This didn't make the calendar at Blowout Cards, or I missed it. But here is some basic information from Cardboard Connection.

Product Details​

Although it arrived very late, 2020 Topps Chrome Update Series Baseball maintains the annual end-of-season chromium product for another MLB collecting year.

The Retail-exclusive Topps Chrome Update (TCU) set is found at Target for $19.99 per box.

As many collectors have noticed, there are two different Mega Box colors (white and blue). However, there is no difference between the two except for the box color.

2020 Topps Chrome Update Series Baseball Set Details​

Keeping with past editions, 2020 Topps Chrome Update Series Baseball comes in a Mega Box format with 28 total cards. The set takes key subjects from 2020 Topps Update Series Baseball and puts the 2020 Topps Chrome Baseball shine on them.

That means that multiple boxes will be necessary to complete the main set. However, based on the pack odds, the Refractor rainbow has shed a few colors that were found in 2019.
