The TNA Wrestling card news from Monday had plenty of impact, but here’s more.
TRISTAR‘s upcoming TNA: The New Era set won’t just be packing the greatest wrestling card ever made, but it will be packing plenty more where that came from.
There will be two autographs and one memorabilia card per 20-pack box with one parallel card and two Obak cards also along for the ride, but the real highlights will be the autograph and memorabilia cards that can be found.
The product will include the first wrestling cards signed by “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair and several signed cards for Hulk Hogan, who appears on more than 30 different cards in the product.
There will be a Hogan-Flair dual, a Hogan-Sting dual, a Hogan-Dixie Carter dual, a Hogan-Mick Foley dual, a Hogan-Kevin Nash dual …get the picture?
There also will be variation autographs with differing photos as well as autographed memorabilia cards and multiple-piece memorabilia cards, too. The memorabilia checklists are small, but there will be autographed memorabilia cards for Hogan, Flair, Sting, Foley and more.
And even the standard autograph checklist has plenty of first-time signers — Lacey Von Erich (the daughter of Texas wrestling icon Kerry Von Erich), Brian Knobs, Jerry Sags and even controversial radio host Bubba The Love Sponge, who has had a small — and controversial — role in TNA.
As with other TRISTAR hobby runs, the product will be somewhat limited. There will be only 100 cases created, with each box serial-numbered. You can read more about the product — and get checklists — by clicking here.
