    Triple Threads

    Triple Threads


    One master box - 2 mini boxes - 7 cards per mini box
    Each mini-box contains an auto and one relic card



    I received these:

    Base - 6x - of the set of 100

    Seaver, Lindor, C, Jones, Y. Molina, Ruth, and Betts

    Triple Threads is a premium issue. The cards are thick with a high gloss front and gold foil imprinting. They really look good. If one would want to get one graded, be careful of the corners -- easily dinged!

    The reverse is colorful and easy to read. Players stats include both personal and career MLB stats along with the Triple Take synopsis of a highlight of his career.

    I am a bit torn as to suggest that Triple Threads is an issue for the set builder. One receives only 6 base cards in the master box.... at that rate, one will need to pick up at least 17 master boxes to have enough (depending entirely on collation) for the base set. I tend to lean toward the player collector for Triple Threads. One will have a number of parallels, different relic cards, white whales, autos in several varieties -- all of which might be fun to chase of your favorite player.

    Inserts/Parallels

    Purple



    Soto and Gwynn both #ed to 299

    Green and Gold



    Green - Soto #ed to 259
    Gold - Ruth #ed to 75

    RELICS

    Jumbo Relic



    David Price #ed to 36

    Triple Relic



    Luis Castillo #ed to 9

    AUTOS



    Willians Astudillo #ed to 99

    Triple Relic/Auto



    Paul Goldschmidt -- triple patch -- 1/1

    One drawback -- the auto is a sticker .... looks good, but still a sticker on a premium product.

    ***************

    Overall grade A+


    If one finds a Ray or 3 in this issue, let me know, and we'll do some trading!!

    Being a Cards fan, that Goldschmidt is AWESOME!!!! I didn't even notice the 1/1 until I read David's comment and went back and looked. Guess I was so in awe of the card in general, didn't even notice that part. GREAT PULL!!!

    That Goldschmidt is awesome! That's a pull to remember.
    Looking for Minnesota Twins, Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers and Minnesota Wild; will look at all trade lists. Looking for Hall of Fame game-used and autos in baseball, football and hockey. Also looking for trade material, will look at Photobuckets.

    Especially considering the /99 is on-card, yeah, that sticker sits funny for me. This is such a weird set every year, but a 1/1 is always nice!

    That was my thought exactly! 10 years ago we were accustomed to sticker auto's, but now? Especially on a 1/1..........Perplexing to say the least.........The patches are way cool.......Mike

    Triple Threads is almost always sticker autos. Been that way for years sadly. Still an awesome card though.

    I have interest in the two Soto parallels if they are available, thanks.

    Great break btw!
