2011 TriStar Signature Impact Wrestling Product Review

Reviewed by Doug Cataldo

Good:While comparable to other TriStar wrestling products, this one has elements that are all its own. You'll find seven guaranteed hits per box including three autographed cards, a memorabilia card and two parallels numbered to 50 or less. Depending on the wrestler that appears on your box, inside will be a short-printed card of either Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair or Sting. There are a ton of autographs to be found from all members of the Impact Wrestling team, ranging from champions to announcers. Autograph cards are numbered to 99, 25, 5 or 1. Also, the memorabilia cards, which are numbered to 199 or less, are among the most accountable in the industry. The swatches on the card match the gear worn in the photo. There are only 2,160 serial numbered boxes of the product made.

Bad: If you're a wrestling fan, there really isn't a downside. Each box delivers a solid amount of hits and, usually, one great pull.

The Bottom Line: 2011 TriStar TNA Signature Impact Wrestling delivers some of the best value per box in the hobby. Whether you want hits from the greatest grapplers of all-time like Flair, Hogan, Angle, Sting or RVD, the new generation of stars including Eric Young, Kendrick, Gunner, Murphy and Magnus or the smoking-hot Knockouts such as Velvet Sky, Mickie James, Tara, Winter and Miss Tessmacher, you have a three chances at scoring big . While she is no longer with the company you will even find autographs from the enigma known as Chyna.

Staff Rating:
4.5 / 5.0

Card Design: 4.0/5.0

Signature Impact has a simple design featuring a blue border, a bold white font that's easy to read and brilliant color photos. The autographed cards have a glitter element added to them, a trait that has been carried over from previous TNA releases. They have come a long way from the initial TNA Impact product. They have yet to use any hobby gimmicks on the TNA cards, preferring to let the images do the talking. They could step it up a notch with a more creative design and different paper stocks in the future.

Checklist: 4.5/5.0

You couldn't ask for a better checklist from the Impact roster. You've got household names, upcoming stars and the best lineup of female wrestlers to ever appear in a wrestling card collection. Additionally, the autographs and memorabilia options have never been better in a TNA set. Each box guarantees a multi-autograph and you might find one with up to eight signatures on a single card. The only names missing from the signature list are Devon and Bully Ray, better known as Team 3D.

Value: 4.5/5.0

Simply put, the TriStar TNA cards are gaining momentum with each release. Several of the autographs of the legendary Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair have fetched big numbers on eBay and the trend will continue here with even more signatures per card and more big-name stars such as Matt and Jeff Hardy, Mickie James. There is even a one-of-one cut signature of the recently departed “Macho Man" Randy Savage. Seven out of 20 packs have hits or inserts, including some incredible money cards.

The Fun Factor: 5.0/5.0

If you're an Impact Wrestling fan, expect to be blown away by this one. Each pack has a great assortment of wrestlers and relives many of their greatest moments inside the squared circle with the company. Signature Impact sports a solid design, great checklist and so many guaranteed hits, all for around $80. If you got in on the National Sports Collectors Convention Championship Package, you not only got the box of cards, but an additional TNA autographed card, a special OBAK TNA set and the opportunity to meet Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Mr. Anderson and Tara, take a photo with them and get all of their autographs. It was a once-in-a-lifetime deal that will hopefully be duplicated next year with a new group of wrestlers. That experience redefined fun.

User Rating:

Although TNA Wrestling might not get nearly the ratings that WWE does, their wrestling card sets are some of the best ever made. The mix of professional wrestling legends and TriStar's focus on limited autographs have made each of the company's TNA releases a reasonably priced box break. The trend continues with the extremely limited TNA Signature Impact Wrestling. A total of 90 24-box cases will be made. Each case guarantees to include autographs from all-time greats Hulk Hogan and either Sting or Ric Flair.

Estimated Release Date: 8/3/11
Product Configuration: 20 packs per box, six cards per pack

  1. This by far is the best product put out from Tristar with the TNA brand. I was able to purchase a half case of this product and have been more then thrilled with the results. Some of the best pulls i got was a ric flair autograph numbered to 25, a jeff jarrett/karen jarrett/kurt angle autograph numbered to 5 and a Sting memorabilia card numbered to 25 just to name a few but got some much more! You really can’t beat the price for the product and the value you get in reture. A lot of the wrestling products today are hit or miss in my opinion but the Signature Impact leaves no doubt of the incredible excitement of opening this product! You will not be disappointed!
