Anyways...let's get back on track. Even though I'm not a fighter myself, I've always enjoyed sports like mixed martial arts and professional wrestling and that's what today's post is all about.
However... before we get to the cardboard, let's set the mood with some Survivor...
There are a handful of songs from my childhood that literally get the adrenaline flowing and this song is one of them. Now that we've got some mood music in the background, let's check out some cards that Chris over at The Raz Card Blog recently sent me...
Two weeks ago, he wrote a post about these WWE gaming cards and I asked him if Topps produced Harry Fujiwara or Ricky Steamboat cards. Topps dropped the belt and left Mr. Fuji off their checklist, but it was nice to hear that they showed The Dragon some love. As I've mentioned a few times on this blog, he's one of my favorite wrestlers of all-time. Raz pulled an extra from his packs and generously sent it my way.
He also sent me another duplicate sitting in his collection:
2016 BBM True Heart Autograph #NNO
I honestly don't follow Japanese women's wrestling, but I always enjoy reading about their trading cards on Raz's blog. The wrestlers featured in BBM's True Heart sets always seem to have the coolest autographs around and Dash Chisako doesn't disappoint. I love how she incorporates a face into her signature. Wouldn't it be cool to see Mike Trout infuse a glove into his autograph?
Last... but certainly not least are these two cards of Daniel Cormier:
2016 UFC Museum Collection Meaningful Material #DCO
2016 Topps UFC Top of the Class Black #TOC7
Thank you Chris for this very generous care package! Spring Break will be coming up in a few weeks and when it arrives, I'll make sure to ship some cardboard in your direction.
Until then... happy Saturday and sayonara!
