2013 eBay purchase #17: Rich's required reading

I'm back today with yet another eBay pickup from this month, and it's a doozy:
Rich Hill 2008 Topps Triple Threads Relics Pairs Rookie-Stars Autographs Gold dual auto-triple jersey (with Sam Fuld) (#25/25)

You might remember this pairing from such cards in my PC as this one, which is slightly more common at 50 copies.  This set me back about $12 shipped as I was once again the only bidder, and it again came from a guy liquidating a ton of 2008 Triple Threads.  I asked him if he had any other Hills from the set available and he said he'd be listing them eventually (hopefully all at once this time so I can save on shipping), because while I'm now at eight of his non-1/1 cards (and 10 with), there's still 10 more (and seven more) that I need, including several more multiplayer versions.  I at least only need one more card pairing Hill with Fuld numbered above one, so that's progress.

Today's card puts Hill at an insurmountable lead of 79 hits and 178 IHAS cards.  I can't wait to get to 100 and 200, and I have a feeling at least the latter will happen fairly soon!

Stay tuned for at least one more eBay pickup if the seller ever gets around to shipping it.
