2016 Topps WWE Heritage preview

2016 Topps WWE Heritage picks up where last year’s WWE Heritage set left off in throwing it back 30 years for its design. Just as 2015 Heritage got its inspiration from 1985 Topps Baseball, this year’s product will take its design from 1986 Topps Baseball and its striking black and white borders.

The base set for 2016 Heritage features 110 cards that highlight the top WWE Superstars and Divas as well as promising talent from NXT and WWE Legends. Base cards have five levels of parallels: Bronze (99 per subject), Silver (hobby exclusive, 50 per subject), Blue (25 per subject), Gold (10 per subject) and Red (one per subject).

Complimenting the base set are three sets of inserts that take a look back on the history of the WWE and its formal rival promotion World Championship Wrestling (WCW). WCW/nWo All-Stars salutes 40 great WCW wrestlers, including members of the New World Order (nWo) faction that helped WCW challenge WWE for TV ratings during the “Monday Night Wars” in the late 1990s. Turn Back the Clock features 30 reprinted cards from WWE and WCW trading card sets produced by Topps and Merlin from 1985 to 1999. Record Breakers highlights 30 record-breaking accomplishments by WWE and WCW wrestlers. Each insert set lands one per pack.


2016 Heritage will also include 10 cards from the 40-card The Rock Tribute set that has been spread across Topps’s 2016 WWE products.
