Signed Trading Cards: Masked Superstar, Prince Iukea, Simon Diamond, & Steven Regal

Some more signed cards I got through the mail


Masked Superstar

This is a first for me, this is a custom card that I bought off eBay.  The card is just a bit smaller than a normal sized trading cards, it has decent thickness and a really cool retro look to it.  The seller is 2015greatcustoms and with 12,219 positive feedback I took a chance on buying a couple cards from him.  He currently has almost 10,000 items for sale in his eBay store, I linked his account on his name.


Simon Diamond

Both of these cards came from TNA's first card set released in 1994 by Pacific Cards. Now I just need to get Johnny Swinger to sign his side of the card.


"Mr. Electricity" Steve Regal

I mailed these cards back on May 28, 2019 and got them back May 18, 2020.  He sent a letter stating that his wife had tuck it away and he just found it.  The card on the left is from 1983 Wrestling All Stars set and the card on the right is from the 1986 Monty set.


Prince Iukea

I mailed these cards to the Prince, not only did he sign my cards but he also sent along an inscribed 8 x 10 photo, which I think is really cool!  The card on the left is from the 1999 WCW Embossed card set and the card on the right is from WCW's last trading card set from WCW Magazine released in 2000.



Crowbar

It's not usual for me to send cards to a wrestler to sign for me twice in a short period but I found that I had this Crowbar card from the final WCW set that was released in 2000 in WCW Magazine.

Signed Trading Cards: Joey Styles, Cougar Jay, Retro AG, & The Blue Meanie

This blog looks at more through the mail trading card signatures


Joey Styles

This card is from the 2007 Topps WWE Action line.  I wanted this card to get signed by Joey because in the background it has the big ECW logo.  I think it's hilarious that he covered the entire card and I love it!


Cougar Jay

This card is from the NWA Wonderama set released in 1988 in conjunction with Jim Crockett Promotions.  These are my favorite wrestling cards to get signed.  Cougar Jay aka Dion Moore, began wrestling in 1986 after being trained by Gene Anderson.  He wrestled for several promotions and his last run was as a tag team with R-Truth called Rock-n-Rapp 2000.  He left wrestling in 1999 and currently runs his own Ghost Tours company in St. Augustine, Florida.  He can read more about him on his website here: Dion Moore Ghost Tours


Retro AG

This card was released by AG himself, limited to 100 cards it reflects his WrestleMaina 2020 weekend.  This card is done in the same style has his first two sets of self released cards.


The Blue Meanie

This card was created by 4 Corners Cards in 2019.
