2009 WWE Debuts to Critical Acclaim

A colleague of mine was responsible for almost single handily assembling the checklist for the new WWE trading card set. I am very proud of him and his work. I have yet to get my hands on a box but was delighted to see how well received it has been in the market-place to date. If I do get my hands on a box, it might be perceived as a conflict of interest for me to provide any sort of review or commentary, so what I'd like to do is a live box-break on UStream with a live chat, so YOU can do the review.

For now, I will instead refer you to (and believe me, it pains me to do so) Beckett's take on this long awaited new product.

Read their take here.
