TRISTAR released preview information on Monday for its upcoming TNA Knockouts wrestling card set that focuses on the female competitors of Total Nonstop Action wrestling.
The first women’s-only product for TNA will consist of two separate runs — 150 standard cases and 50 Knockouts Revealed cases that guarantee more hits per box and cards exclusively found only in those packs. The product is scheduled for an April 28 release.
The standard boxes will include four hits — two Signature Curves autographs, one Top Drawer memorabilia card and one parallel card serial-numbered to 40 copies or less. The autographs come with as many as four signatures per card and have four levels of parallels limited to 75 or fewer cards.
Both runs will include Lips, Leather and Lace redemption cards good for autographed baseballs that include a lipstick lip print from the Knockout. Also included in the boxes will be Knockout Kiss cards which are lip print cards that also can be found autographed.
The rarer Revealed boxes will include six hits per box — two autographed cards, one memorabilia card, one Knockout Kiss card, one parallel numbered to 50 or less and either one 1/1 press plate or an additional limited parallel card.
The Revealed boxes will include bonus cards (one per pack) that promise more revealing photos and are the only place to find press plates in the product as well as certain premium cards. (For example a six-signature card featuring Sharmell, Booker T, Kevin Nash, Kurt Angle, Sting and Scott Steiner can only be found in the Revealed boxes.
There will be 18 packs per hobby box (four cards per pack) and 24 boxes per case. For more on the product, visit TNAwrestlingcards.com.
