New Hampshire Primary spawns new batch of Garbage Pail Kids

Screen Shot 2016-02-09 at 11.32.54 AMOn the heels of a re-release of the politicians cards in this year’s Garbage Pail Kids set for the Iowa Primary, Topps has created a set of new GPK cards only available for a limited time coinciding with the New Hampshire Primary.

Why? People love their politicians — or ripping on them.

A new batch of nine pairs of card-size stickers, as well as a full set, are initially available for 24 hours only via Topps.com.  Who’s in it? Keep reading …

Screen Shot 2016-02-09 at 11.32.40 AMThe standard-sized set of all candidates is $49.99, while pairs of individual stickers for each person are $9.99 if purchased separately.

The candidates being subjected to the GPK world are Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

Here’s a rundown of the checklist …

1a DONALD DUMPTY 1b HUMPTY TRUMPTY
2a “TEXAN” TED 2b CANADIAN CRUZ
3a MISSPENT MARCO 3b REPO’ED RUBIO
4a DEAD JED 4b BEAT BUSH

6a CRASS CHRIS 6b CRUDE CHRISTIE
7a JUMPED-SHIP JOHN 7b CASH KASICH

    Did anybody ever hear how many Iowa Caucus GPKs were printed? I know there were printed to order.

    It was in the ballpark of 1,000 to 1,200 on each. Trump was highest but not by much.
