Hak kept his and signed them at shows. Whipwreck is the one who supposedly threw them away after being fired by wcw.

I have a whipreck PSA graded card, but I think they only certified the auto (really dont know how PSA works), I have been told Beckett will not grade any of the unreleased cards, which is a shame because i would like to get some of mine graded.

I have 39 different signed wrestling all stars going on ebay right now. I sold out of a few guys but have a lot left and some that I will send to PSA DNA. I can't send them all in or it would break me!

Send them in! It will be well worth it to get them authenicated.

I am going to, I have a stack of over 50 to send in to PSA DNA. Easy to say send them in when they are $25 a pop without a special. These are cards that will not improve my current sets of signed all stars so they are available to everyone else.

Mikey said he had a few left for sale on Facebook like a year or two ago so I don't think he threw them all away.

Would not surprise me in the least. This set remains a mystery a lot of the time. Easily the most valuable set that needs no grade.

I sent in a half dozen 1982 A's for PSA/DNA. They haven't logged yet but PSA has them now. Hope I get loggage here soon as things may take a while with the national approaching here soon. I was hoping to get poppage prior but that is looking like a long shot.

My Steve Austin graded a PSA 6 EX-MT.










This is such a great card. I am working on finding a higher graded example but this will do for now. After buying a set in the magazine it is even more clear how tough this card will be in high grade.

Looks way better than a 6.

Not sure if that is a print line through Austin's arm bringing it down a few grades.

I think this is another card from the 90's that is awesome! The 1991 Merlin Undertaker. This is the English version. I am looking to upgrade this card too if possible.

anyone else see that British Bulldog WCW topps auto card on Ebay? The price is up to $1700.00. I was planning on bidding on it, I do need it for my set and how often does that card come for sale? Its going to be a dog fight, thats for sure.

Are you guys familiar with this person? A quick check of the feedback shows no wrestling cards sold and no recent purchases to evaluate.

I like this card because it doesn't say "stunning Steve" which most of his early cards do. I just picked up a 91 Cromy set which contains stunning Steve's first card. It's not a very cool looking card IMO. I'm torn as to which one I want to use as his rookie. I think you can make arguments for either. Ill have to wait to see how the Cromy looks slabbed before deciding.

They might be someone who picked those cards up in the early 2000's when people didn't realize they were rare. In their description they don't mention the rarity at all just who the wrestler is. I have not seen a Bulldog card in a while so it is pretty rare. It has even gone higher than the booker t card.

Seems strange someone with low feedback would have 2 of the rarestest cards, and doesn't appear to be a wrestling card collector. Seller is about 15 miles from Topps headquarters. Always possible they have more.

Look further back in their feedback and there are some very high end lots of autos, all from Topps entertainment products. Obviously, the person did not know to sell the high profile cards one by one to maximize sales...and there are no sales of other cards from the same sets that they have high end stuff from.

The bulldog was never sent back to topps so I would say a topps employee is probably not the answer. most of the really rare ones I have owned came from people who I had never got wrestling cards from before. I can say if you want either of those cards be very prepared to pay a lot. 1. Many collectors need both of those cards and 2. They are in my opinion being shilled. I tested it out by placing bids of 1000 on each. I was outbid on the bulldog the next day but not the booker t by the same bidder. The booker t bid was placed 5 mins after I had been outbid on the bulldog and was 1 penny under my max bid. I then placed a higher bid on bulldog and was immediately outbid 5 mins later. Rinse and repeat it kept happening until I changed my bid pattern. 1700 is the shillers max bid. I do know someone who spoke to the seller before they went on ebay and he was expecting 3500 for the bulldog so I imagine he will not be selling for under that amount. I was also told that the seller has a few other really rare ones. I had heard that they were going to go up for sale a while back but figured it was a rumor that I had heard many times over the years. People have been collecting this set since it came out which is about 15 years ago. Many completed it early on which is probably why you dont see their ebay name as a recognizable wrestling card seller or buyer from the last few years.

Explosive finishes.
