Default WWF Market Scene Cards 1989-90

As a New Zealander and wrestling fan these cards have always held a special place in my heart and while doing some random browsing the other day I came across a few posts on this forum. I was shocked to see mention of a second variant set of the 3rd series of these cards. As a youngster I was lucky enough to win all three sets of cards in the official binder just as the third release came out so I never bothered buying many packs of this 3rd series. The Earthquake card for example is one that I never knew existed.

In an effort to find out more about these cards I've managed to locate the owner of the company that produced them and I'm going to be doing an interview with him next week. Does anybody have any questions about these cards that they'd like answered?

Wow, someone should develop some questions. I'll try to think of some for you to ask. Thanks for the offer.

I would be interested to know how large the print run was for the sets. Basically how limited are they. Was there unopened boxes that didn't get distributed and if so where did they go? My main goal would be to find out if there are any unopened boxes or even cases floating around. Unopened boxes from any series would be a wrestling card collectors dream.

I purchased a box over a decade ago (not sure which series). I don't think I've seen another since. There is a seller that has had quite a few of the wrappers.

I'd like to know if any uncut sheets were produced.

I think this is a great set. The cards are so beat up and played with. I am curious if they encouraged kids to play with them almost like Magic The Gathering or something similar.

Here is another card from the second version of Series III.

Thanks all, I'll be sure to cover these questions off.

Just from my own observations I've got to believe that the 1990 set of Series 3 is incredibly rare. I'm keen to find out why this set was released as it seems that a number of the wrestlers were rehashed from Series 1.

That Demolition card is awesome!

Here are the two checklists. What is also interesting is that some of the backs of the cards have 89/90 and 90/90.
