From Gold to Platinum.. Let the Topps Redemptions Roll

I have to admit, my last couple of redemptions have been a real roller coaster ride. First came the epic fail by Panini. Next came a really cool gold-bar-looking (and feeling) 2011 Topps Marquee Billy Butler Museum Collection silver ink signed Billy Butler auto. Today I walked to the mailbox to find that Topps brought the bling yet again.

Instead of gold, this time they delivered some platinum in the form of this Platinum 1 of 1 2011 Topps Triple Threads Carlton Fisk 7-Piece Jersey Autograph:

Considering its a 1/1 card in a premium a brand that contains the word "Threads" in it, I would have liked to have seen a really crazy multicolor patch jersey. But there are a couple of multicolor pieces of game used jersey in the card and overall its a really nice premium auto patch card of a Hall of Famer that was sent to me by the Topps Redemption crew in a very timely manner. And the card is in mint condition, which is always a concern for redemption cards..

I already have a Fisk auto as part of my Hall of Fame Autograph Collection, so this card is most likely headed to eBay auction block. Or if you are interested in trading for it, hit me up and we'll see if we can work something out.
