Unlike many of their other releases, Topps took pity on chromium collectors by identifying the ten variations on the final checklist for 2016 Topps Chrome Baseball ahead of time. Clearly focusing on the younger stars of the league, the group is led by Clayton Kershaw, Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Kris Bryant, while also touching on key rookies such as Kenta Maeda and Kyle Schwarber.

With hobby odds of 1:464 packs, these are no easy pull. However, they are pretty simple to spot given that most switch the orientation completely from the base card, going from vertical to horizontal. There are also some limited parallels for the variations, including Green (#/99) and Orange (#/25).
