Relisting because buyer never paid.
Hello and thank you for checking out my extremely unique GPK Garbage Pail Kids Original Series 1-15 Master Set Collection w/ Extras. This has been an extremely fun hobby for me since my childhood and the time has come to decide which hobbies to continue with and which one's to part ways with. This one was a hard decision for me but part of the fun of collecting cards & stickers is actually finding & collecting the cards over time. I have had this set together now for many years and it is 100% complete which does not provide me the satisfaction of the hunt anymore which is the only reason why its time.
Now that being said, I have always kept an eye out for enhancement card opportunities because if you are familiar with GPK cards, especially the old original series cards, there was just a ridiculous amount of errors and bad cutting of the card sheets into individual cards. Finding a perfectly centered gem without dings, bubble gum residue and/or writing on the cards (mostly checklists) is and will always be a difficult task but this set will give you a significant head start. No cards in this listing have writing or damage to disclose upfront. This is a collector set and many of the cards are probably worth sending out for official grading. Because there is so much variability to cards and each persons opinion of a cards grading, please look at the pictures and ask any questions or request any specific pictures you would like. I am not a professional grader but I am going to say, in my opinion, that this set is 99% Near Mint condition with sharp corners and a very small amount of cards that may be considered Light Play. Here is the rundown on what is included in this GPK Original Series Master Set listing:
- Series 1 Glossy (88) card complete variation set
- Series 1 Matte (88) card complete variation set
- Series 1 UK (82) card complete set (Played to NM)

Now you may be saying to yourself, a couple of those sets seem to have an extra card or two above the normal variation set checklists and you would be correct. The reason being here is that there are certain error cards that I believe to be a mandatory part of a complete variation set. Picture #8 in the listing showcases a couple of those cards in addition to what I consider to be the primary error cards and some of the additional error cards included. The big money error cards include:
- 97a Punchy PERRY die cut error
- 153b DUNCAN Pumpkin pink swirl error
- 174b Repaired REX green 10 error
- 260b Blasted BILLY II purple header error/variation
- 261b BOBBI Booger purple header error/variation
- 289b ALEXANDER The Grate centered card number error
- 355b Semi COLON no card number error
- 384b Hot TODDY white box error
- 385a PHIL Er' Up die cut error
- 385b Chuckin CHARLIE die cut error
- 458a Dental Hy GENE green bar error
- 458b Rudy Canal green bar error
Additionally, as shown in Picture #8, there are (4) cards that are/were back in the day banned and removed from further print run manufacturing. All (4) of these banned cards are included as well and are:
- 125b Woody ALAN
- 149a REESE Pieces
- 158b CRYSTAL Gale
- 164b SALVATORE Dolly
Shinzo FRAN is included as well but is a variation card to me and not an error or banned card. I only mention because some collectors like to call it out.
Furthermore, many of the spare or replaced cards over the years are also included as I kept upgrading the centering quality of cards. So there are a good amount of extra duplicate cards including some extra Tessie back cards from the 2nd Series which carry a higher price point. Just not interested in breaking it all up or pulling out a few singles to make a couple extra bucks.
You will see in Pictures 3-6, I have also made my own custom set cover pages which also includes a set checklist on the back side in the same format as a regular GPK checklist card. The cover pages include cool facts and details about the various sets as they were introduced over the years. If anyone would like to purchase my cover pages seperately, please just shoot me an email.
Condition is listed as Used because they are not in orginal packaging. RETURNS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED for any reason so please ask whatever questions you need in order for you to feel comfortable with your purchase. There are too many rare cards in high quality condition to have the collection sent back after a buyer picks out the rare money cards and replaces them with lower quality substitutes. I am not in a rush to sell this set and hope that is finds its way to the right person who will enjoy these cards as I have collecting and sharing memories with friends and family.
Shipped with USPS First Class Package including tracking, delivery signature and insurance. All cards will be shipped in their Ultra Pro pages with the (2) 4 inch zipper binders included to ensure the cards are protected properly and arrive in the same high quality condition.
PayPal only please. If you offer and do not pay within 2 days from the sale listing end date, I will file a complaint with and relist the collection again. I will be listing all of my other GPK sets over the coming weeks as well (all or nothing in my book) which includes many high value sets from Flashback, Chrome, Presidential Series, On Demand sets and more. So please check back on the weekends or let me know if you are looking for a particular set which I may have. I will generally list new sets and have them end on the weekends so I have some time to organize it all and get it ready to ship out quickly for you.
Thanks again for taking a look and please let me know if you have any questions. Good Luck to all the buyers!
