Superstars On Cards – Episode #1
In this debut episode, we travel back in time over 35 years to the very beginning of the golden era of professional wrestling. This is the first WWF card set, featuring many classic superstars such as the Junkyard Dog, Rowdy Piper, The Iron Sheik and more.WWF’s popularity skyrocketed at this time, as they enjoyed incredible success off the back of the first WrestleMania.
This card set also features several Hulk Hogan rookie WWF cards which often sell for a few hundred dollars on their own.The WWF 1985 card set is currently highly valued at a price point of roughly $250 to $300 for a complete used set depending on condition. If you have this sat at home in a box gathering dust in the attic, you might want to preserve it well, as it will surely rise in value over the coming decades. Do you have a favorite card in this set? Please let us know.
