I have noticed that my LCS gets Leaf products the Friday before Blowout gets them. I wonder/hope if it'll be the case for this release too?

thepick88 10-18-2012 05:19 PM

I'v got a few different boxes coming from all different places and the dealers I bought from said they were told they were to ship on Monday 10/29.

sthoemke 10-18-2012 05:32 PM

Great lists! Surprised Bastista hasn't signed

Off the top of my head I think also: Doink the Clown, George Steele, Linda McMahon (not wrestler), Dink and most of the midget/mini wrestlers, XPac

Would love to see an Inoki auto card.

Ships Monday the 29th. Should be out in full force on Halloween!
Will be interesting what local card shops are going to sell boxes for out of the gate.

doink is in upcoming wwe heritage, steele is in this product and xpac is in an older tna product as well as one of the old comic images wwf sets as a non-pack inserted auto.

Great info on the up and coming set.

I figured out there's a Syxx-Pac TNA auto, but can't figure out the Comics Images card. How was it released, if not in a pack????

geoffyb 10-21-2012 06:39 PM

5 wrestlers in those sets kept the auto cards and handed them out at signings. they say the autos are certified on back like the normal pack inserted ones. the wrestlers are x-pac, mark henry, animal, undertaker, and terri runnels. you can find pictures of them on the wtc checklist section for those sets. i personally have only seen the runnels and animal on ebay. the runnels was only bringing about 30 a card but the only animal i saw for sale brought around 100. i can only imagine what that undertaker would bring.

sthoemke 10-21-2012 07:16 PM

OK. Found it under 1998 Superstarz. Thanks for the info. I didn't know about those.

WTC site says only the pack cards are recognized by Comic Images.

i talked to xpac a few years ago and he said he still has them, used to give them out to fans, but he had what was left still

geoffyb 10-21-2012 08:42 PM

its just like the few wcw topps autos that werent inserted into packs: flair, bulldog, booker t, mysterio, hak, duncum, and whipwreck. they arent recognized by topps as being authentic but they are recognized by collectors as being authentic.
i wonder if we could get ahold of xpac and have him send us some.

LEAF RESPONSE
Hoping to have it finalized Wednesday,... CHYNA is out (as we cannot forsee filling a redemption in any reasonable period of time)... One more name could fall out, as we had to send a legal letter to request them to honor contract (as they were paid upfront!)..

Two other fighters are remaning which will definately be included, we are just trying to avoid redemptions: Rowdy Roddy Piper and Jimmy Hart.

Hope this info helps.. BG

Sounds like its going to be mid nov with the way he worded it...

sdoug76 10-21-2012 10:48 PM

Why in the name of all that is holy would you ever pay these guys up front! Half up front half when they show. Most wpuld do it zero up front and all when they actually sign. That's dealing with wreasters 101!

pnft17 10-21-2012 10:51 PM

The way it sounds. It should ship Friday to distributers. Who then on Monday should have it in hand to send to customers to have by 31st. I guess will see soon.

Also cards will be packed out in top loaders. I like that Leaf does this.

I wonder who they paid up front and took the money and ran. Not to be heard from again. Gotta suck for Leaf on that one.

Yeah good luck with that. The guy notoriously no-shows at cons he's booked at. He could care less. I mean you've got your expenses covered plus fans wanting to throw money at you... He's like Lenny Dykstra without the jail sentence.

I thought xpac was good with the fans. Wonder if he is still tight with Triple H and HBK. Not sure if it is true, but I heard at one time Xpac and Chyna were going to get married. Talk about a made for tv show.

bout effin time

pnft17 10-22-2012 10:40 PM

Wonder what kind of prices the hot boxes will be selling for.
Will be fun seeing what gets pulled out of those.
I jope Chris at Hobby Box will be breaking cases/boxes on youtube.
Did Leaf ever say what total # of cases produced was. Has to be very limited.

geoffyb 10-22-2012 10:45 PM

im thinking about selling my hot box to help pay for the case

sdoug76 10-22-2012 11:04 PM

Whats in hot box? And hw do you know if it is a hot box?

Nevermind just read sell sheet. Sounds like could be good or really bad depending on level in hotbox.
