Topps will bring more parallels to the mix Black (One in every two pack), hobby-only Silver (1:24) and Gold (numbered to 85 cards each). One of the new inserts this year includes Adam Bombing, a take on the iconic card through history. These cards will also have rare parallels: Black (1:24), Silver (1:100) and Gold (#’d to 85).
Collectors can expect to find a number of hits in GPK including Sketch Cards, Artist Autographs, Printing Plates and Be a GPK Code Cards.
The Adam Bombing (1:4) insert will show 10 historical figures going atomic just as Adam Bomb did in the original Garbage Pail Kids.
Sticker Scenes (1:6) will show 10 scenes of Garbage Pail Kids interacting with each other and Motion Cards (1:12) will feature GPK on lenticular cards.
Collectors will get a chance to become a Garbage Pail Kid. Topps will insert 50 GPK Sweepstakes code cards into packs and five fans will get picked. The promotion runs from October 2013 to January 2014. The winner will be announced in the spring 2014 release.
