Box Break: 2017 Topps WWE

 
It's time for one of my once in a blue moon box breaks of Wrestling. Thought I'd take a stab at getting an auto of The Undertaker or Goldberg and for $60 bucks felt it was a low risk chance. I typically get bored with these boxes since the inserts are typically bland, but hey, you never know what could be in these packs! Here's what I got

Bronze (1:2)
Leilani Kai
Terri Runnels
Charles Robinson
Mojo Rawley
Eddie Orengo
Shinsuke Nakamura
John Cone
T.J. Perkins
Greg Hamilton
Maryse
Billie Kay

Silver (1:30)
Tommaso Ciampa (#14/25)


Total Divas (1:2)

#1 (Nikki Bella)
#2 (Brie Bella)
#4 (The Bellas)
#6 (Natalya)
#7 (Nikki Bella)
#9 (Alicia Fox)
#11 (Brie Bella)
#14 (Daniel Bryan)
#16 (The Bellas)
#13 (John Cena)
#17 (Nikki Bella)
#20 (Nikki Bella)

WWE Breaking Ground (1:4)
Tyler Breeze Shares Pointers with Women's Division
Bayley
Scott Hall
Tyler Breeze Called up To Main Roster
Tyler Breeze Reflects on How Far He's Become
Baron Corbin

Stone Cold Podcast (1:4)
Triple H
Brock Lesnar
Big Show
A.J. Styles
Dean Ambrose
Edge & Christian

John Cena Tribute (1:6)
Card #11 (Wins WWE Championship in a TLC Match)
Card #13 (Defeats Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 23)
Card #18 (Cena Wins I Quit Match Over Orton)
Card #20 (Wins 2010 Raw Elimination Chamber Match for WWE Championship)

Autographs (1:50)
Leilani Kai (#65/99)

Shirt Relics Blue Parallel (1:734)
Xavier Woods (#27/50)

Overall Thoughts: Yup..so the good thing is a box should get you a complete base set (it did for me). But man, the inserts are just so bland. I mean none of them stand apart outside of the Cena tribute cards. Would it kill Topps to make SOME insert sets a little more tougher and innovative to find? Does anyone card about pulling 1:2 and 1:6 insert cards especially when the Stone Cold Podcast, Total Divas, and Breaking Ground inserts look allllll the same? Although the Xavier Woods is a super tough pull, I don't think it's worth too much and the Kai auto is cool to me as a legend, but definitely probably not the best of box breaks of this. There's just no way though I could break more than 1 box of this. It's way to boring. Once you hit your hits, there's literally nothing to look forward to. I knew what I was getting into, but this is a reason why I rarely break WWE product. Here's a look at some of the cards.

  1. I agree with you... Topps needs to chill out on cheap inserts. I miss the days of pulling an 1:288 pack insert and feeling like I hit the lottery. Heck... even a 1:24 pack refractor would be cool.

    1. Yeah..it's really that not hard..just throw out some cooler looking inserts...I mean it's WWE! It should be easy to use larger than life characters for innovative inserts!
