Default Are the white whale cards from Triple Threads printing plates?

Does every card in Triple Threads have a white whale verison? Is it a printing plate? If so, is it the Magenta plate, yellow plate, black plate or cyan plate?

Not EVERY card has a whale.
Yes they are printing plates (or press plates forgive the semantics)
There is one for each COLOR plate, so there are 4 for each card whales are made for,
despite beckett only listing 1 item

http://www.beckett.com/search/?term=...e&tmm=extended
3759 items listed in beckett
triple threads white whale refine for card youre looking for.

they also accidentally listed a few as "White What" and no Im not kidding

Although somone recently asked about 2006 triple threads,
and that one admitteldy did not look like a plate and it seemed consistent thru the run for that year. Something may have changed over the years.

adding a few examples (yellow black magenta cyan)
