Lightning Strikes Twice, Collector Pulls First Red Border Comic Cards

Do you believe in miracles? Well Garbage Pail Kids collector DJ Spencer does after tonight. DJ posted to Facebook tonight his haul after visiting his local comic store. He bought all the Deluxe versions of the last two IDW GPK comics that store had in stock.

After opening them to his shock he pulled the first known Red Border version of the Over Killian card. Like the yellow version the card is not numbered on the back. Its believed 10 copies of the card exists.

IDW Rep Reveals Odds for Comic Cards

With the release of the 4th one shot IDW GPK Comic, “Gross Encounters of the Turd Kind”, IDW has continued the tradition of inserting promo cards into the Deluxe version of the comic. This time around collectors noticed the yellow border of the promo card was not numbered /100 like the two previous releases. So, GPK collector Dustin Wells decided to call IDW to find out more details.

Dustin was able to find out a lot of information on the history of the comic cards. Dustin asked the IDW sales specifically about the first comic card, Comic-Con Ron. The rep told Dustin that there were four colored borders released; white, black, yellow, and red. Reds were numbered to 10, Yellows to 100, Blacks were 1/5 the production run of whites, and White borders made up the remaining cards.

Here’s the problem with some of the information the rep shared. To date only one red border is known to have been pulled, it also has a lone 1 on the back of the card. The assumption is there are still 9 remaining copies out there numbered, 2, 3, 4, etc. On the yellow borders to date none are known to exist. A few collectors recently repeated third hand knowledge that Topps was late in providing IDW with the yellow border version of Comic-Con Ron, therefore those were not inserted into the first GPK Comic. Dustin has another call into the rep to find out and clarify more information about the cards.

So here is what we know now based on what cards have surfaced, info from the IDW sales rep, and other collector information.

Comic #1 – Puketucular (Comic-Con Ron Promo card)

White Border – Inserted at the most common rate.
Black Border – Inserted at 1/5 the rate of the white border.
Yellow Border – Was not inserted into comics. Has never surfaced.
Red Border – 10 copies exist according to IDW rep. Only one has surfaced numbered “1” on the back.
