WWE 2K17 NXT Edition Includes Exclusive Topps Mat Relic Cards
By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor
If you pick up the regular version of the WWE 2K17 video game, you’re going to find a game inside and not much else. However, if you sprung for the souped up NXT Edition, there was plenty of swag that came with it including an Shinsuke Nakamura autograph and an exclusive Finn Balor figure. Topps also contributed to the promotion with a set of exclusive NXT TakeOver: London Mat cards.
The deluxe edition of the video game includes one of the mat relics. A total of 14 different wrestlers are on the checklist including Finn Balor, Bayley, Samoa Joe, Enzo Amore and Asuka.
The design is similar to the one used for similar NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn Mat relics found in 2016 Topps WWE. The logo and photos have been updated to reflect the specific event.
The 2016 Topps WWE 2K17 NXT TakeOver: London Mat cards all come serial numbered. Yellow are the most plentiful with 499 copies each. Six levels of parallels are limited to between 299 and 10 copies.
NXT TakeOver: London took place in December, 2015. The card was headlined by Finn Balor retaining the NXT Championship over Samoa Joe and Bayley holding onto the NXT Women’s Championship by beating Nia Jax.
Although the print runs may not seem very low, there’s a good chance that it won’t be long before they’re tough to find. The box set, which carried a hefty initial price tag, is sold out. It’s likely that many of those who got it will hold onto the cards along with the rest of the extras. Some are listed on eBay, but not in large numbers.
