Topps Launches Topps Now Loyalty Program

Today Topps announced a new customer loyalty program aimed at those customers that purchase the on demand online cards from their website. The Topps Now Loyalty Program consists of four tiers based on how much you spend on Topps Now cards. The amount is determined based on how much you spent on eligible cards during the last 365 days. Once you sign into your Topps account and accept the Terms and Conditions, your account is automatically placed in the Tier based off of your spending during 2016. It appears that purchased of Garbage Pail Kids do count towards the points earned.

The four tier levels consist of Rookie, All-Star, Hall of Fame, and Platinum. The Platinum tier is by invitation only from Topps and is reserved for those customers who spent the most on Topps Now cards in 2016. Platinum customers were mailed a exclusive nine card autographed set of baseball cards numbered /25 last week. All other customers who log in should see where they are on the tiers. You also have access to the benefits right away which include coupons or free Topps Now card of the month.

While the program does seem to initially be based around the Baseball cards on Topps Now, sales from Garbage Pail Kids do count towards your point total, (See picture below, pointed added to my account after GPK Hall of Lame purchase). To find out more about the new program check out the FAQ at Topps website. Be sure to login to your account now to start earning points and use your coupons!

The longer the week got the smaller the sales were. Today Topps revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy – The First 100 Days cards #139-#141, and GPK Network Spews cards #27-#29. The posted print runs were for both releases from Wednesday and Thursday this week.

The Wacky’s as a whole were down with two cards well under 200 copies. Topps went easy on collectors with just nine cards this week. With only three weeks until Trump hits 100 days in office there is sure to be many more coming soon. Here are the final results from Wed/Thur.

Topps Reveals Print Run for GPK Trumpocracy #137-#138 & Network Spews #26

After a slight delay, Topps today revealed the print run for Garbage Pail Kids Trumpocracy – The First 100 Days cards #137-#138 and GPK Network Spews #26. The first three card offering of the week saw solid sales, especially for the Trumpocracy cards. While the Network Spews sticker wasn’t a home run with collectors, the other Trumpocracy cards both sold about 40-50 cards above the average recent sales. Maybe the smaller daily offerings are easier to handle on consumers. It will be interesting to see if the trend continues the rest of the week. Here is the final results for the first batch of the week.

GPK Trumpocracy
#137 – Rat on Friends Flynn – 180
#138 – Mr. Toupee Head (Wacky) – 277

GPK Network Spews
