Say What?

Topps Triple Threads sets have had some questionable quotes. Some just make you scratch your head trying to figure out the connection with the athlete and then there are some that leave you dumbfounded how they ever made it to the pack out phase.

This 2014 Topps UFC Knockout Ronda Rousey Triple Threads showed up last December. Chris Harris from Stale Gum wrote a post about it after the card sold on Decembers 11th for $260. The design is definitely set up to fail from the get go.
Just a change in the fabric color that is used and the statement looks like something else.

Since that one has shown up four more copies have sold ranging from $200 to $350. By far the version that sold in December is the most offensive in appearance but Topps did what they could to make sure that once it was seen, it could not be unseen.


  1. I feel weird giggling at this one lest I get my ass clobbered thirty seconds into the first round.

    And by thirty, I mean three.

  2. Really does make you wonder about quality control sometimes, doesn't it?
