Picked up two boxes today from my local shop. I think the cards are very nice looking overall. There are no insert cards in this product except for the Autos and Memorabilia cards though.

Pleased with the breakdown as well as my two boxes yielded three complete 72 card base sets and only two cards missing from a fourth set, with 42 cards left over. A little bit better than Topps's previous two WWE sets.

Autographs: Matt Hardy Metal and Randy Orton Clap
Memorabilia cards: both my cards were plain white John Cena shirts

Got a box from the local shop this evening. Really not to pleased with it,

2 Base sets w/ extras
Autograph: Viscera
Memorabilia: Rey Mysterio (all black)

I had pulled both the auto and memorabilia cards by the fourth pack.

The last three of the four boxes of Topps wrestling I've opened have been duds. The only saving grace was a Lita Superfractor from a Chrome Heritage box.

My case just arrived so I busted it. I will say that the base set is nothing to rave about, but then that was to be expected.

I got two of every Memorabilia Card with no HBK's and they are all solid colors. The cards themselves aren't very attractive and the insertion of a tiny picture of the wrestler seems like they couldn't be bothered coming up with something more creative.

I guess what everyone really wants to know is who I pulled as autographs. Well these are some very nice cards. They are done in dark tones and for some reason it reminded me of the Inkworks, Charmed the Power of Three set. I really hate to admit it, but the sticker autographs look really good on these cards. It would appear that Topps actually designed these cards with the use of stickers in mind.
I pulled:
John Cena
Edge
Eugene
Randy Orton
Golddust
Victoria x2
Maria

I'm very happy with all of my autographs except for Eugene, as I wasn't fond of his character and felt it was even low for the WWE to stoop to that level.

Found a 6 pack $10 retail box at Wal-Mart today. The packs each have 6 cards and a "coin" in them. No Autos or Memorabilia, but there are inserts cards. Foil Champions cards are 1:6 packs and foil Divas cards are 1:3.

And of course the "Collectable Coins" (1:1) which I was a little disappointed with only as they're not really styled after a coin with two flat sides, but instead more of a bottlecap style.

Anyhoo, here's what I pulled:

Foil Champions: C10 Triple H
Foil Divas: D11 Kristal, D12 Victoria
Coins: 9 of 24 Ric Flair, 14 of 24 Steve Austin, 15 of 24 Trish Stratus (x2), 21 of 24 Big Show, and 22 of 24 Booker T

Picked Up a RETAIL bonus box today.

6 packs, 6 cards & 1 coin each C
Box design B+
Wrapper design (3 variations) B+
Base set design B (pulled no dupes)
1 Championship foil C12 Hogan B-
2 Diva foils D5,D6 B+
6 Coins, 1 per pack, coin design A
Insert ratios A (As advertised)

Overall B++
Very colorful. Good mix of images. Coins are two sided, side A has a head shot, and side B has a nickname and action shot. The coins look really sharp, but they are designed more like earlier baseball coins.

I wish they would do just a legends or Classic Superstar set.

Well I bought a box today and well I was extremely disappointed.
2 sets
John Cena shirt
no autographs

I was really upset because I bought the box just to see who's autograph I would get. If anyone out there has some that they would move real cheap, like doubles you got or something, I would be very interested in buying, or I would even trade a base set for an auto.
