- RELEASE DATE: January 22, 2019
- ON SALE WINDOW: 14 days (1/22/19 - 02/05/19) *
- COMPLETE SET: Coloring Book and three 'A is for Adam' trading cards (Green, Pink, Gold)
- PRICE: The book and one (random border-color) card were sold for $9.99 each
- INFORMATION: The GPK Coloring Book contains 26 pages, each with a line-drawing of a popular character. There is one page per letter, and each character chosen shares a name with the corresponding letter of the alphabet ('K is for KIM Kong', etc.). All artwork for the book was done by veteran artist Neil Camera
Included with the book was one of three different-colored Adam Bomb cards. The green, pink, and gold cards seem to have been inserted randomly, with similar odds (1:333)
- PRINT RUN: According to information released on the Topps blog, the release sold a total of 1000 BOOKS
- CONTROVERSY: Contrary to the listing, this book was NOT available for 14 days. Immediately after it went on sale people were having difficulty not only locating the book on the newly-designed website, but also seeing a button allowing them to add it to their cart. In reality the book sold out in a matter of days, yet the countdown clock kept ticking on the website until February 5th when Topps officially marked it as 'Sold Out'
In addition to the problems surrounding the sale of the book, there were also some collectors who received the wrong card when the book was finally delivered. A number of people posted pictures of their book, but instead of one of the three possible 'A is for Adam' cards, they apparently received a Marie Baguette card - which was an online exclusive from 2015, and available only with the purchase of a 30th Anniversary Binder!?!
