Sweet Garbage Pail Kids of Mine

Stand up and be counted for what you are about to receive…

It’s not everyday that you get an artist performing concurrently with two of the largest acts in the world of hard rock (or any other musical genre), so when it does happen, what better way to commemorate it than with trading cards stickers.

Once I saw these bad boys, I knew I just had to have them. I can’t think of another act (or in this case, two) that is more ripe for a GPK card. With Guns you have Slash and his top hat/hair and with AC/DC, you have Angus and his school boy uniform. And of course there is ‘Fat Axl’ with his handlebar mustache, sitting on Dave Grohl’s throne. Probably no rock star embodies a GPK character quite like Mr. Rose. Hopefully the singer has mellowed out as he’s gotten older. Years ago, Angry Axl would have made the perfect GPK sticker.

At $9.99 shipped, I overpaid when I pulled the trigger on these Topps Now stickers- but what the hell. With a print run of only 495 and no guarantee of Axl working with AC/DC (or Slash and Duff) beyond their booked tours, I wasn’t going to let this one pass my by.
