First of all I’d like to give a shout out to baseballfactorysets.com. I ordered my box of 2011 Topps Triple Threads baseball on Sunday night, and it arrived this afternoon. Considering the fact that it was coming from Houston, TX, (to North Carolina) that’s EXTREMELY fast shipping. They’re also reasonably priced when compared to all of the other sports card websites out there. So be sure to check them out.
Now, my thoughts on Triple Threads itself is that you have a great shot of getting your money back ($220 a box) but even if you don’t, you’ll end up with some awesome cards. Each box has two mini boxes in them, and inside each mini box is five base cards, one auto card, and one relic card. (One of the relics will be a triple relic, and one of the auto cards will be a triple relic auto.)
In terms of the product, this is what the box itself looks like:
As stated, there are two mini boxes:
Of the two boxes, here are the base cards I recieved:
Red base cards are numbered to 1500.
Five base cards per mini box comes out to 10 base cards total. The base cards are numbered to a maximum of 1500.
Here are the hits I pulled:
Brian McCann jersey card, numbered 10/36.
Hanley Ramirez triple relic card, numbered 9/18.
Neftali Felix auto-jersey card, numbered 20/25.
Mike Stanton auto-triple relic card, numbered 2/18.
Considering that the highest numbered card I hit was numbered to 36, I’d say this was a pretty good box. So if you have the money to spend, and are looking for guaranteed hits, this product is for you. I’d give it a rating of 8 out of 10.
