At the beginning of the new year, starting in February, 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, under the tutelage of the Fanatics group, the new owners. This marks their seventh 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. No 2022 GPK Collectors Club has been announced.

"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
