With just one week to go before the release date of 2019 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids We Hate the 90’s, today Topps released the official checklist. There have been a few changes compared to the sell sheet. The base set contains 220 cards, (110 with a/b versions). This matches the previous high of some earlier sets like the 30th anniversary set.. The subset format is of course back. In total there are 9 subsets in the base set. The base subsets are:
- 90’s Cartoons & Comics (20 cards/10 w/ a/b versions)
- 90’s Fads (20 cards/10 w/ a/b versions)
- 90’s Fashion (18 cards/9 w/ a/b versions)
- 90’s Films (40 cards/20 w/ a/b versions)
- 90’s Music & Celebrities (16 cards/8 w/ a/b versions)
- 90’s Politics & News (18 cards/9 w/ a/b versions)
- 90’s Toys (36 cards/18 w/ a/b versions)
- 90’s TV (40 cards/20 w/ a/b versions)
- 90’s Video Games (12 cards/6 w/ a/b versions)
The rest of the checklist varies slightly from the sell sheet. The one per box Collector only “bonus” 90’s Wax Pack Parodies, will once again have 10 cards in the set. Blasters will once again feature Bathroom Buddies. However, unlike the last set there are 8 cards this time. The 20 card Classic 90’s insert set can be found in Hobby/Retail display boxes. The Classic set was originally advertised as 10 cards, and according to Topps will appear in Hobby/Retail Display boxes. Patch cards return to Collector boxes. The set will once again have the same 20 cards that are found in the Classic 90’s set. Finally, the Wacky Pails 20 card insert will be found in Jumbo Fat Retail packs.
Topps also has revealed the artists for the set. This time nine artists completed finals for the set; Brent Engstrom, David Gross, Joe Simko, JungHwa Im, Layron DeJarnette, Maran Kim, Neil Camera, Fred Wheaton, and Smokin Joe McWilliams. Topps also revealed the sketch artist list. A total of 56 artists completed sketches for the set. The complete checklist for 2019S1 GPK We Hate the 90’s can be found here in PDF version.
Today Topps released the official checklist for 2018 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Oh the Horror-ible. As was stated in the sell sheets, the base set will contain 200 cards, (100 with a/b versions). This is higher than the past couple of GPK retails sets. The subset format returns once again. In total there are 8 subsets in the base set. The base Subsets are:
- 80’s Horror Sticker (30 cards/15 a/b)
- 80’s Sci-Fi Sticker (20 cards/10 a/b)
- Modern Horror Sticker (30 cards/15 a/b)

The rest of the checklist is pretty much as expected. Bathroom Buddies, which will appear in both types of blaster boxes has 6 cards on the checklist. The Jumbo Bonus Classic Monster stickers is 20 cards again. While the “bonus” Horror Film Poster Parodies cards found one per Collector box, once again is at 10 in the set. The patch cards found in Collector boxes remains at 20 cards, and just like We Hate the 80’s appears to use the same cards as the Classic 80’s sticker Jumbo Insert Set. The Trick or Treats insert set originally set for Gravity Feed boxes also appears on the checklist. This 10 card set might be appearing in regular retail boxes. For the first time Topps has listed both the final card artists and sketch artists on the checklist. Eight artists completed finals for the set; Brent Engstrom, David Gross, Joe Simko, JungHwa Im, Layron DeJarnette, Maran Kim, Neil Camera, and Smokin Joe McWilliams.

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.
