Wrestling Collectibles
« on: August 18, 2018, 02:21:30 AM »
I was just wondering if anyone here had any wrestling collections. It can be anything: DVDs, masks, title belts, autographs, Funko Pops, t-shirts, etc.

Recently I've gotten into autographs mainly because I keep going to meet and greets now. So i have a ton of signed 8x10s on the wall now and collages of me with wrestlers.

I'm considering starting a mask collection though and hanging them on the wall. My friend bought me a BUSHI mask for my birthday just because he thought it was cool. After getting it I think it's pretty damn cool too and wouldn't mind displaying it with some other cool masks. Does anyone know a good way to hang those on the wall btw?

So who collects stuff? Do you have any pictures of your collections?

I have a bunch of WWF action figures from the 90's. I got most of them as gifts. I have six WWF/WWE shirts.

While I wouldn't necessarily call it a collection, the number of wrestling shirts I've acquired over the years that are still in good condition is larger than I'd ever hoped.

DX w/ block WWF logo, Austin 3:16 w/ block logo, various ECW shirts (including a great Triple Threat tee), Wanted Dead, a cool Raven/Dreamer take on the classic Star Wars poster,

I have a lot of old magazines & programs. I have some more recent cards and autographs. Some Coliseum Videos which I'll probably put on Ebay sooner than later. I've had some good luck with the magazines at sports card shows & setting up a table at the local indy matches.

I had a Strangler Lewis ticket stub but donated that to the wrestling hall of fame.

I have a Daryl.

I'll take some pics later of some of my stuff. It's all back in my office. I wonder if my wife will ever let me move it to a common area?

Still want to find some sort of mannequin head that attaches to the wall to hang masks.

If LIJ is going to have meet and greets at the MSG show, I'll bring Daryl there, otherwise, he's staying in his box.

I used to collect a lot of videos and DVDs until the Network, YouTube, and trying to be more responsible with money slowed that down. Used to get WWE DVDs the day they came out and would scour local stores for used items and mailorder from Highspots and Goldenboy. Although I still have everything, I don't really watch any of it very often anymore unless a friend comes over and wants to see Dynamite Kid/Tiger Mask or whatever.

Got a lot of wrestling books too. I always look for them when I'm at the bookstore and have come up on some good ones for nice prices.

I already have too many band t-shirts as it is, so rassling shirts are minimal. My Hulkamania t-shirt that I wore as a little kid still exists and I may or may not still have the Hot Rod shirt hand-drawn by my dad. ROH and New Japan shirts from the shows I attended, plus the Shield (badge/hound of justice design) and a bootleg ECW shirt.

There's also the poster for the ROH Cow Palace show that's signed by Bryan Danielson and Delirious hanging in my hallway.

My mom bought the Macho Man LJN figure back in the '80s and kept it in the package until finally giving it to me in 2013. Macho is still sealed and now resides on my 7-inch shelves with a bunch of little toys and items that I've managed to keep over the years. Also included are several beat-up WWF thumb wrestlers from my childhood - Hogan, Piper, JYD, and Hillbilly Jim - and an empty bottle of Rowdy Roddy Piper bubble gum-flavored soda.

I also have a giant Piper beach towel in a storage box yet to be discovered.

I've always been a collector of all kinds of things, so I probably have more than I care to mention or list, especially with how big of a fan I have been for so long.

As a kid I collected all the figures from all the lines during my fandom, so I have boxes and boxes in my parents garage still with rings and all the accessories.  As a teenager that shifted into tapes and DVDs.  I'd usually pick up the shirts at events but that transitioned into getting more in the modern era when you can get them on sale on Amazon with prime or occasionally making the large Shopzone purchase during sales where I have bought odd stuff like New Day Unicorn horns, Kalisto's mask and that goofy Bayley jacket when it was cheap enough.

I've also been an autograph collector on and off since I was a kid so I have a variety of autograph on 8 x 10s and trading cards whether it was stuff I got signed in person or certified authentics or even some via sending fanmail.  My biggest ones probably being the Shane McMahon 8x10 he sent me when I wrote to him as a kid, seeing it isn't so easy to get a McMahon autograph these days, the certified John Cena card I pulled out of a pack when I bought a box of cards or the multiple different Hulk Hogan things I got at the Bound for Glory 2012 Fan event.  He was only supposed to sign one and I told him I was having a hard time choosing between my classic card or my Hulk Rules CD.  He made a face about the CD but must've appreciated it enough where against the handler's wishes he signed both and gave me a signed 8 x 10 also.  I talk about it in this article on Culture Crossfire - http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/tna/my-day-at-2012s-bound-for-glory-fan-interaction/ (you're welcome, CWM)

I still pick up the occasional figure when they make something cool or I see a deal.  I was on a business trip and got an Andrade Almas figure from Target for $3 and picked up the oddball Virgil with convention sign and Isaac Yankem figures at a closing Toys R Us, seeing getting those odd figures was always my jam when I was younger.

Don't really have any pictures readily available but I should take some of my oddball or unique stuff.

I’ve got probably 100+ wrestling figures from Jakks to Mattel. Never stopped buying those although it’s been a few years and they currently reside in a storage tub until my son is old enough to pull it out and surprise him in a few years. All out of package to play with except for a three pack of Orlando Jordan & The Bashams I hung on my wall in my early 20s as tribute to Cabinet era Smackdown!

Drunken Shopzone and ShopTNA orders were my favorite past time in college and my early 20s. Several Brown Bag specials netted me tons of TNA 8*10s, an Abyss mask, DVDs, and TNA shirts. On the Sopzone side I’ve got a gold Money in the Bank briefcase lunchbox that I’ve never used but am king gaming going to bring it to my buddy’s and cash in on his replica belt someday. The clearance section and getting to free shipping was a favorite some random ass Esge skipper Kofi lanyard and a bunch a stuff I’m forgetting that’s all been tucked away since marriage.

Bunches shirts my favorites being Tomko tattoo shirts from TNA in red AND white, the I DID IT RIPMr. McMahon available for like a week after the limo explosion that was purchased during the Benoit tribute RAW when it became apparent it was a murder suicide and the shirt was pulled soon after, and an Underquaker parody tee with him dresssed as as a Quaker.

I own way too many wrestling shirts. Bunch of odds and ends. Most notably a Stone Cold piggy bank.

I got a ton of Apter/WWF/WCW mags from like 1994-2002, but I was too young to really take care of them. I think I have nearly every issue of Wow Magazine though.

I've got every WWF Magazine and Raw Magazine from 1991-2000ish. Tons and Tons of Apter mags from the 70s-2000ish, almost every LJN figure - minus the rare rare ones+ the ring in a box, almost all the Hasbros-minus the rare rare ones - plus 3 rings, tons of Hogan odds and ends that fills up 3 or more bookshelves, totes and totes of wrestling books, a signed Hogan SI magazine, all the NES/SNES wrestling games, an Atari wrestling game and a few of the Playstation games.

I picked up way too many wrestling toys recently as some stores have been doing some clearances to make room after the holidays and get in some new stuff.  Try to get a mix of current and past just because I like the way they look now.  For example, I remember how excited I was to get the first released pair of New Age Outlaws figures back in the day.  The Road Dogg toys were always kinda lame but I loved Road Dogg.  Target has a line that had an exclusive Road Dogg I wanted to buy at full price but I found on clearance for $10 (which is half off what they usually go for).



I also got the Billy to go with him, along with some other stuff that was cheap. 


Just crazy looking at some of the stuff they release now.  A lot of the guys are starting to come with changable handles to change their poses, like they had images of a Nakamura with standard fighting hands that you can change out to match some of the poses he does in his entrance.  Same with an upcoming AJ Styles.  There is a Nia Jax that is either coming soon or out now with three different heads to change between all her looks -



Just crazy to see the evolution of this stuff.
