Topps Delays Garbage Pail Kids Chrome OS 4

After announcing delays for 2021S2 GPK on Vacation last week, Topps today announced 2021 Garbage Pail Kids Chrome OS 4 is also delayed. According to Topps, the set is now scheduled for “January TBD”. Only one Topps product has a release date in January, with eight being moved to TBD. At this point Topps doesn’t have a good handle on exactly when the set will release. The move was fully expected, as Topps has had numerous problems throughout the past year getting products printed due to the Covid Pandemic and increased demand for trading cards. GPK Chrome 4 was originally planned to release in November, but was quickly changed to 12/31/21 just after the product was announced. Topps will continue the update the release date as they get clearer information from their printers.
