Each card in the Garbage Pail Kid database can be viewed for specific information.
Though some of the information may seem trivial, it really helps when
searching for a specific card. I've used it a couple times
to determine which card was contained in a sealed pack.
The GPK database contains 1300+ records (that includes variations).
The fields are as follows:
||This is a unique number I use to identify each Garbage Pail Kid card. It's
technically a key field for the database|
||This is the number that appears in the upper (1-620)
||This is the letter that appears next to the number which was used to identify a
card from its alias (a or b).|
[NOTE: 8th series was the only series to use capital letters,
although they are listed as lowercase in the database]
||This is the name of the Garbage Pail Kid. Although the actual cards used BOLD
lettering for the names, the database doesn't distinguish which is which. Any
confusion, however, was noted in the Comments field|
||This is the series of the card (1-15). |
[NOTE: The database does not include the unreleased 16th
||This field notes what appeared on the back of the card. A full search on the backs
can be found here|
||This is the style of GPK header used.
It is either Old () or
||This is the color of the font inside the Garbage Pail Kid header|
||This is the color of the box that contains the name|
||This is the color of the text inside the name box|
