The last Bruno 9 went for more in a straight auction but nice to see this copy last less than 24 hours on EBAY.

I have always thought that the Bruno card was undervalued and deserved more attention.

I went and checked my registry and was pleasantly surprised. I forgot if I had two or three and it's three!

The only 10 was self subbed by me so definitely a favorite.

First of all, a big thank you to the a**holes over at PhotoBucket for ruining this thread (and millions of others).

I was born in 83' and started watching WWF towards the end of that decade, however, I was too small to understand and appreciate it. That didn't start until I was around 9 years old. The first wrestler to drive me nuts was the 1-2-3 Kid. I read in a magazine that he was a Tae Kwon Do expert and I was also enrolled in martial arts classes at that time. There were many other ways I identified with him.

Now I have always been interested in wrestling cards, but have never made any moves. Unfortunately, the cards manufactured in the 90s aren't worth sh*t, so I'm not going to waste my time going after them. I am leaning towards buying the 82' Wrestling All-Stars set, especially because I want the rookie cards of Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan, but there are a few things that are bothering me: it looks to me as if these cards aren't really going anywhere price-wise. For example, the Hogan in PSA 9, which is probably the most popular wrestling card out there, has been stuck in the 2000 - 2500 range over the past few years. Compare that to PSA 9s of popular athletes from other sports; these cards have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled in value. Another issue is that most of the wrestlers featured in this set are people that I have never even heard of.

Anyhow, I will keep my eyes open and when the right time comes I'll pull the trigger.

Stormy weather today in Orlando.

Spent some time looking through my cards and wanted to know the exact amount of Andre’s I own.

18 ranging from PSA 6 to PSA 9.

Edit: No clue why the pic is posting sideways. Posting from my phone.

Thanks for checking out the thread and the comment.

The Andre card is a great one!

It pictures him winning the NWA Tri State Tag Team titles with Dusty Rhodes from the Super Dome Wrestling Spectacular Show on December 25th 1978.

Andre was really in his prime at the time.

Here is the full pic.

Here it is in a Wrestling News publication where they took their photos and used them for the trading cards sets they made.

Was glad to find this thread. For the last four years or so, I've only collected pre-war cards. Big wrestling fan and decided to try my hand at collecting some high grade first cards of wrestlers, including modern ones.

Also want to put together a fully-graded PSA 1982 and 1983 Wrestling All-Stars set. I started with a few today and somehow wound up with 16 so I went a little overboard. Bought mostly 7s and 8s but got a 9 or two.

I'd love to get an Andre the Giant and am going back and forth between his 1973 magazine cutout and one of the 1974 Yamakatsus. I personally think the cutouts aren't really cards (even the magazine calls them 'wallet-sized photos' as opposed to trading cards, which they did for the larger ones in 1981, ironically). But I am surprised at how well the cutouts have been doing and they do seem to be respected as 'cards.' I'm a little torn because I'd like Andre's first real card but, man, I'm hard-pressed to call the cutouts cards.

I got the 1973 annual Andre the Giant in a PSA 10 and I also have the 1974 Yamakatsu Andre the Giants in PSA and those are the first pack issued cards. Good luck on whatever you decide. I may be selling what you are looking at.

I just noticed your name on some of the listings on eBay - you have some really great stuff. Let me take a look at your listings and message you. The 1955 Buddy Rogers card you have is impressive.
