On the ECW card, they used B. Mahoney.

I really like the fact that some of the ECW guys are in the set, however I hope we get some other guys outside of ECW that are not repeats from the last set.

Several of these ECW guys already have autos out there, which sort causes the idea to lose a little bit of its luster.

The top 3 I'm hoping to see is Mike Tyson in the Pete Rose slot, Lita in the female slot and The Ultimate Warrior in the "can't believe he finally signed another auto/Scott Hall" slot.

I agree, Ultimate Warrior would be incredible for this set

The art looks a lot better than the first series so I think that would really increase the desire for a Warrior auto. And considering that he owns the right to his name it would make it that much nicer of a card. Also Raven from ECW would be great.

Raven's Flock from WCW would be great (Lodi, Sickboy, etc).

I can't remember who did last years group break but I would love to be involved in another one this year with this new list of wrestlers...

Hey Guys,

Thank you all so much for the interest on the L2Wrestling card set and for your overall support of my artwork.

While I can't say much about the wrestling characters being painted now (on a daily basis until completion), I can say that I am doing my best to help create a great product for Leaf and a card set that ultimately collectors will enjoy for years to come.

Stay tuned as there will be more to follow.

Regards,
Steve Stanley

Welcome to site. I know a lot of wrestling collectors are looking forward to this release. Looks great from little peek we have seen so far.

Steve

How far along are you on the cards. Is Leaf still working on getting more guys in the set. Or you not allowed to release any scoop. I hope they release your original art cards as redemptions like they did in last set.

I second that on the sketches. The artwork looks really good, I would love to get my hands on the Funk sketch. I don't know how much I will get into the next set as I went overboard on the last, but I am definitely looking forward to the release. Nice job on the stuff that we got a little preview on so far.

Is this going to be a 2013 release? The last set took a long time to get signed. If the artwork is still being completed that would lead me to believe that it wouldn't be ready to ship until the spring at the earliest.

I heard that this wont be released until early spring around March. I hope that's not the case but remember how long the first set was delayed over and over and over. I don't see why this would be any different.

Leaf has never set a release date. I hope they don't so we don't have to hear any crying if it gets delayed. Spring/ summer next year would be fine. It's not like it's a season sports cards release. Leaf takes the time to get them on card and people still bitch and moan about it taking time.

I was actually impressed that the first release only have 2 wrestler redemptions. Piper is a big name but at least it wasn't Flair, Hogan or Bret. And Leaf actually sent you a Piper card instead of UD and Topps sending you a card of "equal value". That is one of the main reasons I stopped collecting the big 3 (FB BsktB BB) redemptions have become the card of death. So I say that to say, I don't mind a Spring 2014 release, as long as its similar in bang for your buck as the 1st series was.

I'd like to see some unsigned base type versions with different colored backgrounds and serial #. Have rainbows for unsigned as well. Maybe even have artist proof versions of each card serial /10 or something just signed by Steve.

Will the serial #ing correspond with background colors from Series 1?
No serial - white
/99,/50,/25 - Yellow
/25,/10 - Blue
Etc..

I think it's been said - but dual autos - stables or tag teams would be awesome....

Maybe Steve Stanley will drop in and give us an update on how the sketches are coming along. Would be cool to see a couple more samples.

Doubtful as he hasn't signed in since his initial posts and Leaf is so tight lipped on the project.. Love the optomism though and more so the thought of some more teaser pics!

Lol! Keep the faith guys. I'm more of a troll than you think and as soon as I get any sort of approval(s) I will post images here and or let you all know.

Lastly, the wrestling illustrations are moving along at a *nice* pace, even with the mountain of work I have on my plate right now. Stay tuned!

Thanks!
Steve
