TNA’s New Era takes wrestling cards to new heights by chrisolds

Cue up “Sprach Zarathustra” (aka “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair‘s theme music) because that’s the greatest professional wrestling card ever made.

Without question — at least in this writer’s mind.

The Hulk Hogan-Flair-Sting-Kevin Nash autograph card above is among some of the highlights that will be found in TRISTAR‘s forthcoming TNA: The New Era professional wrestling card set.

Hogan is the biggest household name in the modern era. Flair is considered by purists to be the greatest wrestler ever. Sting is one of the most charismatic performers ever, while Nash is perhaps among some of the best big men in wrestling history.

And they’re all found on one card.

The product, which will arrive next month, reflects a new time in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling as the company has changed its face to compete with World Wrestling Entertainment in several ways.

Flair, who has appeared on only one other pack-released certified autograph — a Donruss Americana non-sport autograph released last year — will have his first autographed wrestling cards found in these packs, while new faces to TNA like Hogan, Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam also will have prominent places in the forthcoming set.

TNA: The New Era will arrive on April 28.

That quad auto is awesome

Wow! Who wouldn’t want that card? That’s nice.

So it’s NOT part of a TCG. No sale for me, then. TNA could have made Fantasy Flight Games a lot of business if they had hopped into the Universal Fighting System CCG when it was still being manufactured. TC’s aren’t my thing, so I’ll pass. Good luck to TNA, though.

The big name 4 piece auto should be pricey. Surprised to see RVD & Jeff in it so quickly. Seems like they just returned yesterday. Cards are usually 6 months outdated shots. I guess they upped the slave labor at the factory…
