Hey everyone, got this Triple Threads book card in the mail right before Christmas. I just got around to scanning it, and this cards is a beauty. This is my fourth booklet, and it has a great combination of players on it. From left to right they go Alex Rodriguez, Evan Longoria, Kevin Youkilis, Alex Rios, Nick Markakis, and Wade Boggs. Two Red Sox player, a HOFer, a future HOFer, and Youk made this pickup an easy decision. I bought this particular card however because of the jersey peice for Youk.
As you can see, it is a five color patch, but it is not from any of his regular Red Sox jerseys. After doing a little detective work and looking at several pictures, I have determined that this swatch is from his 2009 All Star Game jersey. More importantly, it is from the laundry tag. While I coldn't confirm this right away, I recently bought some evidence that lead me to this conclusion. I will save that for another post though since I don't have the new card in hand yet.
