Default Sorry wrong thread but wrestling card threads are hard to come by

What do you think of the annual cards? 1973-78. Are they actually rare or do people just not care to grade them?

The 73s have a decent little following and I have the top graded set on the PSA registry.....as for the others from 1978 and 1981, they fit into supersize PSA holders so those mostly are sold by individual cards and not really for set builders.....i have sold many 73s over the years and still am selling them....

After seeing a thread on another trading card message board talking about rare cards it got me to thinking about this one.

The only card I own that is actually rare. The only known Blank Back Andre. I posted this a long time ago but since my threads were ruined by Photobucket I will post it again.

I think these cards present very well in an SGC holder. I like the handheld holder with no background that PSA uses better but for display I could see many liking this presentation more.

The Wrestling All-Stars set has officially hit the big time. LOL. There is a "Series A" complete set in the current REA auction. I can't ever remember a modern wrestling card or set in REA before.

Most of the set is raw (even the Andre). But the are some 8s and 9s among the graded cards. The Hogan is only a 7, however.

Thanks for posting! I wondered where that Moolah was.

I think it is really exciting to see a set show up in an REA auction.

The write up was really good too.

Definitely will be watching now!

At first, I thought maybe it was one of your sets. But I didn't think you had any sets that are mostly raw. Wonder what the set would bring if the Hogan was higher grade and the Andre was an 8 or even one of the 9s.

I have more ungraded Wrestling All Stars then graded. Close to 100 sets probably in total from the three series.

This is going to be interesting because Wrestling usually revolves around EBay and private sales.

This should break a thousand I would think and it will be interesting to see if the first time it debuts in a major auction brings out some new blood.

I also wonder about that. Almost my entire collection is of cards outside the big four stick and ball sports. This REA auction may be slighter lighter than normal on the non-sports side of things, but I always love checking out the amazing rarities and non-sports sets at the end of REA auctions every time.

Last year, I went hard after a Howard Hughes card from the 1938 Heinz Aviators series before eventually bowing out when the card went past $1,500. The Hughes card is a great non-sports rarity, at least among cards that don't sell for $10,000+.

There are always non-sports cards at the end of each REA auction that I am either unfamiliar with or only vaguely familiar with. One of the items at the end of the current REA auction that shocked me is the near full set of "Police Inspectors/Captains and Chiefs of the Fire Department" set from 1887. I was only vaguely familiar with that set before this auction, but the $25,000 starting bid made me do some more research on the set.

Perhaps the Wrestling All-Stars being included in REA will make more collectors aware of the set(s).

I had a chance to look over the set a little better and it is a really nice one. Very good centering in many cases.

This is really a great thing for wrestling cards in general. REA is the big time and when you start at the top and look at the most expensive items offered they are top level hobby pieces. To be included in the mix and treated with respect is very exciting to me. I get it many wrestling cards are kind of hokey and have little long term relevance but the Wrestling All Stars are different. In recent years the interest in the sets have expanded a great deal and while there are only a few very serious collectors that go all out for the bigger cards there is plenty of interest in the more moderate priced cards and many collections have a card from the sets in it.

After being featured in the SMR and years of active message board discussions and EBAY auctions the exposure to a large number of collectors exists but it is easy to forget that there are many that do little online and so clearly there will be some fresh eyeballs on the set. I think the fact that major auctions tend to bring out big spenders should help and a grand is a rounding error relative to many items in the auction. I could see someone saying wow these are cool and throwing in some higher bids.

The set is already at the equivalent of $540 so a good start for sure. I put the break up fair value at around $1,100 or higher.
