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 8th series had two back variations: cards 298a&b and 318a&b.
A numerical set is 84 cards, and a variation set is 88 cards.
