1985 Garbage Pail Kids Original Series 2 (OS2) set: #42a/b-#83a/b

Here's a basic 84-card complete glossy set of the Live Mike puzzle variation for Original Series 2 (OS2).  It does not include the award back variations for #42a and #42b, the checklist back variations for #46a, #46b, #47a, and #47b. nor does it contain the name change variation for #49b, which would make this a 91-card set.  My actual personal collection for OS2 consists of 3 different sets: an 86-card Messy Tessie matte back variation, a 91-card Messy Tessie glossy back variation, and a 91-card Live Mike glossy back variation.

1986 Garbage Pail Kids Original Series 3 (OS3) set: #84a/b-#124a/b

     Here's a basic 82-card complete set of Original Series 3.  It does not include the back variations for #82a, 82b, 110a, 110b, 113a, and 113b, which would make this an 88-card set.  It also doesn't include the 40 different copyright/no copyright variants that would make this set an 128 card set.  My actual personal collection includes to separate 88-card sets for the no copyright version and the copyright version.  I typically value the non-copyright variations 50% more than the copyright variations, and the 6 back variations even more.
