A Quick Look At the 2012 Topps Triple Threads Checklist

The 2012 Topps Triple Threads set has a release date of Wednesday Sept. 19, 2012. Triple Threads are one of Topps high end sets with hobby cases retailing for almost $4,000! But you get what you pay for, and Triple Threads packs are loaded with hits. In fact, every pack contains two hits--a numbered auto relic and a numbered relic card.

New inserts for the 2012 set include Triple Threads Flashback Relics which show players current photo alongside their rookie photo plus three relics and Unity Relics where collectors can put together their own triple auto relic cards and triple relic cards. Hank Aaron and Sandy Koufax make their appearance in 2012 as well!
