HOW TO USE THIS SITE
This website contains market prices (MARKET) & book values (BOOK) for every widely released professional wrestling trading card set.
market price: This is the current suggestive price you should pay for the card you are looking to purchase. It is best used as a measuring device that lets you know what that exact card has been selling for under current market conditions, usually as determined by recent eBay auctions.
book value: This is the actual worth and overall value of the card itself. Book value is often referred to as the real value of the card. When purchasing a card, this value allows you to assess the potential gain or investment value you are receiving on the card at the present time.
The number of individual cards in each complete or base set is provided in brackets. The prices stated are for all the cards in the set.

Many factors go into determining a wrestling trading card's price and value. The popularity of the wrestling personality on the card, the type of card it is, the condition of the card, and the supply and demand for it are the major pricing components. Other important factors include the rarity of the card, if the card features a deceased wrestler, and current /future market and economic conditions. There are no crystal balls for determining a card's future price and value. Pricing can often vary widely from seller to seller. Unfortunately for most collectors, this makes it difficult to determine how much to pay for a specific card. Anyone can list any figure they wish on any given card. If nobody knows the card's true market price or book value then how is anyone to really know if they are getting good value for their money when looking to purchase a specific card?
A wrestling trading card, just like any other trading card, cannot have its market price or book value calculated solely on just one single basis or market. There are a myriad of ways to acquire trading cards of all types, including wrestling trading cards. Some people believe that an online auction site is the only place where trading cards of any kind are bought and sold. It is important for both collectors and sellers alike of wrestling trading cards to understand that just because any given card sells on an auction site for one price does not mean that is the true market price of that given card. Trading cards of all types are found for sale in many other places beyond online auction sites. One must remember that nobody can be on a computer 24 hours a day, to bid on any given card for any long duration of time. The card that sells on auction today for 'x' amount of dollars might sell higher or lower just a day or two day later due to a larger base of buyers being able to spare the time to actually place a bid on that exact card. That is why it is important to recognize that there is a mass marketplace out there where more than just online bidding is taking place, and this very much factors into the overall pricing and valuation of the cards.
