Championship Belts

Forgive me if this is the wrong forum for this thread. As a huge belt mark, I was wondering who else here is a fan of wrestling title belts? The ones on TV today in WWE which are made by Joe Marshall arent to great, IMO. The J-Gold, which Benoit carries, is a nice version of the original, but apart from that, the only other belt I like in any way is the WWE title carried by Eddie Guererro.

As a belt mark and real hand crafted belt collector, I'd love to see WWE have the King of Belts Reggie Parks start making them again (for those who dont know, Reggie made all the classic WWF belts like the awesome IC that Mr. Perfect, HBK, Bret Hart etc made famous, the Tags that Demolition and the Hart Foundation made famous, and the best belt of all time, the Winged Eagle that Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, the Ultimate Warrior and Bret Hart etc made famous.

I have all these belts along with several others in my collection all from Reggie and his partner and my good friend Dave "The Ace" Millican.

Sorry for my long winded thread, I was just wondering if there are other belt marks lurking around these parts who might like to talk belts at some point.

Well yes, I'm a belt mark, but of the newish generation :)

 

I'm only 15, so surely it's understandable..

 

Anyhow, I'm basically in love with the World Heaveyweight Championship. When I save up enough, I'm definitely purchasing the replica. I also like the intercontinental title which is currently held by Randy Orton.

 

I'm not a big fan of the WWE title, it's look just doesn't appeal to me. Both tag team titles are pretty nice. The cruiserweight doesn't appeal to me, nor did the hardcore or the european when they were around.

I'm not sure if you have collected belts before, so if you have, ignore my advice. But as a long time collector, I find that the Figures Inc replica belts have very stiff straps and flat plates. You should put a nice curve in the main plates on them, just bend them over the top of your leg or something, it makes them look a whole lot better. Also, send them to be releathered onto a proper strap, my buddy Mike does this, his website is http://www.releathering.com and he does a GREAT job! Also, I know these replica belts are like £250 each here in the UK, but if you sign up to eBay USA, you can buy them for like $185 and less, plus say $45 shipping to England, which comes to $230 or less per belt which is about £120, saving yourself £130 per belt! Hope this helps...

if you want to post this site in should be on the plug forums but i dont see the point in doing this at all y do you do it

 

Is this comment directed at me? If it is, I totally dont understand it! I'm talking about title belts, SCSA mentioned he may buy one and I was giving him helpful advice on saving some cash. Is there a problem with that?

As for title belts, the old WCW belt looked so much better than the current HHH-Ego-Appeaser title, and the US title looked better too. In fact, most of the WCW belts were quite good. I liked the 1998-2002 WWF title, and the ECW world title. Other than that, the Intercontinental title up until 1998 was real cool :)

Yes, that IC used from 1986-1998 was awesome, and more commonly known as the 'Reggie IC'. I have one that was made for me by Reggie on Yellow leather, ALA the Ultimate Warrior at WMVI.

The WWF title from 1998-2002 was made by Joe Marshall (JMar) out of Ohio USA, and is more commonly known as the 'Big Eagle'. The first one with the WWF block logo and the blue leather was awesome, the second version with the WWF scratch logo and black leather was great too. ECW title was also made by JMar.

As for the Undisputed, the V.1 was my favorite. It was smaller, had no black border on the plates and a logo plate. It was the original that Hulk and HHH held. The V.2 was the one Taker lost to Rock in the triple thread match with Angle at Vengeance 2002 and it was HUGE. Ugly, IMO. The current one is the V.3, its a little bigger than the first, smaller than the second and has no logo plate.

Well you have helped me already :thumbsup I tried to get hold of the Title belts in the states at mania, but they sold out so quick. I already use Ebay UK, so i will look around on the US one. I did love the old WCW championship, and the Smoking Skull belt. I noticed they had the smoking skull belt on shopzone, but this was just after mania when i had spent all my dosh!!

Shows are Ireland, Manchester and Birmingham. I'm going to the Brummy one. Cool about your plates, you should have them in the next 4-5 weeks or so tops. Yup, I have one on the way from Dave, only ordered 2 weeks or so ago though, so another few months yet.

Mikes work is great, I posted real close up shots of the white strap he did for my WE on my site championofengland.com so check it out if you wanna close up. I always buy my Fig Inc replica belts from Corn or Steeladeal on eBay USA (saves me about £130 PER BELT!) and have them sent directly to Mike in Miami for releathering, so that I dont have to have it sent here from the US, then back to the US, then back here again.

Ive never bought any others other than Corn, the money you save could get them leathered and still some money left over

 

Like on Sunday I was down at a FWA show with corino and of course he was NWA champ during his tour with Zero One, and they wanted 200 quid for it, I agree the prices in this country are rip off

Yeah, the prices here suck because, obviously, everything is in GBP £££. Seeing as the US dollar is so weak, we can save a fortune when we buy from the US, even with the high US to UK shipping prices on top. Its a good time to be a belt collector!

It worked out 120 quid for mine with postage and import duties, im hoping my belt doesnt cost to much on import duties meh we will see, its got to be paid for now

 

Hopefully Mike doesnt list the value on the box

 

Mike does list the value, but I ask him to mark it as gift with a value of $50 US dollars, that way you usually dont get charged a single penny.
