2022 Topps Garbage Pail Kids: Book Worms Checklist and Details

Share:

In recent years there have been sets devoted to music and all things horror. Now, the Garbage Pail Kids are putting their mark on literature. 2022 Topps Garbage Pail Kids: Book Worms delves into the classics with their own brand of gross-out gags and satire.

Available with both hobby and hobby collector configurations, each box type has the same main set but different levels of inserts.

2022 Topps Garbage Pail Kids: Book Worms Checklist Overview

The base set has 200 total sticker cards — 100 different pieces of art, each with the traditional A/B name variations. The set tackles classic books and characters.

    I have all the original garage pail kids cards from the 80’s I found in my old school box I saved from when I was a kid. How much are they worth?
