Default First look: 2011 Topps WWE Classics cards

First look: 2011 Topps WWE Classics cards

August 23, 2011 at 3:25 PM



By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

Topps unveiled its newest WWE trading card line on Tuesday, 2011 WWE Classics, a line that will be an all-foil series including an insert set dedicated solely to the forthcoming WrestleMania clash between John Cena and The Rock.

Scheduled to arrive in mid-December, Classics will consist of 90 base cards of Superstars, Legends and Divas, each found with gold parallels. The base set’s design is one that was tested in Topps’ 2011 Target baseball value boxes as Chrome bonus cards.

Here, we’ve traded The Mick for The Miz and gone with foilboard.

There will be a 10-card Cena-Rock insert set, meanwhile the autograph and Relic checklists — 16 cards for each — are all TBDs at this time. There will be 24 packs per box and eight boxes per case when Classics arrives in hobby shops.

See more images from the set … after the jump.

They look like the bonus refractors I pulled from Topps Baseball Value packs at Target.

What is classic at all about this? Design is modern, and they dont even advertise any legends in the article. Ill be staying away from this.

Unless you mention advertise by name, in which case you're right and it's kinda stupid of them not to given the name of the set.

This looks like another joke set like Insider and Champions. I have a case of 2011 WWE coming next month but after that I might have to quit with the WWE cards until they come out with something good. When I see "Classics" I don't see Swagger and Kelly Kelly, I see Iron Shiek, The Rockers, Ultimate Warrior, Honky Tonk Man, Jake the Snake, Andre! Let's do a set with some balls for once. I'm sick of the same autos and shirt cards from Cena, Orton, Kofi, etc...

I'll disagree based on the limited information given so far. 16 autos and 16 relics, so odds are that there will be 1 of each per box (2 hits). There are also gold parallels mentioned and pictured, and 1 insert set mentioned so far. It also says they are all foil cards, so it should be similar to the 2010 Platinum release as far as looks. If there are more parallel colors and at least 1 more insert set, then this release will far out-shadow the Champions release. Not saying that this will be a spectacular release or anything, just that Champions was such an epic fail that based on the limited info given so far, this will be better than that.

Jack Thwagger as an autograph? Checklist should be Cena, Punk, Orton, Miz, Undertaker, HHH, Jericho, Batista, Rock, Ryder, and then 6 others

lol @ thwagger

i can never take the dude seriously when he gets on the mic. I would still take an auto of him since he doesn't have one yet. this set will probably be a solid release and will sell out just like the rest of the wwe products do, with the exception of champions. also, not sure how someone can compare insider to champions. Insider has an auto and a relic per box whereas champions was an auto per case...not even close. As long as there is an auto in every box i will buy a case of this stuff. cases will be $300-350 per case and that is super cheap to bust 8 boxes imo.
