New Grail Card update!

If you follow this blog that I sparsely post on anymore you may recall last spring when I posted about my new grail card that I aim to get signed. If you don't recall please have a read: New Grail Card.

In June 2022 I went to Big Time wrestling and met Arn Anderson and got the first signature on the card.  I also got several cards signed that night by FTR and got to see the best tag team in the world be managed by Bret Hart for the first time ever again Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. 

Lex Luger had been advertised to appear with Sting in July, but that event was cancelled.  It worked out though as ROH ended up announcing Death Before Dishonor for that same date, and I ended up with a front row seat next to the commentators and it was an amazing night!  Got to see FTR wrestle The Briscoes in the main event in a two out of 3 falls match. 

I mailed my card to my buddy Brandon in November as he was going to WrestleCade where David Crockett was making a rare appearance.  I was a bit annoyed as Crockett's prices were raised from what was listed online to what was charged in person by $10 a signature.  Lex Luger was also appearing at the show so I able to get both David Crockett and Luger added to the card. 

Just after Christmas I mailed the horsemen card and another NWA Wonderama card of Ric Flair to Fiterman's Sports in Houston, Texas as they were hosting Ric Flair at a sports convention and accepted mail in orders.  

Honestly it cost much less than I thought it would based on what Ric has been charging at the conventions I went to and other appearances he has been making.  The signing was on January 15th and I just got them back in the mail a couple days ago.  I am so happy with how they came out!  

The Horsemen card has plenty of room for the remaining signatures and that purple just looks amazing on the solo Flair card!

There is plenty of room for JJ Dillon and Tully Blanchard to sign the card.  I just need to find a way to get it signed.  I'm not to concerned about Tully, however I'm keeping my eyes peeled for JJ Dillon.  He seems to be doing less and less signings, and as he's going to be 81 years old this year, I'm not surprised. 

Thank you for reading, please leave a comment, check out my other posts, and if you want like my blogs Facebook page.  You can also head over to Amazon and pick up a copy of my new book Limitless Wrestling: The First Five Years, or any of my other books as well.  

Until next time!
