Continuing the WWE Wrestlemania celebration I return with a pack of WWE cards that is new to me. Since I was out of the trading card hobby until late 2009 I missed out on a lot of the earlier wrestling sets that Topps offered up. This again was a 99 cent pack from the discount box at Target. I'm feeling a little better about this pack though so let's see what's inside.
#61 Joey Styles
Former ECW announcer. I never watched much of ECW so I can't really comment much here other than I have no idea where he is now.
#59 Matt Striker
Ah, the sweater vest guy! I rarely remember seeing him in the ring. He is currently one of the commentators on the Smackdown brand.
#53 CM Punk
CM Punk from his less annoying days. I'm not 100% certain, but that guy's he is beating up looks a lot like that D'Angelo Deniro "Pope" guy currently on TNA.
#75 Bobby Lashley vs. Umaga
I always thought Lashley was a beast. The back of the card details the match between these two guys stating that Lashley won and Vince McMahon lost his hair as a result.
#72 John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels
I guess it wouldn't be a WWE pack without getting a card of John Cena. At least the photography is rather good. I wonder if the STF submission hold really hurts that much?
#69 Undertaker vs. Batista
This match apparently happened at Wrestlemania 23. Of course we all know who won that match since the Undertaker is going into tonight's match against Triple H with the all time Wrestlemania record of 18-0.
Another current TNA employee. Tazz was a pretty good commentator during his WWE days.
I like these cards. I'm not always a huge fan of a lot of foil on the front of cards, especially gold. The foil design however is very minimal and doesn't distract from the photography. I believe this is a 90 card set and the wrapper says tattoos can be found 1:4 packs and lenticular motion cards are 1:8 packs. Those I might have to search out.
