Default Opinion on this card: Ibrew Iammer vs. Hebrew Hammer

I almost pulled the trigger on this but I saw the damage and decided against it. It went for what I might have paid if it were undamaged.

Anyway, any opinions on this 2012 TTT Wood?

Trash? Steal? About right?



2012 Topps Triple Threads Ryan Braun Auto 3 CLR Patch Wood 1 1 Milwaukee Brewers | eBay


Here's an undamaged card of the same design for reference:

those wood cards and die cuts have never been 100% perfect. there was a ginter wood a few years back that was destroyed when it was cut, but the paper backing held it together. it was still inserted into a RIP.

it detracts a tiny bit from the card, IMO, but a serious braun collector wouldn't care.

I would agree with bus and his opinion. I've been watching listings for the wood 1/1's for months, and they are pretty popular.

Holy shite! I was watching that one as well and almost pulled the trigger. I didn't even catch that. I would never have bid knowing that. Those cards are known for some imperfections but that is unacceptable and I'm a huge Braun fan. Bought this one yesterday instead anyway for the same price. Do love those woodies though.

Almost looks like a giant "H", so it kinda still works.
