241 Tuesdays: Why buy 1....when you can get 2 for the price of 1????

In my continued pursuit to build a reverse box of 2014 Topps Triple Threads, I won these two Gerrit Cole Unity Jumbo Relic cards for $6.54 delivered.  You just can't beat that with a baseball bat.  These 2 cards completed my reverse box which I successfully built for nearly half the price of a box.

Each different version of the parallels features a different image of Cole on the front


Along with a different blurb on the back.

My running total for the Reverse box challenge of 2 for the price of 1 currently sits at $83 after purchasing
a very low numbered auto/jumbo jersey relic (/10) Jason Grilli
a pair of gold parallel /99 cards (Alvarez and this McCutchen)
an Amethyst /325 parallel (Alvarez)
an Emerald /50 Triple Relic/AUTO (Andrew Lambo)
3 unique players base cards (McCutchen, Cole, Alvarez) including doubles of McCutchen and Alvarez and a free throw in of Mike Piazza
a Gregory Polanco base and amber parallel

2 boxes of 2014 Topps Triple Threads would include
2 Triple Relic/Auto (currently at 1)
2 Auto/Jumbo Relic (currently at 1)
2 Jumbo Relic (currently at 2)
2 Triple Relic (currently at 1)
12 base cards (currently at 7)
8 Parallel cards (currently at 4)

I successfully built a box for almost half price.  Now the challenge is can I build 2 for the price of 1?
