LES CRADOS


INTRODUCTION

     Les Crados were printed by the Topps Italy Co., and released throughout France.  A total of two series, measuring 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches, that are non-die cut (peeling from the edges), were produced with some back variations.  They have no "peel here" arrows. The cards come 5 to a wax pack.  The cards were released around 1988 after the success of the Garbage Pail Kids in the U.S. and the U.K.  A 44 card 'a' variation test set was released in France and Belgium in 1986 with the Garbage Pail Kids title in English and the names and writing in French.



The second installment of "Les Crados" was released in September of 2004 in the U.K., manufactured by Topps Europe Ltd., associated with Merlin Stickers and released throughout parts of northern Europe. The All New Series 1 Album set is colored and marketed much like the ANS1 from the U.S. but contains images from the ANS1, ANS2, and various older U.S. GPK sets. The stickers measure slightly smaller than the U.S. cards at 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
