Wrestling fans who are gamers probably know all about the arrival of WWE 2K18 on Friday, but there’s a collecting angle that’s part of at least one edition of the game.
It’s the (John) Cena Nuff Edition that arrives with a personally autographed print that is grouped with a piece of match-used ring mat from his record-tying 16th championship-clinching victory.
If you’re a certain age, you may remember Little Golden Books, which are beginning readers’ first licks at the literary world.
They’ve been around since the 1940s — and are still around today — but one illustrator has created a new take on these stories with a series of prints and a book that collects his past works all in one.
His name is Joey Spiotto and the Los Angeles-based artist is big on Storytime.
We don’t have all of the details yet, but one of the most-popular video games of the 1980s is getting full artistic honors with a tribute show launching tonight via a Los Angeles gallery.
The game is Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! and the locale is Gallery1988.
It’s the latest show with ties to pop culture and the sports world at the venue and this time it’s several artists taking on the battles of Little Mac — and those are items that could be in big demand from fans and collectors.
It’s a simple idea that could have big-time appeal.
The idea? Video game box covers as canvas art prints — and a selection of four iconic Nintendo video games from the 1980s can be yours now for a relatively small price via ThinkGeek.com.
Funko Pop! toys aren’t just for collectors and this unboxing video from WWE‘s Xavier Woods (aka Austin Creed aka Austin Watson) and a member of The New Day offers a closer look at things.
“It still strange that I have a Pop!” he says in the video. “Certain things you want to reach — goals and everything. And I wanted to be a wrestler on TV and I wanted to work in video games but … things I didn’t even know that I wanted in life.”

A pair of pop culture classics are getting the Funko Pop! treatment.
A total of 15 figures for cartoon icons from Scooby-Doo and video game legends of Street Fighter are on the way soon from the Lynnwood, Wash.-based company.
You may have seen a hint of him during last night’s game in one commercial’s montage, but Bo Jackson is back in the game.
Rather than say much … this is just one you need to watch. Keep reading to see two videos.
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.
