Stoked for this. I'll be front row at the events in November. Though, I do feel a little silly about having commissioned Werner to do pieces for Shotzi and Hudson... Then again, if they don't make it, it'll be nice to have them for use. Still, hard to imagine they wouldn't be at the top of the want list.
Speaking of which...:
Number 1 with a bullet: Tessa Blanchard (arguably the best heel on the roster and one hell of a worker) 2) Tie: Britt Baker & Chelsea Green (would love to add Fire & Nice to the roster, tho either is a great addition) 4) Shotzi Blackheart (she's grown leaps and bounds and her character and presence are great) 5) Hudson Envy (tough with a great look and awesome strikes and submissions) 6) Samantha Heights (great look and character and another who keeps growing every time she steps in the ring) 7) Cat Power (seems logical to include her as she's been a staple of the past year) 8) Dust (major player in RISE and her team with Rosemary make her almost essential at this point)
If there are any updates, I could see one for Delilah Doom and a veteran card for Melissa, and/or some new artwork and tweaked stats for Kay Lee Ray. Charli Evans and Jessica Troy would be nice additions, too. As would Kikiyo or Dynamite DiDi.

Woo-hoo! Such a stacked set. Hoping to grab the set and get all my cards signed this weekend, though I'm not sure if Cat Power is scheduled or not. Regardless, this thing is stacked and the best part is that all these women are on the forefront of what not only Shimmer is doing, but Rise as well. Really looking forward to it.

Well, the cards look fantastic. Picked up my set yesterday at the tapings (they didn't have them Friday or Saturday) and managed to get everyone to sign except Cat Power as she wasn't there. Samantha Heights was super excited as she hadn’t seen it yet and checked all her moves on the back before signing my card. Chelsea and Britt were the same way and wanted to get sets for themselves. Chelsea actually took a picture of my two that they’d signed to tweet out which was cool. I also scored the only signed Tessa card as she wasn't out with merch during intermission or after the show, but ref Brandon Tolle hooked me up and she called me over to the stage to not only sign, but also chat and personalize it. She was incredible and I feel lucky to have gotten the chance and we're lucky to have her in the game because while she didn't come right out and say NXT or WWE, Indi Hartwell gave it away when I got the chance to talk to her again after the show and get a selfie with Tessa. Crazy to think those were her last SHIMMER shows for the foreseeable future.
Overall, I walked away from the weekend with a total of 27 cards signed including my Shotzi Blackheart and Hudson Envy bootlegs that I commissioned from Werner. Shotzi loved the commissioned artwork. Felt very lucky to get Tessa, Saraya (who hardly ever signs or comes out, but I ran into her Friday night and she was incredibly sweet), and Mercedes (also heading for greener pastures) to sign. Shazza had never seen her physical card before and she was stoked to see it in hand. Charli Evans and Jessica Troy totally want cards in the game, so get them signed up for next time if they’re not already.
I'm going to post some more detailed thoughts and some results later, but wanted to throw this out there for now.

I got my Hudson Envy card signed tonight at a FSW show (which is where I signed her to the game earlier this year.) Hudson is really cool and she told me likes her card alot and is really glad to be a part of our game.
