Garbage Pail Kids
Do you guys remember these wacky trading cards?
I sure do. I never had any as a kid but then we saw them at the store one day and my 8year old boy thought they were awesome, so we started collecting
them for fun. Here's my boys stack of cards.
The trading cards started being sold in 1985. They were like a spoof of Cabbage Patch Kids dolls. The pictures on these cards are pretty out there.
Some show ill fates, while others can just be plain gross, then there are some that are silly.
I read some info here ~~>>en.wikipedia.org...
There's not much more info out there than that really. I did just google search so I could be wrong.
They even did a movie about the GPK in 1987. If you haven't seen it and you are really bored, then I would recommend watching it. Me and my boy
watched it not too long ago actually. It's a classic late '80's film. Here's the movie poster ~~>>
and a picture from a
scene in the movie
Topps is the company that produces GPK and they have been releasing new sets and flashback sets. They began doing so in 2003. I got my info from a
site that sells the cards and I wasn't sure if I am allowed to link a website that sells things.
They have a new chrome series which aren't stickers and look like this...
It's pretty neat.
and on the back of this card is this statement
On another card the back of it looks like this
I find this to be so fun and interesting! Now some
cards have a picture on the back of them and it's like a puzzle you put together for a new card. This takes nine cards to complete a puzzle.. We
don't have a full complete puzzle yet.
These are called minikins.
They are kinda squishy and we only have two.
I have my own character of a GPK. Hehe
aww I'm so adorable
There ya have it. Garbage Pail Kids are fun and have been around for almost 30 years!! That's really cool to me. I find them to be funny and
entertaining. I hope you do as well. I don't want to offend anyone with the grossness of some of them.
Do you have a Garbage Pail Kid with your name? If ya do and want to post, I sure think it would be kinda fun
If not enjoy this thread and have a wonderful day.
Peace and love to you all ~>>
