I am sure that DPeck and WrestlingCardKing will weigh in, but that Kajiwara Hogan card from Japan is one of the holy grails of wrestling cards. It is from 1981 (thus predating his Wrestling All Stars card). PSA has only graded four of the Hogan Kajiwara cards to date. It is a 17-card set and PSA has only graded 104 cards total. Andre the Giant also has a cool card in the set that shows him climbing over the top rope to enter the ring.

I was watching the auction on eBay. I thought things might get really crazy in the last two seconds because it is such a rare Hogan card and predates his Wrestling All Stars card. That auction had four bidders over $750 for a raw card, so wrestling collectors knew what they were looking at. The Kajiwara cards were packaged with action figures.

Here are a couple of threads that discuss the set:

Price is surprising. I think it is a play on hoping for a top PSA grade.

The price of the unopened figures has exploded (if you can even find them), and the demand and price of the cards has gone up with them.

Some of the Hulk Hogan packages seem to be missing the Hulk Hogan card, which has most likely helped create demand for the card.

Not meaning to brag, but I once bought an Andre the Giant card from the set for $1, back when there was a lack of info about Japanese wrestling card issues.

That post pretty much sums up the desirability of the Hogan Kajiwara card. When there is a Hogan card that DPeck wants and does not have, it is a desirable card.

Most of it has been said already in the thread. I own a PSA 8 and it is in my set of 1981 Popys. There is clearly demand for the card as more information about the card is now known. The fact that it is a short print from the set only adds to the intrigue in addition to the fact that you are potentially competing against another market (figure collectors). I would have predicted $1000 before the auction started regardless of the potential grade of the card. There was a part of me that wanted to bid between $800 to $1000 and have Hogan sign the card but i was on work travel and lost track of time with the auction close. While there are plenty of signed 1982 all stars, I think it would be super cool to own a signed Popy card. I do like the fact that a Japanese seller made the sale. I'm sure he will be utilizing all his resources to bring this card again to the market.

It is a mystery why the only figure from the serious that doesnít have their card on the front of every figure pack is Hogan. His Cosmos card seems to be short printed as well.

Another reason a single will bring strong money is you donít have to open a mint on the card figure.

The high selling prices of these will drive some into the market place I bet. I hope at least.
