Garbage Pail Kids to be Part of Topps International Trading Card Day

Card shop owners from across the country are gathered this week in Arizona for the yearly Topps Industry Summit. This year’s conference has featured both Topps employees with Fanatics leadership discussing how the trading card industry moves forward. As usual, the discussions and news coming from the conference is focused on baseball and other sports properties that Topps manages. However, there’s always a nugget or two of Garbage Pail Kids information that comes from the show. Today, during one of Topps presentations, information was shared on Topps plans for this year’s International Trading Card Day. Previously, National Trading Card day, was only available in the US and focused on baseball cards. Topps is expanding the skope and presence of the event this year. On August 6th collectors in the US, UK, Japan, and Germany will be able to go into a participating hobby store and pick out a free pack of either MLB, UEFA, Star Wars, or Garbage Pail Kids cards. The cards for this type of event are usually specifically for the event, so collectors can expect something new. Mark your calendars and plan to get to your local hobby store on 8/6/22!
