Kevin Wilson Posted July 7, 2016 Share Posted July 7, 2016 I had absolutely no idea where to put this, but since it is a bit of a passion of mine I wasn't sure if I was the only one since I can't recall it ever being talked about here. I do the somewhat difficult combination of re-selling cards while collecting cards at the same time. Kinda like a drug dealer that does drugs. Usually I'll buy a few boxes of higher end wrestling or football cards, keep my personal favorites, and then sell everything else to re-coup my cost (in theory). 75% of the time or so I am able to per shipment I get, unless the best card in the box is one I keep which makes re-selling the rest for a profit difficult (I pulled an Asuka autograph in 2016 WWE Topps, which of course I kept) or I just get a bad hit box. So a lot of cool cards come across my desk but most don't stay there I am not making this thread as a way to sell the cards but most will be on Ebay. Unless its a Buffalo Bills player (shut up), Asuka, Sting, Vader... or Shawn Michaels. Or Liger. All that was an introduction to me showing off 2016 Topps WWE Undisputed! I just got my box today. Every box costs between $190 and $200 (I got it during a pre-order so only paid $180), and each box has ten hits (six autographs, two autograph relics, and two relics). Plus low serial base cards. So the boxes are expensive but pack a punch, and to me this is the best looking design all year for wrestling cards so I tend to go all out. At first I thought my box was a bust, which happens. These were my early pulls (just spoilering for the size of the pictures): Spoiler Getting two Strowman is just brutal, plus it wasted a low serial, and no one cares about Crews so an auto/relic was wasted (although it should still sell in the $20 range). The Itami is a base serial /10, so it should have some value, but no idea how much. Then in my 9th pack, and last pack with an autograph, I pulled this bad boy and the box was saved! Spoiler That should sell in the $75 to $100 range, so making a profit on the box will be a non-issue. As for what I am keeping, I got a base /99 Asuka and a base /99 Sting, so those go on my personal shelf. Spoiler So, anyone else collect sports or wrestling cards? As anyone that follows me on Twitter knows, I got about ten boxes of the 2016 Leaf Wrestling with some really rare autographs, and I famously sold a Blake Bortles card last fall for $250 which doesn't seem possible. Its a fun hobby as its like playing the lottery but with a much better chance of me 'winning' something, either a nice card for my collection or a nice card to sell for a profit.
