Am I Wrong?

Topps Triple Threads is scheduled to be released this coming August and we are beginning to see previews as well as reviews around the blogsphere. While I am not a big fan of Triple Threads, I feel the cost versus reward is not balanced, I do not care for multiple parallels and the biggest turn-off is sticker autographs. Lick-em Stick-ems are bad enough but to use them on a high end product is just atrocious.

Now, having said that, am I a bad person for actually liking some of the hits? The Cut Above Relics set looks pretty decent; who wouldn’t want to pull a Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth cut signature and 3 relics? I personally do not like the books, they are difficult to display in a pleasant manor but it is a cool set nonetheless. Some of the All-Star sets are pretty cool too; lots of variety and the cards are not overflowing with die-cuts and miss-matched relics.

  1. I'm with you 100% on this years Triple Threads. Overpriced but some look great. That Ichiro is one bad @$$ card.
