Trifecta: noun a variation of the perfecta in which a bettor wins by selecting the first three finishers of a race in the correct order of finish
Now unless there are cards of Secretariat out there that I've never seen, I can't see these two worlds meshing together.
OK...enough levity. I know that there are quite a few bloggers out there have built some pretty nice trifectas. One such blog is Drew's cards, which if you follow the link shows off quite an impressive collection of trifectas.
I really haven't done much in the way of collecting trifectas, but while cleaning up around the card room this evening, I came across a RC of Nikolai Kulemin of the Leafs. I knew that I had already the other two pieces of his trifecta in place, so voila! My first trifecta (at least the first one that gets shown on the blog)

Nikolai Kulemin became one of my favorite players a couple of years back, his 30 goal season two years ago along with his excellent defensive work gave me hope that he would become a solid two way player for the Leafs for many years to come. Nikolai was snake bitten last year offensively, only scoring 7 times. That didn't dampen my enthusiasm as far as collecting his cards, and while he has only 1 goal so far this season, he's still playing well in both ends of the rink to reaffirm my belief in him.
It seems to be a lot easier for me to obtain relics/autos of Leafs/Jays, so that may be another angle for me to pursue while collecting the Blue & White. I am pretty sure that I can feature at least a couple of other players here in the not too distant future.
Now, if I could only get my hands on some rainbows....
