Here is your chance to own the crown jewel of GPK sets and one of the most amazing relics of 80's nostalgia on the planet! Make me an offer I cant refuse for the complete set of both matte and glossy variations of 1985 Topps Garbage Pail Kids, all professionally graded Gem Mint by PSA. Each of the two subsets are full 88 card variation sets of the controversial Topps parody of Cabbage Patch Kids, for a total of 176 graded PSA 10 cards.

This set has been meticulously maintained and lesser quality gems were consistently swapped out for higher quality ones even after the set was complete. All slabs were covered in Mylar sleeves immediately upon receipt, and then stored in a pet free, smoke free, climate controlled location. It is truly the gemmiest of the gem sets and the finest of the two that exist. If the owner of the other set disagrees Id be happy to post photos and put it to a public vote on any platform on the internet.

It took over half a decade to assemble this set and it would be even more difficult now as more collectors have joined the gem hunt and prices have been quickly increasing. This is an extremely rare opportunity for the right collector, a wistful Gen-Xer, or anyone looking to diversify into collectibles. As of December 31, 2018, the PWCC Top 500 Index yielded a 10-year return on investment (ROI) of 165% compared to 71% for the S&P 500 (adjusted for stock splits and other corporate actions) since December 31, 2007. Trading cards are easily the most liquid of all tangible asset markets and this factor is continuing to drive attention towards them, especially among new wealth, Huigens told me. Meanwhile, cards have held their own during recent market volatility and economic anxiety.

As the chart shows, the same held true during the Great Recession. The noticeable dip two years ago resulted from a market correction following a perceived bubble.

People have a deeper emotional connection to a Derek Jeter than they do to Amazon shares, Huigens adds. As we, the children of the 80's, continue to age into more wealth and nostalgia this set is certain to increase in value.

A few pictures have been included, but I'm happy to send more to interested buyers. I may deliver it personally, depending on your location. Buyers are welcome to come pick it up in person in Santa Barbara, California and will be provided a night at the Ritz Carlton on my account if you choose that option.
