Will someone please explain the difference between die cut vs. not die cut garbage pail kids cards as it pertains to the first 15 original series? Thank you.
A GPK card measures 3.5" by 2.5", and the front of the card is actually a sticker that can be peeled off of its paper backing. On a non die-cut card, there is one complete sticker and it has the same 3.5" by 2.5" dimensions as the card back.
However, a die-cut sticker will essentially have two stickers on the front of the card - a border sticker, which measures 3.5" by 2.5", but has its middle cut out, and also the middle sticker (where the actually GPK character and name plates appear), whose measurements vary, but fits perfectly inside the border sticker. This is because the card has been die-cut so that just the character can be removed from the card while the border sticker remains attached (if one so chooses).
All original series 1-15 have die-cut cards. Series 15 also has non die-cut cards, and I suppose this can be considered an "error", but is actually more common than the die-cut version.
Seymour, you are fantastic. Thank you very much for the information!
No problem at all, and welcome to the UG!

Dxtc0187: Not true! I've heard Barf can only measure things that are that small! He's only seen thicker on his pc!

seymourbarf: Probably not on this board. I don’t have a way to measure something that small, and no one else really comes to this board anymore. You would have better luck asking your question on the new GPKUG site. Good luck!

drunkken9b: Thank you. I'll take a look at the new board. I saw that website and the 1/32", but I'm measuring cards that are 1/64" or 0.015" which makes me think I bought some counterfeit cards? Any chance someone could measure card thickness and verify this?

seymourbarf: As for card thickness, I’m not sure this is official, but I am seeing a measurement of 1/32nd of an inch: www.wgpkr.com/GPK/US/

seymourbarf: Hey, this is the old message board. It’s pretty much shut down. The new board is here: www.gpkug.com/

drunkken9b: Hey all, I'm new here and guess I can't post stuff yet, not sure? But one question for the group - can someone tell me exactly how thick a GPK card should be? I came across some cards on ebay that seemed too thin to be genuine.

Game8: I’m sure he has some gems in there. Let alone unpublished stuff

seymourbarf: That is a good point. I wonder just what is in his private collection. I am sure he has pieces that would make my jaw drop. I would probably die from the overwhelming desire to own at least a few of them!
Feb 18, 2022 10:04:36 GMT -5
Game8: I would definitely buy more if it were pieces I really wanted. But what he has left is in his private collection. So if he ever sells those it’s going to cost me lol

seymourbarf: You don't have to name specific CRs, of course.
Feb 18, 2022 9:44:24 GMT -5
seymourbarf: Stefano, if John Pound ever reopens his art sales, will you buy more of his CRs? Or does he not have any left that you want?

Game8: Wish I bought the pizza face rough when I had the chance lol
Feb 18, 2022 7:22:40 GMT -5
seymourbarf: I am jealous of all those CRs! Makes me wish I had held on to the Pepperoni Tony CR.
