Across the Country for the Perfect Blaster of WWE Women's Division

When I was in New Jersey last October, I went to Walmart once to get some food and drinks for my barracks room. Naturally, I had to stop in the card aisle to see what the card selection on the East Coast looked like. I wound up selecting a blaster of 2017 Topps WWE Women's Division cards, and it wound up being a pretty darn good one.


Parallel cards are surprisingly hard to pull out of these boxes. I got a Gold parallel of Asuka from the NXT Matches and Moments subset. This one is numbered # 08 / 10. The Gold parallels fall 1:62 boxes. This box wasn't done giving, though, as each blaster guarantees a hit card.


I got a Blue parallel of Bayley's Mat Relic card. This one is numbered # 08 / 25. These fall 1:25 blasters. The card contains a piece of the mat from the NXT Takeover: London event in December of 2015.

This was a pretty nice box of cards for me, containing rare cards for two wrestlers I collect. The Bayley hit was especially nice, but the Asuka parallel is also quite a pull. Maybe I should buy cards in other states more often!

  1. I enjoy taking a peak at card aisles when I'm on the road. I rarely buy anything at the time, but it is fun for me to see what they look like.

    1. I will usually buy some cards when I am traveling. I typically try to find a local hobby shop, but if I can't the retail aisle is my next stop. It helps me get my card fix while I'm away from my mailbox.

  2. Congratulations! Most of my blaster purchases occur when I visit my parents in Vegas. They have a much better selection than in the Bay Area.

    1. I find that some areas have really good retail card selection, while others have almost nothing. I wonder why?
