2013 Topps Triple Threads Football comes on strong with some major design changes, almost all of them for the better. From the etched gold foil under sticker autographs to make their appearance more regal, to the use of three circle swatches that almost mimic the much higher end Five Star line, collectors will appreciate these cards. Of course, the iconic die cut sayings that overlay the relic pieces still remain for some of the cards, because it just wouldn’t be Triple Threads without it.
Topps Triple Threads Football fits into our premium cards category. Each master box has two mini boxes. Each mini box contains 7 cards with a low numbered autographed triple relic and a low numbered triple relic card.
Here are all of the cards we pulled.
Marshawn Lynch, front and back
Andrew Luck, Ray Rice
Jerry Rice, LaDainian Tomlinson, Tony Romo
Tony Romo - Purple #/320 & Emerald #/170
Santonio Holmes - Purple #/320, Steve Young - Purple #/320
Quinton Patton Rookie Jumbo Relic - Purple #/75
DeAndre Hopkins Triple Treads Relic #/36
Stedman Bailey Base Rookie Autographed Triple Relic #/99
Le'Veon Bell Rookie Autographed Single Relic #/99
The base card design here is strong with excellent use of gold foil accents. Colored parallels are much more subtle this year as you can tell from our Tony Romo half Rainbow. Hit cards look great.
Quality and Variety of Players
Triple Threads football does have a heavy premiere rookie lean, which is in line with the feel of Triple Threads from years past.
