2020S2 Garbage Pail Kids 35th Anniversary Retail Set Delayed by Topps

Topps giveth and Topps taketh away! After announcing the first set of 2021 earlier today, now word is coming that the 35th anniversary set has been delayed by Topps. All major online retailers, including GTS, DA Cardworld, Blowout Cards, and Steel City Collectibles, have changed the release date of the set to 10/28/20. Topps has confirmed with GPKNews that the set has been delayed. The new date will come 5 weeks after the original release date of 9/23/20. No reason has been given for the delay. Sketch artists are already returning sketches, and final card artists have their cards to autograph for the set. However, due to the current pandemic Topps has seen multiple delays with the majority of their retail releases. It appears GPK isn’t immune to that. GPK Chrome OS 3’s date has not changed so far, that release is still schedule for 11/25/20. This will put the 35th set only 4 weeks before Chrome, with 2021S1 to follow 8 weeks later. It’s going to be a busy 12 weeks for collectors.
