Default New WWE Set: 2013 Best of the WWE-October Release

Any thoughts on the new Topps WWE release? Looks similar to the recent release although there do not appear to be any Diva Kiss cards. It doesn't mention if autographs will be included in every box or every other box although Bob Backlund and Bruno Sammartino will be included in this set according to the preliminary information.

Set seems pretty typical of recent WWE sets.

Would like to see the list of 17 autograph signers.

100 dual autograph cards could be interesting, if done right.

I am guessing that is 100 TOTAL dual autographs rather than 100 different cards. The last set had triple autos, but they were all just random combinations of the guys who were already signing in that set. I don't have very high hopes for the duals for that reason. A Backlund/Sammartino would be nice though.

The dual in the article I saw on beckett blog depicted an HBK/X-Pac dual. No mention of other signature combos

I still don't understand why they don't have autos on card.. How hard would it be to have guys do a signing before/during/after a Raw episode? They're all going to be in the same place sitting around for at least some of the time.

I've been asking this for years. Topps could do a higher-end WWE set and make good $ on it. Deep on-card auto checklist of current and retired guys (ideally with inscriptions of catchphrases or meaningful matches, opponents, etc...), get some really cool pieces of memorabilia from the WWE prop warehouse to use.

A super high end set featuring on card autos from HHH, Undertaker, the Mcmahons, Brock, Austin, Rock, Punk, and other fan favorites would be amazing. It'll never happen, but I can dream. I don't think I've had interest in a WWE release for almost a decade.

Vince/Austin dual


or even do what the old WCW set did and have every member of the roster on an autographed card.

So many possibilities when it comes to duals. Austin/McMahon, HHH/HBK, Undertaker/Kane, Lesnar/Heyman, Lita/Trish, Edge/Christian... ehhh, I'm just getting excited for nothing.
