Over the years, Topps Chrome has become one of the hobby's most dependable brands. Relying on a nice mix of shiny base cards, colorful refractors and autographed rookie cards, the lineup caters to a broad mix of collectors. 2012 Topps Chrome Baseball sticks largely with what's familiar and steps it up with a few new wrinkles. Of the new content, die-cut designs lead the way. The Dynamic Die Cut checklist has 50 cards. Inserted just one per hobby box, individual singles are a tough find. The die-cut theme continues with Cut From the Same Cloth, double-sided dual autographs. Of course, 2012 Topps Chrome Baseball still boasts the plentiful Refractors, which come in nine different designs. Every third hobby case has a Refractor hot box. At least 25 rookies have autographed variations, which also come with Refractor rainbows.

Product Configuration: 24 packs per box, four cards per pack
Price Point: Low- to Mid-End Baseball Card
Target Audience: Chromies, Refractor Collectors, Autograph Collectors, Player Collectors, Set Builders, Die-Cut Card Fans

Product Review

2012 Topps Chrome Baseball Product Review

Reviewed by Rodney Ashe

Good: Great combination of current veterans and rookies, base design is clean and solid, different varieties of autographs which are die cut, rookie and buyback autographs are on-card, base set variations make another appearance.

Bad: It's challenging and costly to complete every aspect of the base and insert sets, many autographs use stickers, finger prints show easily, no past players or Hall of Famers, like other recent Topps Chrome sets, cards are prone to warping.

The Bottom Line: 2012 Topps Chrome Baseball is a mid-end product that many collectors will be interested in given its appearance, cost, and brand name. With 24 packs of just four cards per pack, you may not get many cards, but the chance of pulling a big-time autograph should keep collectors coming.

Staff Rating:
4.3 / 5.0

Card Design: 4.0/5.0

The base card design looks the same as the last several Topps Chrome products: shiny with a clean, solid look. This is not a bad thing, but it would be nice to see some sort of change. Hopefully Topps has something on the table for next year's release. It is nice to see base set variations as it adds more of a challenge to put together a master base set.

Refractor parallels are extremely sharp. I love the Dynamic Die Cuts. They are very colorful and attractive. It's too bad they fall just one per box.

The good news is that rookie autographs are signed directly on the card. Unfortunately, the same can not be said for the other autograph sets in this product. Topps should try to go the route of more on-card autographs than using stickers for the brand.

Checklist: 4.5/5.0

The 2012 Topps Chrome Baseball checklist has 220 cards. The best veteran players are included as well as the major rookies like Bryce Harper and Yu Darvish. Returning again are base variation cards, this time with 20 players.

This product is ideal for collectors who like rookies and rainbow parallels. There are many different autograph inserts but no base relic sets. Other than the Rookie Reprint Autographs, there are no other past players or Hall of Famers included in this product. Hopefully Topps can include them in future releases.

Value: 4.5/5.0

At about $75 per box, the price is very reasonable based on what is included in the product and what you can potentially pull. It is worth the risk in order to pull some of the major hits, which are highlighted by autographs of Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Yu Darvish, Albert Pujols and Ken Griffey Jr. There are many more All-Star and top prospect autographs in this product. The base variations are good for a little added value as well.

The Fun Factor: 4.0/5.0

Although it may not have a lot of cards per pack, 2012 Topps Chrome Baseball is still a fun box to break. The hits are the biggest selling point. There is not a lot of variety when it comes to the inserts, other than colored Refractor parallels and the one die-cut insert. Either way, collectors should have a blast busting this box open.

Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

User Reviews

  1. Looks nice this year, as always, and the die cut cards should be a nice addition

  2. Not a fan of the shiny stuff, but as always it has a solid rookie auto checklist. I can do without the die-cut inserts, but I love the Chrome Encounters design.

  3. I’ve bought two boxes of this product and the best card I got is a Anibal Sanchez sepia refractory. I’ve got more doubles per box than any other this year. Chrome is usually a nice product but this year Topps really screwed it up.

  4. The third Pack I got of a chrome I got a sepia refractor and I also got a Tyler Pastorknicky.
    3 = 1 auto and refrctor (my theory)

  5. I absolutely love the chrome cards. This is probably my favorite of all the Topps cards. I can’t buy as many because of the higher price, but the quality is unbeatable!

  6. Topps Chrome has always been my favorite product. In 2011, I got a box of Chrome and pulled a Mark Trumbo auto in my first pack, and since then I’ve been hooked. I’ve bought 2 boxes of 2012 Chrome and about 15 packs. In that, I pulled a Darvish base auto, a Montero auto, a Darvish blue auto /199, and a Jordan Pacheco atomic auto /10, so I’d definently give this product 5 stars. I hope Topps continues this product for a long time, and I’m sure I’ll still be buying every year to come.

  7. I have been out of collecting for awhile , but I wanted to pick up my newborn son a few cards to get his collection growing, I picked up a few packs to Topps Chrome, these cards look awesome, I was so blown away I went a pulled out my cards from the 90’s my Topps Black golds and Crome , these cards are so much better, I love the refractors and how thick these cards feel, which I would have pulled a auto or relic card for my son, Guess I will have to try again

  8. These are very cool cards. True, every smudge and fingerprint shows, so before I put them away I wipe them off carefully. The better care I take, the better return down the road. I really like the diecuts and the different color refractors. The last time I broke open a pack, I got a Bryce Harper orange refractor. Way cool, dude.

  9. the 2012 topps chrome MLB licensed set is the best set on the market
    i am working on one player from the set
    i bought one pack and decided to get one player from the pack

    i have these..cards…of that player
    regular card
    regular refractor
    orange refractor
    purple refractor
    blue refractor
    gold refractor
    x-factor

    and these autographed refractors…
    regular refractor auto
    blue refractor auto
    black refractor auto
    i want the rest…..

  10. 3 boxes in and still no harper or darvish auto but this is still my favorite baseball product by far. love the chrome
