REVIEW:2018 Topps Triple Threads (1/1 Found)

Topps Triple Threads makes it's return once again.

This high end product comes 'a poppin' with the greatest threads in the hobby. I haven't had much success in the past with Triple Threads but maybe this year is the year.

Check it out

In every box of 2018 Topps Triple Threads, you will find two mini boxes. There are 7 cards per mini box with two his in each. Boxes run roughly $190.

I really like this years base card design. Very elegant. As always the base cards are extra thick and the foil used is rainbow. Combine that with the clean design with a featured player in the forefront and you have a solid look. I think the only thing I would want from a high end base set, is having all of the base cards numbered for added value.

There are 100 cards in the non autograph part of the base set and includes veterans and legends.

Triple Threads has parallels of course like every product. This is Amber /199.

These are Amethyst /299 and Emerald /259
  

Other parallels to find include,Gold /99, Onyx /50, Sapphire /25, Ruby 1/1, and Printing Plates 1/1.

Without inserts, let's take a look at the threads. I mean, the hits.

Triple Threads Single Jumbo Relic. This one is a Emerald parallel /18 of George Springer.

Here is one of the base rookie autographs. Not a big name find in Tyler Mahle.

My next hit was a single relic autograph of Marcell Ozuna. This is a silver parallel, look at the background color, numbered to 75.

And my final hit, by far my best hit from Triple Threads ever, this 1/1 Triple Threads relic Ruby of Buster Posey. It was already a beautiful card even withou the 1/1 tag. Look at those nasty patches.

Other hits I didn't hit but you could include,
  • Rookie Autograph
  • Triple Threads Autograph
  • Triple Threads Autograph Relic
  • Triple Threads Jumbo Plus Autograph Relic Book

OVERALL: Once again, despite my big pull, I have to warn that this is a high risk high payback product. I haven't had much success in the past but have seen many many who have. This time I got a bit lucky with the 1/1 because up to that point it was getting ugly.

As for the product itself, beautiful. I don't care if it has sticker autographs or not, it looks really nice and I like the layout for the autographed relic cards.

If you can't afford to break a whole box, try to find someone who may sell you one mini box or you can jump on into a box break. I suggest using Midwest Box Breaks who have a Triple Threads one going on now with affordable prices. Did I mention they always pull the heat? Did you see their last break of it? Your mail box will burn down with these guys fire.. Go grab yourself a spot in the next 2018 Topps Triple Threads Break HERE.

Please make sure to take a minute out to thank Topps for providing this box for me to review and to be able to add cards to the Topps Of The Month promotion. Enter now!.  Follow Topps on all social media sites and visit their SITE, as well.

  1. Gorgeous Posey! Excellent pull! I'd love to bust a box of these but don't do high risk breaks. I can't justify $50 worth of cards while spending $175 on a box.

  3. Thats cool! I don't think I'd ever buy a box of these, but I'd love to open them just once. Then probably disappointed by what I end up pulling.

    1. Well to be honest I haven't had much success til this box. Posey saved this one otherwise it was a normal break for me up to that point.
