    2019 Topps Chrome

    2019 Topps Chrome


    24 packs - 4 cards per pack
    2 chrome auto'd cards per box



    I received the following:



    69 unique base cards -- no dupes! 34.5% of the base set of 200



    2 SP - #201 thru 204 - Vlad Jr. and Pete Alonso

    INSERTS/ PARALLELS

    Refractors/Prism Refractors



    8 refractors
    4 prism refractors

    **Refractors (not prism) are marked with the word 'refractor' on the stripe under the number - kind of hard to see if the stripe is dark blue....** I do like the designation!

    Freshman Flash / Future Stars



    Freshman Flash - Kikuchi and Adams
    Future Stars - Reyes, Hingham, and Adames

    1984 Style



    Chapman, Upton, Judge, Acuna,Jr.(going to jaxbraves!)

    Greatness Returns



    Ryan/Verlander

    Orange Refractor



    Sandy Alcantara #ed to 25

    Autos



    Jeffrey Springs



    Adolis Garcia

    Topps Chrome is a premium issue - obviously chrome, obviously very mirrorlike. The cards follow the base set this year as they have in previous years. Chrome looks good and by receiving nearly 35% of the base set of 200, one could conceivably collate a base set with 3 perfect boxes -- could be a stretch, but hey, one can hope. It would probably take 4-6 boxes to complete the base set. Here in O'do the hobby boxes are $110 +/- and the jumbos - with 5 autos, are $220 +/-.

    Chrome should appeal to the set builder and the player collector. Player collectors will have red, blue, gold, orange, green, purple refractors and the same in prism refractors, superfractors 1/1, along with printing plates, a myriad of auto variations, even photo variations. Some of these come 1 in 50k packs.... talk about limited!! That's hitting the lotto!

    In the 24 packs that I received, I believe that I got one insert/parallel in each pack - could be wrong, but I believe that is accurate. So if one is just buying packs, you should pull some inserts and/or refractors - some of which could be pretty rare.

    I like the autos - they are blue Sharpee on card autos. Well done and they look great. There might be some redemption autos - not sure.

    I also like the Greatness Returns inserts - looks cool.

    Overall grade A -- excellent collation.

    Go buy several boxes and send all of the Rays parallels to me!

    Nice review - cards look nice, but probably will pass on early release and wait for discounted blasters around the end of the year!

    I received no Trout base or any Trout insert of any kind. I believe that his card is #200 and I did not get one.

    Nice break and great information Duane! I agree with your comments about the refractors.....one of the card has black as the color where the word refractor is located! Try finding the word refractor on that card! Best regards, David
