$100 Per Pack?

As I was sitting at a table at a local card show that I was splitting with a friend, I was talked into buying a box of Topps Triple Threads. Boxes of Triple Threads at the shop are $190 and each box contains two packs of cards. That's right, two packs for $190! We split it three ways so I actually put $63 or so into the packs. Up until that point in my life, I had never paid more than $3.50 or so for a pack of modern cards. Opening the packs certainly was exciting, much like doubling down on 11 against a dealers 8 in Vegas and waiting to see what card you get. I probably won't be buying anymore Triple Threads anytime soon, but it was fun. Here are the highlights from the two packs.
