First off, the Mets have been struggling and it is hard to see them routinely losing close games. The only positive really is that the Phillies got swept.
I wanted to open something a little off the beaten path so I got 8 packs of Tristar TNA Cross the Line. I not a big wrestling fan but I watch a little here and there.
The autographs I got were a lot better than what I was expecting. Anyone who watched even a little wrestling in 90’s should recognized Sting and Kevin Nash. The Sting bat/ auto card (88/99) is especially exciting to get and I really can’t complain about the Nash auto (13/25).
This set has a gimmick which would be interesting if Tristar did it in their other products. They could have a 10-15 cards insert set where they get a couple of sport writers/ bloggers to select their favorite baseball prospect and write 3-4 sentences about that player. Right now most the writing in the back of the cards are pretty generic which most collectors don’t bother reading and if they do it usually something bad. These writers/ bloggers have established fanbases and if all goes well they would gladly advertise the product they contributed to in their sites. Although I could imagine a couple of problems putting this set together.
All in all, I am impressed with this product. The hits I got were first rate and the base set was innovative and fun.
Update: I am looking for a Motor City Machine Gun (MCMG) dual autograph and would be willing to trade the Sting or Kevin Nash autograph.
