I haven't seen any of these around since they were still full price. They always tempted me, but I never pulled the trigger because 24 cards(even if you're guaranteed an auto) at full price didn't seem like a good deal to me. I like wrestling cards, but not that much! In fact, the only reason I considered these was because of the possibility of the former WCW/WWE guys that signed for the checklist. I really wasn't interested in any of the main TNA guys, though I wouldn't mind pulling an AJ Styles. I immediately loaded it into the cart, but was reserved since I couldn't find any actual price sticker, only that 'New Low Price' one obscuring part of Hogan's head. We looked around the rest of the store, grabbing a few other household items and found one of the price scanners. I couldn't believe my eyes when it came up as $4.98! I definitely couldn't pass up the gamble on this box for the cost of a repack or one of those jumbo packs.
Here are a few of the guys I knew from the box. I had no idea that the Hulkster was using the old Hulkamania merch while in TNA. Wow, Hall and Waltman looked bad while they were there...
Mick Foley?!? Awww yeah! Just like I want to remember him too, wearing his red plaid vest and holding a barbed wire wrapped baseball bat. Ahhh, memories! That's the hardcore legend I know and love!
Now on to one of the newer WWE Superstars, the aforementioned AJ Styles. This comes from a time when Ric Flair was guiding him(in case you couldn't tell). Sadly, it's not the autograph.
This is. I know I could have gotten a lot worse than Abyss, but he's one of those TNA guys that I was worried about pulling back in the day. So much for my hopes of pulling a Sting, Hogan, Angle, Flair, or Styles... At least this was a super fun and semi-nostalgic break for less than the cost of an average workday lunch. I would definitely grab another one of these if I can ever find one. Thanks for reading.
