Happy Thanksgiving EVERYONE! For the holiday's, I'm sharing a picture of a large booklet card. I can't believe someone at Topps gave this design the green light, but here it is. 2010 Topps Triple Threads XXIV Legend Relics #TTXXIVL2 (SN1)

I obtained this Rickey in a lot of about 100 Oakland A's and don't know the origin of it. It measures 3 5/8" by 2 3/8" and is printed on heavy paper, not card stock. Front and back are shown. Available, if anyone is interested.

I bought a Dodger "set" of these that had around 1009-150 players and maybe Padres too. I think they were just a collector made, "broder" type issue. Although I remember mine to be slightly smaller than standard card size, but it's also been a while since I have seen them.

a mini "set"... here's all 3 of these 2010 Topps Triple Threads Sapphire Speed Demons (SN3). Sad that Ellsbury's bat swatch is out of alignment on 1/3. And Rickey's swatch ain't so great on that one either. Rickey's swatch is A's and cool on 2/3, but Crawford's is kinda lame. Although Rickey's swatch is very odd on 3/3, I think I like that one best.

“The Grand Prize will be awarded to the person who submits a Ricky Henderson player card with his signature. Only one such card will be printed and distributed.”

The earliest known 1/1 Rickey in the world came in a bag of 1982 Granny Goose Potato Chips ! Wow…

Here's some additional info about the 1982 Granny Goose set. I just realized that I have one of these proof sets! :)

Does anyone find the number of teams Henderson played for a distraction or nuisance or do you just collect only a certain team represented?

I am happy that the Dodgers had him on the team to add another "cameo" Hall of Famer, but makes picking up his Dodger stuff tough. I do have 1 certified Dodger auto card and that may be all I ever own.
