Topps produced each Garbage Pail Kids series as a natural group of 88 cards, 44 each of the "a" and "b" variety.
Often the numerical series has fewer than 44 cards, and the additional cards were planned from the beginning as variations.
Usually these "planned" variations show up as different back designs.
The 7th series had two back variations: cards 253a&b and 265a&b.
A numerical set is 84 cards, a variation set is 88 cards.
In mid-production, the color of the number printed on card 289b was changed, giving a "black number" and "white number" variation.
A numerical set is thus 84 cards, and a complete variation set includes 89 cards (or 91 cards; see below).
Also reported is a variation in the color of the front GPK logo, either "blue" or "purple" for cards 260b and 261b.
