Garbage Pail Kids - 7th Series
Topps - 1987

Preface: Topps produced each Garbage Pail Kids series as a natural group of 88
cards, 44 each of the "a" and "b" variety.  Often the numerical series has fewer
than 44 cards, and the additional cards were planned from the beginning as
variations.  Usually these "planned" variations show up as different back

The 7th series had two back variations: cards 253a&b and 265a&b.  A numerical
set is 84 cards, a variation set is 88 cards.

In mid-production, the color of the number printed on card 289b was changed,
giving a "black number" and "white number" variation.  A numerical set is thus
84 cards, and a complete variation set includes 89 cards (or 91 cards; see below).

Also reported is a variation in the color of the front GPK logo, either "blue"
or "purple" for cards 260b and 261b. I haven't seen this variation to judge
whether it is a true variation or just a production fault caused by switching
batches of ink. Thanks to Wayne Genualdi and Rachel Miller for updates!
