Here we are rounding off Topps’ latest Baseball trifecta with 2013 Triple Threads Baseball, the very latest (but definitely not the last) of their high-end releases!!
As with most of Topps’ high-end output I can’t help but approach it with a high degree of indifference. The designs look nice, as always, but the price bracket is way out of my range and as a result I can’t really muster up a great deal of enthusiasm for it.
In fact I don’t recall ever owning a Triple Threads card! If you’re a player collector and you manage to get hold of one of these cards then I’ve got no doubt they make a nice addition to anyone’s collection – a great centrepiece to show off and base your other cards around.
But deep down I can’t help but see it as a product that panders once more to the ‘hit’ chasers rather than the actual collectors… which is a shame as some of the relics do look rather nice!
Click here for all the details and let me know your thoughts on this, along with some of the high-end releases that are produced all year round, not just by Topps I hasten to add. Are they for you? Or will you just end up passing?
