Show #102 Topps Chrome + Finest & Exquisite Go Live
General News Topics:
2012 Topps Chrome baseball came out, and it seems to be an improvement over previous seasons. The biggest hits are the Bryce Harper autographed cards, and Yu Darvish autographed rookie cards. There are lots of parallel cards, which is typical in a Topps Chrome release. Retail Blaster boxes, and value packs have special parallels that are orange and purple. Hobby boxes contain the more rare parallel cards, like red refractors and Superfractors. It also seems like one of the things most manufacturers are doing these days is putting sort print variation cards in almost every set. We’ve come to expect that from Topps but it seems like they’re putting these kind of cards in almost every set they make now. The base card variations in Topps Chrome are extremely rare and include some of the top players in the set, making them relatively valuable online.
