Topps Triple Threads is back, and with it comes an upgrade to the successful formula that
annually makes it a highly collected product, despite the high price.

By now, we all know what Triple Threads is about. Great base cards, all numbered, all printed on

super thick stock. Lots of parallels. And, of course, the hits. In the past, it was one hit per pack, but
it is now up to two. However, given the impact the new hits bring, I’m not so sure they are really

The shot at triple relics, triple autographs and other high-end hits still exists, and you’ll now get one autographed card per
pack as opposed to one in a two-pack box. But now, some of the autographs are on basic one-piece relic cards. Those are the
cards that, frankly, don’t do anything special for me, and the single piece cards that don’t have an autograph just don’t seem to
fit in this product. They are nice and do add a little extra value to a pack that carries a hefty price tag (as usual, around $100 per
pack), but don’t add any luster to a lustrous product.

Of course, the triple relics are great, and the cool one I pulled that spells out VACUUMS in ingenious and gorgeous. There are
plenty of triple autos out there, plus some more intriguing relic cards that are tougher pulls…although I’ve never been lucky
enough to pull one.

In all, it is more of the same from Triple Threads, and then a little more thrown in. At the end of the day, that is certainly not a
bad thing........................
