2014 Topps Triple Threads Football CardsBrand: Topps Triple Threads
2014 Topps Triple Threads Football keeps the same format that collectors have come to expect, but with some design tweaks and updates. The high-end release includes two packs, or mini-boxes, per box, and six or seven cards per pack.
Packs fall into two categories in terms of the contents. One version includes a Triple Relic card (#/36 or less) and Triple Threads Rookie Autograph Relic (#/150 or less), along with five base and base parallel cards. The other includes one Autograph Triple Relic (#/99 or less) and one Triple Threads Rookie Jumbo Relic (#/150 or less), in addition to four base and base parallel cards.
Kicking things off with the base set, 2014 Topps Triple Threads Football includes 100 base cards and a variety of parallels. Collectors will find three base cards, numbered to 930 or less, in each pack. Also, one to two base parallels can be found per pack, including Purple (#/299), Emerald (#/150), Gold (#/99), Ruby (#/50), Sapphire (#/25), Onyx (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1).
Base Rookie Auto Relics utilize a design with square jersey pieces, as opposed to the circle pieces from 2013 Topps Triple Threads. The cards are numbered to 99 and include one patch and two swatch pieces, along with an autograph. Many parallels are available for the cards and include Purple (#/70), Emerald (#/50), Gold (#/25), Ruby (#/15), Sapphire Patch (#/10) and "White Whale" Patch Printing Plates (1/1). Onyx Silver Foil, Onyx Gold Foil, Onyx Silver Rainbow Foil, Onyx Gold Rainbow Foil, Pigskin Silver Foil, Pigskin Gold Foil, Pigskin Silver Rainbow Foil, and Pigskin Gold Rainbow Foil are all 1/1 parallel cards and feature a variety of memorabilia combinations.
Triple Threads Auto Relics offer a similar layout to the Base Rookie Auto Relics, with an autograph, one patch piece and two jersey swatch pieces. Numbered to 18, these cards also come in Gold (#/9), Sapphire (#/3), Onyx Patch (1/1), Pigskin Patch (1/1) and "White Whale" Patch Printing Plates (1/1). Triple Threads Jumbo Plus Autograph Relics include a jumbo swatch or patch and are numbered to three. Letter Plus (#/3), Jumbo Plus Onyx (1/1) and Letter Plus Onyx (1/1) present additional parallel options.
Triple Threads Auto Relic Pairs doubles the fun with dual autographs and relic pieces. The base version is numbered to 18 and parallels include Gold (#/9), Sapphire (#/3) and Onyx Patch (1/1). Triple Threads Auto Relic Trios combines the autographs and relic pieces for three players on the same card. The triple autograph cards are numbered to 27 and include Emerald (#/18), Gold (#/9), Sapphire (#/3), Onyx Patch (1/1), Pigskin Patch (1/1) and "White Whale" Patch Printing Plates (1/1).
Not stopping at just three autographs per card, Triple Threads Auto Relic Double Combos feature six autographs and relics per card, with unique die-cuts. The cards are numbered to 27 and include Gold (#/9), Sapphire (#/3) and Onyx Patch (1/1) parallels.
Rookie collectors are treated to more autograph cards with Triple Threads Rookie Autograph Relics. Numbered to 99, they can be distinguished from the Base Rookie Auto Relics because they only have one jersey swatch. Parallels include Purple (#/75), Emerald (#/50), Gold (#/25), Sapphire (#/10) and Onyx Patch (1/1).
Hand-Stamped Autograph Cards, exclusive to Triple Threads, brings the rookie class even closer with hand-stamped jumbo cards and on-card signatures. These oversized cards are each numbered to 25. Triple Threads Transparencies are a case hit and include jumbo rookie signatures on acetate. The clear cards are numbered to 65, and there are also Emerald (#/30) and Onyx (1/1) parallels.
It wouldn't be Triple Threads without plenty of relic cards. Triple Thread Relics and Triple Thread Relic Trios both offer three relics and are numbered to 36. Purple (#/27), Emerald (#/18), Gold (#/9), Sapphire (#/3) and Onyx Patch (1/1) parallels are available. Triple Threads Rookie Jumbo Relics feature a jumbo jersey swatch and print run of 99. Purple (#/75), Emerald (#/50), Gold (#/25), Sapphire Patch (#/10) and Onyx Patch (1/1) offer additional parallel options.
Finally, two rare one-of-one relics round out the product. Triple Threads NFL Shields combine two relics and an NFL Shield Patch. Triple Threads Jumbo Patch Combos utilize a three-panel book card to showcase three players and three jumbo multi-color patches.
