Sting makes WWE card debut — with even more to be found in Walmart packs
By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
Sting has his first WWE trading cards with the arrival of 2015 Topps WWE this week, but collectors will find even more for the wrestling icon if they shop around.
Like at Walmart.
Collectors who rip into jumbo packs of the product found at Walmart will have a shot at an autographed cards found only in those packs. An autographed Relic will be found only in retail blaster boxes, while a standard Relic will only be found in blasters sold at Walmarts.
The storylines that will lead long-time wrestling star, aka Steve Borden, into his first match with WWE have yet to be written, but he’s got plenty of non-WWE appearances over the years as he has held countless championships and picked up countless more honors in a highly decorated career with the NWA, WCW and TNA.
He’s appeared on 810 cards and other items in the Beckett.com database with 327 certified autos and 149 memorabilia cards in the mix with a total value of more than $6,400 excluding rarities.
In addition to the autographs and Relics, there will be a 10-card Sting Tribute set with the first five cards found in jumbo packs and the second five found only in blaster boxes.
