I don't know much about territory wrestling obviously so help from those who do would be greatly appreciated.
They both do ship overseas, though Cal will likely tell you he and the post office are having one of those on and off feuds over the years. I know Seabs said it would be £40 (overseas shipping included in price) for a 22 disc MOTY set in the Other Wrestling Section. Memphis and Mid South are 12 and 10 discs respectively iirc so no idea how the price would work out. Seabs I think does £1.50 a disc in most cases, not sure on Cal.
Erm. Memphis is generally regarded as one of if not the best set. Lawler, Dundee, Koko, Flair appearance, Mantell, Savage and his famous Lawler feud from '84-85. Austin Idol, Bigelow, Fabulous Ones, Moondogs etc. Its largely more of a brawling territory, so you're not gonna get Flair esque NWA defences in the comp minus the exceptional Koko ware title match in '85. The angles, segments and matches are generally exceptional.
Mid South is highly acclaimed as well. Duggan, Dibiase, Rock n Roll Express, Chavo Classic, Dick Murdoch, Buzz Sawyer, Flair, Midnight Express, Butch Reed are all heavily featured and there's some exceptional matches, angles and promos. The Duggan/Dibiase feud from '83-85 is amazing and has one of the best blowoff matches in history in the Tuxedo, Coal Miner's Glove on a Poll Steel Cage Match. All the stipulations make sense in the context of the feud and despite the bizarre name its a bloody, heated war. Basically imagine JBL/Eddie and you get that in Memphis and Mid South in the big feuds.
AWA I haven't seen much of but that is apparently getting a lot of praise. FWIW I'm getting Memphis, Mid South and AWA and then one individual wrestler comp.
