Far be it from me to pull into a Wal-Mart and not go check the inventory. Turns out there were two boxes of the TriStar Prospect Plus blasters. I avoided, however, as I need just three base cards for the set and wasn't into spending 20 bucks on the blaster. I looked at some of the silly and goofy things, but wasn't about to spend $4 on something that would end up in the trash.
So I opted to try something else. Like a couple retail, $1.99 packs of WWE Heritage III!
The front of these packs offer the following:
- Bubble gum in every pack!
- Look for: Ringside Relics, Magnets or Allen and Ginter Superstars!
The gum is also different, I see. No longer will we have to worry about all of those stains on the cards as Topps has made it more fan-friendly and put it in its own packaging:
So, let's crack open these packs and see what we can come up with!
79 Pat Patterson
The first intercontinental champion, even though he was basically handed the belt!
Where's Kim Chee?
Ric Flair magnet
Apparent mojo? Whoooooooooooo! The Nature Boy! Whooooooooooooo!
67 Mickie James
35 The Miz
49 Chavo Guerrero
8 Hardcore Holly
Hell yeah, a real bad-ass. They don't call him hardcore for nothing!
71 Brian Pillman
7 of 12 - Mr. Kennedy Allen and Ginter
Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiister Kennedy! Kennedy!
41 Shelton Benjamin
75 The Freebirds
Bad Street, Atlanta, GA!
Overall thoughts: I like that Topps actually has some old-school looking cards for this set. Really king of cool. I don't buy many n0n-baseball packs, but I'd be tempted to buy a couple hobby packs of these to see what I could pull. I'm a WWE fan (well, some of it), so these are pretty wild. And as an old-school wrestling fan, seeing the stars of yesteryear is kind of cool, too.
I picked up a NASCAR pack for laughs, too. I'll open that in the next day or two and post.
