PRINT RUN PARAGRAPH

Release Date: 2005

The All-New Series 1 GPK Swedish set was published in the early part of 2005 by Topps Europe Ltd. (Merlin Stickers), and distributed throughout Sweden by Svenska Interpress AB (Swedish Interprise Ltd). A total of 1 print run was released during a resurrection of the 80's nostalgic GPK's in the U.S. and in the U.K. with all-new releases. The Swedish GPK series is a direct replication of the U.K. All-New Series 1 and Finnish All-New Series sets comprised of 37 images from the ANS1 U.S. set and 11 images from the ANS2 U.S. set without any "a" or "b" twins. The set also contains 10 foil cards from the ANS1 U.S. set, but the Finnish and Swedish sets come with an additional bonus foil card that came packaged in the binder. Each paper pack contains 4 stickers, 1 foil card, and a slip of paper for a binder offer which included two free packs and a free bonus foil card. The set contains the standard size of 2.5 x 3.5 as in the U.S. release. The Sweden, Finland and U.K. foil cards are much brighter and printed on heavier stock than the U.S. foils.

FUN FACTS and TIDBITS

1.
The "PATTY Putty - Muggin' MEGAN" on the front side and "Double HEATHER - Schizo FRAN" on the back side Bonus Foil Card can be acquired through the Binder Offer slip found in every pack. This B1 numbered, with no name card, are two characters not used in the U.K. release and is a special card to the Sweden and Finland sets.


2
. The Checklist states that card #14 as "Koola OL", when it should be spelled "Koola OLA". Thanks Stefan Lennartsson for the information on the binder typo, and for the heads-up on the release.

3.
The Series Contains Three "Scratch 'n Stink" Chase Cards From The New 2nd U.S. Series set placed within the set as regular cards without the scratch and stink affect. All three have slightly different variations from the original cards. The same occurs in the All New Series 1 U.K. and Finland release as well.


S2a "Cheese LUIS" and S2b "Eruptin' ERIC" - 32 "BERT Von Ostfjärt"
(red GPK banner changed to a blue GPK banner, gas cloud placed in back of the changed GPK banner, and yellow name bar changed to a light-green name bar)


S3a "Moldy MOLLY" and S3a "Stinkin' STEPHANIE" - 35 "ESTER Pester"
(red GPK banner changed to a blue GPK banner, picture shifted slightly upwards - head now behind GPK banner, and light-blue name bar changed to a dark-blue name bar)



S5a "Topping TOM" and S5b "DOM E. Nose" - 37 "TORE Kletmann"
(chef's hat placed in back of the GPK banner, and picture shifted slightly to the right and upwards)

4. As with the U.K. release, The Set Has the 'PEEL HERE' Arrow Pointing To The Edge Of The Card where the entire face of the card is the sticker where as in the U.S. sets the cards are die-cut stickers.

5
. The Set Contains A 3-Part Checklist: 1/3 containing the names for the foil cards; 2/3 containing the names for the first 24 cards (numbering 1-24); and 3/3 containing the names for the last 24 cards (numbering 25-48). Checklist card 1/3:


6. The Puzzle Borders Have No White Outline like the U.S. puzzles from the New 1st U.S. release, the 5 puzzles have a solid coloured border. The foil backs contain the "Completed Puzzle" pictures. Numerically, the first 9 cards of the series consist of the 1st puzzle, the next 9 cards are the 2nd puzzle and so on through card # 45 for the five puzzles, and the last three cards in the set contain the 3 different checklists.

7. The Swedish Card #29 has the same name as the Finland card #29; "HARRY Potta".



GPK HISTORY SECTION

1. The Set Consists Of Artwork Used From The All-New U.S. series 1 and from the All-New U.S. series 2. Forty-seven images from the 1st U.S. series and eleven images from the 2nd U.S. series
