Garbage Pail Kid “Blasted Billy” PSA

The card featured on this blog in my “Blasted Billy” PSA card. This card is from the 1st Series of Garbage Pail Kids, and was released in 1985 by Topps (click here to view my blog of my Garbage Pail Kids 1st Series complete set).

This is a very low-grade card considering the year of issue. The only reason I ended up purchasing it was because I was able to get it for dirt-cheap (and I love Garbage Pail Kids). I notice a lot of people go overboard with GPK PSA cards, paying rediculious prices for cards, that in all actuality, are not all-that rare, nor all-that valuable.

PSA population reports show that the market has been flooded with GPK cards by morons that are under the false impression that GPK’s are a super valuable and rare item, when it’s just their imagination. Fun to collect and look through, GPK’s are a great and unforgettable part of 80’s memorabilia. I will always enjoy Garbage Pail Kids cards, but there are definately a lot more valuable cards to collect out there.
