2018 Topps Chrome Hobby Box Break

It feels a little bit like Topps Chrome is getting away from being a truly unique release, and instead being almost a re-release of Flagship now.  The Ohtani craze is still going on, which is causing this release to be at a bit of a premium right now, but it seems to be waning a little bit.  When compared to some of the recent releases, this one seems almost reasonable.

The base set features 200 cards including hot rookies and veterans.  It mirrors the regular flagship release, but has different images.  There are a large number of parallels, as you would expect with a Topps release.  Most of the insert sets included also parallel inserts from the base release, including 1983 Topps, Future Stars, and Superstar Sensations.   A hobby box advertises 24 packs with 4 cards per pack, including 2 autographs per box.

This box contained:

70 Base (35% of 200 card set)
8 Base Refractors
1 Base Purple Refractor
1 Base Negative Refractor
4 Base Prism Refractors
4 1983 Topps
3 Future Stars
2 Freshman Flash
1 Superstar Sensations
1 Rookie Autographs Scott Kingery
1 Rookie Autographs Tyler Wade
