2016 Topps Triple Threads Offers an Ichiro Triple Take
By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor
Ichiro’s playing career might not be over just yet, but it’s safe to say that it’s winding down. While he’ll be best remembered for his time with the Mariners, some milestones were also reached in New York and Miami.
A 2016 Topps Triple Threads Ichiro jersey card makes a case for all three teams.
Of the 50 Triple Threads Relic Combos cards in the product, 49 of them have three different players. The final one has just Ichiro on all three of his MLB teams. Besides an image of the outfielder with each of the teams, there’s a uniform timeline of sorts with the trio of swatches.
The base version of the card has 36 copies. That number grows with five different parallels: Silver (/27), Emerald (/18), Gold (/9), Sapphire (/3) and Ruby (1/1).
This is far from the only place Ichiro appears in 2016 Topps Triple Threads. It’s not the most valuable either. A variety of autographs and rare jumbo memorabilia cards are also in the product.
