GPK Nation is back with Garbage Pail Kids officially licensed merchandise. The company announced last night their new Certified Gross line that will debut with a GPK themed Michael Strahan challenge coin and card. Artwork for the Strahan was done by Neil Camera. The company said there will be four different foil versions, including rainbow. They will also be gold foil numbered. For the first time the coin will come with a licensed GPK card. Strahan will also be autographing inserts. The video below shows prototype versions of the coin and card, but the final card will have the GPK banner.
