Topps Digital continues to revolutionize the collector experience with every release they do on WAX Blockchain. In the 2021 Garbage Pail Kids: Food Fight series edition packs, Topps has included code cards that can be redeemed for exclusive GPK WAX Blockchain collectibles.
The official description reads, “The gross, moldy fun is back with 2021 Garbage Pail Kids: Food Fight! Funny to the rotten apple core, this year’s release features all-new art, card backs, packaging, and more!”. For more than 80 years, Topps has been synonymous with trading cards. Fans have enjoyed collecting and trading Topps cards while checking the official price guide for card values. It’s an exciting experience that fans will never forget.
Upon releasing their series 1 GPK packs in May 2020, Topps announced an exclusive partnership with the Worldwide Asset Exchange (WAX). The first series sold out in 28 hours, followed by their GPK Goes Exotic series which sold out in only 1 hour. Leading to 2021’s release, Topps has revolutionized their collectibles by implementing the best of both worlds between physical and digital trading cards in the upcoming set.
On February 24, 2021, Topps is releasing physical packs in Walmart and Target in synchrony with a digital version of exclusive “Food Fight” art on the WAX Blockchain. Physical card collectors may also receive an exclusive redemption code card in the physical packs that will award exclusive digital collectibles on the WAX Blockchain. While further Digital packs for the exclusive “b” character names can be purchased directly on WAX during Topps Digital’s WinterCon 2021 beginning on February 25th go.wax.io/Food-Fight.
While the core value of the digital trading cards is in the artwork and data, the digital blockchain cards are dynamic. Fans can buy, sell and store their collections on the Topps platform, toppsgpk.io. Each card is a one-of-a-kind digital asset that uses the WAX blockchain to authenticate the NFT and its content. Every Topps card will retain a unique ID that can be tied back to the WAX blockchain, proving the authenticity of every asset. As more fan experiences are unveiled and digital Topps card owners participate, their unique digital cards can honor those events and people.
