    About time! [​IMG] I almost got expelled from grade school because of those cards. Will be nice to be able to collect them with no one punishing me for it [​IMG][​IMG]

    I collected a bunch of them (including 1st series) when I was a kid. I wonder how much they're worth now?

    I remember collecting them myself. A friend of mine even gave me a bunch of his collection to me for my birthday once, which ruled. Wish I still had them all.

    I think I still have some somewhere. If they are of any value I'll go find them. Haven't got a clue where they are though.

    Maybe they will bring back the Wacky Packs too. I could go for a nice cold Dr. pooper right now.[​IMG]

    whoa!! I totally had those growing up!! They were so awesome. The kid who lived next door to me and myself were really into them. I remember my mom and his mom going out on the weekends and looking for different series for both of us. hahaha. It was insane. I had a whole baseball album full of 'em... we moved in 1987 and things got lost in the shuffle. I wish I knew what happened to them.

    Does anyone have any idea what the older series might be worth today? I wanna say they went up to 5th series? I think that's as far as I got before I stopped.

    I recently sold my collection of garbage pail kids on eBay, I had an entire sets of the first 7 series plus tons of extra cards. Made a decent amount of money off the sale as well.

    I still have all mine. All cards in series 1-15 including alternate backs and the large cards. I guess I was lucky in that my dad got into the cards too. After the first couple sets he would buy a box in each new series and we would have fun sorting the cards together.

    Garbage Pail Kids, the perfect family bonding activity.[​IMG] :b [​IMG]

    Garbage Pail Kids are more common and in less demand, but if you have any from the first few series they are worth more. Wacky Packages have become very collectible, especially over the last 5-6 years. Some of them are pretty valuable, depending on their condition, especially the first few series. The fifth through ninth series are the most common (that's when they were the most popular and printed the most) but they all still sell well on ebay. The original artwork (one-of-a-kind pieces) sell for thousands of dollars--lots of fanatical collectors out there.
