2012 Tristar TNA Impact Wrestling TENacious Box Break

I picked up this 2012 Tristar TNA Impact Wrestling TENacious box at New York Comic Con. It should be a fun break. Each box has 20 packs and 7 “hits”.

TENacious celebrates 10 years of TNA, featuring some of the biggest stars and their biggest moments. I’ll cut to the chase. I am kind of indifferent of about the base set. It isn’t something too crazy and doesn’t really strayed from past Tristar TNA sets.

But let’s be honest, you get a box for the hits. Of the 7 hits per box 2 of them are parallels and one is a numbered short print. The parallels are AJ Styles (3/10) and Jeff Hardy (8/30) and the short print is of Ric Flair (61/100). It goes without saying these are an afterthought and thrown in to add “value” and increased the “hit” count of a box.

Some of the bigger hits are of course are of Kurt Angle, Sting, Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy and the like. Of course I pulled two Knockout autographs, Rosita (11/100) and Gail Kim (94/100). But to be honest, if I had to pull a Knockout auto, Gail Kim would be on top of the list. I have a signed photo of hers and I am probably adding this to my PC too.

So one of the 7 hits is either a celebrity cut auto of stars like Chris Rock, Toby Keith and Brian Urlacher or a TNA memorabilia card.

Beer Money Mem Card

And I pulled a memorabilia card of Beer Money (12/100) which is alright but my hits are kind of lackluster until I pulled this.

Motor City Machine Guns and Beer Money Auto

It is a quad auto of Beer Money (James Storm & Bobby Roode) and Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) numbered 94/100. I am a huge fan of the Motor City Machine Guns and the Best of 5 series of Summer 2010 is some of the best TNA tag team matches in their history. I am definitely keeping this auto and it is going straight into my little MCMG collection.

If you watch TNA or a fan of wrestling it is a fun break and you can pull some pretty awesome cards. I definitely recommend breaking a box if you can find one for cheap. Oh a random thought. Tristar really loves numbering cards. All the hits (parallels, short prints, autographs and memorabilia cards) are all numbered. The box itself is numbered (1634/1800). It may be a bit excessive and kind of ruins what makes numbered card special. But to be fair it not a problem exclusive to Tristar.
