Don't laugh, but they may actually be worth something

Re: garbage pail kids

They were featured on VH1's 'I Love the 80's Strikes Back' last night.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: garbage pail kids

Going back much further, I remember collecting Topp's 'Wacky Packs' series of cards. For those of you who are too young to remember them, they were parodies on all different products. For example, they had Freetoes instead of Fritos. The package was recognizable as a fritos bag, but it showed it was filled with toes. Stuff like that. Pretty funny.

Re: garbage pail kids

That is a blast from the past...I had so many of those things. I had this blue GPK binder I kept them in. It may be stuck in with my baseball cards...

Re: garbage pail kids

love them love them....Garbage Pail Kids were the best. I lost my whole collection when I cleaned my room. I wish I knew where they were now.

Re: garbage pail kids

Wacky packs were the best! The absolute best. I saved every nickle and dime to buy a pack.

....showing my age.

Be fast or be last.

I forgot all about those... LOL I was really young (6yo I think) when I got my first pack of those. Talk about flashback..

I had a cigar box full of those things... As I recall mom hated them so there is probably no chance that they are still around somewhere.

Life always looks better through bugs on a face shield.

Re: garbage pail kids

I had a ton of GPK cards, then my parents took a closer look at them and deemed them unfit and made me toss them

Re: garbage pail kids

I had a binder decorated with wacky pack stickers.

I miss childhood, but the 929 is good compensation for being stuck in an adult body.
