First Look: 2015 Topps Heritage WWE
By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
World Wrestling Entertainment is turning back the clock for the next release with the return of Topps Heritage wrestling cards in November.
When 2015 Topps Heritage WWE arrives on Nov. 11, it will showcase the 1985 Topps baseball design with the stars of the squared circle. There will be two hits per box and a $3.49 suggested retail price per hobby pack.
The basic set will consist of 110 cards showcasing stars of the past and present with Superstars, Divas, NXT talents and WWE Legends found. After that, there will be a 30-card Rookie of the Year set, a 30-card NXT Called Up set, a 30-card Then & Now insert set and a 10-card Hulk Hogan Tribute installment.
The basic cards have four types of parallels — Black (one in six packs), Silver (one per box), Gold (/10) and 1/1 Red. There also will be printing plates for all cards in the product.
Autographs will use the 1985 design in a new way with past and present stars signing with Silver parallels. Autographs will be signed on-card for this one and will be limited to no more than 215 copies.
Relics will include shirt and Money in The Bank ring mats and turnbuckles. Among those with Relics in this one will include Kevin Owens, Finn Balor, Neville and Kalisto among others along with a bandana Relic of Luke Harper. Relics will have Black (/50), Gold (/10) and 1/1 Red parallels. The shirt Relics will be the most plentiful with 300 made, while turnbuckles will be limited to 25.
A preliminary checklist was not released.
