Default Why is Leaf taking so long to post Wrestling SP List

Leaf Tweeted the other day they were releasing the Originals of Wresling SP list to be prepared and its been a few days...why would they do this then still have time to tweet and say sorry releasing Thursday, and never release it...I get it they want to drive sales for a product that people were buying up but all this SP list does it make me think they held back certain cards and are taking time to figure the numbers on what they actually released. Sorry for the vent...

I saw that too and wonder the same thing. I got 3 more boxes I'm breaking this evening so I'm hoping for a Hogan, Flair, Hall or Hitman. I got about 90 autos so far from this set and will be over 100 be the end of the weekend. From what I can figure so far there are some cards that I havent seen red or green inks from and some that I have seen alot. I'm guessing some of the ink SP's are Backlund, Hogan, Flair, Bret Hart, Hall, etc..Some of the higher numbered inks are Koko, Wendi Richter, Kamala, Billy Graham, Janetty.

Nice to see list. Some are rarer than I thought.
Wonder if Leaf kept any numbers on inscriptions.
Some look to be very sp.

Wanted to let everyone know that, after too much time, I finally got my Leaf Wrestling scanned in. Below is the link to the photobucket pages for the red and green variants (28 total):

I would be willing to trade some of my dupes for other ink variants I do not have

Doubt they ever will. No one really ever releases base auto print runs. Some are sp though.

superstar graham def sp. Who do you think are the other white background sps (would think Hall, Hart and Hogan would be on that list as well). FWIW, have not seen many white background Million Dollar Man with Alt Art
