Who wasn't a GPK collector in the 80's ???

Yours truly was a HUGE Garbage Pail Kid collector in the 80s. It was a total mockery of the famous Cabbage Patch Kids toyline which dominated the early 80s - I was so sick of hearing about them. GPKs was sweet revenge w/ a stick of gum in every pack XD !!!


I used to bring these badboys to a catholic school I used to attend. We'd trade the stickers/cards on the playground during recess. But then the teachers took notice of the cards and were appalled by the abnormalities - XD Immediately a notice was sent home to every parent explaining the GPKs were now banned at our school.


I shortly quit collecting them after I got an 8-bit Nintendo. 23 years later - I still have them stashed away in a plastic pail. As you can see - they're still in great condition XD !!!!!
