N F L Triple Threads
2 mini boxes - 7 cards per mini box
Every mini box contains an auto'd relic and a relic card - one of which is a Triple Relic!
I received these:
Base cards: 6
Forte, Newton, Flacco, P. Manning, Hilton, and 'the stomper' - Suh
Triple Threads is a premium issue and the cards are super thick. The image and background on the base cards is a bit dark for my taste. I do like the Triple Threads logo... pretty good looking! The reverse of the card has person stats, '13 stats, and career stats. Also on the reverse is a writeup called Triple Take - 3 highlights of the player's career.
I believe the base set is 100 cards. I'm not sure if there are historical players included - the 6 base I received have no retired players among them.
This could be a fun set to assemble and collect. One will need to purchase a pile of master boxes or chase them on the 'bay!

Sweet card with a fantastic 5 color patch piece - part of the Steelers logo!
Triple Threads is a great issue for the player collector - not so much for the set builder. With several numbered parallels of each card - you should be happy with the chase. I still contend that a premium issue should have on card autos and not stickers - save the stickers for the base sets.
Lots of work went into the design of the Triple Threads with each card having a good amount of foil imprinting.
The Archer Steeler patch piece sealed the deal for me as far as being a very good issue -- Overall grade for Triple Threads A.
Go buy several mini boxes and hopefully you'll pull an even better patch piece than I did!
