Popular with the kids, but a parent’s worst nightmare, the Garbage Pail Kids cards were quite a novelty item in the 1980’s. If you have some of these lying around, you might want to see how much they’re selling for. Depending on the card, some go for $300-$400 a piece. And if you have the whole set?
