2014 TOPPS CHROME NFL
24 Packs // 4 cards per pack
'One Rookie Auto Per Box!'
I received these:
71 Base cards - 32% of the base set of 220
In the tradition of Topps base sets - Chrome does not disappoint. Cards are printed on stiff stock with a bright chrome finish (thus the name 'Chrome'!!!!)
One curious point with this base set - on the reverse, there is a Topps Code. Normally, this code is consistent through out the base set. When the code # is different, one knows that you have an SP of some kind. Cards beginning with # 111 ( I believe ) have a different code - maybe they are all rookies #111 thru 220?
I do know there are some SP's or at least one....
8 reg refractors
1 silver 'Pulsar' refractor - Sutton
Sepia / Blue Wave / Cammo
Sepia - Green #ed to 99
Cammo - Richardson #ed to 499
Blue Wave - Cruz
Fantasy Focus // "Screen Catch"
Fantasy Focus - Rogers -- McCoy
Green Screen Catch (refractor)- Allen
'85 parallel // Die Cut
4 '85 parallels
Die Cut refractor - Fales
Mini - Beckham // Evans
Tall mini - Robinson
For the football collector, this is a good issue. High quality photos and good selection of players through out the league. Rookie player collectors should be relatively happy with 110 rookies.
There are an absolute pile of inserts that I did not receive - such as red, blue, green, black refractors, game used inserts, at least one other die cut, 1000 yard club cards to name a few. The master set builder will have a field day completing this set!!
My favorite as usual is the die cut refractor - excellent looking card.
Pet peeve - if there is a 'marking' designating the refractors - for the life of me, I cannot find it. Therefore, one could possibly have a regular refractor and not even know it....
Overall grade A- PLEASE mark the refractors....
Go buy a few boxes and see what inserts you receive!!
