What’s Buzz-worthy: The 1985 Topps baseball design doesn’t translate that well, but the photography and the retro design mesh here for a fun break for the basics. Collectors can expect at least three insert cards per pack, though these really feel like subset cards. … The 1987 Topps WWF design would have been a stronger look here, but perhaps that’s waiting for next time. The NXT performers are part of the base set here, which is different from past releases to include the newcomers. … The Relic in this box was one found in every 13 boxes. … The Elizabeth nWo card is her only Topps cards in its recent run for WWE — maybe there are more to come? … The WWE2K16 inserts are very striking and this box delivered more than the typical one per blaster. … A hobby box will deliver plenty more and autographs, too. The ink here includes Finn Balor, Sasha Banks, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, John Cena, Lex Luger, Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart to name a few.
