I am most def interested in the guys that don't have autos already like Roberts, Honky, Sid Vicious, Martel and Tatanka. But only if Martel is pictured as the Model haha

[QUOTE=kajshack;2848463]Watch Hogan's matches from New Japan in the late 80s/early 90s. I know it's cool to hate on Hogan, but to say he can't wrestle is a bit of a stretch.

To answer the previous poster's question, in terms of monetary value I'd rank them:
1. Hogan
2. Flair
3. Bret Hart
4. Jake Roberts
5. Bruno Sammartino

I could easily see Roberts being #2 or 3 on this list. He was very popular. Sheik, Abdullah, Piper, Hall, and Nash should also do well. As a matter of fact, if this is the actual checklist it is pretty strong. There is not one name on there that I would turn down.[/QUOTE]

I think the Jake Roberts is way up there also. I think he is one of those key wrestlers, and a lot of people need his autograph in their collection.

The checklist is very strong - I don't mind it one bit. That damn art is the only thing that gets me though.

and just think. if you pull a hbk redemption you get to own some of that artwork for yourself haha

Hey, whatever floats your boat. :)! I respectfully disagree to the max.

JOHNJOHNNY 06-20-2012 04:31 AM

Ok as far as resale value, what order would they go in?

pnft17 06-20-2012 09:02 AM

Hogan, Flair, Piper will all sell well. My guess is they will also be short printed. These guys probably charged most to get them done.
The checklist is strong and a lot of guys are getting their first certified autos on the market. Prices out of the gate should be good. Then the Ebay flood will hit and that will be the time to buy when prices drop. Then once flood goes away prices will climb back up.
With this stuff a sell out at Leaf. I'm sure we will see a couple more releases of old school wrestling from Leaf. It's too bad getting images rights to use is a license nightmare. But with two versions paintings of each card and different serial # versions. Sure we will see collectors trying to hunt down every variation of their guys cards. Sure the 1/1 will go crazy.

I gave you a list of ten names earlier. Are you wanting someone to rank the entire list for you?

JOHNJOHNNY 06-20-2012 12:23 PM

ok, i see it, thanks

gottagitdemjs 06-20-2012 04:34 PM

Man it would be awesome if there were inscriptions on the cards. Would love to see some of the stuff Shiekey would write on his (most of it would probably be about Hogan).

"Number one champwell Sheiky baby! Hulk Hogan have the grasshopper ****!"

I am willing to bet wrestlers like Scott Hall and Roberts go for more than Piper does. He already has 2 certified autos, neither of which brings much more than $30 if that and they are both on-card.

pnft17 06-21-2012 12:30 PM

[QUOTE=geoffyb;2846652]Valentine will have a certified auto in the upcoming topps release as well as several other first time signers on that list. where did you get that list from?[/QUOTE]

Yeah, will be interesting how prices are for the guys like Valentine that are coming out in both. Leaf will have the advantage of on card auto. Topps will have advantage of having a photo and tougher pull and much bigger collector base with brand name.

Probably right. I think a lot just going to depend on who are the tougher pulls. Does Backlund have any cert autos? He could be a real sleeper.

I was thinking that, too. Long reign as champion.

geoffyb 06-21-2012 10:41 PM

backlund's role as a heel killed it for me. he was so irritating

geoffyb 06-25-2012 03:11 PM

Vader time

Zerokruel 06-26-2012 02:32 PM

So Vader signed two different cards. I wonder if all the signers have two different cards.

thepick88 06-26-2012 03:36 PM

Hey Byron, I think they all signed 2 different ones and some possibly three. Are you getting any of these? If so maybe we can work some trades out if you can. Mason

[QUOTE=Zerokruel;2882920]So Vader signed two different cards. I wonder if all the signers have two different cards.[/QUOTE]

Yep they all signed more than one kind of card (doesn't say if there's only 2 different versions or more). Here's the sell sheet

I'm not a Sportsking fan AT ALL but I do like this idea for a product. Some of the artwork is BRUTAL (I'm looking at you Nash) but I actually love that Vader card! I'll probably pick up some singles!

Zerokruel 06-26-2012 03:50 PM

Gotcha, I missed the "alternate" images language there.

I never got a solicitation on this one - so I am probably going to stay away.

I don't normally collect anything, but I watched this WCW/WWF (I even watch Glow!) with my Pops religiously. So I will probably pick up a few of theses.

geoffyb 06-26-2012 10:55 PM

finally, a vader auto. if i pull one i will probably mark out. still waiting on an official checklist

Zoop 06-27-2012 01:10 AM

Vader looked great a few weeks ago on RAW. It's time! It's time!

pnft17 06-27-2012 12:29 PM

Love the green ink. Looks like other stack has red ink pen next to them. I bet we see a ton of ink color variations.
