Who doesn’t love a nostalgic walk down memory lane every once in a while? Especially when it involves such notorious childhood relics as the Garbage Pail Kids trading cards. A product of the 80’s the trading cards were originally a cheeky response to the Cabbage Patch Kids that were wildly famous at the same time. The cards featured a gross, odd, or otherwise creepy character that came outfitted with a perfectly punny name. Bony Tony, Adam Bomb, JunkFood John, Spacey Stacey–these cards were so cool.
Anyone who remembers these gems, and certainly anyone who collected the originals, will be delighted to see what a very clever group of creators from St. Louis, Missouri have made. Their new set of cards feature some of those slimy characters from the original series and revists them 30 years later, just to see what they’ve been up to since 1985.
