What’s Hot in 2012 Topps Chrome Football

Just like this year's rookie class, 2012 Topps Chrome Football arrived with lots of hype and high expectations. The promise of on-card autographs, ever-expanding Refractor rainbows and a ton of other inserts were hard to ignore, especially from a mid-range product.

Before the set even hit, box prices had risen significantly. The was delayed a couple of days, at least at the hobby level, due to Hurricane Sandy. But when it hit, collectors jumped in. For one of the few times in hobby history, even redemption cards generated some excitement when Topps announced packs of exclusive Blue Wave Refractors would accompany redeemed autographs.

With so many levels of parallels and inserts, there's plenty to chase. It has also resulted in a lot of different low-numbered cards, which are always popular when it comes to rookies.

The release of 2012 Topps Chrome Football also coincided with the emergence of yet another breakout star from an already stacked first-year class. Doug Martin is just the latest 2012 rookie to be hot in the hobby, joining Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Russel Wilson, Trent Richardson and more.

Below is a real-time look at the 50 most-watched 2012 Topps Chrome Football cards currently listed on eBay. This is a good reflection of what's hot with collectors and generating the most buzz in the hobby.
