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!

Topps 2011 WWE Champions autograph list & odds revealed

15 May

WrestlingTradingCards.com 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.

[Box Breaks #6] Two (2) boxes of WWE Platinum

2 Jan

Overall the best boxes of anything I’ve opened so far. Awesome pull by all accounts. I can see myself getting another few boxes of this!

Box 1:
Zack Ryder Auto (Blue #94/99)
Randy Orton Relic/Auto (#96/275)
Christian/Evan Bourne/R-Truth Triple Relic (#44/99)
Road Warrior Hawk #36 Magenta Printing Plate 1/1
Vladamir Kozlov Platinum Performance insert Red 1/1

Yes, TWO red 1/1 cards in the same box as a Triple Relic and a Blue /99 auto! I can’t comprehend the odds of this happening. I would have been happy with just the Orton auto/relic but they insane cards just kept coming!

Box 2:
Big Show Relic
Drew McIntyre auto (#89/271)
The Miz auto/relic (#234/275)
Paul Bearer gold relic #44/50

Topps 2010 WWE Platinum released

29 Dec

The first ever ‘high end’ WWE product was released yesterday officially though cards from the collection started to crop up around December 26th. I’ll use this post to try keep track on some eBay listings to see how prices are going. As of writing this there is currently 993 single items which include regular base cards, packs & boxes as well as the autos, relics and parallels which I’m interested in.

The most expensive single card to be sold so far is this John Cena 4clr auto/relic which is a blue parallel and so is numbered to /99, it went for $137.30.

The next few most expensive cards are Divas parallel autos such as a Kelly Kelly /25 gold auto that went for $130, a Maryse /271 base auto for $99 and another Kelly Kelly /271 base for $80. Seems if you hit a Divas auto/swatch your on to a gold mine. Creeps. Other than that the most interesting cards that are selling are from Randy Orton & CM Punk. Both wrestlers autos and auto/swatches are going for quite high prices with Orton averaging about $80 for the gold and Punk about $60 for his gold. I personally won Punks regular swatch for $15 and his base auto/swatch (numbered to /271) for $26 last night. If I intend to grab his other paralells I’ll need deep pockets.

But by far the most interesting development in the prices of the cards comes in the triple relics. These cards are three patches from different superstars which are limited to one in only every 6 boxes and are numbered to 99 each. There’s 10 different variants which rangefrom the obvious money card Edge/Triple H/John Cena to the lesser ones like Evan Bourne/Cody Rhodes/MVP. The prices have been much, much lower than I initially thought they’d be, I managed to secure a Rey Mysterio/CM Punk/The Miz triple relic for only $24 last night on Buy It Now. Some are up for as low as $25 and with a Best Offer option. I’m expecting the same thing that happened the Jumbo Swatches and auto/swatches from the 2010 collection and see the price baloon in the next few weeks. Personally once I get the CM Punk/Big Show/Edge variant for the collection I’ll be done.

I myself have spent the last few days buying up cards on eBay which will be listed here when I get them and also have two hobby boxes on their way to me. I’d have them opened and listed already if it were not for the fact there’s no postal service here until tomorrow! So hopefully I’ll get to post again with the results..
