Funny about this is I was watching a few of these auctions then noticed this guy is from the same town as me (Weatherly PA) The population here is about 2000 people, small world I guess. I was gonna bid on the Piper but thatought that was alittle high priced?? Look at all this guy has..alot of lower numbered serial numbered?????

So I have a question about these - are some of the bases SPs?

Are there numbers out on the base prints...?

The base/white alternative art cards are short printed. No production numbers have been released.

Was it rumor or fact that there were 1500 cases released?

Someone do the math. I am tired and going to bed.

Nice hit on Mean Gene. Leaf did release the original sketch art of the ones that they didn't get contracts signed by the subjects. Post picture of it when you have it in hand.
I have seen HBK and Terry Funks have hit Ebay.

I think even a few of the white background regular base autos are sp. See more yellow backgrounds than base white show up.

Thank you

When I receive it, I will post a scan. I may end up keeping it due to Mean Gene never being released. Trying to go for the yellow set. I would say 75% completed. Mean Gene would go along nice with it!

Here is a calculation from a while ago:

318 cases, if the math is correct.

If all the bases are printed the same - why are the Pipers and Hall (I don't think I've ever seen these) going for 5x the prices of others...., Hell the Flairs are listed at 20x other bases....

A lot of the big name white base and even few mid tier guys like Duggan are short printed.
Not all the white background base autos are printed in the same quanity. Some are quite rare and don't show up very often. Easier finding the yellow backgrounds for some.

I think someone here finished or is close to getting a white base auto set complete.

Yeah - I just posted my list... I am going for just one of each one and one of each Poffo and KoKo... then I'll go back and pick up white base or yellow base as I see them.

The really rare sp'ed base/alt white autos are as follows:

(1) Bruno Sammartino (alternate)
(2) Scott Hall (base and even more so alternate)
(3) Roddy Piper (alternate)
(4) Ted Dibiase (base and considerably more so alternate)
(5) Hulk Hogan (base and even more so alternate)
(6) Ric Flair (base and even more so alternate)
(7) Bret Hart (base and even more so alternate)
(8) Jim Duggan (base and alternate)


I have only ever seen one Bruno alternate that I can recall.

Figured he had to break a few cases. So he had atleast 3 hot boxes broken.

I know I posted the Short print ink color variations in that massive Leaf thread that Leaf put on twitter..

sthomke do you have all different #'s on your checklist site.

No, I haven't been listing new sets for the last couple years.

WTC has a list up:

So I ordered one Poffo plate and it's somewhere in the ether... another one was delivered and I have it in possession - I missed one last night because what I had labeled on a bid was for a Severn alternate yellow and not the plate - the plate went for $22.50.

So in my attempt to get a Poffo collection I have purchased one - should have purchased the other - and actually have one now. I guess I wasn't meant to complete this collection.

What's everyone's thought on the Hogan...? Compared to what the Hall went for...

I'd have rather had the Hogan, but I didn't have 270+ to blow last night unfortunately. People are partially betting on Hall to croak, but he and Jake Roberts will outlive them all probably. Billy Graham I think has supposedly dying for nearly as long as I've been alive. He always pulls through. The guys who die are not often the ones you'd expect.

Plates 1/1 of same Hogan have sold for $160 and $104.

I think it was a pretty strong price for the black 1/1.

Has artwork original sketch 1/1 of a Hogan shown up yet. Wonder if he signed it.
