Sold some stuff on Ebay last week and had some Paypal to use to buy some boxes. I wanted Free Shipping so added this to my cart. Figured at $35 wouldn't be too bad of a break. Here's the results

NWO Tribute
Miss Elizabeth
Bret Hart
Big Bubba Rogers
Scott Hall

Black Border Parallel
Booker T
Papa Shango

Silver Border Parallel
Finn Balor

WWE 2K16
Stone Cold Steve Austin (Cards 1 and 8 though both have the same exact picture)
Daniel Bryan
Wade Barrett
Paul Heyman

Shirt Relic

Jimmy Uso

Printing Plate

Sheamus Cyan Printing Plate #1/1

Overall Thoughts: Well...I just haven't had good luck with Wrestling products. This is my 3rd box and none of the pulls have been that great. Luckily this was a low price gamble so I'm not too upset. I like the 1985 Topps Baseball design used. There are 3 inserts that you get 1 per pack (wasn't gonna list them all because you get 72 cards of them) the Then & Now set, which has a pic of a WWE Superstar in their early days and current, Rookie Of The Year (I like this insert set) which starting from 1983 picks a standout "rookie" for the WWE that year, and NXT Callups, which just seems like an Alumni set for wrestlers who started in NXT. The only other inserts besides the Parallels are the NWO Tribute set. Again, I wish there were harder to find different inserts, only the parallels can be tough, but I've come to accept that's how WWE Topps Products work. I did pull a Finn Balor Silver Parallel (silvers are 1 per box) so not a bad guy to pull as the first ever WWE Universal Champion. My hits were bla, a Sheamus 1/1 Printing Plate (3rd ever 1/1 pull but two of them have been printing plates) and Jimmy Uso Relic card. Don't like that the Printing Plate counts as a "hit/relic", but oh well. All in all, fun at the very least. Here's pics of some of the cards!
