I love this card

Before I get to cards - sad whenever a legend passes, and sad that Frank Robinson passed away. A great guy and the last manager of the Montreal Expos. He played before I was born, so didn't get to enjoy that part of his career - but he was a great all around. One of the good guys who will be missed in the sport, and also in life - RIP.

Always hard to go from such a somber tone...

Sometimes cards capture moments you felt were epic when they happened. One of these that comes from mind in baseball was the bat flip by Joey Bats a couple years ago. Well, here is a wrestling one...

This was such an awesome "F U" laugh between the two. It was totally in character, and I am sure planned, but so well played, I remember laughing excitedly when it happened - happy to think Tajker would beat the Beast. I didn't know this card existed, so glad to find out when I get one in hand!

Great on the inserts in this one with, the king of Wrestlemania, the Undertaker, a bronze parallel, and the John Cena inspired Immortal character as well.

With that - the blaster is done.

9 pack, 63 cards, 203 points.

So, with another box done - this one at 3.2222 - let's see the standing so far...
1) 2015-16 Upper Deck Portfolio 3.6067
2) 2016 Topps WWE Road To Wrestlemania 1 3.2222
3) 2016 Topps WWE Then Now Forever 1 3.0317

Again, checking in with the gut and....yeah, this still feels about right for how they turns out, so a thumbs up for this system so far.
