Topps today released the checklist for 2017 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Battle of the Bands retail set. Topps has been striving to release checklists earlier, and they came through for the next GPK set. Once again the base set contains 180 cards, (90 a/b versions), this time in 7 different subsets. The Base Subsets are:
- Pop Stickers (42 cards)
- Classic Rock Stickers (40 cards)
- Hard Rock Stickers (18 cards)
- Metal Stickers (20 cards)
- New Wave & Punk Stickers (20 cards)
- Alternative Stickers (20 cards)
- Rap & R&B Stickers (20 cards
The rest of the checklist doesn’t offer any other surprises, and falls in line with the previous series. Once again, there are 6 Gross Bears, and 6 Bathroom Buddies cards. The Album Covers Bonus Insert set has 10 cards. Not to be confused with the Classic Rock subset in the base set, but the Jumbo Bonus Classic Rock Insert Set contains 20 cards. Finally once again there are 20 patch cards found only in Collector boxes. Here is the official checklist in PDF form.
2017 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Adam-Geddon has released to stores as of 1/18, and with it comes the latest checklist from Topps. As with the last few sets, Topps doesn’t included checklists on card backs anymore. However, they have been nice enough to provide collectors with the information. Topps has made some changes to the set configuration compared to previous sets, and even the sell sheets. The base set only contains 180 cards in 9 different subsets. A set size nearly 20% smaller should make it easier for collectors to put together. The Collector “bonus” set, (Best of the 2016 Presidential Election), is 10 cards this year, up from the usual 8. Also the Collector only Patch insert set is now 20 cards, (10a/b) all numbered to /50. Gross Bears, Bathroom Buddies, Classic Adamgeddon retail bonus sets also appears on the checklist. Here is the checklist in PDF format.
In a change from previous releases Topps did not include checklist card backs in the new 2016 GPK Apple Set. However, Topps has released a checklist of cards names that can be found in the set. Click here to see Topps 2016 GPK Apple Pie Checklist.
