly holiday sets to date. The sales are down quite a bit from the previous weeks. The previous low was the Sept. week 2 set that sold 420 copies. Was this an abnormality or as retail products are now coming out, are collectors running out of money?
Topps got another early start this morning while launching Garbage Pail Kids Trashy Treasures Series 2. Just like the first series, there are five figures available. Double Heather sold out almost immediately after being listed for sale. Spilt Kit also sold out in under an Aa a hour. As of press time Nat Nerd, Peeled Paul, and Brainy Janey are all still available. Also like the first series, collectors have the chance of receiving a parallel figure. However, this time Topps did not reveal how many of each parallel is available, nor did they reveal the total print run of each character. The parallels available are; Red (Most Common), Green (Common), Black (Rare), Silver (Very Rare), and Gold (1of1). Each figure is available for $19.99. No free shipping is available, customers are charged based on geographic area. There is no time clock on the sale of the figures, they look to be available until they sell out. Here are pictures of the various figures with some parallels.
In their daily sales email, Topps teased the launch of Garbage Pail Kids Trashy Treasures. According to the email the new figures will launch on Topps.com tomorrow. Spilt Kit was shown in the email. The Nat Nerd figure was shown by Topps last month at the virtual Philly Non-Sport show.

Nov. started off a lot like Oct. ended for the weekly holiday sets. After ending Tuesday, Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Bizarre Holidays Nov. Week 1. The set sold a total of 472 copies. That was just two copies less than the last week of Oct. sold. While Topps has been unable to attract new collectors to the set, they’ve done a great job keeping the same group coming back weekly to purchase.
