Topps Releases 2020 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids 35th Anniversary Checklist

With just one week to go before the delayed release date, Topps has released the checklist for 2020 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids 35th Anniversary set. As promised on the sell sheets, the base set contains 200 cards, 100 new paintings in a/b versions. Subsets are back for this set, however Topps kept the numbering 1-100a/b. The subsets are; All Grown Up (1-20a/b), Snot Another Anniversary (21-30a/b), 135th Anniversary Flash Forward (31-55a/b), 35 Years of GPK (56-90a/b), and Battle of the Decades (91-100a/b).

All the advertised insert sets are also on the checklist and closely use the same structure as the 2020S1 Back to School set. The Fan Favorites (Original art) insert set contains 20 cards, (1-10a/b), and come 2 per Fat Pack. These characters were decided based on voting a few months ago held by Topps. The Midlife Crisis (Simko/Engstrom) insert set is also 20 cards, (1-10a/b), and come 3 per Blaster Box. This is a change as the Late to School blaster insert was 10 cards. No Regerts Tattoos (Simko/Engstrom/Gross/McWilliams) is a 10 card insert set found only in Retail Display boxes. Finally, GPK Wacky Packages (Gross/McWilliams) and Location Relic cards are both 10 cards, and both are only in Collector boxes. There is also one unannounced insert set that will be a rare insert in packs.

The four final card artists, Joe Simko, Brent Emgstrom, David Gross, and Smokin Joe McWilliams each did 25 base card paintings, and their autographs can be found in packs. Finally, the sketch artist checklist contains 52 artists, including one artist making his GPK debut, Karl Jones. This is an increase of 11 from the Late to School set.
