Trophy tom right there if there is such a thing. A Tom is a Tom in most rights but having 3 beards is an extra bonus.

So did you recognize him in the pics with having 3 beards? Seems like he would have to of been close to 2 to be recognizable in pictures from the beards. That would put this bird at 5+ years old if so. It would be hard to recognize turkeys unless there is a unique quality to them and the 2 extra beards may work but at a mature age.
