Fleischer’s Focus: Triple Threads was a monster of a product that has been one of the most heavily broken products of the year. Never a quick and easy product to price, we gathered and analyzed roughly 15,000 secondary market sales over the last month in an effort to provide the most accurate and up to date Triple Threads pricing. Dealers and collectors seem to be having blast breaking – and selling – this year’s product, as the data we’ve gathered indicates that nearly $500,000 has been spent over the last month on Triple Threads secondary market sales.
Olds’ Opinion: Triple Threads is a mainstay and really has been each year since its arrival in 2006. Topps has continued to raise the bar on the high-end memorabilia inclusions here, which is what many of us focus on, and those cards do impress. Depending on how you buy, wax or singles, you could have quite a bit of fun with this high-end product — if you can handle the $100-plus per pack cost. (I, myself, go the singles route.)
