Earlier in the week I stated that I would reverse box a 2014 Topps Triple Threads starting with my Jason Grilli Jumbo Patch Autograph numbered to 10. That card ran me $15 so if you're keeping track that left me $135 to go after the remaining 13 cards. Not bad odds for completing a reverse box.
Well as I was browsing ebay I came across a seller who had several Pirates base cards, 2 Pedro Alvarez parallels, and an Andrew Lambo triple relic autograph numbered to 50. What the heck...why not go for this large lot to help knock off some of the cards. It ended up costing me $26 delivered but brings me to need only 2 base cards, 2 parallels, and 2 more hits with over $100 to spare. Needless to say though I will likely take away a Pedro Alvarez base as I hopefully will not pull any doubles in a box that contains only 14 cards.
Here's the lot
|2014 Triple Threads 8/50 AUTO/RELIC|
The other base cards in the lot were 2 Alvarez, 1 Cole, and 1 McCutchen. As I said above I think I will most certainly replace one of the Alvarez base with either Polanco or Clemente.
