Does anyone remember...The Garbage Pail kids?

This weekend I bought Garbage Pail Kids trading cards for my son. I remember collecting these trading cards/stickers by Topps. They were fun to collect. I tried to get all of them to make the puzzle in the back. He seems to like them too. I got him into 80's stuff... yeah. The new Garbage Pail Kids are great some cards have the "Flashback" from the 80's picture and in the back of the card it has "Where are they now?" showing the same Garbage Pail Kid all Grown up. Its a cool new series. The package also came with a poster.

I had a bunch of these way back in grade school and we would trade them in school and make fun of eachother with the names....going to a catholic school for 4 years though with the nuns....let's just say, they didn't share our sense of humor with these cards.

I loved these as a kid too...thanks for the pics Pyro. Now...the old me would instantly go on line and try to buy these on ebay....must resist....no room....no money....arrrghhhhh!

Nice memories...back when collecting cards and trading them with friends was a fun hobby...versus now, buying them in bulk and not opening them, hoping they'll raise in value so you can re-sell them, except, nope, you can't bring yourself to re-sell, so, they sit in your closet/attic/basement collecting dust......shame!

Pop trivia; the guy that invented Garbage Pail Kids was the guy who wrote the Pulitzer-Prize winning comic-book 'Maus' - Art Spiegelman.

I don't remember buying the wacky packs so much back then. But I know alot of them come standard now in the newer packs of Garbage Pail Kids they sell now. I've got some of them.

I still have all of mine too!!! They're perfectly preserved in a nice binder!!! Can you say OCD? Lol [Smile] !

I can still remember the gum that used to accompany the cards in those wack packs...the flavor would last about 5 seconds but what a great 5 seconds it was as you chewed it's powdery, sugary sweetness whilst flipping through your new cards!!!

Good times...

The disappointment when you realised you had them all. Damn, that five second sugary gum chew followed by the need to spit it out because it was harder than regular gum once it had been chewed a few times.

Yeah, as you can see by the pics..I keep mine in the binder at all times too. Unfortunately alot of them are not quite in as good of condition as I would like:(..Yeah, OCD here too..lol

I've actually purchased more to add to my collection from a swap meet since posting those pics..so my collection is getting ridiculously large [Cool]
