I think An Andre the Giant 1974 Yamakatsu New Japan Pro Wrestling card is worthy of the top 5. It's the first traditional card of Andre the Giant. It was issued in Japan as part of a 40 card set. I have the card at BGS right now for grading. Ill post a scan when I get it back. Yamakatsu made several different sets. Inserted in each box was a gold foil stamped winner card. The card could be redeemed for an album. Its one of the first parallel cards I have heard of. I have never seen an Andre with the gold foil but if one ever did surface i think it would be right up there with a high grade 82 hogan.



Here is a sample of what the stamp looks like. I have never seen without an X. That was how the card was marked one it was redeemed.
