It’s not often as a collector that you can “make” steady money by opening a product. However, I was able to do that last year with the Topps Chrome WWE product.
As I always do, I took a look at the cards when I stopped at Walmart on the way home today. There wasn’t any hockey (shocker, I’m in Texas), but I did see the WWE Chrome that came out last week. There were blaster boxes, and then there were two hanger boxes. The hangers include a Sting insert card, three refractors and four atomic refractors (which are retail only) in each 18 card box/pack.
After doing so well last year, I decided it was worth a shot to pick them up and give a whirl. After opening everything, I was happy with how they turned out. I didn’t hit anything huge, but again, it could have been a lot worse.
Sting Championship Spotlight:
Among my base cards was a Bray Wyatt that I will keep for myself. Also, there was a John Cena, Sting and two NXT cards (Colin Cassady and Hideo Itami).
I was pleasantly surprised to see one of these in each box:
I don’t recall any time recently that coupons have been inserted into product. To be honest, I don’t know if the “Value Box” are the hanger boxes or the blasters. Either way, it’s a nice touch and something that SHOULD encourage collectors to go back for seconds.
