2010 Topps Chrome is an above average football card offering that feels one hit shy of being an excellent product.

9th Annual General Poll conducted by NBA.com offers collectors the inside edge when it comes to the potential of the 2010-11 NBA Rookie Class. John Wall, Blake Griffin, Wesley Johnson, Evan Turner, and several surprising players highlight the survey.
Bryce Harper’s Superfractor falls several thousand dollars shy of topping Stephen Strasburg’s Washington Nationals team record. Although the Nationals are a terrible team at the moment, could the hobby gods be sending the sports world a message similar to the one the Pittsburgh Penguins received 5 years ago?
Soon after the Phillies Roy Halladay tossed his way into baseball history against the Reds in Game 1 of the NLDS, fans tossed over 600 ticket stubs from the hurler’s Game 1 No-Hit masterpiece onto eBay.

An amazing Rookie Class and slightly improved card design combine to make 2010 Topps Chrome a substantial upgrade over last seasons. 2010 Topps Chrome is an excellent product that delivers 2 Autographs and a handful of refractors and numbered inserts per $60-$80 box.
It’s not good, it’s not bad, it’s Prestige. If you’re excited to get the 2010-11 NBA rookie class and LeBron wearing a Heat jersey in your hands ASAP, then by all means grab a box of Prestige. 2010-11 Prestige is far from a terrible product, just don’t expect it to re-invent the basketball card.
