In 2012, as a follow-up the hugely successful GPKUG Garbage Pail Kids Persian Farsi and Dutch Fan Sets, -TCT and Jimbo from GPKUG released the GPKUG Fan Set III – a Hindi version. -TCT and Jimbo once again collaborated on the concept and -TCT was the art director. The Hindi Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set III (pronounced Kacara Balti Se Bacce) consisted of 20 cards. The card fronts have bright green borders and the backs contain original artwork by -TCT. Card #20 contains a checklist. There were also two promo cards made for the Hindi GPK Fan set. The back of one promo card was printed upside down so a corrected promo card was also printed.
The biggest change between the Hindi Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set and the previous sets is the fact that the Hindi Fan set was put into wax packs. Each wax pack contained 5 cards. Purchasers of the Hindi Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set received four packs which contained a complete 20 card set. The original artwork created by -TCT that was used on the back of the cards was also used for the pack wrappers.
A total of 200 sets of the GPKUG Hindi Fan Set III were printed. The previous GPKUG Fan Sets had print runs of approximately 50 sets. The number of sets was increased for the 3rd fan set to meet demands of collectors.
Four “printing plates” were used in creating the wax wrappers. The printing plates were made of polyester. Two of the four printing plates were raffled off on GPKUG in late 2012.
There are a limited number of the GPKUG Hindi Garbage Pail Kids Fan Set III still available. Please contact me through this blog or contact -TCT or Jimbo over at GPKUG if you are interested in purchasing one.
