Last week I posted about one of my latest WWF Hasbro additions - a Bart Gunn 2-up head. That item alone is super rare however tonight I'm posting about a duo of pick ups that exceed that rarity.
The items in question -
The Undertaker Unreleased Orange Cards 2-up heads.
Before we go into detail on these items I think it's well worth looking at the back story that surrounds this illusive part of the Hasbro line.
It's long been reported that before the WWF Hasbro line ended a Orange card series was in the works - and up until recently this was an unconfirmed rumour.
Names including everyone from Diesel to Mabel were banded around but it wasn't until wax sculpts from a former employee were unearthed that the full line up was realised.
One of those wax sculpts uncovered was that of the Undertaker.
The Undertaker had already featured in the line in previous series however the planned figure was a new sculpt.
Now - It's been mentioned before that I have - since my days of running thewrestlingcollector.com - made numerous contracts in the figure market and on the same day I purchased the Bart Gunn 2-up I also got these painted and unpainted 2-up Orange Card Undertaker Heads.
Those who collect Hasbro WWF figures will realise the importance of these items - for those who don't - the best way to explain them is a Hasbro collectors dream - considered non existent / lost for so long having these is a missing piece of the Hasbro puzzle.
Plans are afoot to have them graded and cased.
2014 has been an epic year for collectors of the line and these will form part of the history behind the line

The unpainted head looks so perfect and so much better.
