What’s Buzz-worthy: This is the third edition of this high-end WWE brand and, simply put, it’s the most-colorful version. The base set shrinks here (down from 100 last year), making the Women’s Division stars only found on its own set (inserts) and all of this release’s cards have a simple array of parallels that make this one appealing to collect. This particular box’s rarest cards for the most part were not of big names so that hurts its grade some (especially given the price) but it’s still a pretty strong release. One of the biggest draws here is ink from Undertaker, though other big stars also can be found here. If you’ve been a fan of previous releases, this one should be appealing, though the super-rich blue backgrounds on the cards are definitely strong. (They look better in person than in photos/scans.) An autograph or Relic in every pack means these boxes won’t be cheap, but if you don’t have a lot of WWE autos or want to get a number of them fast it’s a fun rip.
