Topps Launches Garbage Pail Kids Taste Buds Series 1

After teasing the set earlier in the week, today Topps launched Garbage Pail Kids Taste Buds Series 1. The set features various owners of craft breweries around the world as GPKs. The set is curated by Topps Project 70 artist Keith Shore, who is also involved with one of the brewers, Mikkeller. Instead of gags focused on beer or the company’s logos/mascots, artists were asked to draw the owners and their personal likes as GPKs. The first set in the series features 20 breweries. Each brewery is available in an a/b version, plus a checklist card for a total of 41 cards in the set. Topps is selling a pack of 10 cards, plus one gold parallel card. Which means collectors will have to purchase multiple packs to complete the set. Each pack can be purchased for $19.99, 5 for $94.99, 10 for 179.99, or 20 for $319.99. Shipping is free when choosing the Economy/Smart Post option. The set will be available on for 30 days. Additionally, each of the participating breweries is expected to have a number of boxed complete sets available for purchase. There is no information yet on set structure. quantity, or pricing for sets sold in breweries.
