2019 Series 1 GPK We Hate the 90’s Sketch Card Preview

We are less than two weeks away from the next GPK release, 2019 Series 1 GPK We Hate the 90’s. Sadly there have not been many sketch previews posted by artists. After the leadership change at Topps last year, sketch artists are discouraged from showing off sketches until release date of the set. I’ll continue my soapbox here, this is a shortsighted decision by Topps. This is free publicity they are missing out on. This also hurts the artist who can use these previews to attract future commission work. However, being the GPK artists that they are, a few have begun showing off some of their work. While we don’t have much currently, I expect more will start show up during this next week. Continue to follow this post up until release date, and I’ll add sketch previews as I find them. So far 57 artists are confirmed to have completed sketches for the upcoming set. Below is a few of the examples that have been shown so far. (Note that all sketches must be approved by Topps before being inserted into packs. Also, Topps will hold sketches back for replacements.) All photos courtesy of the artist, their Facebook page and/or website. 2019S1 GPK We Hate the 90’s will hit stores on 1/16/19.
