Brand: Topps Triple Threads
Card number: 90 (serially numbered 405/625)
Parallel set: Sepia
At the time of this post, I have never opened a pack of Triple Threads. As such, this card must have arrived either via trade or a eBay/Listia purchase (I've since forgotten). The front of the card is nice enough, even though I think the serial number stamp takes away from the overall appearance. This particular card is actually numbered out of 625 meaning it is a Sepia parallel.
For the record, here are the various base card types in 2011 Topps Triple Threads:
Regular base #/1500
Blue Sapphire #/25
Printing Plates #/1
Each of the parallel sets mimics the entire 100 card base set - in other words, there are a LOT of parallels in Triple Threads.
As for the back of the card, it's fairly dull. I guess Topps (and other companies) worry less about card design when making "high end" cards. I know many people that buy sets like this simply chuck the base cards without a second glance so it's sort of hard to blame Topps for also not caring (though one might say that's a chicken and egg argument - maybe high end buyers don't care because Topps seems to not care).
