2020 Topps Garbage Pail Krashers Teach GPKs How to Drive

Share:

It took 35 years, but the Garbage Pail Kids have learned how to drive. 2020 Topps Garbage Pail Krashers combines classic GPK characters with Kustom Kulture artwork in the vein of Rat Fink and the card maker’s own 1980 Weird Wheels set.

Garbage Pail Krashers is another online-exclusive release under the broader Topps On-Demand umbrella. Sets were slated to available for one week starting August 27 but they sold out within a couple of hours.

2020 Topps Garbage Pail Krashers Header

A full set of 21 cards is part of each set purchase. It starts with a header card and proceeds to have ten additional gags. These combine some of the most well known original GPK characters with an appropriately designed car. Instead of the usual two-name approach to the checklist, one is for the character and the other is for the car. The backs for cards #1-9 form a puzzle of the header (#10 shows the finished puzzle). Cards 11-19 make a Leaky Lindsay puzzle with the final card back showing it in full.

The first ten cards appear in a trio of chase forms. Rough Art are two per set. These feature early drawings by Joe Simko, the artist behind Garbage Pail Krashers. License Plate Backs are also two per set.

Finally, there’s ten Posters. Measuring 5 x 7 inches, there’s one in each set.

Sketch cards are available but they’re a bonus in every other set.
