Default 2013 Topps WWE

Hello all!

I saw that 2013 Topps WWE was available for preorder and the release date is March.

2012 Topps WWE just came out in September... but I can't remember the release months of past years like 2011 or 2010. Does anyone else remember? I think its odd that they are releasing '13 so (relatively) close to '12.

... my hopeful theory... that we might get a new WWE Chrome release near the end of the year? We haven't had a WWE Chrome release since 2008 and I'm dying for a new one, especially if they use the 2013 design which I think looks great; a nice variation on the 2013 baseball design.

Thoughts? Musings? Opinions?

Is the sell sheet posted ? Haven't seen anything on 2013 WWE Topps yet. Any news on auto checklist.

It's the 2013 Topps Triple Threat set.

Yeah, I thought it was Topps' 'lower-end' yearly set like Champions or Classic, especially since Blowout's listing for it calls it "WWE Triple Threat"... but the configuration of the set definitely indicates this is the yearly flagship set... 200+ base cards, more than one hit per box, multiple parallel levels... the low-end sets never have that.

The 'other guys' have shots of the box art, and while it may be preliminary, there's no mention of 'Triple Threat' on it. Looks like a straight set... I think the Triple Threat element is just the focus of the big insert set, like last year's HOF inserts.

Instead of Chrome I would rather them release another Platinum set instead.

I hear you, Goblin. I thought Platinum had a great design and good looking autos and relics, but a refractory trumps foilboard any day...

Hell, I'd be happy with just about any premium WWE release. We're long overdue.

The autos listed on the sell sheet are pretty good . . . Heyman, Malenko, Dusty Rhodes, and Ryback. Should be a good selling product.

Retired wrestlers signed up to sign for this one include “Cowboy” Bob Orton, “The Million-dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, the Bushwhackers (Luke and Butch), Dean Malenko and Tom Prichard."

Shield triple autograph anyone?

The autograph list looks awesome in this set but for some reason I've held off on ordering my case. I'm sure in the next couple of days I'll lock it in. I'd like to see a sell sheet or some kind of update here soon.

... and with the returning Diva kiss cards and the new tri-fold Diva cards, Topps is focusing on the females way more than in past years. I guess they're finally realizing what the fans want...

Don't know if I'm doing a case, but I'm going in for at least 4 or 5 boxes.

Don't mean to keep going back to it, but if this early-in-the-year release means we might finally get a deluxe or premuim set later in the year... that's reason enough for me to celebrate!

nera20... Topps WWE Finest... now that would be sweet!

And speaking of things long-absent from WWE trading cards (like Chrome), when's the last time we had on-card autographs of wrestlers?!?

Think I will just be waiting for the autographs on Ebay. If the list pans out, would be really awesome to have a Paul Heyman and Dean Malenko autograph.
