First look: 2010 Topps WWE Platinum by Chris Olds

Topps‘ latest WWE wresting card set will have a bit more high-end feel — but with a “vintage” read on the card backs.

The lone licensee of WWE trading cards revealed on Wednesday its plans for 2010 Topps WWE Platinum, which will include one autographed Relic card, one autographed card and an additional Relic in every 24-pack hobby box.

The card backs in the 125-card base set will be written by Raw announcer Michael Cole, whose calls and style have been known to rile up a few wrestling fans. But it will be this product’s higher-end approach that should get wrestling collectors riled up even more when it arrives in late-December.

As with the last Topps WWE release, there also will be signed Relic cards as well as 1/1 Red parallels and printing plates.

Each hobby box also will include a dozen insert cards and four serial-numbered parallels, while every six-box case will include a triple Relic limited to 99 or fewer copies.

See more images and highlights from the preliminary checklist after the jump.

The checklist for the autographed Relics set is a small one — just 11 cards — that includes John Cena, Christian, The Miz, Evan Bourne, Edge, Big Show, CM Punk, Kofi Kingston, MVP, R-Truth and Sheamus.

The autograph checklist is slightly larger at 15 with the skip-numbered set including a few first-time signers. Among the autos are Kane, Kelly Kelly, Drew McIntyre, Alicia Fox, Maryse, Chris Jericho, Wade Barrett, Caylan Croft and David Otunga.

The Platinum Triple Relic set will consist of just 10 cards with the headliner being a Triple H-John Cena-Edge card.

Among the insert sets are Platinum Performance, a 25-card set that mixes stars of today and yesterday, and Legendary Superstars, a 25-card set that pairs someone from today to a star from the past.

The base set will consist of a mix of current WWE Superstars and Divas along with Legends and Hall of Famers.

The autograph checklist is quite disappointing for such a higher quality product. I don’t think Wade Barrett, Caylen Croft or David Otunga have been in the WWE for even a year yet. Still looking forward to it though.
