While I don't know the card situation he did indeed have both legs amputated due to diabetes. Last I heard he was doing ok but the bills were piling up.

I noticed that the date on here now says October 26th. I wonder if they moved it up a few days from the 31st if no matter what they are finally releasing it then. Hopefully they dont leave out too many wrestlers if so.

Maybe Leaf has given up on a few of the guys ever returning their cards. I wonder if they just have to cut back on production then or if they quickly got a few new guys to sign as replacements.

Leaf has stated end of October it will get released.

Jim Neidhart is supposed to be signing his cards next week. Hart Foundation fans will be happy. Never thought they could get his cards done. Figured he would be one that got pulled. Still have to see it to believe if he evens hows up for his signing.

I don't really do wrestling cards but curious if anyone has any idea what a Scott Hall would go for? Debating on buying a box or saving the cash for one outright.. Not really digging the art on most of these but it is a cool concept and nice checklist from what I've seen.

Scott Hall's wcw auto goes for about 150-200 so less than that I would imagine. I am not sure if any signers will be SP or not.

I had no idea. I met him at a mall appearance 5 years ago. We appeared to be the only people that went to see him, was a shame. He was a very cool guy.

dd316 great photo.

Always liked Kamala and his gimmick. Can't remember who claims to have come up with the idea.

Does anyone know what the print runs will be for the various colored backgrounds - white, yellow, red, blue, and black?

From the Wikipedia page:

While acquiring a new costume in Memphis, Tennessee, Harris was asked by Jerry Lawler and Jerry Jarrett to adopt a new gimmick. Harris agreed, and, together with Lawler, created Kamala (originally spelled Kimala), drawing upon ideas for a character originally developed for Harris by The Great Mephisto.[5][6] Jarrett and Lawler decided that portraying an African wrestler would help Harris succeed, despite his limited technical wrestling ability and poor interview skills. The name came from a National Geographic Magazine article Jarrett read, about a Doctor Kimala, who was conducting research in Uganda.[5] The character was a Ugandan cannibal, with a painted face and body. He wrestled barefoot and in a loincloth.[4][7]

Thanks for sharing on the Hall photo! Would love to get my hands on the one where he's flicking the tooth pick lol, hell I'll probably shoot for all the variations.. By far my favorite wrestler of all time, shame he couldn't stay focused and sober :-/

Pretty sure white backgrounds will be the most common. Also cards do have alternate images, not sure if all do. The ink color auto variations look to be be all over the place.

Ya I can't see Kamala being a huge draw at a mall but I remember being scared of him as a kid, his feud with Taker was always fun

I guess Koko B Ware has some parrot sketches he did on some of his cards.
Leaf is getting Kamala his cards done this week through a signing at his home.
Chyna has chance of being pulled from the set. No loss for me. Really could care less about her auto in the set.

Brian gray was doing a webcast box break tonight and was talking about products that are coming out from Leaf. He did talk some about Leaf Wrestling a bit. Did say it ended up being a lot harder than he thought getting on card autos from some of these guys.
Isn't going to risk putting in redemptions of some if they don't think they will ever sign. I guess Chyna falls into the category. Said it's coming out no later than end of the month. I guess will see soon.

Looks like blowout pulled prices? wasn;t it at $70 a box before.
