Metallica, Ghost, Mastodon, Megadeth and More Get the Garbage Pail Kids Card Treatment


Add this one to that short list you’re keeping of holiday gifts for your metalhead boo (you’ve already started keeping one, right?): Garbage Pail Kids, the long-running series of Topps trading cards originally designed to spoof Cabbage Patch Kids, has just released a new line of its Battle Of The Bands series.

Metal lends itself perfectly to the inherently gruesome nature of the Garbage Pail Kids aesthetic, so it’s not surprise to see a ton of heavy acts getting the treatment this time around. Among them: Ozzy, Anthrax, Rob Zombie, Metallica, Mastodon, Ghost, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Marilyn Manson, Black Sabbath and a whole lot more.

The cards are available at Topps’ website for $9.99 per box, with each box containing five packs of cards and eight stickers.  Here’s the full list of all the cards in the series with some previews of a few below, via Metal Injection:
