    Extremely Rare 1985 Topps WWF 3-D Wrestling Stars. What can we say? It was the 1980's and the WWF - no, not the World Wildlife Fund - but the World Wrestling Federation, Inc. run by Jim McMahon who turned the art of professional wrestling into a world-wide phenomenon to crowds numbering in the millions. The pinnacle was Hulk Hogan's battle with André the Giant during "The Main Event I" in 1988 that was seen by 33 million people. The cast of wrestlers was as diverse a list of personalities as one could hope for. Andre The Giant. Hulk Hogan. The Undertaker. The Million Dollar Man. The Ultimate Warrior. Brutus, The Barber Beefcake. George, The Animal Steele. "Ravishing" Rick Rude. Jesse "The Body" Ventura. And of course, the queen of wrestling - Miss Elizabeth. Even Mr. T got in the ring. It was pure entertainment that played out in front of the most passionate fans of any "sport" on the planet.

    There were a few trading card sets devoted to wrestling. If you don't remember the 1985 Topps WWF 3-D Pro Wrestling Stars series don't feel bad as they were available on a far more limited basis as the standard Topps WWF Pro Wrestling Stars. The roster was just a dozen names. The cards were approx. 4-1/2" x 6" and as promised, the cards feature detailed embossing freeing each larger than life character from the two-dimensional realm.

    Offered is a possibly unique unopened box of 1985 Topps #-D Wrestling Stars! Our offered box contains all 24 packs and shows some creasing to the top panel which is a moot point. It is without a doubt extremely rare. Asking hobby expert Steve Hart of Baseball Card Exchange for his opinion, we were told he is aware of just one other box but it is incomplete. This is the only full box he is aware of. He described the packs as NM-MT. The packs were authenticated by Mr. Hart and the box comes sealed in the BBCE wrapper.
