The newest Topps WWE cards arrived on Friday with a crop of new signers and some surprises in 2015 Topps Heritage that we’ve already covered here on The Buzz.
But now the real potential surprises can be seen.
You know, seeing those first-time autographs on the secondary market for the first time — the kinds of moments that generate can just as much excitement for collectors as WrestleMania but without ringside seats (or any Michael Cole commentary).
Topps released the final checklist for 2015 Topps Heritage WWE on Wednesday and there’s one inclusion that might be buzz-worthy on the morning that fans around the world started buying WrestleMania tickets for next April in Dallas.
It’s the nWo — the anti-establishment faction that changed the wrestling world in the 1990s when good guy Hulk Hogan shed his yellow and red in favor of black and bad-guy “Hollywood” status. Could they be back at ‘Mania? It’s a compelling thought considering the checklist includes an autograph set focusing solely on the group.
Collectors aiming to collect a master set of 2015 Topps Heritage WWE will get a head start on the release with the arrival of the newest WWE video game on Tuesday.
Every copy of WWE 2K16 for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will include a Heritage card of WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, according to the @WWEGames Twitter account. There will be two versions of the card — one with a white border and one with a blue border for the set that uses the memorable 1985 Topps baseball design.
