One of my favorite things about the WWE Topps sets is that they include the legends. I watch sporadically these days, but I was very devoted as kid (and in college). It’s cool to see cards of the guys of my youth and get that momentary blast from the past. Some of my fondest youth memories are watching wrestling and Star Wars with my dad.
These guys were some of my favorites as a kid. Ricky Steamboat was my first “favorite.” I believe that I cried when Macho Man took a ring bell to his throat on Saturday Night Main event. Later on I liked the heels more, as you can tell in the pic above with The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase, Irwin R. Schyster and Bam Bam Bigelow. There was no Mr. Perfect or Big Boss Man in this box.
Two of my current favorites. I have always liked Brock Lesnar. Say what you want about the man, but he is an athlete. If you didn’t know, Bray Wyatt’s name is Windham Rotunda. His father is Mike Rotunda, Irwin R. Schyster in the picture above.
There was one black border and one nWo card in the box, which is right on stated odds. I did get two of the 2k16 cards, after only one in the first box I opened.
If you haven’t seen the first post to know, I’m selling the relic packs included in each box. They are unopened. I figured I’d give someone else the fun.
