2011 Topps Chrome USA Autograph Redemptions Clarified
Topps has clarified exactly what collectors will receive when they pull USA Baseball redemption cards from 2011 Topps Chrome Baseball. The cards read, "You have just received a set of 2011 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team Autograph Cards." It sounds pretty cool, and they are. But just don't expect the whole set.
The redemptions are good for a pack with five or six autographs, not 22. Although some might not be too happy with the choice wording used on the cards, Topps also pointed out that the USA autographs are bonus hits, offered beyond the suggested two autographs per hobby box.
Like regular Topps Chrome cards, the USA autographs also have several parallels: Refractors, Blue Refractors, Gold Refractors, Atomic Refractors, Red Refractors, Printing Plates and Superfractors.
