2017 Series 1 GPK Adam-Geddon Collector & Hobby Odds

There’re out! Collectors have begun to see the next retail series, 2017 Series 1 Garbage Pail Kids Adam-Geddon, in stores and hobby shops. Thanks to collector Ke We we have the picture below of the Collector pack odds. Thanks also to collector Stephen Hiteshew for the Hobby pack odds.

Many interesting tidbits by looking at the Collector pack odds. Spit parallels are twice as easy to pull in Collector packs, due to them not appearing in Hobby packs this time. Bloody Nose are the same rate, while Gold parallels are slightly easier. However, major hits are extremely tough compared to previous releases. Plates are almost 5x tougher to pull, Dual artist sketches 2x tougher to pull, Shaped sketches are a little tougher, while patches are similar. This leads me to believe a couple of things. 1) There are many less sketches inserted this time around compared to Prime Slime, which we saw in what was issues to artists to complete. 2) Plates have been moved to a different pack type almost completely. 3) Print run of at least collector boxes look to be similar to previous release.

A couple of other notes. There are 20 patch cards this time, 10a/b all /50. That means the same number of patches exist, just more to put a set together. Also Topps decided to cut the set to 180 cards. Not sure why the cut, but this leads me to believe total production will be down by 20% this time around. I will have a breakdown of production numbers in the coming days once I can run the numbers.

When looking at the pack odds for Hobby packs, what was described in the sell sheets is indeed true. Hobby packs are basically the same as Retail packs. All the odds are the same for each pack type, except for printing plates, which are very close. Hobby packs might be the worst buy this time since you don’t get any extra bonus or parallel cards. Very disappointing to see Topps take this route with Hobby boxes. Take note of the odds when making your purchase decisions.
