Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat
I recently was lucky enough to get add two more cards to my collection of Steamboat signed cards bringing my total to six signed cards. The precious four consist of three WWF cards and a WCW card.
The card on the left is from the 1986 Monty Wrestling card set and the card on the right is from the 2019 Starrcast II card set.
He did respond to a few questions I had in my letter to him. He considers his greatest match of all time to be at Wrestlemania III against "Macho Man" Randy Savage. His greatest match with "Nature Boy" Ric Flair to be from Clash of the Champions VI April 2, 1989 in New Orleans, LA Steamboat defending the NWA World Championship against Flair inn 2 out of the 3 falls match.
For those wondering below are the other four cards signed by Mr. Steamboat are 1985 O-Pee-Chee series 2, 1987 WWF Topps, 1991 Classic GamesWWF set , and 1992 WCW Magazine.
The card on the left is from the 2001 Fleer Superstars card set and the card on the right is from the 2008 Topps Heritage IV WWE card set. I was surprised to find out that Brisco's first ever trading card is from the 1998 Comic Images WWF Superstarz set.
The card on the left is from the 1988 NWA Wonderama set and the card on the right is from the 2019 Starrcast II set. I already have two cards signed by Tony, a different NWA Wonderama and a WCW card. I'd love to get David Crockett to sign this card as well.
I'm so super excited to add this card to my collection. Mr. Hansen is a living legend in Japan and one of my favorites to watch. I just love his bad ass style. This card is from the 2011 BBM Legend of the Champion card set.
