I saw those cards on EBay's last auction of the Hogan and Andre cards, almost wanted to bid on them, but the prices were 'shockin' to see. Good Luck with the contest.

Thanks for the vote!

When I first learned I was in the contest I put a post on my Facebook page about it and said I hope I win. My mom and a few others chimed in inquiring how they could show their support and vote for me. I said you have to be a PSA message board member and I had no interest in getting people to sign up just to vote and wanted to win or lose fair and square.

After a couple of weeks of seeing the Murp posts and seeing his totals rise quickly I figured I had no choice but to start a thread too on CU. Whomever the person is has started like six or seven threads on various boards looking for votes and while I would never consider doing so it is obviously his choice. Recruiting friends and family to vote seems under handed and my hope is it will back fire on him and get others like you to vote for me. Time will tell.

It obviously isn't the end of the world if my set doesn't win but in reality I don't know anyone who likes to lose and I certainly don't.

My set it truly one of a kind and houses many very low pop cards and as you mentioned the prices of many can get quite high for a 1980's set. I scanned the cards for PSA to use in their card facts site and did the digital album after as I had back scans and figured I might as well give it a try. I think the album looks great and I also did one for each of the three sets on their own.

Win lose or draw it has been fun to follow and as I type this the set is up by two votes but I will need more as I see he has recruited another friend to join to vote.

For those reading this that have voted for my set I do appreciate the support.

I really don't think I'm a douche but oh well. The people that I typically deal with on all of my other Murph collections aren't members of CU so yes I asked if they would vote but honestly I don't think any did because it is a pain to sign up... Anyway, good luck to you. I just thought it was cool to be selected.

OMG OMG. This is turning into an all at war!!! Just when Hogan thought he had Murphy under control here comes Ty Cobb running into the ring and he is wearing his spikes!!

Cobb is trying to stomp a mud hole in Hogan and just spit a huge wad of tobacco in his face!!! Hogan is realing and signals to the back for help.

Brody. OMG its Brody!!! And the wild man is running to the ring swinging his chain!!!

I love adding cards like this to my sets. I already have a few other high grade copies but purchased this as it has tremendous eye appeal. A great looking card!

Nice to see the Wrestling All Stars get some press on the PSA Twitter feed.

I picked up a nice raw set and really like the centering on this Flair.





My only raw Hogan.






Terry Funk a super tough dude. This one is nice.

Finally after over seven years of actively collecting the cards I tracked down a Mint copy of The Chrusher! The card is a real beauty and I now have every card from the 1982 A in Mint or higher grade.

Awesome card David. I remember The Crusher and other AWA stars coming to the small town I live in back in the 70's and putting on shows.

Thanks for the comment. Anytime I am going after a card I end up watching a related DVD that covers the wrestler and so last week I naturally watched the AWA one. It really was a great promotion and especially in the 70's. It must have been so exciting to see and follow as there is now a plethora of things to watch but back then the choices were so much more limited and wrestling was so great.

I picked up a few sets this week off EBAY hoping the 1982 A set was as nice as it looked. It looked strong in the scans and I did get some nice cards. Here are the better ones.

I got my 15 card submission back from PSA in the mail today. It was great to see these cards in holders. Self subbing a Brody and Flair PSA 9 was a great thrill. I really felt confident this Hogan was an 8 and it looks great slabbed. A really nice batch of additions to my collection.

It's cool to see pics of cards that are not in your face scans. I love seeing these two cards just sitting next to each other.

On my Facebook page a memory from seven years ago popped up. It was the day I got my first grades back from PSA. These all came from one sealed pack that was pristine. I planned to keep it sealed but gave in pretty quickly and glad I did.

Some hits and misses. The Bob Backlund and the Terry Funk are both in really nice condition. I thought they had a shot at a 10.

I give up sending anymore of the 1991 WCW cards in. I bet I can't get a buck for the Paul E in an 8! Haha

Cool Senna pick-up, David. Never expected to see that in this thread. The racing thread on the main board could always use some more contributors.

I just went through that thread. Nice work picking up the 1972 STP Richard Petty.

I purchased two boxes of the 1986 Panini Supersport and had no clue who Senna was. I saw a few sales a year or so ago of the sticker and thought I should check and see if I had any and if so send one in. I was really hoping to get a PSA 9 on it and was very pleased with the result.

He also has a sticker in the 1988 set and I am just waiting on a PSA special to send in the stickers I think are worth grading from the set I bought and he was one of them.

If there are any other drivers in either Panini set that you know of that might be worth something graded let me know.

Thanks for the nice words on the Petty. After not seeing any '72 Petty cards on eBay in a couple years, there have actually been three or four more 1972 Petty STP cards that have shown up on ebay since I won that one. Lorenzen with car is really the legendary rarity in that set, although Bobby Allison is tough as well. Even a couple Lorenzen with car cards have shown up on eBay in recent months after some veteran STP collectors being unable to find a single example of the card over the course of several decades. I currently own nine of the 11 cards in the '72 STP set.

The owner of the only complete '72 STP set in the PSA registry has broken up his set in recent months. I really kick myself for not putting in a bigger snipe on the Allison card when it was auctioned off a couple months ago. Like you with wrestling cards, I like collecting racing because there are only a few individual cards that sell for more than $500 (although it does make me throw up in my mouth a little bit to see some Danica Patrick autograph cards approach that figure).

I am not real familiar with other cards in the Panini set. Most of my knowledge is on the stock car sets/major cards or American open wheel sets.

Mario Andretti's rookie card from the 1969 Panini Campioni Dello Sport set may be something you would be interested in. There is both a 1969 and 1970 version of the card. Obviously, the 1969 card would be the one to pursue. Both versions also have a "regular" back and a more rare "Valida" back. The 1969 version of the card is No. 117 (the 1970 card is No. 56 in that set). A Panini 1969 Mario Andretti is not hard to find, but it can take a while to find a PSA 9 (there are six of them in the population report and no PSA 10s) at auction instead of an overpriced BIN.

I really like that 1972 Set. I wonder what would make the guy break up his set. I remember talking one night with Logan and checking out some of the more desired Nascar sets and that guy had a killer set.

I haven't gotten into the older boxing or Panini. Just the 1986 and 1988. Admittedly the reason I was asking was hoping to find a hidden treasure in my collection! I love taking something that is worthless to me and making it have value. I did see a PSA 9 of Senna sold for $125 so spending $7 bucks to see what it would grade was worth it. Not sure if my copy will garner that but certainly a good sign.

Thanks for the response.

No problem. I like the 1972 set myself. It is not as overproduced as the late 1980s MAXX sets. None of the cards are common in the '72 STP set, although some of the lesser drivers are fairly easy to find. One of the great mysteries of the '72 STP set is why there is not a David Pearson card in the set. Pearson was series champion in 1966, 1968, and 1969 and seemingly would have been an obvious choice for inclusion. In addition, the set does not include 1970 NASCAR champion Bobby Isaac.

I didn't have time earlier to expand on Senna. I know you said you weren't familiar with him. Senna is always in the conversation whenever the topic of greatest Formula One driver of all-time comes up. He is frequently ranked first on such lists and almost never outside the top three. The best way for me to describe the impact of Ayrton Senna is by saying that his death was exactly as shocking for Europeans, South Americans and international race fans as Dale Earnhardt's death was for race fans in this country. Outside North America, Formula One is king when it comes to racing.

http://f1greatestdrivers.autosport.com/?driver=1

ESPN Classic occasionally shows the 2010 British documentary titled simply "Senna." It is a fascinating film that delves into his intense rivalry/hatred for French driver Alain Prost, Senna's near-mythic stature in his native Brazil, Senna's aggressive style that won him few friends on the track and the shock of his 1994 death. Senna was 34 years old when he was killed after being hit in the head by a piece of suspension at Imola (Italy). His 41 career Formula One wins currently rank fifth all-time. He was the second winningest driver in F1 history at the time of his death (behind only Prost).

The link above describes Senna's relationship with Prost as "mutual contempt," and is an accurate characterization. Following Senna's death, Prost agreed to take a seat on the board of the charitable foundation founded by Senna shortly before his death. The foundation largely tries to improve educational opportunities in Senna's native Brazil.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senna_(film)

Little-known Austrian driver Roland Ratzenberger had died in a practice crash just one day before Senna's fatal accident. The "Senna" film shows Senna watching a replay of Ratzenberger's crash and wincing when he saw the impact. Senna expected to win the race the following day, and was leading the race at the time of his fatal crash. After Senna's death, it was revealed that he was carrying an Austrian flag with him in the cockpit that he planned to unfurl as a tribute to Ratzenberger after the race. Following the tragic weekend at Imola, F1 then went 20 years before losing another driver.

Photobucket ruined my threads.

I just tested out uploading a jpeg and I figured it out so I will be adding pics again.

I just got this Captain Redkneck this weekend. There are no 10's so far. This is my second 9.

Ken Patera was so cool. By far my favorite wrestler I met at Wrestlecon earlier this year. A nice high grade copy to add to my collection.

What do you think of the annual cards? 1973-78. Are they actually rare or do people just not care to grade them?

The 73s have a decent little following and I have the top graded set on the PSA registry.....as for the others from 1978 and 1981, they fit into supersize PSA holders so those mostly are sold by individual cards and not really for set builders.....i have sold many 73s over the years and still am selling them....

After seeing a thread on another trading card message board talking about rare cards it got me to thinking about this one.

The only card I own that is actually rare. The only known Blank Back Andre. I posted this a long time ago but since my threads were ruined by Photobucket I will post it again.

I think these cards present very well in an SGC holder. I like the handheld holder with no background that PSA uses better but for display I could see many liking this presentation more.

The Wrestling All-Stars set has officially hit the big time. LOL. There is a "Series A" complete set in the current REA auction. I can't ever remember a modern wrestling card or set in REA before.

Most of the set is raw (even the Andre). But the are some 8s and 9s among the graded cards. The Hogan is only a 7, however.

Thanks for posting! I wondered where that Moolah was.

I think it is really exciting to see a set show up in an REA auction.

The write up was really good too.

Definitely will be watching now!

At first, I thought maybe it was one of your sets. But I didn't think you had any sets that are mostly raw. Wonder what the set would bring if the Hogan was higher grade and the Andre was an 8 or even one of the 9s.

I have more ungraded Wrestling All Stars then graded. Close to 100 sets probably in total from the three series.

This is going to be interesting because Wrestling usually revolves around EBay and private sales.

This should break a thousand I would think and it will be interesting to see if the first time it debuts in a major auction brings out some new blood.

I also wonder about that. Almost my entire collection is of cards outside the big four stick and ball sports. This REA auction may be slighter lighter than normal on the non-sports side of things, but I always love checking out the amazing rarities and non-sports sets at the end of REA auctions every time.

Last year, I went hard after a Howard Hughes card from the 1938 Heinz Aviators series before eventually bowing out when the card went past $1,500. The Hughes card is a great non-sports rarity, at least among cards that don't sell for $10,000+.

There are always non-sports cards at the end of each REA auction that I am either unfamiliar with or only vaguely familiar with. One of the items at the end of the current REA auction that shocked me is the near full set of "Police Inspectors/Captains and Chiefs of the Fire Department" set from 1887. I was only vaguely familiar with that set before this auction, but the $25,000 starting bid made me do some more research on the set.

https://bid.robertedwardauctions.com...e?itemid=48556

Perhaps the Wrestling All-Stars being included in REA will make more collectors aware of the set(s).

I had a chance to look over the set a little better and it is a really nice one. Very good centering in many cases.

This is really a great thing for wrestling cards in general. REA is the big time and when you start at the top and look at the most expensive items offered they are top level hobby pieces. To be included in the mix and treated with respect is very exciting to me. I get it many wrestling cards are kind of hokey and have little long term relevance but the Wrestling All Stars are different. In recent years the interest in the sets have expanded a great deal and while there are only a few very serious collectors that go all out for the bigger cards there is plenty of interest in the more moderate priced cards and many collections have a card from the sets in it.

After being featured in the SMR and years of active message board discussions and EBAY auctions the exposure to a large number of collectors exists but it is easy to forget that there are many that do little online and so clearly there will be some fresh eyeballs on the set. I think the fact that major auctions tend to bring out big spenders should help and a grand is a rounding error relative to many items in the auction. I could see someone saying wow these are cool and throwing in some higher bids.

The set is already at the equivalent of $540 so a good start for sure. I put the break up fair value at around $1,100 or higher.

One of the great things about this set is the cards look so awesome with solid centering. I was flipping through some of my graded cards and I really am happy with these two Andre's.

Jack Brisco was a big deal in Florida in the 70's. When you watch old film you can tell he was a very tough dude.

I have higher grades but this card has terrible centering in general so I am always quick to grab any that look this good. I bought this a few months ago and a great card with tremendous eye appeal.

Obviously the set of cards in REA will not be a top draw in price but it is certainly one in page views. The set has 327 page views and the 1954 Topps Hank Aaron PSA 9 has 306.

Pretty cool to see so many eyeballs checking the set out in its first real appearance on the big stage!

Nice to see the set getting some action. It has hit my $1,100 minimum fair value estimate with a few days to go.

Very curious to see where it goes from here. I haven't placed any bids and don't know anyone who has.

The two cards I have the most of are Kerry Von Erich and Bruiser Brody. I have somewhere close to 40 copies of the Kerry card.

Centering is always tough on these so a very nice copy.

This guy never amounted to much in professional wrestling but his card is tough. There are five PSA 9's and they are in two hands. I have two and brokensoul6900 has the other three.

I sent this in knowing it would grade an 8 but did so because the front looks almost perfect and it just has a touched corner on the reverse. Not worth much but a super strong 8 and I like to collect the set for eye appeal too.

Here is a link to Jim Cornette explaining the story of Dick Slater putting Sting's in a toilet and flushing over Sting giving Slater's ex girlfriend, Dark Journey, a ride to the next town.

The clip also has the added bonus of Cornette detailing an incident in which he was "shaking like a dog shitting peach seeds" over Slater confronting him about calling the office regarding Slater booking a 30-minute draw against Cornette's Midnight Express.

Default Mid-South Wrestling All Stars

I came across a 1984 Mid-South Wrestling Calendar which had what very well could have been a cancelled second series of the 1983 Wrestling All Stars cards. Photos of 2 of the cards were used for each of the 12 months plus January 1985 for a total of 26. I scanned each of the pages and had a custom card making source make me a blank-backed set of the 26. The Calendar was produced in 1983 by Pro Wrestling Enterprises just as the Wrestling All Star cards had been previously. Here are scans of the 26 custom cards i had made up for me at my imageevent page (items 10-12):

Those look awesome!!!

I purchased quite a few of the calendars from Wrestle Prints who bought out PWE and they are obviously larger panels.

Did you get more copies printed?

I know a few collectors who have gotten them signed but these would be super cool!
