Mail day! 12/27/2018

Hey all! I’ve been away visiting family for the holidays and came back to two packages!

IMG_3943First up is a small lot of 20 cards from the 1983 Wrestling All Stars Series A set. I went from having none of these to having over half the set in just this package! These are also the oldest wrestling cards now in my collection. Sick!

Favorite in the set is Tiger Mask.

I was hooked on this guy ever since I saw this video :

 

From the back of the card : “Generally considered the number one junior heavyweight wrestler active in the sport today, Tiger Mask is the only wrestler in history to hold both the N.W.A. and W.W.F. Junior Heavyweight Titles concurrently. He has a very unusual ring style that combines many high-flying moves used by the majority of Mexico’s wrestlers, along with a deadly array of martial arts tactics. His true identity is one of the sport’s real great mysteries. ”

Of course we know now that the original Tiger Mask was Satoru Sayama.

On top of that, I received my Paige #/99 parallel from the 2018 Topps Heritage set. Good score!

Mail Day! 12/21/2018

Hey everyone! It’s Friday and I’ve been having some mail pile up for the week! Time to open some packages!

IMG_3926

First up is a small lot of 4 Paul Bearer cards I picked up in a cheap auction. The seller wanted $2 for all 4 and was offering free shipping. I feel 50 cents a card is just fine!

I secretly always hope sellers throw in bonus cards when it’s clear I collect a specific person, but I’m not upset when the package arrives and it is just what was listed. I suppose if it was going to be a lot of more than 4 cards they would have just made that the original listing! I guess sometimes I just get in the giving spirit when I’m shipping base cards.

Next is a 2018 Topps Heritage Mat Relic card of Charlotte Flair #/299. I’m going to slowly try to build the Mat Relic collection in 2018 Heritage. Dropped $2 plus some shipping on this one. I feel like if I’m not in a hurry to build this set I should be able to pretty affordably.

Sticking with adding to my 2018 Topps Heritage collection, getting some parallel rookie cards! Scored an Asuka Bronze Top 10 Rookie #/99 and a Bobby Roode Top 10 Rookie Auto #/50. Like the Mat Relics I too wish to complete both the Bronze and Auto Top 10 Rookie parallel set, but I imagine that one will take longer and hit my wallet a little harder.

Last up! It’s not a card, but I really dug this Shinsuke Nakamura T-shirt!

IMG_3927 That’s all the mail for today!

2018 Topps WWE Heritage – Case Break!

Coming in strong with my first post! I recently picked up a CASE of 2018 Topps WWE Heritage from a seller on eBay. This is my first ever case that I’ve purchased, so it was pretty sick opening up 12 hobby boxes. Here’s my breakdown per box! *I’m a collector of rookie cards, so my breakdown just includes the hits, and rookie cards. I assume I picked up the full base set along with the tag team stables and big legends subsets.

I also received one pack of cards that were open already. It appears there was a problem when they sealed the pack because my base Bayley card got clipped at the top. Pretty neat! I dig misprints and goofs like this.
