Are garbage pail kids stickers/cards popular?

I have a set that I would like to sell I just don't know what they are worth. I believe they are first edition. I can pull them out and take some pics if anyone wants to see them....

    I don’t know anything specifically about Garbage Pail Kids, but series 1 is definitely worth something… someone on eBay sold 80 cards from 1985 for a few hundred (https://www.ebay.com/itm/266274052907 ), a set for $1K (https://www.ebay.com/itm/385643997434 ) and some series 1 are listed for hundreds/thousands (“listed” doesn’t mean they’ll sell for that, but you likely have something of good value there).

    Your first series is going to be your most valuable. For the first and second series there are two variations. One comes with a matte finish and the other a gloss. While both have value, especially for the first series, the gloss is worth a little bit more. As the series go, they dip in value with the exception of the last few series. There are some error cards too that can have a premium.

    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one.

    I took some pictures today. I really don't like handling cards to much so I just did the obverse. The reverse is a matte finish so these are not the glossy type.
    Pretty clever cards and the same year I graduated H.S.!

    I've been having some fun with GPK cards of late - just nostalgia really. However here are some recent graded pick-ups for comparisons sake. Seems to me like most of the cards posted above are maybe too much off-center to be worth grading assuming that was the thought. Definitely saleable, though.

    And a couple series 1 uk minis:

    Good luck!

    Well you do have the Holy Grail of GPK cards, 1st Series... Unfortunately a lot of the are off center, so that starts you off at a 7 or 6 off the bat! If they were perfect, your Nasty Nick and Adam Bomb would be $5k+ cards.

    You can look at graded values for the cards you have here.....
