Topps Licensee and GPK Nation co-founder Louis “Uncle Louie” Gregory shared that “This coin was made with Andy Artz and he is one of my favorite Topps Artists to work with. I wanted to develop a coin people could not just stick on a shelf and look at but one they could play with. As we drop additional versions, collectors will see how the removable pieces can be mixed and matched to create their own versions of this innovative Adam Bomb coin. Adam F. Goldberg and I endeavor to take our Certified Gross collection to an unprecedented level and are grateful to Ira Friedman, recently retired from Topps, for believing in our vision and can’t wait to build our brand with Fanatics and Topps.
