It's been awhile since I had anything worthy of posting in a breakdown, but I thought this gem fit the bill.

Went to Target this morning and bought 5 packs of Garbage Pail Kids Flashback 2 cards from a gravity feed. At first I thought it was a misprint, until I turned the card over!



Odds are 1:2636 packs
This is the first printing plate I have ever pulled!

From a retail pack, no less. Congrats!

Shame it wasn't the "yellow" plate. Eek

Actually, that was very funny. It took me a second, but I got it. LOL

Congrats Nice Score. I got 1 of 5 Peter Criss Drumhead peices from a Target Box of 5 packs from one of the KISS sets. Only place to buy cards at retail around here. The few BB card shops and the last remaining comic shop quit carrying NS other than game cards years ago.

Picked up a rack pack at Target.

Had 24 cards total with a poster of Adam Bomb.
Among the 24 cards were two green parallels and one 3d card...the exact one I needed to finish the set.

I just opened 6 packs of GPK Flashbacks series 2. They were packaged in blister packs of 2 packs each with a bonus sticker.

Green parallels:

59b Drippy Debbie
71b Jason Basin
78b Valarie Vomit

Pink parallels:

20a Babbling Brooke
43a Mickey Mouths
25b Bushy Bernice

Adam Mania:

7 of 10. This is the sticker where a bunch of roaches are exploding out of his head.

Bonus Stickers (four overall):

B1 Locked Dorian
B2 Vermin Herman
B3 Facey Tracie

I think this is a high quality set and lives up to the expectations I have for Topps.

All of these are up for trade.

I got one more two pack blister today. I pulled a green parallel of 40a, "John John", and I also got a silver parallel of 12a "Jolted Joel". For my bonus sticker I got another of B3, "Facey Tracey".
