The Triple Threads arm of Topps is highly complex with lots of parts and tons of parallels. Due to the large number of unique sets, this stuff can get pretty confusing. 2009 Topps Triple Threads contains a 138-card base set and a wide range of insert sets featuring cards of retired, veteran, and rookies alike. Most of the sets come with a variety of parallels, which means there’s a lot to chase. Key RCs in this release include: Fernando Martinez, David Price, and Rick Porcello.

From the design perspective, 2009 Topps Triple Threads really isn’t unlike other Triple Threads releases. With minor differences from set to set, most of this stuff looks pretty much the same: die cuts with relic embeds and autographs but that appears to be the brand image of Triple Threads. Its design predictability sets it apart from other sets. The different sets offer plenty of options for collectors. If you collect a player in this set, there’s a really good chance you’ll be able to add at least something. The set design is also quite nice. With the exception of Plates, Wood parallels, and cards 1-100 in the base set, every card appears to have a refractor-like finish, which is always pleasing to the eye and they scan really well. The disadvantage is that if you’re an ardent player collector, there’s a lot to bite off and chew here. If you’re a set builder, the low print runs are going to pose major challenges. Given the volume of cards produced for 2009 Topps Triple Threads, you can easily get away with just getting one card of your guy and calling it a day. For those who want to go a little further, you have options, lots of options.
