This set of 36 standard-sized cards was issued in limited quantities, rumors being that only 2,000 complete sets were ever produced. The cards were initially released in cellophane-wrapped complete sets for $5.00 per set. This style of packaging had a tendency to damage card corners, making high-grade examples a challenge to locate. Card fronts featured solid colored borders with a color image of the wrestler, while standard biographical information can be found on the reverse. Many of the top wrestlers of the day are featured, with the cards from this set being considered their rookie cards. A similar 36-card series B, featuring other wrestlers, was also produced in the same year.
