2017 Topps WWE Women’s Division Blaster Box Break & Review

It has been a long time since I’ve opened a box of wrestling cards.  One of those TNA Knockouts boxes from TRISTAR is probably the last wrestling box I tackled.  New from my friends at Topps and exclusive only to Walmart is 2017 WWE Women’s Division Wrestling.

Like I said, this product can only be found at Walmart.  It comes in three different formats – Blasters, Hangers, and Fat Packs.  Blasters are most likely going to be the popular choice as each box comes with (1) “hit”.  Along with your “hit” you’ll find (80) other cards.  (40) of them will be from Matches and Moments and the remaining (40) come from the Roster portion of the base set.  Roster cards borrow the 2017 Major League Soccer design, whereas Matches and Moments uses the design from Road to WrestleMania.  Despite not guaranteeing a “hit”, Hangers and Fat Packs are the only places you can find special inserts.  The overall base set consists of (100) cards, so a few boxes should yield a complete set.  Parallels include Silver #’ed/50, Blue #’ed/25, Gold #’ed/10, and Red #’ed/1.  Unlike the Roster parallels, the Matches and Moments parallels are serial numbered on the back.  I highly recommend checking those backs as you could easily miss them while shuffling through that card brick.

The checklist is solid.  Especially when it comes to the autographs.  Topps included a wide variety of past and present wrestlers.  Blasters cost about $30.  In today’s hobby its a breath of fresh air to see an entirely female-based set.  Wrestling fans should enjoy, and for the price of a blaster its not much of a risk.

TeenyMates WWE Series 1 Collector Tin Break & Review

wweteenymatestin

The folks over at TeenyMates have seen great success with their packaged tin products.  Two years ago, they released their first tin that contained NFL wide receivers.  It was produced in small quantities, and the price shot through the roof.  Today that tin can still be found for about $50 sealed.  They’ve calmed down a bit.  At one time they were selling close to $100.

Licensing is key when it comes to these little guys.  TeenyMates tried their own line of figures called TeenyFreaks.  But I don’t think they got the response from collectors like they had hoped, because we never saw them again.

One of their newest fully licensed products deals with the WWE.  The WWE Series 1 tin comes with (4) packs of figures, display stand, and an exclusive Glow-in-the-Dark Macho Man figure.  Series 1 consists of (28) figures, plus (4) rare ones – Glow-in-the-Dark Undertaker (1:64 packs), Crystal Clear John Cena (1:128 packs), Alternate Macho Man (1:256 packs), and The Rock Metallic Gold (1:512 packs).  Judging by completed sales, the Alternate Macho Man figure seems to be the most popular.

Outside of their TeenyFreaks line, this is the only other set where each figure has to look different.  When it comes to MLB, NFL, NBA, or NHL the teams change, but the figures are basically the same.  Down the line it would be cool to see some individualized TeenyMates figures for other sports.  That probably would involve the Players Association approval though.  Professional wrestlers also have very distinct facial features which can easily be incorporated into such a tiny figure.  Other athletes might be more difficult to bring to life in such a small form since their uniforms and faces look similar.

Here is what I pulled from my tin:

  • (1) Bray Wyatt
  • (1) Sting
  • (1) Ultimate Warrior
  • (1) Stone Cold Steve Austin
  • (1) Kane
  • (1) Dean Ambrose
  • (1) Seth Rollins
  • (1) Dolph Ziggler
  • (1) Macho Man Randy Savage Glow-in-the-Dark
