Fresh off the recent “Legend of the Pink Cherry” exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery, Buff Monster has linked with Sidekick Labs to mint a new offering of collectible “The Melty Misfits” trading cards curated with the artist’s unique work. Buff Monster, who was also a contributor to The Hundreds’ Garbage Pail Kids initiative, offers up a comprehensive homage to the iconic Topps character series through the collection. Each card boasts the art of an original painting that was originally created on a 5×7 using acrylic and airbrush — the same manner in which the original Garbage Pail Kids work was created. Each of the cards are offset printed and feature a kiss-cut, custom made sticker. True to the original mentality of the GPK stock, The Melty Misfits boast puzzles, checklists and reproductions of pencil sketches on the reverse side of the cards. One box set also has the opportunity of possessing a “Golden Ticket” which is good for the redemption of an original Buff Monster piece of art. Priced at $5 USD per pack or $120 USD for a complete box of 24 packs, the Buff Monster The Melty Misfits will be available as of 10 a.m. PST, June 5 through buffmonster.com or themeltymisfits.com.
Buff Monster and HYPEBEAST are also giving away a limited amount of 10 packs to our readers. Check out the HYPEBEAST Facebook for more info on how to win one of the 10 packs!
