Tristar offers the best value for your buck, when you
pull 4 hits from a $70 box you really feel like you got something special. The
downside is that when you talk wrestling, TNA is the redheaded stepchild to
WWE, where Topps puts out a number WWE sets each year Tristar limits their TNA
products to one, maybe two, per year.
But, for the TNA collector this set is perfect. It is
limited (only 2,400 boxes being printed total), all of the autographs are
hard-signed, relics are limited (#/199 or less), parallels are very limited (#/50
or less), the newest wrestlers are included (MMA fighter King Mo and Chavo
Guerrero Jr.) and you have a solid chance of pulling big hits like printing
plates or Impact Live redemption. One of the coolest things is the TNA Impact
Live redemption cards; they can be redeemed for tickets to a live TNA event.
The base set is made up of 109-card checklist, which
includes base cards and 8 subsets. Some of the subsets include thoughts on
wrestlers by Jeff Hardy or Dixie Carter, Then & Now shows wrestlers as kids
and now and Original Art which is original sketches by TNA wrestler Sam Shaw.
If you are a TNA fan, or even a fan of old school wrestlers
like Hulk Hogan, Sting or Kurt Angle, this is an obvious purchase. There are
booklet cards that contain up to 12 autographs as well as Impact Inscription
cards that contain an autograph and an inscription by the wrestler. There are
also multi-relic cards that contain up to 4 relics.
4 Hits per box
3 Parallels & Short Prints per box
Hard Signed Autographs
Lots of autographs
It Is TNA
As far as TNA sets go, this is a solid set and I would
easily give it at least a 4 out of 5.
