1990 Classic WWF History of WrestleMania Checklist and Details

Share:

1990 Classic WWF History of WrestleMania is an anthology set of sorts. It chronicles — to varying degrees and extents — the first six installments of pro wrestling’s biggest events.

It’s a sizable set, with 150 total cards. Virtually all of them highlight WrestleMania moments. Only the final five do not. These are more traditional profile type cards.

As far as WrestleMania highlights go, it’s the latter three that get the most attention. The first three events only take up about 20 percent of the total checklist. WrestleManias II and III were both featured in sets a few years earlier when Topps held the WWF license. However, the other three pay-per-views were still fresh when it came to mainstream wrestling cards. They each get extensive coverage.

Besides recapping the matches themselves, 1990 Classic WWF History of WrestleMania is notable for its extensive use of action images. It’s something seldom seen to this extent in a lot of wrestling card sets, even with the modern slate of several releases each year. These images dominate the card front. While there’s no caption, there is a large WrestleMania logo. White borders also frame things in.

Backs are plain as far as design goes, but there is an explanation of who’s on the front and what’s happening.

1990 Classic WWF History of WrestleMania was the second set of pro-wrestling cards from the manufacturer that year. In fact, packaging labels it as “Series II.”

Packs and Factory Sets

Cards are available in a few different forms. There are regular foil packs of 15 cards, which are actually relatively tough to find now. Blister packs of 25 cards can also be found. Finally, there’s a factory set that’s in a yellow box and has the Ultimate Warrior.

Singles are relatively easy to find. So are the factory sets. The greatest challenge is tracking down packs and blisters.

    Although a cool set, in later years I realized the execution was poor. The entire set has 150 cards, and divided by six means that each WrestleMania would have had 25 cards representing it. This also meant that *every* match would have been featured in the set, getting at least two cards devoted to it.

    Would anyone happen to know the difference between the regular issue and the trademarked issue?
