2014 Topps Chrome Mini Football takes the regular Chrome set, points a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids laser at it and blasts it. Okay, Topps HQ might not have fancy shrinking lasers, but you get the point. The angle 2014 Topps Chrome Mini Football is pretty self-explanatory. It's also fairly straightforward. Besides the expected Refractors, the product delivers one rookie autograph per hobby box.

The base set has 220 cards -- 110 veterans and 110 rookies. Rookie cards land one per pack so they're short prints. Like 2014 Topps Chrome, there are also Photo Variations of 25 rookies and 30 veterans. Seeing as how it's Topps Chrome, there are lots of different Refractor parallels: basic Refractors (1:8 packs), Pulsar (1:24), STS Camo (#/99), BCA Pink (#/25), Black (#/15), Gold (#/10), Red (#/5), and Superfractor (1/1). Base cards also have Printing Plates.

For many, one of the biggest draws in 2014 Topps Chrome Mini Football is the one-per-box Rookie Autograph. Some have on-card signatures, others use stickers. They all have eight levels of Refractor parallels, none of which are numbered higher than 150. Select cards also have Rookie Autograph Variations done as Refractors.

Several basic inserts have also been included in the product. 1985 Topps Football (1:24) brings the classic design over with current players. They can also be found as Refractors (#/50), Pulsar Refractors (#/25), Superfractors (1/1) and Autographs (#/15). Fantasy Focus (1:12) spotlights fantasy football standouts. These have Refractor (#/50) and Superfractor (1/1) parallels.

Chrome Rookies Die-Cut (1:24) are easy to identify by their design. While base versions are done with Refractor stock, there are additional parallels: Blue Wave Refractor (#/50), Red Refractor (#/25), Superfractor (1/1) and Autographs (#/15).

The toughest inserts to find in 2014 Topp Chrome Mini Football are 1,000 Yard Club and 4,000 Yard Club. Both are inserted one per case. Each set has a similar parallel structure as well: Red Refractor, Blue Wave Refractor (#/25), Superfractor (1/1) and Red Refractor Autograph.

User Reviews

  1. The card gallery of this product shows the rookies with a specific uniform number. Is the picture a “mock up” of the real product or will the rookies have the “00″ uniform number, like many of the early offerings have in the past?

  2. Brent » These images are mock-ups. Hopefully final cards will have proper jersey numbers by then.

  3. My bad…I didn’t check the estimated release date. I’m sure that they will have the correct uniforms and numbers by then. Thanks Ryan
