I would have thought if these were to be given away with shirts there would have been loads of them printed so they must be somewhere.

John posted a scan of the P1 promo for me in the General Promo section below.

Never knew that one existed, either !

I worked on this project with the Hundreds.

They did a set of shirts, keychains, hats, and posters. I don't recall cards or stickers, but it was 3 yrs ago so maybe my memory is just fuzzy. I just sent an email to them real quick to see what the deal was. Could have been promos for an event or something.

They also did a set of giant, poster sized sticker cards-- in a giant wax wrapper-- limited to just 15 sets. Sent to press and media only.

btw, the characters are based on employees of the company (The Hundreds)

Martian, so these cards came out in 2011 ? I don't see a date on them

I never heard of the P1 promo or the 10 card set, nor did any of my friends, until someone posted on these on a Garbage Pail Kids Facebook page the other day.

Even the die hard promo collectors I spoke to said they never saw the P1 promo before

Spoke to a guy from Hundreds (or formerly of Hundreds-- Ashley of "Trashy Ashley")…

As I suspected, these were never sticker cards. What you're seeing here it sounds like are the keychains. The only time they were cards were the giant poster-sized ones.

Unless you've got more info, it sounds like these are not promo cards after all.

I don't know what to say, but I have all 10 in hand plus the P1 promo. They are not key chains. They are cards with peel off stickers on the front, like so many other GPK stickers

May I ask where/how you got them?

Sure. From a collector on a GPK Facebook page who says that he obtained them from Hundreds. There was also some discussion and photos of the other items you mentioned, the oversized posters, etc

I'm getting touch with the guys at The Hundreds to see how many were made. And also so I can get some for myself!

Martian Commander, good luck

I don't know if you saw the scan of the P1 in the General Promo section below, that John posted for me. Look at the outline around the character. Clearly both the P1 and the 10 card set are peel off stickers

The plot thickens...

Ben at the Hundreds insists they never printed standard sized sticker cards.

Though perhaps at first it might sound far fetched, I wonder if a fan simply scanned the oversized poster cards and had a unique set (or sets) printed bootleg.

I don't know-- I can say with sincerity it's a bit of a conundrum.

You can email me at mistermycroft@msn.com and I will give you the name of the guy on Facebook who has them. You can then speak with him to get more info

Hot Topic also has a design in both male and female, if you're looking for something different than the plain Adam Bomb.

Hi Martian Commander, i stumbled on this thread (http://nonsportupdate.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/954605353/m/2577004176) and noticed you have contact information for the guy who has these hundreds sticker card sets for sale. Not the larger ones or the keychains, just the regular sticker cards. I Hope you can help me with this as i really love the artwork on them. Thanks for your help.

P.S. - Do you know how much they are selling for?

Just became of aware of this. I didn't have his contact info previously. Wasn't aware this was such a significant problem until now.

Am dealing with it currently... disappointed to see it was a trusted member of the community.

Thanks.
