GeePeeKay and hobbyDB are pairing up, like Split Kit and Mixed-Up Mitch, to offer a unique piece of Garbage Pail Kids nostalgia.
Powered by collectors throughout the world, collectible ecosystem hobbyDB has partnered with GeePeeKay to create a complete Garbage Pail Kids archive! Centered around a detailed database of trading cards and merchandise, the archive aspires to be the most complete record of all GPK memorabilia
We’re working with GeePeeKay’s Matt Oldweiler and avid collector Andy Goodman, as well as other GPK specialists to create a database that includes every Garbage Pail Kids trading card created by Topps. Among the archive’s features are card values, collection management/wish list features, and a marketplace!
To celebrate the new archive, we’re thrilled to offer an opportunity to own a piece of Garbage Pail Kids history, while in turn asking for your expertise to help us to make an already extensive archive even bigger and better.
Introducing the Adam Bomb Limited Edition “Art by John Pound” Sticker card. The officially licensed collection comes in six variants, ranging in rarity from 1,000 to 50 produced.
The back of the cards, with the exception of the white bordered cards, are individually numbered. The reverse side also details the history of the idea sketches that led to Adam Bomb becoming the face of Garbage Pail Kids.
HOW TO GET YOUR HANDS ON THEM
We’re gamifying the Garbage Pail Kids experience. To craft the most complete Garbage Pail Kids’ archive, we’re asking for your help and feedback about our features. In short, we’re going to ask you to be more of a Handy Andy than a Lazy Louie in order to obtain this exclusive set.
The six cards will be available by unlocking levels pertaining to the Garbage Pail Kids database. Each Wednesday we’ll offer an opportunity to buy the next card in the series, along with another task to obtain it. As the challenges rise, so, too, does the rarity of the cards.
Cards are limited to one per user and sold via the GeePeeKay and hobbyDB marketplaces. Please note to be fair to all collectors we will refund purchases of multiple cards. Cards will ship upon completion of each task.
Late to the game? Do not fear. You can make up weekly tasks provided cards remain.
