At the beginning of the new year, the Topps company continued to release another installment of their exclusive online brand of Garbage Pail Kids cards and product as specialized and limited items. This marks their sixth consecutive year offering a slew of unique online material to the masses, in between their larger retail releases that tends to cater to a much smaller niche of hardcore collectors. The Bizarre Holidays sets, found on their own page, started dropping on January 5th, and the first non-observance offering was the GPK Collectors Club, that dropped on January 21st, 2021 and sold out under forty minutes.

"The Topps Company, with a stable of legendary underground cartoonists created Garbage Pail Kids in 1985. The gross-out humor and subversive attitude appealed to the kids of the time and quickly became a massive success. As the Garbage Pail Kids’ notoriety grew, so too did their popularity on the playground. School administrators banning Garbage Pail Kids from school grounds further fueled their demand for more than a dozen additional card series.

This pop-culture phenomenon inspired plenty of tie-in items as toy and novelty stores experienced a wave of merchandise that included t-shirts, school folders, sticker albums, jewelry, key chains, and yes actual garbage pails. Today, that list of GPK merchandise has expanded to partnerships with Funko, FYE, Santa Cruz, Chalk Line, Geeki Tikis, WWE, Netflix, and more!

With over three decades of gross fun, Garbage Pail Kids is celebrating its 35th Anniversary in 2020. Look for more outrageous fun with card sets in hobby and retail stores, exclusive Topps.com sticker card sets, new video content, and even more fun collaborations!" — Topps

2. Topps released a parody of the GameStop / reddit scandal set called GPK GameStonk online for one week only from January 29 to February 05, 2021 and cost $19.99 per ten-card set, or $179.99 for ten bulk sets.

Within their set 'Description' section, the Topps Shop stated: "Includes 12 Stickers! 2021 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Gamestonk. Did you get rich off gamestop? Why not commemorate your stock market victory with this great GPK set.", a social media post, "Did you invest?

Check out the latest GPK sticker collection "Gamestonk"! Available for a limited time only."

NOTE: Elon Musk had tweeted "Gamestonk!!" after the Reddit's GameStop battle with Wall Street. AMC theatre was another stock affected by the mania, hence, Bernie Sanders innocently sleeping through a movie.
