Wow, if you have the itch to bust an awesome high end product, then 2010 Topps Triple Threads is for you! 2010 TTT has a sharp and clean design, a mix of veteran and retired stars, every card is serial numberd and one heck of a big hit! Of course with only three base cards per mini box, collectors are going to be hard pressed to complete the base set. You should not have a problem trading or flipping these cards though. In terms of the "lottery ticket' mentality, yo are going to have a higher chance of getting a big one. The auto is a sticker auto but the card is made to fit it. I do have one concern though. The cards moved around pretty loosely in the wrapper and the pack itself moved around in the mini-box. This caused some minor dings on the base cards. The relic hit was in the middle of the pack so it was pretty well protected.

The Bottom Line:
I give 2010 Topps Triple Threads a buy rating. You will have a hard and expensive time trying to complete the base set with buying mini-boxes. That is not what 2010 TTT is about though. Go buy a box and try to cash in on your lottery ticket!

The Final Score:
Final Ratings (Out of 5):
Base set collect-ability: 1/5
Big-hit Hunter: 5/5
Prospector Hunter:N/A
Overall Design: 5/5
Fun: 5/5
Value: 4/5
Re-buy: 5/5
Overall Quality: 5/5

Overall: 30/35 (86% = B)

As always I am offering base cards to members of The Bench for a SASE

Thanks to Topps for making this review possible!
