Ah, high-end products. You either love them or hate them, based strictly off of your pulls. And while that
thought process obviously goes into the end result of Triple Threads, this long-running, cross-sport
product usually delivers something.
Except in my box, that is.
OK, let’s be honest. The hits I walked away with won’t exactly make someone jump around in excitement.
That said, the cards themselves are gorgeous. All of them. The base card design is beautiful, with great
pictures and an elegant layout. The autograph and relic cards are what everyone has come to expect from
Triple Threads, with autographs and relics seamlessly integrated together, whether it is in the usual triple
relics or the new single relics.
Check out the Greg Little triple jersey in the photo on the right. As they always do in Triple Threads, Topps has gotten very
creative with the phrases and words they have used in the set this year, and this one is one of the more unique ones in the
As they did with their Baseball set this year, Topps added in extra value to the packs, with two hits per, instead of the one from
past years. The Unity Relics can be paired with other cards in the product for that player to piece together one triple card, given
player collectors a little extra to chase and adding that little oomph to the box.
I won’t hold the hits against the product in this case, simply because that is just the way it is with high-end boxes. If you can
afford it, Triple Threads is always worth the risk, and this year is no different........................
