2017 Topps Triple Threads Baseball – Product Review

THE REVIEW

Manufacturer: Topps

Product: 2017 Topps Triple Threads Baseball

PRICE: $195/box

I can’t keep up with all the releases, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do a review right?

I was able to get into a break and do a few personal boxes of my favorite baseball product year to year. What do I like about this product? I love the thick stock, the slight changes to the design, the chase for huge deca books, white whales, and triple relic autos.

The design was kicked up a notch this year with more of that holofoil base cards with some colored parallels, like emerald, sapphire, amber, onyx, gold, wood, ruby, and white whale

I also love the books and fun great patches. Mind you there are still some “napkins” as John would say from Sports Card Investors. That would be the only real disappointing this about this set.

If the price were to drop I think this set would have more legs and command great money after the first few weeks of release. It was followed rather quickly by Bowman Chrome and the market just deflated. That and the product did have a lot of redemptions. So much so, when you saw one you knew you were likely to land a huge hit… that isn’t true everytime but a lot of the decabooks were redemptions.

Here is a picture of a couple hits that were crazy. One from a break with Layton Sports Cards, the other from boxes I got from The Card Shop in Omaha. I think I did really well.

2 of the 4 possible White Whales of Mike Trout.

OVERALL RATING (Like, Love, Hate)

LOVE IT.
