Default Large Wrestling card purchase

I have been in talks with someone from overseas about some Merlin cards that he has and I finally struck a deal with him. I purchased 4x Complete 1993 WWF Merlin sets, thats 192 cards per set. I also bought 4x complete 1995 WWF Merlin sets, thats 180 cards per set. So over 1,400 total cards. I am not yet sure what I am going to do with that many sets. I might list 1 or 2 on Ebay and see how they do in our market. I also got a lead on a guy who has a box of unopened packs of 1995 WWF Merlin cards (not the stickers). If that works out it would be an amazing find and hopefully the cards will be in grading condition.

Nice find. Should be an awsome deal if the conditions hold up.

The key cards would be great to get graded.

Usually the postage cost from Europe kills the deal on complete sets, so it is great you got those in a large bundle.

I got the cards today. For the most part the cards are NM, some are better and some are worse. Here is a sample of some of the nicer cards. I have decide to sell a few of the sets. Probably going to put on Ebay for $100 but if any Forum members want a set I will knock off a few bucks. I also did manage to get that box of close to 50 unopened packs of 1995 WWF Merlin.
