2016 Topps Triple Threads hobby box #1

The last thing I picked up at the October show was two boxes of 2016 Topps Triple Threads. I've had a love affair with TTT since 2013 that I am never able to indulge as much as I would like. My dream would be to bust a few cases every year. Alas, even one double master case would cost more than I currently spend in an entire year on cards. So while that's not something feasible for me I can at least open a box or two every year as well as pick up singles on eBay. Here is the first of the two boxes.

There base parallels were all higher numbers so I will just stick with the hits.


#6/9

Seems like the relics numbered to nine or less generally have a patch. So getting plain white jersey is a little disappointing. 


#11/18

Ick..Yankee hit...*gag*


#67/99

I thought in previous years that the rookie card autos were "extra" hits that replaced a base parallel. I could be wrong about that but it makes me feel like I was shorted a relic as this card replaced the Unity single relic/auto.


#65/75

Maikel Franco is a pretty decent auto to pull. So while the rest of the box was lackluster at least it ended with an ok card.

  1. Triple Threads is weird with their patches sometimes. You would hope they would keep the plain jerseys for the /18 or /36.
