Fleer, WWE team up for special set
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling
World Wrestling Entertainment has announced that Fleer/Skybox International will be a major promotional partner, leading up to Wrestlemania XX next year at Madison Square Gardens.
For every WWE pay-per-view event, beginning with August's SummerSlam pay-per-view, fans who purchase the events will receive a package of cards form a specially-created, 40-card set. Wrestlers who will be part of the set include current WWE stars, as well as retired greats such as Andre the Giant and Superfly Jimmy Snuka and others.
As well, there will be event memorabilia cards from prior Wrestlemanias. These cards will include swatches from ring mats, chairs, shirts and other materials. The cards will be randomly inserted at a rate of 1:30 packs.
