Today is the launch of the first GPK set to appear on Topps new NFT platform. In preparation for the launch, Topps Digital announced the challenges for Garbage Pail Kids Non-Flushable Tokens NFT set. There are three categories collectors can chase when busting packs of the new set. The challenges are open beginning 11/27/22, and end on 12/8/22 at 1:00 PM EST. The big challenge is challenge A – Set Collection Challenge. To qualify for this challenge collectors must collect 120 different NFTs in the set, all rarities except for Legendary. Challenge B is a Mini-Set Collection Challenge. There are a number of options in this category for collectors to collect all NFTs of a certain rarity for certain groups of similar characters. Finally challenge C – Artist Collection Challenge has collectors collecting all the NFTs of a certain rarity for the individual artists. All the details, including checklists can be found on the ToppsNFTs Blog. Awards for each challenge will be revealed at a later date. Packs for the new NFT set go on sale later today, 11/17/22, at 1:00 PM EST.
Topps Digital today announced they would be reducing the number of packs for sale for the upcoming 2022 Garbage Pail Kids Non-Flushable Tokens NFT set. They have decided to offer 50% of the original announced amount. There will now only be 1,920 packs available, instead of 3.840. Pack pricing and odds will remain the same. Topps has struggles to sell recent launches on their new ToppsNFTs.com platform. Offering a lower amount could lead to more interest and a rarer product. Packs are scheduled to go on sale tomorrow, 11/17 at 1:00 EST.
Topps is officially bringing Garbage Pail Kids back into the digital NFT world. Today the company announced 2022 Garbage Pail Kids Non-Flushable Tokens NFT Collection. The set features brand new art with gags based on NFTs and the Crypto industry. All artwork on the set was completed by artists Joe Simko, Brent Engstrom, David Gross, Justin Gammon, Darrin Pepe, and Jerad Hill. The base set consists of 24 cards, there are no a/b versions in this set, all different artwork. In addition to the base set, there are five additional variations of the cards to collect in different rarities. Each card is available in; Base (Common), Facsimile Signature (Uncommon), Animation (Rare), Animation Facsimile Signature (Super Rare), Golden Animation (Epic), and Golden Animation Facsimile Signature (Legendary).
There will be just one pack type for sale. Each pack will cost $40 and contain 8 NFTs. Each pack guarantees at lease 1 Uncommon and 1 Rare or higher NFT. There will be a total of 3,840 packs of the collection for sale by Topps. Collectors have the following chances of pulling the following variations; Common (39.1%), Uncommon (28.1%), Rare (18.8%), Super Rare (9.4%), Epic (3.1%), and Legendary (1.5%). Topps has promised there will be collection challenges and prizes announced soon.
This set marks GPK’s return to the digital NFT world after a long absence. The set is being released on Topps new ToppsNFTs.com platform. Collectors who were familiar with Topps’ previously released GPK NFTs on the WAX Blockchain will want to take note of the differences between the two platforms. ToppsNFTs.com is on the Avalanche Blockchain. Topps has built their own closed platform and marketplace to house all their NFTs. This means collectors no longer have to purchase tokens to buy NFTs. All sales of packs and individual cards are done via credit card. Since the new platform is a closed system, many of the features found on WAX do not yet exists on ToppsNFTs.com. NFTs can only be bought and sold on the new website. Minimum listing price per NFT is $2. There is no wallet access, therefore NFTs can not be traded. NFTs also can’t be moved off of the platform. Other GPK NFTs on the WAX Blockchain also can not be moved onto the new platform. International withdrawal is in its infancy, and has only launched for a couple of countries. Topps has also had numerous growing pains with errors and uptime on their website. Topps has promised many of these features, with updated timelines well into 2023-2024.
Collectors who don’t already have an account setup will want to make sure they complete some steps ahead of time. They should go to ToppsNFTs.com and create a new account. In order to buy and sell NFTs on the platform, collectors will need to verify their identity on the new account within the account settings. They can also add a credit card for payments and bank information for withdrawals.
The 2022 GPK Non-Flushable Tokens NFT Collection is set to launch on 11/17/22 at 1:00 PM EST. The complete checklist, including pictures of all the base cards, can be found here. Below are some examples of the animations and press release from Topps for the release.

Topps NFT digital cards are back. Topps Digital announced today they will be giving away daily Garbage Pail Kids NFTs at this year’s New York Comic Con. Collectors attending the show who already have a ToppsNFT account, or creates one at the show, can reserve a unique GPK “CMYK” variant each day of the show at the Topps Digital booth (#2819). Collectors will need to give their account information daily to a Topps Digital staff member to reserve that day’s NFT. The NFTs will be delivered to collector’s accounts prior to the end of 2022.
The NFTs themselves are “printing plate” themed motion NFTs of artwork that has been done by Joe Simko. Simko’s autograph also appears on each motion NFT. Thursday’s card is the Cyan version, Friday is Megenta, Saturday is Yellow, and Sunday is Key (Black). These are the first GPK NFTs Topps have released since the Food Fight NFTs in early 2021. Topps NFT business has under gone immense changes since that time. Previously, Topps launched NFTs on the Wax Blockchain. Topps now launches all their NFTs on their own website toppsnfts.com, which is on the Avalanche Blockchain. Their new website has gone through some growing pains since the launch. Many features collectors were used to on the Wax blockchain are still awaiting implementation, and are listed on the company’s roadmap. Collectors can buy and sell NFTs on the website using a credit card, no interaction with crypto currencies is required. After focusing mainly on Soccer and Baseball NFTs in 2022, Topps does have plans for a GPK NFT set. The roadmap for ToppsNFTs shows a GPK set listed under Q4 Content launches.
After the 48 hour sales window ended, the sales results are in for Garbage Pail Kids Nifty Kids NFTs. A total of 2,396 Nifty Kids packs were distributed during the event. There were originally 10,000 packs made available for the sale. Not all packs were sold as the company distributed a number of free packs to makeup for an early error during the event.
During the opening hours of the sale an error in attributes was spotted by collectors. The attributes were reversed on the NFT and did not match the picture or ID of the Nifty Kid character. Raredrop was able to identify and resolve the problem pretty quickly, and packs opened up later in the day were correct. Anyone who opened a pack and received an “error” Nifty Kid was automatically airdropped a free pack for each error they opened. The following day the company launched a “fix it” button for collectors who want their Nifty Kid corrected. The button burns the error NFT and issues a new corrected Nifty Kid with a new ID.
After the sale ended, Raredrop and Topps announced they would be launching a Re-roll feature to anyone who has opened a Nifty Kid. The feature will give collectors the option to turn in their current Nifty Kid and be issued a new one from the random generator. They Re-roll event will remain open until all the remaining 7,604 Nifty Kids have been issued. Topps has not yet released the time when the Re-roll event will begin.
Topps today announced Garbage Pail Kids Nifty Kids, a brand new digital NFT product on the WAX blockchain. The new NFT set is set to be available on 10/28/21 at 1:00 PM EST. This NFT set will be unlike anything Topps has offered before. Nifty Kids will offer 10,000 unique GPK combinations available as 1/1 NFTs. To purchase a random combination, collectors will go to the RareDrop.io website. Collectors can also browse all the combinations on the website. Each combination can only be purchased once, so every NFT GPK character will be different and a 1/1. Each GPK Nifty Kid can be purchased for 329 WAX, which is nearly $100 based on current market pricing. There are six different characters with six different body pieces; body, head, eyes, accessories, mouth, and hairstyle. The characters available are Adam Bomb, Dead Ted, Mad Mike, Nasty Nick, Tee-Vee Stevie, and Wrapping Ruth. With six characters and six different body parts, there are 46,656 unique combinations possible, but Topps is limiting the purchase to 10,000 for this series. The Nifty Kids will only be available to purchase for 48 hours. Topps says it is planning to use these Nifty Kids in the future to unlock free NFT airdrops, an exclusive member area in discord, and more. See pictures below for each kid as themselves with their own pieces before being mixed up, as well as some random versions.
2021 has been a year marked by transition for collectors who have collected Topps NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens). Topps originally launched their NFT project on the WAX Blockchain back in May 2020 with the release of Garbage Pail Kids OS 1. Topps went on to launch numerous GPK sets as well as other brands like MLB and Godzilla. The last time GPK collectors saw NFTs from Topps was the Food Fight release in Feb 2021. After the early 2021 NFT releases, Topps went quiet. All releases stopped and communication from the company on Telegram and Discord ceased. This was until the launch of the Bazooka Joe NFT brand on the ToppsNFTs.com website in July. Much to collector’s surprise, Topps new website was built to use the AVAX blockchain (Avalanche). Since the launch of Bazooka Joe, Topps has launched other brands like MLB, Bundesliga soccer, and Godzilla on their new ToppsNFTs.com website. Topps representatives have returned to online groups like Discord, and have been participating in answering users questions. However, the company has not been clear on the future of Topps NFTs, their partnership with WAX, and GPK NFTs. After months of inactivity on WAX, the company returns with the new GPK Nifty Kids set.
Since the launch of ToppsNTS.com, Topps representatives haven’t revealed much on the future of their partnership with WAX and what is to become of the legacy NFTs already released on the WAX platform. WAX representatives recently revealed in Telegram that Garbage Pail Kids NFTs are contractually tied to the WAX blockchain based on their contract with Topps. The remaining length of the contract has not been made public. GPKNews has asked Topps for comment on the claims made by the WAX representatives, but Topps has not issued any comments on their current relationship with WAX. Topps has also not shared any other future plans for GPK NFTs, including any future pack based releases. These unanswered questions bring a lot of uncertainty for collectors. GPKNews has asked Topps if they will continue with GPK NFTs on WAX, or move them to their own platform, once any contractual agreements end. Again, Topps has not responded to questions on their future roadmap for GPK NFTs. GPKNews asked Topps if their legacy WAX NFT projects would continue to be supported. The various GPK releases are spread across multiple websites and NFT standards. GPKNews also asked if there would be a bridge in the future to move legacy GPK NFTs from WAX to their new ToppsNFTs.com wallet. Again, Topps did not respond to any questions regarding support for legacy WAX NFTs. This also includes questions to Topps on the announced Tiger King burn event they had been working on prior to the launch of their new website. Until Topps is willing to share their roadmap and partnership info with WAX, collectors are left to speculate on the future of GPK NFTs.
Topps Digital will be all about the Food Fight this week. To coordinate with Topps physical release, Topps Digital is making huge steps forward in luring collectors to digital GPKs. For the first time, boxes of 2021 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight physical cards contain redemption cards for WAX Blockchain GPK Packs. Each boxed product, Blasters, Retail Display, and Collector Boxes contain one redemption card. Redemption cards can also be found 1:4 Fat Packs. Redemption cards feature the artwork of GPK artist Nik Castaneda, who previously did artwork for the digital OS 2 set and also did sketch cards in the physical set. The back of the card features a scratch off code and instructions for redeeming. Collectors who pull a redemption can redeem the code at https://play.toppsapps.com/redeem. New collectors to the WAX Blockchain can create a new account and WAX wallet at the site as well. There doesn’t appear to be an expiration date on the redemption card. The redemption website officially launches on 2/24.
Each redemption code can be redeemed for a 3 card pack of Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight. The cards in the digital set are different from the physical cards. The digital set contains 11 new pieces of artwork all done by Nik Castaneda. Redemption packs contain 3 “a” cards from the all new digital set. The cards are available in five different rarities. Collectors have the chance to pull Base, Prism, Sketch, Artist Autograph, and Golden. Cards are on the Atomic Assets NFT standard and packs can be opened and cards viewed at the Atomic Hub website. The first 10,000 redemption packs will be pre-minted. This will enable more collectors to have the chance at pulling low minted cards. Any redemptions after 10,000 will be minted on demand.
You may be asking yourself, if I can get the “a” cards from redemption packs, how do I get the “b” names. The answer lies in this week’s Topps Digital Winter Con 2021. Winter Con is scheduled to take place 2/25-2/28, and is completely virtual. During those dates, Topps will be offering 3 card packs for sale. Packs will be on sale during the Con. Each day of the Con there will be 2,450 packs available for sale. The launch time varies each day, collectors will want to attend Topps Winter Con to find out the release times on a daily basis. The packs will only be able to be purchased via credit card. Packs purchased at Winter Con contain 3 “b” cards, with collectors having the same chance to pull five different versions; Base, Prism, Sketch, Artist Autograph, and Golden. Unlike the redemption packs, the Winter Con packs will not be pre-minted. The first packs opened will receive low mints.
During today’s Topps Digital Digicast on Twitch, it was announced there will be a new Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight digital set with packs for sale on WAX during next week’s Topps Winter Con 21. Not a lot of details were shared about the upcoming set. Packs will be available and sold on the WAX Blockchain during every day of the Winter Con, scheduled for 2/25-2/28. These packs are separate from the redemption codes that will be inserted into boxes and packs of physical GPK Food Fight Packs. There is sure to be much more information in the coming days.
In other news, Topps Digital tweeted out the picture above this morning showing some of the various card types that can be pulled via the redemption codes that can be found in physical GPK Food Fight boxes and packs. There appears to be prism, gold, and artist autographs. No other details have been revealed about the redemption program yet.
Update: After talking to Topps they have confirmed with GPKNews that all product SKUs will contain NFT codes, 1 per box (Fat Packs will be 1:4.)
Topps Digital continues to get serious about getting collectors involved in the digital NFTs on the WAX Blockchain. Today, via their Twitter account, they announced there will be codes inserted into Blasters of 2021 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight that can be redeemed for exclusive GPK WAX Blockchain collectibles. The included picture shows artwork done by GPK artist Nik Castaneda. No other details around the promotion has been released yet. More info to come! 2021S1 Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight is scheduled to be released on 2/24/21.
Update: Packs went on sale and promptly sold out in 17 mins. Here are the odds for the various cards.
Topps Digital is continuing their recent renewed focus on GPK launches today by launching Garbage Pail Kids Gamestonk on the WAX Blockchain. The set is based off the wildly popular online physical GPK Gamestonk set sold just a couple weeks ago. However, there are two new pieces of artwork for the set. The set contains 12 cards, 4 pieces from the physical set, and 2 new pieces, all with a/b versions. (5-6a/b from the physical set were replaced by the new cards.) The new cards were illustrated by Lars Kommienezuspadt and colored by Adam Mathison-Sward. This release is a little different than the recent Burnventure release, similar to other GPK mini releases. Packs are planned to go on sale at the Atomic Assets website at 6:00 PM EST. There are a total of 5000 packs available. Packs can only be purchased using WAX tokens. Each 3 card pack will cost the equivalent of $10 in WAX. For the first time the cards in the packs will be pre-minted. That means everyone will have the same chance at receiving a low mint numbered card in each pack. No longer do the first packs opened get the rewards. There is no burn mechanic planned for this release. Collectors opening packs will have the chance to pull base cards (B – Common/A – Uncommon), along with parallels; Prismatic (B – Rare/A – Epic), Sketch (B – Rare/A – Epic), Raw (Epic), Gold (Legendary), and Signature (Legendary) (only for 2 new pieces.) This article will be updated after the release with info on cards odds and sellout status.
