Garbage Pail Kids collectors are going to need to continue to show more patience this summer on the release of upcoming retail sets. In their regular email to distributors today on release dates for upcoming products, Topps has updated the date for 2021S2 GPK Vacation and 2021 Chrome OS 4 to “June TBD”. 2022S1 GPK Book Worms remains with its original 7/27/22 release date. The sets continue to see delays due to paper shortages and printer demands for trading cards. Topps continues to show four total products from 2021 with TBD dates. Just because Topps mentions June, doesn’t mean collectors should necessarily expect the sets to release in June. For products that are TBD, Topps hasn’t started the printing process yet. GPK artist David Gross has been telling collectors for months now that despite Topps only moving the dates a month at a time, the sets really are in an indefinite delay until Topps can address shortages. Many online sellers continue to use the last Wed. of the month as a placeholder date, so collectors should not depend on those dates from sellers. Artwork for all three sets, including artists autographs has been completed, and work continues on future retail releases.
