What’s Buzz-worthy: As said in a previous break here, this first series of the 2017 Topps WWE is here with a number of cardboard newcomers via referees, NXT stars and labeled Rookie Cards of stars who are new to the top WWE ranks. Also new here are cards of a few WWE Legends who have never had cards before along with some of the biggest ink possible. This particular box over-delivered with a rarer Blue auto and one of the one-per-case photo variations along with a full set. It also included a good chunk of the three WWE Network inserts. The big ink — Undertaker and Goldberg — will be fueling the demand for this wax but there are enough other inclusions that could help fans rip into wax here pretty hard. It’s a simple release but has enough thrills to set the stage for a Series 2 release later this year.
