Boxing trading cards haven't made too much of a splash in the 21st Century (or for the last few decades of the previous one, to be honest), but I can tell you that being on hand at the National Sports Collectors Convention last summer, the 2010 debut of the Ringside Boxing set went over pretty well.

Now the company behind those cards, Creative Cardboard Concepts, is set to drop a follow-up series on August 3. Aptly called Ringside Boxing Round 2, this set looks a little leaner and meaner but still has all of the cool features we saw the first time around.

The base set (basically the "regular" cards for you non-collectors out there) consists of 100 cards featuring boxers past and present. The mix is an interesting one just like last year, ranging from active guys like Tomasz Adamek, Glen Johnson and Antonio Tarver to relatively recent retirees like Ricky Hatton and Joe Calzaghe to names from the sport's more distant past. Several subsets focus on things like weigh-ins and the Tale of the Tape from specific fights.

The real interest in Ringisde Boxing, though, comes from its extensive checklist of autographs and memorabilia cards (which contain small pieces of gear actually worn by boxers in their fights). Autograph signers for Round 2 include Roberto Duran, Evander Holyfield and Shane Mosley. The Cut Signature cards are the real head-turners, as they show off signatures cut from other kinds of documents from the likes of Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Sonny Liston and Sugar Ray Robinson. These cards are limited to just a single copy each and usually end up going for big money on the secondary market.

My problem with this years release compared to last years is that with a case purchase I won't get a 1/4 of the base set. I am a huge boxing fan especially the boys who I grew Up with, foreman, frazier, ali. I paid big money for ringside part 1 and would do it again except...

Base wise I only get 24 /100 assuming no duplicates sad.gif Last year in a 10 box case I got the entire base set all 100 cards and maybe 24 or so turkey red inserts

While I find this a very enticing hit wise it lacks the Hitman Hearns, Hagler, Sugar Ray Leonard and George Foreman appeal that woudlve made it a multiple case buy for me. Last year we had Holmes, ali, frazier, Whitaker, jones, cooney and All I kept thinking was is Dr Price saved some great ones for this next release but.. after reviewing the checklist... sad.gif

Evander never thrilled me, Roberto was always the enemy Not that I didnt love him, mercer and Toney ushered the fall of the heavyweight division If I had all the money I spent on pay per views watching Sugar Ray, Chavez, Arguello, Hearns, Foreman and even Riddick Bowe later Id be wealthy beyond belief.. Where are those guys?. Heck Pacquiao wouldve made me buy a case! unsure.gif

At the present I am going to take a wait and see approach to the market before I commit any money!
