A couple of months ago, when I was still corrupt and on-the-take, Topps sent me a free box of 2010 Topps Sterling. In that box was a redemption card good for a one-of-one autographed "relic" card of Mike Piazza. Yes, getting a redemption card in a box of cards that retails for $200 sucks, but hey, I didn't pay for it.
Fast forward to today, when I received a package from Topps containing this...
In case you're wondering, yes, that is a one-of-one White Whale card of Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez from 2009 Triple Threads.
So, for all of you who plunked down your $100 for a pack of Triple Scraps back in '09, isn't it great to know, in retrospect, that a 1/1 of three of the Yankees' biggest stars NEVER EVEN MADE IT INTO THE PACKS?
