Garbage Pail Kids Flashbacks 2
Saw the gravity feed retail packs at Target today. $1.99 a pack for 8 cards. A few new packs I can bust open.

Does anyone know if the hobby boxes and the retail boxes are identical for this release? A Topps representative told my Card shop owner that there was a problem with his order and they would have to send retail boxes instead of hobby boxes, but not to worry as they were identical. I find this hard to believe as they have ALWAYS had different inserts and ratios of! Thanks for any help! Can't seem to get any help from their web site! Frown

Does not sound promising!

Pretty sure last years was identical. Even looking at Barren's site, the wrappers were the same.

Main thing I noticed is the price tag printed on the target retail boxes.

Thanks for the info glim! From what I could find out from sellers auctions on that web site, the only difference was that the hobby boxes have a poster in the box and the retail boxes don't. I was also wondering about the sketch card ratio. The previous sketches were included 1 in an eight box hobby case, but the retail cases are 16 boxes to a case. They are a big draw of course so that would be a major difference!

No posters in the hobby boxes. Here are the odds on the packs (24 packs/box):

Sketch cards 1:469
Shaped sketch cards 1:106

Wow, now those are some very LOW odds.

I was just at Target and they didn't have the gravity feed box but they did have rack packs. They were in the toy department with the collectable card games. They are $4.99 per pack and have 24 cards and a poster. I bought one pack and got a poster of Michael MUTANT. Does anyone know if there is more than one poster?

Have not seen those yet at my Target. Hope there are more! Nothing on Jeffs Checklist site yet.

I just found packs of these at the Dollar Tree for $1.00. But they only have four stickers per pack and no insert cards. I bought a couple of packs just so I would have the variant wrapper.
