The popular trading card company Topps has just launched the “2021 Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight†series today, and the trading card packs are being sold at Target and Walmart stores. Not only will the Garbage Pail Kids (GPK) series provide people with collectible cardboard trading cards, Topps has also inserted blockchain-based rare code cards, which can be redeemed for exclusive GPK non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles on the Wax blockchain.

Blockchain and GPK

Since the eighties, the Garbage Pail Kids (GPK) has been a popular trading card series created by the company Topps. The firm Topps was founded in 1938 and has created collectible cards for a myriad of sports and hobbies for decades. Topps also owns Bazooka bubblegum, Ring Pop, Push Pop, and Baby Bottle Pop candies.

The Garbage Pail Kids launched in 1985 and were distributed by the trading card company Topps. GPK artwork was originally designed by the artists’ John Pound, Tom Bunk, Joe Simko, and Layron DeJarnette. In 2020, Topps launched the first iterations of digital GPKs on the Wax blockchain as shown above.

More recently, GPK cards have grown in popularity again, after making headlines back in the eighties. Series one packs of GPK originals from 1985, specifically the glossy card series, can rake in thousands of dollars. Meanwhile, since the birth of Bitcoin, blockchain technology has transformed not only finance, but other industries like art and collectibles. Last year, Topps joined forces with the wax.io (Wax blockchain) team and released the first iterations of digital GPK collectibles.

“Blockchain technology allows collectors to enter a marketplace where they can purchase digital Garbage Pail Kids trading cards,†the Topps website called topps.wdny.io notes. “[Collectors can] propose and execute trades, showcase their inventory on social media, and search wishlists of other traders.â€
