Few big updates coming now and in the next day or two as I found a few big sellers on eBay letting a tonne of cards go for cheap BIN prices. First though is another jewel in the CM Punk collection, the Topps 2010 Pltinum Red relic parallel numbered #10/10, I traded a bit over the odds for this (it cost me my Miz & Orton auto relics) but I think it was worth it for something I haven’t seen around on eBay or other trading sites at all.

Another big card that I picked up is this Kofi Kingston 2010 Topps Signature Swatch, I’d had my eye on it when the seller was relisting it on eBay for $25 and I got it with the only bid on it. I’m not a huge fan of Kofi but it’s a nice rare card and good trade bait too!

Forgot to post up a few recent mail days, I’ll do them in separate posts with this first one being various non-sports collections and recent wrestling next.

These were all really cheap Inkworks/Razor Archive auto pickups. I’ve wanted to get all 4 First Wave autos for a while as I loved that show when it aired (i was only 13 when it was on so looking back now it may not be very good), the only one missing is the Traci Lords who for obvious reasons sells pretty high so if you have one for trade let me know!

The Kartheiser was picked up to maybe start a Mad Men side project and the Veronica Mars are for my younger sister who really likes that show so I said I’d get from the seller while I was getting the other four.








Topps 2011 WWE Champions autograph list & odds revealed

15 May got the scoop on the checklists and odd of autographs from this set coming out next month. The odds of one autograph per 150 packs indicate it’ll be one auto per 6 box case. It’s also worth noting that the Rey Mysterio auto promised in the presell sheet has one again failed to materialize. Personally I’m glad I don’t have any boxes preordered but I might pick up a few of the auto cards on the after market, the Edge one in particular as it’ll probably be his last one for a long time.

  • Dolph Ziggler
  • Edge
  • John Cena
  • Kofi Kingston
  • Layla
  • Michelle McCool
  • The Miz
  • Natalya
  • Randy Orton
  • Santino Marella
  • Sheamus
  • Vladimir Kozlov

Yet more cards for the CM Punk collections and the 2010 Topps auto collection came over the last few days. The first card to arrive was one of the best I’ve added to the Punk collection. Manged to secure it for only $25 too. I saw the CM Punk red 1/1 of the other Platinum insert set (Platinum Performance) appear on eBay in the inital flood of Platinum cards around the end of last year but it was snapped up for $80 almost instantly. I actually had the cash at the time to splurge but only discovered the listing in the Completed Listings after it had sold.

Next up was a lot of 6 different 2010 Topps WWE autograph cards. The dual Punk/Serena is for the Punk collection and the rest are for the base auto collection. I now only need 3 autos for that collection, Sheamus, John Cena & The Big Show. If anyone reading this has one for trade then leave a comment here with your email and I’ll get back to you. The total price of this lot (all were separate Best Offers) was $57 with the Edge being $18, the Punk/Serena being $13 and the rest averaging abou $5 to $7.

[Box Breaks #7] Two boxes of Topps 2007 WWE Heritage III

30 Mar

I picked up two of te hobby boxes off of eBay last weekk r prettyy ap, each box was a BIN of only $20 though the seller charged me $27 for shipping which I though was a little over the top. I was thinking of complaining but the break was decent enough for the price.. I’m not bothering to scan the Kennedy relic as it’s prety much worthless.

Box 1

Auto: Jeff Hardy

Relic: Mr. Kennedy

Box 2

Auto: Lance Cade (RIP)

Relic: Mr. Kennedy (again!)

Topps 2011 WWE Champions preview

21 Mar

Another year, another Topps WWE card set. This time around it seems that Topps are going for a more standard mass market card set. There is mention of autographed cards being insterted into the set but with no odds listed it looks fairly hard to pull any of them. The only names mentioned so far are John Cena (again), Rey Mysterio (unlikely to actually sign), Edge and Natyla. With a box price of $42 so far on BlowoutCards and seemingly no guarantee of pulling an auto, this one might be a hard sell after the amazing Platinum product.
