2010 Triple Threads Mickey Mantle Roger Maris Cut Relic

One of the huge product hits has been pulled from 2010 Topps Triple Threads Baseball, a spectacular Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris 'Cut Above" Dual Autograph Relic card. It's currently the most watched trading card on eBay and has New York Yankee collectors salivating at the thought of owing this gem.

The 2009 Triple Threads Baseball Set didn't go without controversy when hobby bloggers and collectors were concerned about the authenticity of a 2009 Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig Dual Autograph Relic. Topps probably made 100% sure this time around that they got the real deal on all their high end cut autographs that were included into 2010 Triple Threads Baseball. Some of the other key cut signatures in the product are: Babe Ruth /Ty Cobb, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. 
The cut signature of Roger Maris appears to be from a letter or piece of paper because you can see "Best Wishes" inscribed above his autograph. Mantle's auto might be from a picture or perhaps an old signed baseball card. Both are very clear, it's just a bummer Topps wasn't able to include Mantle's full signature because part of the 'M' in Mickey and the 'E' in Mantle are cut off from the border of the card.
