* NOT INCLUDING 'BIZARRE HOLIDAYS' — SEPARATE PAGE *










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

AMC theatre was another stock affected by the mania, hence, Bernie Sanders innocently sleeping through a movie.

• Nat Nerd for a "Kinder, Gentler GPK Nation." This was not an easy election for Nat to win, by any means. Even after they misspelled his name* on the web he continued to show who should be club president. Many classic characters came out to be a part of the election process but couldn’t overtake the biggest Nerd of all. Congratulations to Nat Nerd for winning the first ever GPK Collectors Club election. Here is a list of the losers who couldn’t cut it. • Includes 20 stickers *the mock-up image for NAT Nerd read NATE Nerd.

7. Topps released an exclusive 5-card GPK set within their Future Stars Club monthly boxed subscription for March 2021. A partial, rehashed parody baseball set taken from the 2015 Series 1, heavily-themed baseball GPK release. Half of the original 10-card subset from 2015 was also reprinted images from previous Original Series releases, and the other half contained new images from the 2015 base set. Although the front of the Future Stars Club cards are the same, the backsides are completely new and include some fun facts and trivia.



FUN FACT for card back #4 references the 2020 R.L. Stine GPK book, as seen picture above, while card #1 TRIVIA asked "Can you name the year when the first GPK set was releaed? (1985), card #2 FUN FACT stated that "There was a GPK movie released back in 1987", card #3 TRIVIA asked "What is the name of the very first GPK? (1a Nasty Nick), and card #5 TRIVIA asked "When will the GPK celebrate their 40th Anniversary?" (2025). A pair of Topps headphones and a 2021S1 GPK Food Fight blaster tin rounded out the subscription box for March.

crocodile.jackson: I’M A GARBAGE PAIL KID, MOMMA! I’m super excited to announce that I’ve officially joined the @topps GPK family. I got to recreate one of the original 83 cards for BEYOND THE STREETS series 2 GPK box. Grab one of the box’s with my card (and 26 other amazing artists) from @beyondthestreetsart this Wednesday! Thank you so much for the opportunity @alexpardee and @topps

arteknyc: I created my own Garbage Pail Kids based on one of the classic @Topps GPK characters for the BEYOND THE STREETS. 3 Card Monty was a perfect fit and he inspired my Time Square series that always will be showing. The card is part of a a limited-edition collection of 83 cards featuring 26 AMAZING artists. [POST #2] Here is my other card which is a Garbage Pail Kids self-portrait called “Drewminatti” It shows a me in true GPK form and in my usual attire. The concept is pretty spot on as well. It shows my head exploding trying to get out all my ideas and pushing myself as an artist while being judged by critics and the gatekeepers of the Illuminati of the art world.

deferk2s: This project made me reminisce to the gritty 80”s the Garbage Pail Kids were the sign of the times @topps - it’s great to reignite this collection curated by @rogergastman

diego_bergia: YO! My 8 year old self would not believe this. I created my own Garbage Pail Kids self-portrait, paired with one of the classic @Topps GPK characters for the BEYOND THE STREETS Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Box.

jk5nyc: My Peoples!!! My 1st Garbage Pail Kid Cards aka “GPK5” Goes Live on the @ntwrk App tomorrow, Wednesday December 1 at 11am PST only at the @beyondthestreetsart virtual art fair. Attendance to the art fair is free-download the @NTWRK app to experience virtual festival, get live updates, and view the full, amazing lineup curated by the mighty @cleonpeterson I chose Mad Mike because i love Conan The Barbarian. Look closely for hidden information in his black body paint tattoos, his Thulsa Doom haircut and snake hair, and Snake themed fuzzy britches, all in honor of the classic film. His axe is now a book, “In With Anger Out With Love,” because reading is fundamental… He is Beyond the Pail, Because thank you @topps & @beyondthestreetsart ?????? and i created a bandaid font because we always need to HEAL… He is wielding a battle ravaged pencil sword, and one of the snakes is saying, Stay Fly…& lots of other encrypted things to discover!!A super fun translation from the original card from 1985, when i was 15.

jk5nyc: Live today at 11am PST only on the @NTWRK app! I had a blast doing this self-portrait entitled, “Farbridge Sail Lids” inscribed above my eyes… This image is inspired by The HR Giger(RIP) Designed cover, for Deborah Harrys 1981 album entitled, “KooKoo.” Felt appropriate. I have always done self portrait studies that reflect a style and theme im exploring at the time, going back to my childhood, and i aspired to render a chosen photo of myself slightly blended formally with the classic garbage pail/cabbage patch kid face. those are my actual throat, neck and upper chest tattoos, with Garbage Pail Kids patterns and elements. Who can decipher the alien glyph like writing on the headband? How about the writing in the lightning firey background? Love & thanks to my team, @rogergastman @cleonpeterson @topps @beyondthestreetsart @ntwrk and all the good vibes and camaraderie from my fellow artists and all of you out there on the world wide webs. Much Love, & Happy Holidaze, JK5
