2019 Topps Chrome Rookie Variations Factory Set Details
All issued with the unmistakable Refractor rainbow finish, it appears that 2019 Topps Chrome Rookie Variations Factory Set matches the lineup for the flagship 2019 rookie image variations found in all retail Complete Set boxes. Although the players are the same, the images are different.
Unlike in 2018, Topps was not quite as helpful with the notations on the back. Ignoring the flagship numbering, it looks like a standard 2019 Topps Chrome Baseball card. While the card numbering should be enough, especially since the main Chrome set stops at #204, there is another tell. That is found with the Code#CMP number on the back that ends in #155.
The shiny cards also come in low-numbered Refractor parallels, including Gold Refractor (#/50) and Orange Refractor (#/25). Red Refractor (#/5) and SuperFractor (1/1) versions are also expected, but this has not been confirmed.
As for the rookie players, the only overlap with the main 2019 Topps Chrome Baseball Variations set is Kikuchi.
2019 Topps Chrome Rookie Variations Complete Factory Set Boxes
A helpful tip for any of the Topps Baseball Complete Set boxes is to read the outside to confirm the exclusives. And there are quite a few different exclusives to uncover. In this case, the 2019 Topps Chrome Rookie Variations Factory Set cards come in a green box that is exclusive to Target.
These boxes contain the five-card set of base rookie variations, as well, so you obviously get a solid haul of RC content in the exclusive set.
