Garbage Pail Kids were originally made as a spoof the Cabbage Patch Kids phenomenon. Topps released the first series in 1985 and they were an instant hit. The sticker cards feature a grotesque child usually doing something gross. Edgy at the time, Garbage Pail Kids found themselves banned from many schools. Lots of kids also snuck their collections into their houses, worried their parents might catch them.

The complete set Garbage Pail Kids Series 1 consists of 88 stickers: 44 A cards and 44 B cards. This includes variation backs for cards 5, 8 and 29. Matching A and B cards have the same images but different numbering. Series 1 also features glossy and matte finishes, depending on the printing. Matte-finish cards are more rare and carry a premium.

Series 1 introduced several iconic Garbage Pail Kids characters including Adam Bomb, Nasty Nick and New Wave Dave. The initial run lasted 15 sets plus a movie and a variety of other novelty items.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
