As to the 1995 panini set I wonder who bought it. If I could have confirmed anything about this set online Id have thrown out a high offer, but putting a grand into a set blind when you can buy a 1982 sealed all stars set for that seemed crazy.

I think it was sent registered or at least I got a tracking number of sorts from the guy (though with no idea where to track it). That's a bummer about the potential month long wait especially with paypal claim restrictions and never knowing whether it will actually get here until it does. I bought some stuff from Germany once and other than show me the sets had left Germany I never again had another update with the tracking number even after they were finally left at my door. I guess the tracking number at least in Germany was absolutely useless once it left the country.

Since it seems there is no information on these cards anywhere, it might be tough to have PSA authenticate them.

That was a good score with Hogan and Warrior in the lot.

So. .... Picked up 15 packs. Only cracked 5.

All have the 1989 copyright date. So what is the market for these today ??? Value wise. Worth grading. ???? Should I crack the remaining packs ???

I'm curious as well, since I got a bunch of these in a lot I bought a while back. I don't do wrestling at all.

They might be worth grading, especially any Ultimate Warrior rookies.

Hardly any have shown up on the PSA POP report.

1989 Classic WWF Boxing/Wrestling Cards/MMA | PSA Population

As for the packs, that is a judgement call, as there are plenty of 1989 packs containing the mass produced 1990 cards.

Im going to crack the remaining packs...pretty confident they are all 1989...as they came from the same box....i'll probley go back and pick up the remaining 15 packs as well.

I'll most likely send in the Ultimate Warriors..... What other card would you suggest to send in for grading. Andre?? Hogan??? Macho Man???

The Rockers is early Shawn Michaels, but not sure the demand right now.

Andre/Hogan/Macho Man are popular, but have plenty of earlier cards.

So. Ended up picking up a total of 40 packs. Cracked them all. All packs stated 1989, and all cards pulled where also dated 1989.

I will post my break down of the break once i sort through all the cards.

Ultimate Warrior wise. pulled 35 Total. Most likley going to send off the "best" condtioned ones to be graded. With all older products...the centering was the main issue. Also noticed some particular cards in the set being less prevelant than others. I pulled 15 plus of some cards....and 1-3 of others. Who knows.

Like i said. I will post a breakdown of the rip later. Let me know if there is any particular wrestler/card you would like to see. thanks

Very nice

The 1989 cards don't come up too often.

Woah, I busted a lot of this as a little kid,so the difference is whether or not it has a copyright of 1989 or 1990 on them? I assume 1990 is worthless? Is it worth digging out next time I'm at my folks house?

I'd check them, but 1989 ones are relatively rare, and the 1990 ones were mass produced (well, 24 years ago) and had a lot of factory sets as well.

1989 is better but neither is great.

This is not the set to send in for grading. If you get a 9 you lose money and if you get a 10 you might make $8 but since it will take numerous cards to find out it is a losing proposition.

Collecting cards based on a copyright date is a bad idea if you are looking for price appreciation. The cards are identical and if they had variants it would be one thing but they are simply the same with a different date on the back.

If I had to rate this set for monetary value potential it is a 1.

The 2 sets are not exactly identical. Cards in the 1989 set have different text on the backs and the font is different, as well.

Also some of the cards have differences. For example, in 1989 card #76 is Jimmy "Mouth Of The South" Hart, while in the 1990 set, #76 is Andre The Giant. The 1989 set has card #159 Tito Santana, while the 1990 does not.

As for grading, it is true that it is a judgement call. Grading cost should be accounted for. People can lose money grading Wrestling All-Star cards (or any set for that matter) also.

The last time I tried to sell an extra "The Rockers" card in a PSA 10 with an opening bid of $9.99 it just sat there with no bids.

When sending in cards to get graded you need the ability for the value to increase significantly on some of the cards and this set just doesn't have it.

Being identical to the mass produced 1990 version absolutely destroys this set........

Why pay $50, or $30 or even let's say $20 for a card when you can find the same exact card for a penny with a copyright date of 1990 on it? I don't sub the 1989 or 1990 cards as I will let others assume the risk.

PS- I do think those Warrior cards SHOULD be great cards.

Im going to send off a few Warriors...but im not looking to make any money. Hopefully I can get a PSA 10 for my PC. Worth the risk in my book....

I think you are okay with sending in a few of your best Warriors. As stated above, the others carry a bit more risk.

I had a psa 8 warrior and couldn't sell it for 15 bucks. I think the still shot of him might get more of premium over the in action cards of him. I had a hogan PSA 9 sitting on ebay for months without any offers. I like the warrior cards from this set but I don't see much demand at all for them.
