Similar to the recent GPK Gone Exotic sets that poked fun at Netflix’s Tiger King, the Crash Gordon set is small and available only through Topps’ website. It has a one-week sales window from August 13-20 with individual sets costing $19.99. A ten set bundle runs $179.99.

It’s another print-to-order release with the production numbers limited to the initial purchases.

The 2020 Topps GPK: Crash Gordon 40th Anniversary checklist has ten total cards. It uses five different gags, each getting the tradition A-B name variations.

There are no chase cards this time around.

Released in late 1980, Flash Gordon was something of a hit at the time. However, its campy ways have helped the space opera endure and develop a massive cult following in the decades since. Sam J. Jones stars in the titular role.
