First look: 2013 Topps WWE wrestling cards

By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

The march to WrestleMania XXIX on April 7 will include cards.

Topps wrestling cards.

The lone licensee of WWE trading cards unveiled its plans for 2013 on Tuesday with 2013 Topps WWE, which is set to arrive on March 13.

Each 24-pack hobby box will include two hits — autographs or Relics — with a $1.99 suggested retail price per pack. Autographs will be found one in every other box, while there also will be Triple Relics, Diva Kiss cards (200 total) and 1/1 printing plates to be found.

The basic set will consist of 110 cards, showcasing current stars and past legends while there will be 90 Triple Threat inserts — three cards apiece for 30 stars — and 10 Diva Centerfolds cards that unfold to a larger size found one per box.

Collectors can expect to find the basic Triple Threat cards in every other pack with the insert set issued in tiers. The second Threat cards for each star will be one in every third pack, while the third will be one in eight.

There will be a Black parallel to be found as well as a Gold, while Hobby-only Silver parallels will be one per box.

Among those active on the tentative autograph checklist are Paul Heyman, Sin Cara, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Ryback, Michael Cole, Antonio Cesaro, Kaitlyn, Eve, Lilian Garcia, Alicia Fox and Rosa Mendes. Retired wrestlers signed up to sign for this one include “Cowboy” Bob Orton, “The Million-dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, the Bushwhackers (Luke and Butch), Dean Malenko and Tom Prichard.

Divas set to smooch on cards for this one will be AJ Lee, Aksana, Fox, Cameron, Eve, Kaitlyn, Layla, Naomi, Natalya and Mendes.

I’m liking the looks of this set, it offers a new look style to the wwe cards. The autograph checklist looks really good right now but as any collector knows its subject to change but i love the new additions(Ryback,Heyman. Cesaro,Bush Whackers) along with some popular names(Sin Cara,Mysterio,Orton,Bryan) I will be curious to see how the single/triple relics pan out but this set looks to be an early winner in my opinion

Since Big E. Langston has a card, does this mean we will be getting Dean Ambrose? *fingers crossed*
