Professional wrestling has a rich history. For many, it's a deep source of nostalgia. However, save for a small subset here and there, professional wrestling's history hasn't been covered much in the hobby yet, particular when it comes to autographs. 2012 Leaf Originals Wrestling looks to fill that void.

Boasting  five autographs per box, 2012 Leaf Originals Wrestling gives collectors the chance to go after signatures from some of the biggest stars of the last four decades. These include Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Bobby "the Brain" Heenan and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. The set also has the first autograph cards of Jake "the Snake" Roberts and Bruno Sammartino. Other icons in the set include the Iron Sheik, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall. Even Pete Rose, who had a string of Wrestlemania appearances, is in the set. In all, 2012 Leaf Originals Wrestling has 51 total signers.

The cards lend themselves to the 1948 Leaf Baseball design, with a bold, black nameplate running along the bottom. The cards opt for illustrations of the wrestlers and not photographs. All autographs are on-card. Every card in the set is signed.

Adding to the chase are several parallels, which are numbered as low as 1/1. Every wrestler in the set except Tatanka also has a rarer variation image. These also have parallels that are distinguished by the background color.

Random redemptions for original over-sized art and autographed sketch cards also appear in the product.

Although many of the wrestlers in 2012 Leaf Originals Wrestling have autographs in other sets, not to mention signed photos and memorabilia in-person appearances, this set marks the most extensive lineup for collectors all under the same umbrella.

Product Configuration: 5 cards per box
Price Point: Mid-End Wrestling Card
Target Audience: Autograph Collectors, Old School Wrestling Fans, Wrestling Card Collectors

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

User Reviews

  1. That artwork is terrible. I hope Razor, I mean “Leaf” didn’t pay someone to draw that. Maybe they got a high school art class to do it for extra credit. If there is seriously an artist who makes a living as an artist that did that then they should ashamed.

  2. Totally agree. I can’t see myself buying a box based on what’s shown – or even spending too much on singles.

  3. my only thinking as to why the artwork is so terrible is because of patents , trademarks owned by other companies ( WWE )

    if the artwork was at least halfway decent i would be all over this product because the autograph list is AMAZING

  4. pimp s***z
