This was tough. I was all set to choose 5, as it was just a cool, stark contrast to the other colorful wrappers. However, I went with Series 1, for two reasons. One, those pink and blue colors exemplify the 80s, as they were in fashion, BMX bikes, etc. Two, growing up in NY, we were lucky enough to catch the first wave! I still remember the absolute thrill of seeing a box of series 1 on the counter of a stationary store. Honorable mention after 1 and 5, are 7 and 8.
I had to go with Series 1. That was the first series I started purchasing as a kid. The bright pink wrappers caught my attention. Any other color at the time might not have and there's a chance I may never had collected GPK's at all. Or at the least I would've missed out on the first series. I still remember buying those pink wax packs at my neighborhood convenient store back in PA.
