WWF Barry Horowitz 1990 trading card

From the 1990 Classic WWF trading card series comes this Barry Horowitz card.

Remember, this was a full 5 years before he actually got a push from beating Skip.

You Crappers know how much I love Barry (we’ve even featured his t-shirt in a past Someone Bought This!), but man; if I had gotten this card from some kid in a trade or found it in a wax pack in 1990, I would have been so disappointed at the time…

What I want to know is, who on Earth decided that Barry of all people warranted a trading card?

If you have this card, put it in one of those hard plastic protective cases, stick it in a safety deposit box at the bank, and give yourself a great big Barry Horowitz pat on the back because you have a true collectable on your hands!

    At least this is before they turned him into UberGeek, complete with thick glasses and suspenders. And that whole thing where they paired him up with Hakushi was pretty unnecessary as well!

  2. Zac Campbell says:

    They also have Brooklyn Brawler, Jack Tunney, Danny Davis and Sean Mooney cards

    I remember the Summer of Horowitz in 95.

    People were looking for something good to cheer. It wasn’t the best year for WWF.

      I remember Barry’s push as well. It was refreshing to see him win.

      I hated the BodyDonnas.

    ’95 was my last house show. Raw supertaping. several weeks of Raw in one long, boring night. It was not, indeed, the best year for the WWE. Was great to see Horowitz get a bit of a push though. I believe I saw him in an epic enconter with some goof named Hunter Hurst Helmsley.

    “After further consideration I hereby declare that the Jack Tunney is unequivocally the greatest card in the world.” #Tunney hot lovin’ machine (I bet that hashtag will never be taken)

    What’s next? A Shoot video of Barry Horriblewitz? Upside, this card is for the fans of Mr.Horowitz

    One of my favorite all-time Jobbers! Too bad they never made an “Iron” Mike Sharpe trading card. In the words of the late, great Gorilla Monsoon, “That is truly a miscarriage of justice!”.

    Look at the H!

    I got this card and all of the others in a set from Sears or JC Penny (or maybe even Montgomery Ward’s, I’m not sure which) for Christmas shortly after I started watching wrestling. And when I say all of the others, I mean it, the set came with every single card and a binder to store them in.

  11. ChrisV says:

    Yep. I remember buying that same set. The binder was incredibly stiff, so it was hard to insert the cards, if I remember correctly. Also, I believe the binder smelled badly, like rubber that had been sitting out in the sun for a time.

    Strange that he got one, but indeed on it being rare.
