A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We love to see this passion in what people collect. We talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, Garbage Pail Kid card collection and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.
This Week’s Collector – Garbage Pail Kid Card Collection
This week’s collector is from Paul. Paul recently went home to visit family and found his old school Garbage Pail Kid cards.
I just got back from visiting my family in Georgia. I was showing my kids all the toys and cards I had when I was their age. To my surprise and my wife’s chagrin, we stumbled upon my Garbage Pail Kid card collection. My kids snickered at the random and quirky characters. They laughed at the names. My mom said she hated me collecting those cards, but at least her grandkids had a good laugh. My kids wanted us to take them back home with us. They know split up the collection evenly and display the cards in their card binders.
Thanks for sharing Paul. I really enjoyed your story. I had a few of those card back in the day. They were very unique.
It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.
