The Hit Man

 Well, not exactly another "hit" as we usually think of when it comes to the hobby, but he was "The Hit Man" - the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be.

Of course there was the whole falling out in '97 and since then his career was never really the same, but Bret was great as a wrestler in the 80s and early 90s and morphed into a great polarizing character in the mid-90s to his departure. This is the Hit Man I remember fondly - and the one they picture here.

Mojo - I still don't get you - hopefully your hometown does.

The base, again all new, and we get the big man Braun off the missing in action list as well as another Dana and another Curt card to go with the bronze versions, and Dana's Hometown Hero cards I also pulled so far.

12 Packs, 88 Cards, 613 Points.

We will end this one with another PWE - been a few of these lately. This one is coming in from TCDB member Eriqulous who isn't actually too far from me - just out in the Waterloo area. Not close enougn to bother with a connecting drive compared to a quick stamp and mail, especially under the current COVID situation, but close nonetheless.

I am always surprised when I get 1991-92 Score cards that I need - I have seen so many, but it's the differences between the English and Bilingual (these being bilingual), that is the issue. Well, less issue for me now with these additions.

The 2015-16 Fleer Showcase cards add with the one I have to give me the three pure base cards (again, "base" set cards with serial numbers...really just call them inserts).

The MVP from the same year are nice, and the Champs add to the cards I have from the one box I opened way back when. Actually, I still have a box to open which I picked up at Dave and Adam's way back in August 2019...

Maybe by this August...well, not likely with this lot of cards...maybe August 2022?

Big thanks for the PWE trade Eriqulous!


  1. Score went a little buckwild in 1991... with three different versions of their hockey product. I remember wondering which one would be the one worth collecting. I guess none ended up being rare.

  2. The Hart Foundation were my favorites back int the day. The Hit Man and The Anvil were such a great tag team!

  3. Bret was my Mom's favorite, even before the Harts won their first tag title sometime between Wrestlemania 2 and 3.

  4. I've seen 1991-92 Score a billion times but the blue-bordered bilingual issues are much less common to me. Didn't know Ken Linseman was a Leaf.
