2010 Topps Triple Threads
Topps recently released a preview of the 2010 Topps Triple Threads Football. This year Topps is adding some interesting relics like Laundry Tags, NFL Shields and Jumbo Jersey Sleeve Patches.
Each box will contain two mini boxes, each containing 6 cards. Each mini box contains 1 Triple Relic #/99 or less, 2 base parallels #/525 or less and 3 base cards #/1350 or less. You will also find 1 Autographed Triple Relic per display box.
The release contains 10 Autographed Triple Relic insert sets, 9 Triple Relic sets, the XXIV set (each card contains at least 24 relics), Laundry Tag Book Cards set and a NFL Shield set. The base set contains 100 cards consisting of current players and legends and there are 5 different parallels for each base card- Sepia (#/450), Emerald (#/299), Gold (#/99), Ruby (#/25) and Platinum (1/1).
I am not a fan of the high-end sets, it seems like to often the cost outweighs the return and they are definitely not created for the set builder. I have to admit though; there are some very cool cards in this set. I love the Team Sleeve Patch cards and the Lombardi cut signature is a keeper, though I would have preferred to see the cut signature card just be the signature and not include the relics
