The 2014 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Series 1 see the Brand-New Series banner get dropped in favor of an annual name. The overall feel of the cards haven't changed much though like it did when All-New Series was changed to BNS.

The base set has 110 new cards. That translates in 55 new characters, each with A and B versions. Parallels include Black (1:2 packs), Gold (85 per card) and Printing Plates. Hobby Collector boxes have several additional exclusive parallels. Metallic Red and Full-Bleed Canvas are each inserted one per pack. Rarer Hobby Collector-exclusive parallels include Blank Back (1:24 packs), Cloth Sticker (1:48 packs) and Sepia (1:48 packs).

With the 2014 Winter Olympics kicking off in Sochi days after the set's release, there are several Olympic-themed cards. Of course, being that this is Garbage Pail Kids, they've been dubbed the Olym-Picks. Olym-Picks Athletes poke fun at popular sports with 22 cards (11 A/B characters). Ten Olym-Picks C Variations (1:100 packs) add a third version for select characters. Ten Olym-Picks Motion Cards use lenticular technology to show epic crashes and GPK grossness. The set also has Etched Foil Olym-Picks Medals for ten events. Each has Bronze, Silver and Gold versions.

Exclusive to hobby boxes (both types) are eight different Bonus Stickers, which are inserted 1:24 packs. As far as premium hits go, there are Artist Autographs and Sketch Cards.

Besides parallels, Hobby Collector boxes have more exclusive content. A total of 500 Die-Cut Sketch Cards have been made for the entire production run. Texture Relics (1:48 packs) add to the icky factor, using manufactured relics to add a tactile dimension to popular GPK characters. Art Variations, which are inserted one per Hobby Collector case, use different artwork used for base cards.
