    Hey guys,

    Due to some intellectual property issues, we will no longer be able to produce GPKUG Fan Sets.

    The Fan Sets began in 2011 when I wanted to produce a set of cards for myself in Persian-Farsi, a language I learned while in the military. I never thought anyone else would be interested in the cards but to my surprise, people loved them. We subsequently made 5 more fan sets and everyone seemed to really enjoy them.

    We never set out to make money. We simply wanted to produce a cool set of cards that people would like. We went spent a lot of time (and money) making the fan sets.

    All in all it was a good run but unfortunately it has come to an end.

    I want to thank Rusvan, -TCT, tinyTIMMAH, Cory, and all the GPKUG members who supported us over the last 5 years.

    No more fan sets will be sold. All unpaid invoices have been cancelled.

    Thanks guys.

    Jimbo

            I only ever ordered two of fanset 3 and thought they were great. Was contemplating buying a couple each of FS4 and 5 a few days ago. I guess that won't be happening now. Anyhow, thanks to all you guys who were able to make them.

              Well that's a damn shame. I loved all of the sets that I got, they are very well done and I really liked the effort and love you all put into them. Much better than the paper thin crap being peddled on the corporate site. I'd love to see another set...don't call it a fan set and maybe get the artists here to draw some edgy gross art just for this. We could all pay up front for the sets to cover their costs etc.

              Maybe that's against "the rules" too....but I can dream.

              Thanks again for all of the sets that I managed to get!

                Thanks you Jimbo, Rusvan, -TCT, tinyTIMMAH and Cory for producing 6 amazing Fansets. These sets have helped to sustain our interest in GPK during this period of Topps creative decline

                    I'm honestly surprised it took Topps this long to finally drop the hammer on these fan sets.

                      I guess it was inevitable, but that doesn't make it less sad... Just got my FS6 sets (takes a while to cross the Atlantic and find their way to Amsterdam and I'm loving them. How wonderful would it be if Topps would put the same amount of effort, creativity and dedication in their (money grabbing) sets as the guys who made the Fan Sets put in those 6 sets!

                        Thanks to Jimbo, Rusvan, TCT and TinyTIMMAH for creating sets for the fans by the fans. I don't want to take any credit because I really didn't have anything to do with getting the sets made outside of supporting them with the UG brand. Those guys did all of the hard work. It was a great run and I'm also surprised it lasted so long.

                          ahhh sorry to hear about this, there's nothing like a dedicated team of true fans producing a beautiful, limited product for other true fans. In the short time I've been a member here, I can tell it is run by real enthusiasts- thanks so much for your hard work!

                            Sorry to hear but it was a good run. They've also started shutting down artists on the FB sites.
