Topps Delays 2021S2 Garbage Pail Kids Goes On Vacation

GPK collectors are going to have to wait a little bit longer for their next retail fix. Topps has confirmed with GPKNews that the upcoming 2021 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids GPK Goes on Vacation set has been delayed. Topps already had a pretty good idea they wouldn’t be able to meet the original launch date when sell sheets were sent out. Originally the sell sheet listed the cards would be in stores September 2021. However, the case SKU sheets sent to distributors gave a conflicting release date of 11/24/21. Topps has now confirmed the set won’t hit the September date. With demand in trading card industry exploding in 2021, Topps has had to delay the majority of their products as they struggle to find printers to meet demand. Topps told GPKNews there is no new official release date as of yet. Topps has been releasing release date updates to distributors on a monthly basis. Currently most large online card sellers have the 11/24/21 date listed as the release date. GPK Chrome OS 4 is in a similar place. Conflicting dates were also seen on sell sheets and case SKU sheets when they were sent to distributors. Topps is currently shooting for a late December release for GPK Chrome 4.
