well, I guess my broke a** won the two "girls with the good personality" of the bunch, i.e. Junkyard Dog and Lethal Lex "Lugar". Need to grade them out as a PSA 4 and put in my ebay listing "NONE GRADED HIGHER"

PSA uses a reference book and can't identify the stickers at this time.

I heard back from the set registry folks today and at this time it is a no go.

Perhaps BGS can identify them.

Most 1980's prism stickers are nearly impossible to be able to identify the manufacturer. Although there are hundreds of different sets from the time period, there really is no resource for them. The WMMC set is identifiable because the company is stated on the card. Without some type of supporting material, I doubt a grading company would be willing to slab them. Maybe in time, a sales catalog or vending backing board or some type of advertisement will surface and give added credibility to the set.

The best way to get them graded is work with bgs. They are are more willing to listen to your research.. If you are able to find any advertisement or evidence of the manufacturer, year and checklist they will eventually add it to their database. Once it's in their database you can reference that to psa to get them on board. That I the rout I had to take with the Yamakatsu cards. It took about a year but the eventually made their way into psa slabs.

I'm still not sure about the others listed (same company?!?). The key design feature is the black text box. And they don't seem to be limited to a single promotion, like the AWA set. I would guess produced 1985 or 1986.




WrestlingTradingCards.com - 1985 WMMC AWA Vending Machine Prism Stickers



This checklist was added to their site today and there is a different Jimmy Garvin in the set. I remember seeing this one a few months back when some showed up. I wonder if the set is larger then 12 stickers?

This is going to be an interesting topic to follow going forward.

15 stickers, I believe.

Steve Regal, Magnum TA, and Garvin & Precious should also be listed.

Are you sure on the Magnum TA?

He was working for Jim Crockett Promotions in 1985.

I believe psa recognizes that site as a credible source. Try referencing them if you are working with psa about grading these

PSA will grade the WMMC stickers from the checklist I posted.

They won't grade the other stickers that the seller sold.

I think you may be right - it might not be part of the set.

Magnum TA participated in the AWA SuperClash PPV (a cross promotion with NWA & WCCW)

SuperClash - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I am near certain these 3 cards are part of the set, for a total of 15 total (which is the typical size of vending sticker sets)

Steve Regal, Magnum TA, and Garvin & Precious

That would be super cool if he does indeed have one.


The combined promotion known as Pro Wrestling USA was the joint venture and I think the Carnation cards were produced in conection with it. I am not positive but all of the wrestlers were apart of the shows.

I believe the Carnation cards were licensed from AWA's Major League Wrestling TV show which ran during the 1980's in Canada.

Why then would they feature NWA and AWA champions in the same set?

Good question. I would assume because AWA was a member of the NWA (National Wrestling Alliance), a governing body which sanctioned championship belts. The AWA co-promoted show with other NWA members under the Pro Wrestling USA banner.

Steve Regal, Magnum TA, and Garvin & Precious
Currently, our checklist includes the Steve Regal & Gravin and Precious stickers. If we add Magnum TA that would make for a 14 sticker card set. I would feel more comfortable in adding the Magnum TA sticker to our checklist if I could see a close up of the Magnum TA sticker showing 1985 WMMC copyright on it.

Does anybody have a clue what WMMC stands for?

The magnum ta that was at ebay auction last week (vs. ric flair) did not have a copyright listing WMMC.

The Magnum TA (vs Flair) from last week is different than the one in the WMMC set.

I've been trying to figure that out for ten years.

WMMC does show up on vintage Legion of Doom t-shirts. It appears it is either the licensor (or the licensee) of the trademarks or images of the wrestlers.

This listing shows a close-up:

Steve, so you're saying there are actually 2 different Steve Regal stickers? I mean Mr. Electricity is actually (as I'm sure you know) Steve Regal as well. I haven't seen an actual sticker that says Steve Regal on it.

Yes, there are different Steve Regal and Mr. Electricity stickers.

The Steve Regal sticker is shown in the image I uploaded earlier in the thread.
