GeePeeKay and hobbyDB Go Solid Gold In “Art by John Pound Collection” Finale

Adam Bomb

Congratulations for making it to the sixth and final week of the “Art by John Pound” Sticker Card Collection presented by GeePeeKay and Powered by hobbyDB.

Last week you became a contributor and earned the stylish Silver Border Adam Bomb. To complete the set, we’re asking you to reach gold level status by helping us out with our images.

Literally.

This week’s task is to add five images to the GeePeeKay (perfect if you only collect GPK items) or hobbyDB database (awesome if you collect all sorts of things). You’ll have to work quickly, however. The final card comes with a rarity of just 50 produced.

Adam BombWhat images to add

The GeePeeKay and hobbyDB databases are already great resources for all-things related to Garbage Pail Kids sticker cards.

In fact, we’ve recently begun adding parallel color border sets to the database. Check out the Brand New Series 1 parallel sets here, including black, green and silver border variants.

An excellent way to contribute is by adding the back images to cards already existing in the database. In many cases, you’ll find we have the front image of a card, but can use a little hand in adding the back images. See instructions below for further details.

Does your fandom extend outside of Garbage Pail Kids? The hobbyDB catalog is home to  thousands of items from your favorite brands, franchises and characters. That means your five images don’t need to be reserved to Garbage Pail Kids.

How to add an image

Adam Bomb

Simply click “Add Photos” to add images to each item.

Now that you’ve been approved as a contributor, the fun begins.

To add an image, first locate and click on the item within the hobbyDB database.

Underneath each item image you’ll find a pair of options to view and add photos. First click “View X Photos” to see which images for that item are currently in the hobbyDB system.

When you have a unique photo to add, simply click the Add Photos button. Please do not use images with watermarks.

From here you can choose the “Upload Photo” button to add an image, or simply drag an image — or multiple images — from your desktop directly onto any part of the page.

Made a mistake and added an image you decided you didn’t want? Click the red X in the upper right corner of the image to delete.

Click “Finish & View Item.”

Voilà.

When you’ve added five images, (and completed all other five tasks) you’ll be eligible to purchase the sixth and final card.

The Card

Adam BombAdam BombThis week’s card is a regal Adam Bomb Gold Border Sticker Card that arrives with a rarity of just 50 produced.

This is the sixth and final color variant in the set, following the Classic White, Bruised (Dark Blue) and Bloody Nose Red, as well as Phlegm and Silver border cards.

To earn the unique piece of Garbage Pail Kids nostalgia, we’re asking for your help in building a bigger and better database – in the form of fun weekly tasks to unlock the chance to purchase the officially-licensed version of Adam Bomb for $14.99.

The collection is part of a collaboration between GeePeeKay and hobbyDB to celebrate the creation of our Garbage Pail Kids archive and marketplace.

How everything works

The six-card set will be available by unlocking levels pertaining to the Garbage Pail Kids database. 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. 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.

About the Archive

Our official Garbage Pail Kids archive is growing by the day. In addition to all base sets, we’re cataloging every variation of Garbage Pail Kids sticker cards, including different colored borders and languages. We believe this will allow all levels of GPK enthusiasts to accurately sync their collections.

Those variations will include all legitimate card changes — such as the controversial “Schizo Fran – Fran Fran” Original Series 2 card — and all error cards, think Original Series 9 #355b Semi Colin (no number), for example.

But the catalog goes further than just the sticker cards. Among the many items you’ll find in the archive are Final Artwork renderings of Adam Bomb and an assortment of other Garbage Pail Kids characters before they were immortalized in card form. The prints stand 5 x 7 feet and were created by original artists such as John Pound and David Gross using acrylic and airbrushed paint.

GeePeeKay and hobbyDB Partnering For Garbage Pail Kids Archive

Like some of the greatest tandems in Garbage Pail Kids history — such as Half-Nelson, Split-Kit or Crossover Kent — GeePeeKay has teamed with the collectibles ecosystem hobbyDB to revolutionize the GPK experience.

The new partnership will feature a complete archive of every Garbage Pail Kids sticker card and all merchandise created, centered around a GPK-specific marketplace.

GeePeeKay

Think of it as a community home for all things related to Adam Bomb and his thousands of creepy cohorts.

To celebrate the union, GeePeeKay and hobbyDB have teamed together to offer a new version of the Garbage Pail Kids’ mascot in the form of an officially-licensed, six-card set exclusive to GeePeeKay.

The Archive

What separates the GeePeeKay library powered by hobbyDB from other archives is our attention to the finest of details. In addition to all base sets, we’re cataloging every variation of Garbage Pail Kids sticker cards, including different colored borders and languages. We believe this will allow all levels of GPK enthusiasts to accurately sync their collections.

Among those variations, we’re documenting all legitimate card changes – think of the infamous “Schizo Fran – Fran Fran” controversy from Original Series 2, for example.

The catalog will also be home to all known and industry-recognized errors. That means you’ll find even the rarest of cards, such as the Series 9 #355b Semi Colin (No Number).

GeePeeKayWhile the library is still a work in progress, it’s expanding everyday courtesy of Matt from GeePeeKay, Chris from hobbyDB and Andy Goodman.  Thanks also to Ira Friedman and Alfred Tam from Topps, both for advice, allowing us to create the Limited Edition cards and lots of images (many still to be uploaded), to noted GPK enthusiast Adam Goldberg, of ABC’s “The Goldbergs” who has started adding some of his amazing collection and Mike Horn for introductions. 

GeePeeKay Marketplace

While the rare cards might be difficult to find, it’s never been easier to locate your favorite characters, series and collections, as well as those elusive individual cards needed to complete your set. That’s thanks to a GeePeeKay Marketplace powered by hobbyDB, where buying and selling are made easy with just a few clicks of a button on a secure system.

Collection Management

Whether you own a rare Semi Colin or are just a casual collector, you’re going to want to show-off your collection. Our new management tools allow you to stylize your profile to proudly display that collection you’ve tirelessly worked to build.

Got an eye on a special card? Try our Wishlist feature to keep track of them. And be sure to follow the valuation of your cards as we add them to the library.

Price Guide

You’re going to want to know how much all your hard work is worth. Now you can with our Price Guide tools. Our system pulls prices from curators, marketplaces and eBay to assign an item’s value. Thanks to a team of volunteers, we’re working to assign values to all items before the end of the year.
