Triple threads is still stupid

Nice Rice...not. Why guys get all warm and fuzzy in the shorts about this stuff befuddles me.



What I want to know is who greenlights this crap? Other than TTT being pure suckage but Topps making a ton o'cash off it, who approves the inability to keep letters of the same word together. In other words, why do they diecut in pairs?

What kills me is they'll say, "but it's a 20 piece jersey card". No...it's one big jersey piece (or 2) with card board cut outs to make it look that way.

I think the reason for the pairing is that when Topps chops up these jerseys, they do it in equal sized pieces not knowing what cards they'll eventually end up in. I could be wrong since I've never seen a Triple Threads card like this in person, but I'm thinking there's 12 little square swatches in this card where really isn't all that special when you think about it.

I was watching the Xmas story with my 5yr old daughter and when the part came on when he decodes the " be sure to drink ovaltine" came on I realized topps should inlude a FN decoder with any purchase of triple threads to decode there sickening attempt to spell out shi* with GU'S letters I haven't seen many that made a whole lot of fn sense! this stuff is beyond stupid but hey they throw and video tape triple thread breaks wit hpeople chanting triple threads and yelling out MOJO all the while some douchebag and a chick get all intoit so who am I to judge. I just feel sorry for the kids who's parents are pimping this stuff to I truly do. Oh wait topps is going for the Kids market I forgot and they can afford it too! LOL

LMFAO, I know right! Hey I got a box of T206 and Mayo football for xmas Havn't had a chance to post the pics but I didn't do all that bad Got a regular Ryan Howard Auto, Nathan Peidmont framed ato and a Markikas Peidment framed relic ( always pulling Beardy a card it never fails! ) and some cool SP'S and mini's one was a Babe ruth mini gold chrome /50. The Mayo hits were Both Pettgrew Could be worse! A mini framed auto wit hhis jersey number on the auto and a fraed relic. I think I'll be putting both those on Ebay unless you know someone who's intersted. Keep an eye out for my site I'll be posting a lot mre now that I'm settled. I don't see Griffey Jr. on the checklis for the T206's wats up with that BS! LOL

course Pettegrew is injured so now is probably not a great time to sell them. What do you think?
