Default Chris Benoit auto on Ebay

this guy has so many problems with this listing. 1st, his price is so high is comical. Also the condition of the card is clearly very poor, the corners look to be damaged badly enough to see on the photo. Finally the seller gives the worst, most uninformed and biggest crap description I might of ever seen for a WCW topps auto. He says the Benoit card is worth more than a Hogan a from the set. He also says the Mysterio auto is close to this card lol. Its people like this that only care about making a dollar and dont know crap about collecting wrestling cards. 1K for a Benoit auto, what a joke.

Sweet a Benoit auto!

I guess people just post more pics of the more rare cards than the regular ones. So to somone like me who doesn't see them very often, it's a nice change.

The best cards in the set to me are the referee cards.

Charles Robinson
Billy Silverman
Nick Patrick

I scooped those up as quickly as I could.

Well, Benoit now has two types of collectors. People who collect wrestling cards AND people who collect memorabilia from serial killers/ murders.

Might well be worth more than you think.

I sold a Benoit PSADNA 8x10 for $53 a few months ago. As a wrestler, I loved the guy but I did not want a child killer in my collection.

The Benoit cards from that set usually go for $250-300 in mint condition with a bold signature. Sometimes it can go for more, but it is not worth 1K. Just for the fact that is not his only certified auto card. (06 heritage chrome is his other auto card)

I picked up a faded auto last week at a good price.

I don't have any respect for him for what he did to his family. I might try to remove the signature completely, because I don't care to have his autograph in my collection.

That is one of the most faded autos I have seen from the set. Raven also has some bad fading on some of his cards.

It doesn't look like fading. I think someone had once tried to erase the auto.

The blank ink autos from the wcw set are the ones that have fading problems. There never seems to be a problem with the blue ink autos.

One of my Benoits is a BGS 9.5, but Ill be sending at least another 2 in very soon.

I loved him as a wrestler and that is the only reason I would own that autograph. But for what he did to his family...I wouldn't pay more than $30ish. $1000 is crazy talk

@bootan all joking aside that 9.5/10 Benoit is much closer to a 1K card. That would fetch some big dollars if you listed it. Nice stuff.

Who signed in black ink in from this set???

When blue ink autos fade and are left out in light from this set, they turn black when fading. It's just blue ink fades to blackish.

Maybe so in regards with blue turning black but I'm sure many signers used blank ink too

Some red also. I have a black in Steven regal, putski off the top of my head, I think one of my hogans is black too
