    Are these latest cards refreshes of some of the old GPK cards from back in the 80s or is there new artwork in this series?

    I just completed my vintage GPK collection a couple of years ago, but got disappointed by the new cards once they started to refresh the older cards and put out fewer and fewer band new cards.

    Yes, there is new artwork.

    I actually just started collecting the Flashback series 3 a week or so ago. I bought about 20 packs total. Within those packs I had enough variant silver, pink, green, and Adam mania cards to trade for everything I needed to complete Series 3...AS WELL AS enough to trade for a COMPLETE Series 1 and 2. Thank goodness for Garbage Pail Kids Underground

    I have "Up Chuck" and "Sally Suction" posters from Target packs.

    Its actually a mix, there are new cards in each series. The new cards consist of new cards (like the card mocking Lady Gaga), ones that were banned originally in the 80's by TOPPS (the dead Lincoln one comes to mind), where are they now cards which show you what happened to your favorite characters (and on the back it shows the original card).

    Not to mention the random sketch cards that are really hard to get, all of which are completely original and unduplicated artwork (there only exists 1 of each sketch). We were lucky and got a sketch card for FB2 in our Hobby Case we bought.

    I mean there is not going to be any completely new series because part of the appeal is the nostalgia factor

    This is good to know. Now that I know that there is new artwork, I'm more likely to pick these up. Now if only I can find them where I live. I'll probably have to drive up to Raleigh to find them.

    My impression is that they are taking the characters that would have been vintage series #17(?) and putting them into these flashbacks.

    That is part of it, but new ones like the Lady Gaga one are obviously a new thing in the last 2 years. The ANS had more of the characters that would been in the vintage series

    The artist who did a lot of Garbage Pail Kids (John Pound) has the original art for the banned cards for sale, Lincoln for example was omitted from Series 3 and Series 5, so Flashback is getting some REALLY old cards that were never released

    It really is a mix of ones that were denied 20 years ago, reprints, updates (where are they now) and completely new ones. Of course its going to be heavier on the reprints since its a nostalgia based series

    All I know is that I am LOVING them! I never collected any as a kid, though my neighbor did, and I am enjoying collecting them.

    Anyone know if there will be a Series 4?

    I am pretty sure there will be, the cards are selling out all over and TOPPS is having trouble keeping up with orders. FB1 was the test, it passed with flying colors.

    Its hard to say though because TOPPS does kind of like Mattel where a major retailer orders x amount of cards and TOPPS chooses what they get. So if they REALLY like GPK and order a nice amount they could get stuck with Wacky Packages

    But the sales are strong and as long as they have cards to reprint the series should go for at least another 3-7 series.

    Don't know. Haven't read anything. But it's to early to tell. It's all about sales. if it sells well then there will I would guess.

    by then all the previously unrelease would be gone. But that means more room for all new ones. or reprints or both. either way is fine with me but I think I'd prefere all new ones.

    Garbage Pail Kids officially back, Brand New Series 1 coming fall, Series 2 Spring

    After a few series of Flashback it seems Topps has newfound faith in the property

    http://www.beckett.com/news/2012/04/...-cards-of-old/

    Topps is returning this year with a new series of Garbage Pail Kids.

    The last original series came out in 2007, according to Topps Editor Colin Walton. Since then, Topps has produced Garbage Pail Kids Flashbacks, reliving some of the old cards we loved as children.

    The new set is going to be fun and inspired by the cards of old.

    Were trying to keep the art and type of jokes more similar to the original 80s cards, Walton said. The Flashbacks do really well for us. I liked the old feel.

    That is REALLY cool! Glad to hear they are coming out with a new series! I stopped collecting them because I already spend WAY TOO MUCH $$$ on toys and collectibles.

    Yes those are from series 8, we should see them by summer or at the latest fall. They will come up for solicitation shortly I believe

    Awesome!

    I am happy to see they stayed true to the original artwork and didn't try some "reboot" on them!!

    I really wish that these were easier to find here (Ontario, Canada).
    I did manage to pick up some when I was last in the US.

    This is good to know. For a while, I was back into collecting GPK and managed to get most of the old series - except a US version of Series 1. I collected the new series, but it became a lot cheaper to buy an entire set off of eBay than try and collect a whole set.

    Once the flashback series came out, I sorta' drifted away from it, but an all-new series 8 is welcome news.

    I picked up the July 2012 issue of Previews (TMNT on front/DCnU 52 Superman issue #0 Cover) and on page 376 (trading card (orange) section) there is a solicit for "Garabage Pail Kids Series 1 Stickers".

    I'm not going to retype the solicit but they are $2.09 a pack and and will be out in September. The sticker they show is "D. Jay"


    Additional:

    Ooops! I Didn't mean to September.

    They just came out this week, Walmart seems to have gotten them first (we are still waiting on a hobby case order)

    We picked up 10 packs, they are really nice and remind me more of the 80's series then the relaunch in the 2000's

    I want to say I read something saying that's what they was going to do. Make this set more like the 80's.

    Yeah I am sure the success of the Flashback series which celebrated the 80's cards pushed them. I am glad because this series does not seem to have the stupid gimmick stuff that the 2000's series had
