2018 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania Trading CardsBrand: Topps Wrestling
2018 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania helps kick off the new year in wrestling by looking back at the events that shaped the previous collecting season. In each hobby box are two hits, with at least one being signed.
This guaranteed autograph marks a change from the 2017 set, which only promised two "hits" per hobby box.
2018 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania Base / Inserts
Again tapping into various WWE and NXT events, including Raw, SmackDown Live, the 100-card base set in 2018 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania also offers top cruiserweight bouts (from WWE 205 Live) for the first time. Base parallels include Bronze (1:2 packs), Blue (#/99), Silver (#/25 - Hobby only), Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1).
There are, of course, the customary WrestleMania Roster cards to collect, and the first 10-card series of the WWE Hall of Fame Tribute insert that will ultimately total 40 wrestling icons across several 2018 sets.
2018 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania Autographs
Featuring one signed card in every hobby box, 2018 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania presents a few choices. The main Autograph set showcases a distinct fragmented background. These also come as low-numbered parallels: Bronze (#/50), Silver (#/25 - Hobby only), Gold (#/10), Red (1/1), and the one-of-one Printing Plates. Much tougher pulls, the Dual Autograph cards are limited to just 10 copies.
2018 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania Relics / Auto Relics
Occupying the remainder of the Road to WrestleMania hits, relics take several forms. Wrestler-worn Shirt Relic inserts cover WWE and NXT subjects, while WrestleMania 33 and NXT TakeOver: Orlando Mat Relic cards utilize canvas pieces from the event. In addition to Bronze (#/99 - mat relics only), Blue (#/50), Silver (#/25), Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1) parallels, there are limited Autograph versions for each.
Mixing memorabilia swatches on the same card, the Dual Relic set has both a shirt and mat relic with added Silver (#/25), Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1) parallels. Paying tribute to the WWE legend, Andre the Giant Battle Royal Commemorative Trophy cards document those who competed in the WrestleMania 33 event. These, too, offer Bronze (#/99), Blue (#/50), Silver (#/25), Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1) parallels.
Finally, the 2018 Topps WWE Road to WrestleMania checklist leaves you with a parting kiss. Kiss Cards, to be precise. Incorporating actual lip marks from notable females in the sport, there are Gold (#/10) and Red (1/1) versions for both the base and Autograph edition.
