2018 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids We Hate the 80’s Explained

It seems like only yesterday when the last retail set of 2017 was released. 2017S2 Battle of the Bands was a hit with collectors. A number of cards were very sought after as collectors focused on collecting their favorite bands. Its time for 2018 to get started with another complete shift in theme material. 2018 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids We Hate the 80’s is trying to hit collectors right in their childhood. Many collectors grew up in the 80’s, and this set’s focus is completely for them. While sticking with the same subset formula, Topps made it a bit easier this time around. The 180 cards set is broken down in to 10 equal subsets. Topps remains committed to the same formula they used for a number of years now. The cards continue to lack card back artwork, sticker die-cuts, checklists, and numbering is on the back. I will have articles looking at production numbers in the coming days.
