The 2017 Topps WWE Heritage Wrestling checklist allows collectors to obtain the top stars of NXT, Raw, and SmackDown Live, as well as legends, in retro designs. In this case, the design inspiration comes from 1987 Topps Baseball. As part of the two guaranteed box hits for hobby, at least one is an autograph.
2017 Topps WWE Heritage Wrestling - Base / Inserts
Utilizing the familiar wood-border look of '87 Topps, the 100-card base checklist works with 24-point Heritage stock. Parallels provide a border color-fill with Bronze (1:2 packs), Blue (#/99), Silver (#/25 - Hobby only), Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1).
In addition to the continuation of the John Cena Tribute with ten more cards, 2017 Topps WWE Heritage Wrestling has a trio of standard inserts centered around SummerSlam. This includes SummerSlam All-Stars (1 per pack) for the true standouts of past and present, as well as retrospective Bizarre SummerSlam Matches (1:3 packs) and Thirty Years of SummerSlam (2 per pack) sets.
2017 Topps WWE Heritage Wrestling - Autographs / Relics
Moving to the hits, 2017 Topps WWE Heritage Wrestling is led by signed cards that are guaranteed to fall one per hobby box. Base Autograph cards largely match the base parallels with Bronze (#/99), Blue (#/50), Silver (#/25 - Hobby only), Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1) editions. There are also Dual Autograph inserts for top pairings with only ten copies for each.
Puckering up once again are the Kiss Card inserts for the notable female wrestlers. Numbered to 99, the base version is joined by Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1) relic parallels, as well as Autographed Kiss Card versions (#/25) and matching parallels.
Offering more memorabilia choices, Shirt Relic and Mat Relic cards contain wrestler-worn or event-used pieces and the Commemorative Patch cards showcase multiple manufactured designs, including NXT, Raw, SmackDown Live or WWE Legends. Mat relics get a little more specific with either Survivor Series 2016 or NXT Takeover: Toronto options. Each relic set includes Bronze (#/99), Blue (#/50), Silver (#/25 - Hobby only), Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1) parallels. The mat relics also have Autograph versions, limited to a print run of just ten.
