If anyone is interested; Amazon has listed an upcoming GPK 16-month calendar available in August. Like the Abrams books (and WP calendar), it comes with 4 bonus stickers. Great pre-order price. Hopefully they come out with the GPK OS6-OS10 Abrams book at some point.

Yeah, it may have been too late for 2013; I think it might be based on the BNS1 sales, and since those sold so late in 2012, who knows if they had the numbers in to roll out this calendar. I would imagine the bonus cards will be different; the WP book and WP calendar had different bonus cards, hopefully this one will too. 16-month calendars are a bit strange, a jump start on the new year; they became popular a few years ago... but the downside, is USUALLY they have the 4 months leading up the the new year on the same page, so Sept-Dec might be squeezed under one picture -- I've seen this on other calendars before. But, still an interesting product, and I dig Abrams items.

Just got this from amazon. Looks like it will be shipped out a few weeks earlier than thought:
We have received new release date information related to the order you placed on December 29, 2012 (Order#). The item(s) listed below will actually ship sooner than we originally expected based on the new release date:
The Topps Company "Garbage Pail Kids 2014 Wall Calendar" Previous estimated arrival date: August 20, 2013 New estimated arrival date: August 08, 2013
I'm going to buy a couple of these. One to use and one to add to my collection. I wonder what the images for each month will be like. Maybe the GPK will relate to the month, like Chris Mess for Dec, Marc Spark for July, etc.
So what lost cards could they be? I think most got published in the FB releases and I think all OS16 unpublished are accounted for after the book right?
I reckon they could be any of these ->
Love this one.
It's a long wait till these come out. I hope more calendars like this get released and that we may see the lost set, complete one day. Perhaps for the next anniversary date. Crap giving them ideas again.
Stinger: I listed stuff for sale on the Garbage Pail Kids Facebook page if anyone is interested. Sketches, plates, pencil art, negatives, proofs. Have some Wacky Packages sketches for sale as well.

Steve: There's been a mass exodus from the hobby over the past couple years and for many reasons. The biggest is the failing GPK brand. Mix in a bunch of scammers, a bunch of buttheads (and Beavis'), and 10 million chase cards to complete a set and you have
