Topps Chrome Football is one of the brands in the hobby that found its identity in the hobby a long time ago. That's one of the big reasons it's, historically, one of the most popular releases of the year. 2013 Topps Chrome Football sticks with its most popular parts, rookie autographs and Refractors. But that's not to say there isn't a lot of other components that work along side them.

The 2013 Topps Chrome Football base set has 220 cards. The checklist is split almost evenly between veterans (111 cards) and rookies (109 cards). The ever-expanding Refractor rainbow hits double digits. Every base card has 12 levels of parallels. Basic Refractors are the most common, falling 1:3 packs. Blue Wave Refractors switch to the main release after being an exclusive bonus for autograph redemption card holders in 2012. Other Refractors include: Military Camo (#/499), BCA Pink (#/399), Prism (one per hobby box), Black (#/299), Blue (#/199), Sepia (#/99), Gold (#/50), Red (#/25) and SuperFractors (1/1). Every base card also has four different one-of-one Printing Plates. Base set variations include 30 veterans and 25 rookies.

Rookie Autographs offer upgraded versions of the base cards. More than 40 first-year players are signing for the set, including E.J. Manuel, Geno Smith, Eddie Lacy and Manti Te'o. Cards have a mix of on-card and sticker autographs. Like the base cards, Rookie Autographs have several Refractor parallels, although not quite as many. Parallels include basic Refractors (#/150), Military Camo (#/99), BCA Pink (#/75), Black (#/25), Prism (#/15), Gold (#/10), Red (#/5) and SuperFractors (1/1). Rookie variations from the base set also have autographed variations.

Dual Rookie Autographs (#/30) and Triple Rookie Autographs (#/15) are extremely tough pulls but promise multiple signatures.

Relics are light in 2013 Topps Chrome Football. However, there are Rookie Autograph Patches. Numbered to 50, the hobby-exclusive inserts have both a signature and a patch piece from a player-worn jersey.

Like 2013 Topps Football, the release showcases some past Topps designs to give rookies a retro vibe. 1959 Topps Football and 1986 Topps Football have three levels of Refractor parallels, including autographs that are numbered to 15. 1969 Topps Football inserts come with regular, Refractor (#/99) and hobby-only Refractor Autograph versions. All signatures in these retro sets are on-card. The 1965 Topps Football Tall Boys design also returns, although only with a basic Chrome spin.

Chrome Rookie Die-Cuts bring some added flash to the 2013 rookie class. Basic cards come with Refractor card stock. Parallels include Blue (#/50), Red (#/25), Autographs (#/15) and SuperFractors (1/1). Autographs and SuperFractors are only available in hobby packs.

2013 Topps Chrome Football Product Review

Reviewed by Jeremy Sebastian

Good: On-card autographs, lots of colored parallels, tons of rookies.

Bad: Small base set, one autograph per box, cards warp easily.

The Bottom Line: Topps Chrome always has the feel of an upper-end product without having to pay a ton for a box. The mix of Refractor parallels are very nice. Most of the autographs are signed on-card, which is a huge plus.

Staff Rating:
4.3 / 5.0

Card Design: 5.0/5.0

The card design in 2013 Topps Chrome is outstanding. Regular Topps is almost always a smooth-looking product. When you add Chrome to it, it makes for an attractive base set. There are also so many different versions of Refractors for player collectors to chase after, including some colored parallels that you don't typically find in other releases, like Camo and Pink. The Blue Wave and Prism Refractors have an awesome design.

The insert sets are excellent, specifically the die-cuts. The only downside to these is that they're prone to bent corners since there are so many edges.

A lot of the inserts are designed as throwbacks Topps sets from past decades, which gives a nice call to the past. The autographs all look very clean and neat with a nice chunk of the card faded to white so the players autograph jumps out at you.

Also, most of the regular rookie autographs are on-card, which is a huge plus and quite uncommon given the recent trend of sticker autographs.

Checklist: 4.5/5.0

The checklist in Topps Chrome is solid. You have a set that focuses on rookie with first-year players taking up more than half of the base set. While 2013 Topps Chrome Football does a good job making sure all the star players are included in this set, the small size means some deserving players are left out.

The rookie autograph checklist is nice, as most of the bigger named rookies have autographs in this release. A handful of the base and rookie cards have SSP Variations that fall around 1:10 boxes.

Value: 3.0/5.0

Considering Topps Chrome isn't too pricey, the value isn't too bad. Unfortunately, when you only have one hit per box, you almost have to pull a bigger named autograph to have good value out of your box.

One of the nicest things about Chrome is that certain Refractors carry a hefty price tag, so the possibility lies that you could make your money back on something other than just the hits from the box.

The Fun Factor: 4.5/5.0

Topps Chrome usually produces a product that is fun to open, solely because of the amount of parallels that you come across. I noticed when I was opening this box that almost every pack had something in it, whether it was a hit, a Refractor or an insert. There were only two or three packs that were all base. The only downside to this release is that because there's only one hit per box, you can lose a little of your excitement if you happen to pull your autograph in the first few packs.

This was the last great Topps Chrome football product in my opinion. The number of refractors and numbered cards you got for the price, not to mention numbered, on-card auto in each box. I was fortunate to pull a Keenan Allen auto /600 and a Le’Veon Bell auto /25 in two hobby boxes. It was a junk rookie class overall, but the auto list is much smaller than 2014 and 2015 which does increase you chances a bit for landing a bigger name.

POW !!!!


My major grip is the one autograph per box. If I am getting one auto per box, it shouldn’t be of Mike Glennon, Luke Joeckel (worthless) and Miguel Maysonnette (more worthless than worthless).

If it has to be one auto per box, it should be a damn good autograph. Our big case hit was a Manti Teo Pink Refractor /75 which wont even fetch $50 on ebay.

The best card I pulled was Cordarrelle Patterson base /600 which if graded may pull $75. Come on guys. Two autos per box might get me to half of the cost of the case ($750). It’s unfortunate for the collector that majority of the gems (like the Superfractor, red and Gold refractors autos) are sitting in a warehouse somewhere and will never be pulled!

It would be a better rating if I had pulled anyone worth anything! 1 auto per box, come on! Horrible, horrible horrible after a case opened. Thank god I didn’t buy it, well I have only bought this product once 1 time in my life and it was the worst other than the refractors, but I don’t want refractors all the time! For the money I want autographs or at least 1 decent autograph. The case was a group break and they chose chrome though I tried to talk everyone into finest, after all these years still HORRIBLE. I’m tired of these company’s charging so much for nothing, this is why I use your money to get what I want, I but the singles of what I want and you waist your money and buy for my you.
The truth was told here 100% nothing but TRUTH, and I fell bad for those guys for
waisting there money, but I gave them fair and honest warning! Now take my advise or I will be buying your two nice cards worth 50$ each, though you paid almost 1000$ for a case off of eBay. Though I like the completed sets! Especially the new blue wave refractor auto’d numbered to only 50 the odds of pulling a nice one of these are probably 1/10,000 packs for a 150$ 200$ card. Please be smart and do the odds, listen to the majority or you will be mad at your self.


I have bought 1 hobby box of topps chrome, along with going to my local card shop, JB sports cards and Varsity Jackets, and buying countless packs there out of hobby boxes.

Out of the box I bought, I pulled a Barkavious Mingo Blue Wave Auto /50

and from the Card shop, I even pulled a Eddie Lacy Refractor Auto /150

All in all I would say this is a great Product, as its cheap for all the numbered cards, inserts and one auto you get per box
compared to others where you pay more to have a chance at something great but if you dont get it you spent way to much for the value.

topps chrome redemption was sent fedex ! quicker than expected.. happy so far..Thanks !!!


not happy 2 hobby boxes 2 duds


I’ve done pretty well buying only blasters from Target. Plenty of various refractors, not a ton of dupes, and quite a few inserts, and even a Kenny Stills refractor auto. Undoubtedly the best retail offering out there for football this season. The only better pull I had was from this season’s Bowman football, got a Larry Fitzgerald Purple Ice (#01/10) out of a rack pack!

Trizzo22: Walmart blasters do not have any auto’s in them, so if you bought your blasters from them you can’t pull an auto.


I just have a quick questions, I just finished putting together the 2013 topps football camo complete set, so 440 cards with only 399 of each card. Took a while, anyone else done this yet?


Please update your 1959 Minis Setlist. You have several wrong.

Brandon Any specifics? We double-checked the list is the same as the one from Topps. Thanks!


Continuation ——- a 1986 refractor rookie auto of Tavon Austin numbered 11/15. Also worth noting is that of the I’ve bought the 1st box only was the Wal-Mart version with the rookie relic. The last 5 were all the 7 packs + 1 extra. All in all the product has been great to me on the retail side.


I have purchased 6 blasters of 2013 Topps Chrome Football, in my opinion it has been good to me. For color I have pulled 1 blue wave, 1 camo, 3 purple, 3 BCA pink (all rookies), 1 black, 2 blue (1 rookie), as well as 1 die-cut which was Tavon Austin. I’m also guessing I completely beat the odds because believe it or not on the 5th box I pulled


trizzo ive bought 12 blaster boxes and pulled a dual hunter patterson auto and a chris johnson veteran rookie so dont give up, bought all boxes from meijers


To Trizzo22,

Wow, that’s a significant amount of cash spent on retail blaster boxes. I feel for your issue in that you received absolutely no autos. I’m not a fan of the 2013 draft class at all. Matter of fact and simply put, I have refused to purchase any 2013 products an have solely relied on backtracking 2012 products via the secondary market. For collectors that truly collect to collect and not to look at any financial gain, this year is defitnately a year to call it a loss and anticipate the 2014 draft class. I wish you the best of luck!


I always look forward to Chrome. Baseball and Football, however, When I buy friggin 29 blaster boxes in the last 2 months and NOT ONE AUTO, That pisses me off. Figure 19.99 a blaster x 29 = 580.00 + tax.
I’m no longer spending $$ on any Topps retail product. Panini at least throws autos in retail.
Topps did Auto in every 5th blaster for Bowman Chrome Baseball, why not anything else. Big Fail Topps
My sets will be built via ebay

Love the RC’s spread all through the set.

Great set. Grabbed 2 boxes, seemed like I was getting 2 rookies a pack. A bunch of rookies overall, the highlights were a Keenan Allen rookie auto Prism Refractor in one box and a Manti Teo rookie auto, cameo refractor in the other. Only reason I don’t give it 5 stars is the one rookie auto a box.

I have been way happier with my “Wal-mart” retail boxes 7 with 1 relic. Other 8 pack blasters are ok but I much prefer getting the game used, even tho I have like 4 Barkleys now. I have had no luck with “hobby” boxes and almost feel bad selling them to customers . I remember years back anything retail was straight junk but now and days there is a good mix.


With the Chrome issues each year, Topps takes their regular base card designs to a higher level of quality and function. After enhancing the cards’ stock tremendously and adding their reflective and refractor technologies, Topps tries to condense the size of the set into a product that is very user/fan friendly and easier to manage. The 220 base set, numbering half of its regular counterpart, must have an array of parallels and variations that amaze and intrigue us, for as consumers, we deserve to get what we pay for. I think that Topps goes over and above their intentions, since they have to build the extravagant equipment that produces these marvelous collectibles. We must all remember that Chrome products are not merely cards, but are impressions of style and design! Let’s all give a shout out to the art of technology and grace, which Topps seems to handle extremely well every year with these gems!


One of the most anticipated products that collectors purchase every year is none other than Topps Chrome. Shiny chrome cards printed on some of the most durable card stock out there. Well made with it’s emphasis on resurrecting past designs and graphics from Topps vast library. There isn’t one simple complaint I can think of with 2013 Topps Chrome.

I know that hobby boxes carry one auto or a relic card. To get by this issue, I’ve been purchasing a rack pack and or a blaster box on my many forays to Walmart. Convenience is a modern creation to be hailed by man and woman. My wife, Mrs. Toshi is also a football card hobbyist! So this works well for my family as everyone else within our home enjoys the ripping of packs. My other option is the secondary market, find what you like, buy what you want, pay the price that you want to pay.

To no fault of Topps, the 2013 draft class is not as inspiring as the 2012 draft class. The majority of collectors are presumably focused on new releases, this gives collectors whom enjoy products from 2012, like myself, a little extra breathing room. Currently, I now own a 2012 Topps Chrome Complete Base Set. Complete insert sets of 1957, 1965, 1984, Red Zone Rookie Die Cut, and the Quarterback Rookie Reprint Card set for less than the cost of a hobby box. This is what makes this hobby so fun, to find the chase, catch the winning prize, and to showcase your collection with other fellow collectors. Chromes debut has once again gained my five star rating.


I still think its one of the best products but every year it seems tough to pull packer cards . I always get way to many cowboy and NY team cards and the autos are hard to get and they always seem to be average players from late rounds..

Jeff if they didn’t have all those 2nd and 3rd stringers in the set they wouldn’t be able to sellit so cheap. If it was nothing but stars it would be $120-$200 a box. But saying that I do think they could of done 2 autos a box.


Piss poor chance of getting a quality autograph, and way to many cards produced. Bought four boxes of hobby, wish I hadn’t, I got four autos of second stringers and third stringers, no starters whatsoever. Please do not waste any of your hard earned cash, I know I wish I hadn’t.


I am basically a ‘retail buyer’ and this is the first couple “blaster boxes” that I have purchased in terms of football….my primary focus has been baseball and hockey but my son and I are starting a nice collection for his future investment (besides pokemon and skylander cards – LOL)

I thought I would share a summary of 3 “blaster boxes” – 87 total cards (no doubles)….purchased from Walmart *not all retail stores carry this product!
-56 total base cards [includes 27 RC]
-6 base card refractors
-1 blue wave refractor (162 Matt Barkley)
-1 Military Camo refractor (166 Eric Fisher: 100/499)
-7 Prism refractors
-1 black refractor (92 Cornellius Carradine: 43/299)
-1 red refractor (120 Jonathan Cooper: 136/399)
-2 purple refractors (18 Justin Hunter: 102/499, 88 Lane Johnson 41/499)
-2 1959 ‘Mini Set’ refractors
-1 1965 ‘Tall Boy’ refractor (2 Geno Smith RC)
-2 1969 Refractors
-3 1986 Refractors
-1 ‘Chrome Die-Cut’ refractor (RDC-MG Mike Glennon)
-3 Rookie Relic Cards (RR-QP Quinton Patton,
RR-SB Stedman Bailey, RR-TWI Terrance Williams)

So ‘all in all’ the 4 star rating is given because I think the variety is present and I think the overall appearance of ‘the lot’ is way above average….would I recommend buying a box or two during this football season – ABSOLUTELY “YES”. The only negative I will give it, is that the AUTO are going to be very hard to obtain if you are just going the ‘retail route’…..

I see above blue wave is #/50…but I got two of these and neither have any number for the particular cards I got. Anyone else getting this?

ryan parr

Couple of questions on the set. Wondering if you may know Ryan…
1. How come X-fractors are not on the list of card types on the packs? What are the odds to get one?

2. Same with Blue wave. Are they a limited set? If so, how many for each card? Is it just for the 220 cards? Did you say above that they have only been used in the past for auto redemptions?

3. I’m a retail buyer (instead of hobby) for several reasons I won’t get into here, but my question is Walmart is offering a Blaster box with 7 packs and a 1 card Rookie relic card (which actually has 7 different Refractor versions itself which is cool and I believe pretty much new…well I see Topps regular has different ribbons and team vs. NFL shield, but still this is cooler). Others offer 7 + 1 free pack. ONE OTHER MAJOR/NOT SO MAJOR(?) difference is the Relic does not offer the chance of auto’s in the blaster box.

4. Lastly, there is no way that at the beginning of a release of Topps Chrome that there are more better cards are put in first shipments vs. shipments down the road right? I mean, I am getting a fractor and a Pink or Military or Purple card in just about every pack. And if not that, I get a Insert (mostly ’86 version). To summarize, I’m getting WELL OVER what I should get in the odds on the side of the box right now. Same last year and that NEVER LASTS. A month from now, I guarantee it will die down. Is this a known fact and I’m slow? Or is this just me (doubtful)? Or is there another explanation you can think of?
Thanks for your time!

ryan parr Thanks for the heads up on the refractors. We’ll look into it Monday. Sometimes we aren’t given a heads up on the retail stuff or things that are announced late.

The best in quality, price, inserts, fractors, and checklist of players.
THE ONLY PROBLEM (wish we could do half star votes) is that it is too hard to get Auto’s (for Retail at least and even Hobby). If this had the 1 in 35 auto like Platinum has (Retail) this would be the PERFECT set to rip. Besides that, it’s great. That said, don’t rest on your laurels Topps….Prizm will continue to get better I’d imagine.


Does anyone know the print run of the Base Rookie Autograph Variations is? I pulled a Patterson auto variation that looks like a normal refractor but isn’t #’d. Any hints would be sweet!

Add Blue Wave Autographs #/50


Love this already! Anyone know any of the SPs yet?


Love Topps Chrome, wish they would do more than 3 Raiders cards a year though…


REALLY?? topps chrome is a rookie product and andy luck and RGknee autos?

The Denard autograph is awesome. The die cut is really cool. The throwback designs aren’t as cool as last year. But the chrome product is always cool. It would be cool to have some more autographs. Maybe they could have some veteran autos.
