2014 Topps Chrome Football Rookie Autographs Guide

2014 Topps Chrome Football Rookie Autographs Guide

For nearly a decade, Topps Chrome Football Rookie Autographs have been some of the most popular cards in the hobby. Frequently boasting on-card signatures and a lot of different types of Refractor parallels, they're the kinds of cards that are highly sought after on a broad scale yet still, usually, relatively affordable. The 2014 Topps Chrome Football Rookie Autographs arrive with a large checklist with the season's top first-year talent. However, a large amount of short prints are making things tough for both player collectors and those opening large quantities of product.

Shop for 2014 Topps Chrome Football Rookie Autographs on eBay.

2014 Topps Chrome Football has 73 Rookie Autographs. This doesn't count parallels or other signed inserts like the 1985- and 1965-style cards. Cards also have eight different numbered Refractors, none of which are numbered higher than 150. With the set's large print run, it's making colored Rookie Autographed Refractors much harder to pull.

The most unique signature in the set belongs to Johnny Manziel. His base autographs (and the occasional Refractor) not only comes with a full signature (noticeable when you line up the other autographs and notice how many players are resorting to just initials) but a "Money Manziel" inscription as well.

The vast majority of 2014 Topps Chrome Football Rookie Autographs are signed on-card. Seven players have sticker autographs. This includes Henry Josey who has hard-signed versions as well. Of the sticker autographs, Jimmy Garoppolo is the biggest name.

Redemptions are even more sparse. As far as base autographs go, there might not be any outside of Refractors (and even those are limited). If there are any, it's Carlos Hyde and Tre Mason. At this point, neither have had any regular versions listed on eBay, though, so they might not exist.

2014 Topps Chrome Football Rookie Autograph Short Prints

Although Topps hasn't confirmed the existence of short prints, it looks like nearly a third of the Rookie Autographs are significantly tougher to pull. According to case breaker brentandbecca, who opened 24 cases and spoke with other breakers, there are 20 short prints:

  • 115 Derek Carr
  • 116 Bruce Ellington
  • 117 Odell Beckham Jr.
  • 120 Jadeveon Clowney
  • 133 Martavis Bryant
  • 134 Storm Johnson
  • 138 Sammy Watkins
  • 139 Tom Savage
  • 144 AJ McCarron
  • 149 Brandin Cooks
  • 158 Carlos Hyde
  • 159 Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
  • 164 Tre Mason
  • 169 Johnny Manziel
  • 173 Teddy Bridgewater
  • 185 Mike Evans
  • 187 Blake Bortles
  • 209 Bradley Roby
  • 213Eric Ebron
  • 219 Paul Richardson

Of these, not a single base autograph of either Carlos Hyde or Tre Mason were listed on eBay during the set's first week of release. Combined with a very limited number of Refractors, it could be that neither of the pair have regular autographs, just Refractors.

While not quite as tough, it also appears that there are the following are also harder to pull:

  • 114 Davante Adams
  • 124 Kelvin Benjamin
  • 130 Jared Abbrederis
  • 151 Logan Thomas
  • 150 Jimmy Garoppolo
  • 175 Aaron Donald
  • 177 Jarvis Landry
  • 195 Jason Verrett
  • 203 C.J. Mosley
  • 204 Darqueze Dennard
  • 206 Zach Mettenberger

  1. 2014 Topps Chrome sucks this year. Open up a case and a half and all I’ve got are mulitples of the same autos everyone is getting in hobby. No base limit means huge print runs of guys you don’t want. Save your money and buy on secondary singles. This is what I got from a case and a half: ALL BASE AUTOS TOO!!!!

  2. I feel your pain man. We got 4 cases and pulled 4 Jake Matthews sticker autos, (3) Bishop Sankeys, (2) Henry Josey, (2) Connor Shaw and a bunch of other no names that I would rather forget.

    I well understand its not possible or highly unlikely to break even, but Topps knows who is and isn’t going to be big. There should be a better chance of pulling guys like Mike Evans, OBJ, Sammy Watkins, etc. etc. versus guys like Lache Seastrunk who just has a funny name. They need to do a better job of getting autos of potential stars like Jeremy Hill, Tre Mason, Donte Moncrief etc. instead of putting complete crap in the product!

  3. I LOVE how Storm Johnson is on the SP list. The others are probably 17-18 of the most desirable rookies and then…… Storm Johnson. Real nice Topps. Plausible deniability.
