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.

– 2010 WWE Platinum Legendary Superstars insert Red 1/1 CM Punk/Terry Funk

 

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.

The Walking Dead trading card series

21 Mar

Yes, long time not posting but I had to post when I discovered that Cryptozoic (the makers of the World of Warcraft collectable card game) are moving into the trding card world with their first release,  AMC’s The Walking Dead.  I love the comic though I’m not completely enamoured with the series yet which kinda dropped off after the inital amazing episode. Anyway, if this set were to mix in the comic art with the TV series and have a solid set of signers I’d be very interested. There’s no megastars on the list so I don’t think there’ll be any hassle getting people to sign. As long as it’s nothing like the Kick-Ass signing fiasco this should be great.

Only details so far:

Release Date: Summer 2011
Base set: 72 Cards
Inserts: Two nine-card chase sets, Autographs, Memorabilia Cards
Packs: 5 cards per pack; 24 packs per box
MSRP: $3.49 pack

And keep an eye on the official site for release dates and more info: http://www.cryptozoic.com/tradingcards/walking-dead-trading-cards
