2010 Topps Triple Threads Baseball

Scheduled release date for 2010 Topps Triple Threads Baseball is set for the week off 8/23/2010.  The product will have a similar feel and configuration with past Triple Threads releases, but with a few new added twists.
Book cards play a big role in 2010 Topps Triple Threads and one of the new inserts available are the high end Legends Dual 'Cut Above" Relics 1/1 Cards (see Ruth/Cobb below). Many of the new cards that Topps hyped on their sell sheet for 2010 Topps Triple Threads were 1/1 cards, which makes for a great looking sell sheet, but the odds are steep to actually pull one from this expensive SRP product. I would have liked to see them offer more high end autograph/game used memorabilia cards that weren't all 1/1 cards.



Topps had some sort of deal worked out with the MLB, because they were able to secure almost every 2009 All-Star Jersey. Were these game used? Hmmmm, I'm thinking most or many of these were from the "pre-game" events such as the Home Run Derby, where the players are on the field in uniform, even if they are not competing in the event. I might have missed it, but I didn't see anything from Topps that said the All-Star cards in 2010 Triple Threads were actually 'game used'.

  2. :) With how hot the 2010 stuff has been so far, you might want to pre-order it just in case!
