2013 Topps Chrome Baseball CardsBrand: Topps Chrome
2013 Topps Chrome Baseball returns with its familiar mix of Refractor rainbows and rookie autographs, along with a few new wrinkles.
The 2013 Topps Chrome Baseball base set includes players from both the 2013 Topps Series 1 and Series 2 Baseball sets. Veterans and rookies share the checklist. Like last year, there will also be base set variation short prints. Base cards have nine Refractor parallels: Refractors, X-Fractors, Blue (#/199), Black (#/100), Sepia (#/75), Gold (#/50), Red (#/25), Atomic (#/10) and SuperFractor (1/1). Atomic Refractors and SuperFractors are hobby exclusives along with Printing Plates. There are also Auto Patch Variations (#/10).
Rookie Autographs lead the common chase. Signed on-card, they come with a very similar parallel structure as the base set. While there are no X-Fractor Rookie Autographs, basic Rookie Refractor Autographs are numbered to 499. All other Refractors are numbered to the same numbers as the base set Refractors.
2013 Topps Chrome Baseball has a new die-cut insert called Chrome Connections. The cards are shaped in such a way that collectors can fit them together in different combinations. Autographed and Relic versions are numbered to 25 or less.
Sticking with the die-cut theme are Back-to-Back Autographs. The double-sided cards have a pair of autographs and are printed on Refractor stock. Numbered to 5 and only in hobby packs, the cards use sticker autographs.
More first-year players sign for Red-Hot Rookies. The ten-card checklist includes only the top 2013 rookies. Autographs are done on-card. Each is numbered to 25.
The 1972 Topps Baseball design is given the Chrome treatment for its own insert set of current players. Autographs come numbered to 25.
Other autographed inserts in 2013 Topps Chrome Baseball include Triple Autographs (#/5) and Autographed Chrome Buybacks (#/10). The Ultimate Chase program from 2013 Topps Series 1 and Series 2 Baseball continues. Random boxes come with a Divison Die-Cut Box Loader (#/25). Printed on foil stock and cut in the shape of a division flag, the cards have five sticker autographs, one player from each team.
Random Refractor Hot Boxes are filled entirely with parallels. Collectors can also find redemptions for uncut sheets of Refractors and X-Fractors.
