Garbage Pail Kids Original Series 1 Set RARE Glossy all PSA 8/9
Garbage Pail Kids Original Series 1 Complete Set All PSA 8/9!!!! ALL ARE THE RARE GLOSSY VERSION!!! Complete variation set of 88 original first series. All 88 are PSA 8 or PSA 9!!! 36 are graded at PSA 9!! Look at the pics, this is a must have! As you will see in the pictures, four of them do not specifically say "Glossy" on the PSA description. These four were graded by PSA prior to when they started making the distinction. I have included front and back of the four so you can be assured, they are definitely the rare glossy version. I also included a side by side comparison of a glossy back and a matte back. The glossy back has sharper print and more vivid colors, as you'll see in the bottom example. The matte version on the top is more grainy, less vivid, and kind of looks like the colors are more soaked into the card. The matte version doesn't show as well. Garbage Pail Kids Original Series 1 cards are especially hard to find. Topps made these cards not thinking they'd become as popular as they did. The first series run was very short and they ended up having to use leftover card stock to finish the run. Whether that card stock was the matte version or the glossy, we don't know definitively. But what we do know is that the Glossy version is harder to find. On another note, the original first series cards are notoriously off-centered.
These cards weren't considered collectible when they first came out, so the kids that did get hold of the original first series cards typically took the sticker off and stuck them on their lockers, trapper keepers, and textbook covers. For those that survived, a good percentage of them had a bubble gum stain on the back. Typically the last card in each five card pack. So, when you add all of this together, finding a Glossy version original first series with nice centering and no gum stain on the back is truly rare. THAT'S WHAT MAKES THIS SET EXTREMELY SPECIAL!
