2013-2014 Garbage Pail Kids Abrams ComicArts Calendar (ACS2)

     The 2013-2014 Garbage Pail Kids 16-month calendar by Abrams ComicArts came out in August 2013.  It represented a sequel to the Garbage Pail Kids book containing photographs of every GPK from OS1-OS5, which was released the previous year.  Both Abrams ComicArts products contained a 4-card bonus set of previously unpublished characters intended for earlier series releases.  This post is just focused on displaying all of the pages from the 10.5" x 14.5" calendar release, which originally retailed for $14.99.

Orpaned GPK of Original Series 1

While building my OS1 glossy and matte back sets, I often encounter lots including some of the following peeled sticker cards.  At first, I was repulsed by these incomplete cards like some type of abomination to the real thing, but I've since warmed up to them a bit.  These cards were definitely well-enjoyed over the years, and still make for a good filler to any starter collection at an inexpensive price.  Take a look.

1989 GPK Original Series 16 (OS16) Set: #621a/b-661a/b

As a follow-up to my previous post on OS16, I've added the 16 OS16 cards from 2013 Chrome Series 1 to the 58 OS16 cards I have from 2003 All-New Series 1 for a combined total of 74 OS16 cards out of the 82-card set originally set to be released in the Spring of 1989.

I'm still missing 8 cards to complete my OS16 set, which I've shown below courtesy of 

I know about 2 more of these being available from the 2011 Flashback Series 2 set as #70a/b Idol Ira & Ken Tiki, but I'm still waiting to find a good deal on a matching pair to fill-in for #659a/b in my OS16 set. 

For the last 6 cards needed to complete my OS16 set, I've discover that 3 of them are available as bonus cards in the 2012 GPK book.  I guess I could get 2 books to complete the last 6 cards.  I'm not currently aware of any other way to complete the final 6 right now.
