2011 Topps Triple Threads Miguel Cabrera Patch Card

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday.  It's been a great day here in central North Carolina.  I got some great work in on the lawn this afternoon and am enjoying the debut of Mizzou in the SEC this evening.  I am making two blog posts tonight.  This is the first and usual blog post I make a few times a week and my other post will be something special I am going to do for the next couple of months leading into 2013.

I spent a little time this week working on adding to my Miguel Cabrera collection.  I've picked up several good Cabrera pieces over the summer and thought this card was a great addition.

The Triple Threads cards usually have print runs out of 36, 18, 9, 3, or 1.  The lower the print run the better the jersey and patch pieces attached to the card.  While this is not an autographed version of a Triple Threads card, it is a print run of just 3 and is completely made of patches.  The 5X and A on the top row, along with the ST and A on the bottom row, all appear to be apart of the same blue and orange patch.  Meanwhile, the LL and R on the right side of the card are another patch piece with white, blue, and orange.  This is by far my best relic card I have picked up of Cabrera and a definite upgrade over the other version of this card already in my collection which has a print run of 36.  I also have the autographed version out of 18.
