The Topps Chrome release has long been an alternative parallel to the flagship Topps set, but this one seems to take it even a little bit further. The base set is only 200 cards, but then you also see inserts matching the regular base set inserts, as well. I’m not sure if that’s really necessary. There are also a lot fewer inserts and parallels than from recent years. This lack of parallels leaves you with a question of value. Base cards don’t really seem to get a lot of respect, and now you get more of them.
The jumbo boxes advertise five autographs per box, but there isn’t much else. The boxes contain 12 packs of 13 cards.
This box contains:
116 Base (58% of set)
12 Base Refractors
6 Base Prism Refractors
1 Base Blue Refractor
1 Base Purple Refractor
