2018 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Golden Groans Spoof Golden Globe Nominees
The 2018 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Golden Groans put Golden Globe nominees in their sights. That means new cards spoofing critically acclaimed movies and TV shows (but mostly movies).
The first set of Garbage Pail Kids online exclusives of 2018, the checklist has 12 total cards (six A/B name variation pairs) and comes with a $29.99 price tag.
Put on sale on Friday, January 5, they’re available on the Topps website for a week, through the 12th. The Golden Globes took place on Sunday, January 7.
Game of Thrones, The Shape of Water, The Disaster Artist and I, Tonya are among the subjects that are spoofed. And while the art is new, some of the gags are based on classic Garbage Pail Kids as far as composition goes. For example, Dwight Walker/Icy Isaac is a take on the White Walker from Game of Thrones. The pose is clearly that of Jay Decay/Dead Ted from the original 1985 Series 1.
2018 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Golden Groans have an open-ended print run. What’s ordered is what’s printed. Topps will announce production runs shortly after the sales window closes.
