  • History of GPKUG Fan Sets

    This post will serve as a quick history of the GPK Fan Sets. The purpose of this post is to acquaint collectors with the Fan Sets so that if they become interested in collecting them, they know what to look for.

    The Garbage Pail Kids Underground (GPKUG) Fan sets began in 2011. There has been a total of 9 Fan Sets.

    Notes: At some point after FS1 shipped, another card featuring Travellin’ Travis was created. The card was numbered x/100 and was sent to everyone that purchased a FS1. Additional cards were sent to other GPK collectors. Some unnumbered Travellin’ Travis cards also made it into circulation.

    Notes: Fan Set 3 was the first fan set to come wrapped in packs. FS3 came wrapped in yellow wax packs. A piece of “Final Art” was also produced by GPK Artist Dustin Graham for this set. The character on the Final Art was the character on the wax packs.

            • #7
              A strange thing happened after Fan Set 6. Instead of being produced by the members of GPKUG, a mysterious group of individuals took over. They started branding the Fan Sets as “Black Market Trading Company Fan Sets.” Although the identities of individuals involved with the Black Market Trading Company are unknown, they have maintained the same high quality standards as the previous Fan Sets.

              Fan Set 7 / Black Market Fan Set 1 / BMFS1

The second option was a cello ‘Jumbo’ style pack that had all 30 cards and a header card wrapped in clear cellophane.

                  Fan Set 9 / Black Market Fan Set 3 / Fan Set 1 Redux

                  Notes: Fan Set 9, better known as Fan Set 1 Redux (FS1-R), was produced to allow people who may not have had a chance to purchase FS1 in 2011 the opportunity to have these cards.

                    Fan Set 10 / Bukimi Kun 2
                    Year of Release: June 2019
                    Language: Japanese
                    Name: Bukimi Kun 2
                    Number of cards: 215
                    Extras: N/A
                    Number of Boxes produced: 100
                    Notes: As you may know, the Original Japanese Bukimi Kun Set and Israeli Havurat Hazevel sets mirrored each other. Each set contained the same exact 168 cards with characters from OS1, 2, 3 and 6. Unfortunately the Japanese Bukimi Kun line ended after the first release. Israeli Havurat Hazevel continued to make a 2nd and 3rd series. The Israeli 2nd series consisted of 209 cards from the USA OS4, OS5, OS7, OS8 and OS9 Garbage Pail Kids releases.

                    Bukimi Kun Series 2 contained all 209 cards (numbered 401-609) in the Israeli Havurat Hazevel Second series release along with 6 extra cards. The extra cards consisted of a P1 card of Dough Boyd (interestingly the only OS5 card not in Havurat Hazevel 2nd series), a censored No Number Semi Colin, and four additional censored cards.

                    The Bukimi Kun Series 2 release came in a shrink wrapped box featuring Bony Tony. Inside the box is a shrink wrapped stack of 215 cards.Bukimi Kun 2.jpg

The finishes were Rainbow, Prism, Transparent, Brushed Aluminum, Sparkle, and Mirror.

                            Those Black Market Guys produce the best GPK sets every year. Can’t wait to see what they cook up next.

                              I bet they are way sold out by now. What is a fair price if they are on eBay?
