2019 Topps WWE Holiday Shopping Guide

WOO!!!  That’s exactly what you’re going to say upon finding out you’re getting a box of WWE cards from Topps this holiday season.  Whether you’re a set collector or high-dollar risk taker, Topps has a WWE product configured and priced for your liking.

Here are my top Topps WWE products that came out this year.  Runner-up products include 2019 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania2019 Topps WWE Raw2019 Topps WWE NXT, and 2019 Topps WWE Smackdown.  Each of those cater towards set collectors, and come with (2) hits in every Hobby box.

Dave & Adam’s Card World, Blowout Cards, Steel City Collectibles, Chicagoland Sports Cards, and Topps.com is where I’d shop.

2019 Topps WWE Money in the Bank

Wrestling fans I’m happy to announce that the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event has gotten it’s very own set.

The base set consists of 90-cards.  Parallels include Bronze (1 per pack), Green #’ed/99, Blue #’ed/50, Purple #’ed/25, Gold #’ed/10, Black #’ed/5, and Red #’ed 1/1.

A Hobby box consists of (12) packs split between two mini-boxes.  You should find (3) autographs, (1) additional autograph or relic, and (12) parallels.

Along with the Hobby box format, there is also a Retail configuration.  When browsing the card section at Walmart or Target, the Retail 2019 Topps Money in the Bank should stick out easily.  You’ll notice it comes in a tin shaped just like the Money in the Bank briefcase.  These tins have (4) packs.  Each tin has (4) parallels, and (1) autograph or relic.

I like the Money Cards.

2019 Topps WWE Undisputed

The Undisputed brand has been a collector favorite since it arrived on the scene in 2015.  It’s 2019 incarnation sure has been a blast to watch collectors open.

Packaged inside each Hobby box are (10) packs.  Inside each pack you’ll find (1) autograph or relic.  Autographs continue to be the main focus as (8) out of your (10) hits will be an autograph.

Printed on thick card stock you have a 100-card set to piece together.  Names from Raw, Smackdown, NXT, 205 Live, and WWE Legends are all part of the base set.  Parallels include Orange #’ed/99, Green #’ed/50, Blue #’ed/25, Gold #’ed/10, Purple #’ed/5, Red #’ed 1/1, and Printing Plates #’ed 1/1.

Outside of the main base set and the hits, I really enjoy the look of the Rob Schamberger Portrait inserts.  This insert set contains (10) cards.

On-card autographs is what drives this high-end brand.  Wrestlers who don’t sign that much tend to show up in here which only draws in more fans.

2019 Topps WWE Transcendent Collection

Its the most valuable wrestling product ever produced.  A single box/case can cost upwards of $13,000.  What do you get?

  • (50) Autographs
  • (1) One-of-One Autograph
  • (1) Kiss Card Autograph
  • (1) Cut Signature Card
  • (1) Sketch Card
  • (1) Autographed Replica Championship Belt

I should note that you’ll also receive (1) ticket to WrestleMania 35, and (1) WrestleMania 35 VIP Party Invitation.  Both of these events have already taken place.

On-card autographs are the huge focus here.  This is the first product ever to have Vince McMahon autographs.  Stone Cold Steve Austin makes his Topps autograph debut in here too.  Prior to Transcendent Collection, his only autograph came from 2001 Fleer WWE WrestleMania.  Each of the (50) autographs is numbered to (25) copies or less.  Parallels include Blue #’ed/15, Purple #’ed/10, Black #’ed/5, Gold #’ed 1/1, and Red #’ed 1/1.

Sketch Cards are done by artist Rob Schamberger.

Pairing a single card purchased on the secondary market with another Topps WWE box would make an excellent gift.
