CANADIAN

GARBAGE PAIL KIDS


PRINT RUN INTRO PARAGRAPH

          The only Garbage Pail Kids manufactured in Canada, under the O-Pee-Chee Company name for the Topps Chewing Gum Company, was the 1st series which was released throughout Canada in 1985-6.  The cards are almost identical to the U.S. version with the O-Pee-Chee label placed on the box and wrapper with English and French-Canadian translations.  The cards measure 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 and come 4 to a wax pack with a slab of gum, unlike the U.S. version, which comes 5 cards to a wax pack and a slab of gum.  The experienced collector would be able to tell the difference between the Canadian and U.S. cards.  The edges of the Canadian cards are somewhat rougher, or not as clean-cut, as the U.S. version and the slab of gum is extremely thin.  (The 9th U.S. series -03- and -04- releases also have the rougher edges and thin gum, which were manufactured in Canada and released in the U.S.)
