2016 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Not-Scars target Academy Award nominees


2016 Topps GPK Not-Scars Leonardo Dicaprio

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

Although there are a handful of cards out there for the 2016 Academy Award nominees, the number really is quite small. Topps did their part, though with a late entry into the category. 2016 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Not-Scars is another limited edition release made available on their website.

The 2016 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Not-Scars target eight nominees and Academy Awards host Chris Rock. Leonardo DiCaprio, who finally got an Oscar for The Revenant, is the only one of the four acting winners to appear on the checklist. The names focus more on the more marquee stars. Among them are Matt Damon, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Kate Winslet.

Like recent political Garbage Pail Kids and a set targeting music’s Grammy Awards, Not-Scars cards were available two ways. Pairs of individual actors cost $9.99. A full set of 18 cards (nine different A and B variations) was $49.99. Only available on the Topps website for 24 hours, each was printed to order.

    I bought some of the presidential ones but was disappointed in the card stock and Topps poor packaging they shipped these in. For $50 a set I at least expected my cards would have been protected better, but they were all bent up when I received them. So I would tell everyone to skip these releases until Topps takes more care in shipping their products.

    Larry, you realize GPK are stickers, not card. You got stickers, which is what they are supposed to be.

    As far poor packaging, that’s another story and Topps should do a better job with their shipping.

    Actually chuck they are in fact NOT stickers. They are printed on photo paper similar to the Kodak paper I use in my home printer. They may say sticker on the back but they are in fact NOT stickers which is another complaint I should have stated in my previous post.
