1998 Topps WCW NWO Wrestling Cards

1998 Topps WCW NWO trading cards kicked off one of the strongest runs in wrestling card history. It's not the most creative of products, but the autograph checklist might very well be the strongest ever for this corner of the hobby.

The 72-card base set consists almost entirely of profile cards. It's a showcase of WCW at its peak with the NWO storyline dominating the industry. There's a mix of old-school names who were big in WWF a decade earlier as well as several "homegrown" superstars.

The biggest strength of 1998 Topps WCW NWO is the autographs. This is the case with all of Topps' WCW sets. The set includes the first signed cards from several all-time greats including Hulk Hogan, Eddy Guerrero, Kevin Nash and Chris Jericho. Chris Benoit is also in the set.

Inserted 1:40 hobby packs, most hobby boxes have an autograph, but it's not a guarantee. Combine that with a large checklist of almost 40 cards and you've got the recipe for some extremely tough and pricey cards.

It's important to note that autographs are only in hobby boxes. The chance at signed cards are noted on the boxes themselves. Retail boxes say there is one sticker per pack.

Hobby packs also have Chrome inserts. These originally came with a protective film designed to protect the card's surface. Stickers are the only inserts in retail packs.
