Topps Chrome is back, and we all know what that means...
Beautiful, shiny cards.
This is a simple, short review to write. Take the gorgeous Topps base set, and many of its best
inserts, and apply Chrome technology to it. Voila, you have Topps Chrome.
Of course, it isn't QUITE that simple, but it is close. There are some neat bells and whistles included. The
multiple levels of refractors are here, of course, plus each box comes with two autograph cards. In
addition, there are two boxtopper packs. The red refractor (or something even better if you are lucky) comes
in one, while the two cross-brand A-Rod Road to 500 cards come in the other. Base refractors come about
eight per box, and the generous number of inserts, including the outstanding Mickey Mantle Story and
Generation Now sets, bring the ratio of inserts to one per pack, giving collectors something to smile about
every time they open a pack.
A short review? Yes. But some things sell themselves. This is one of those products. If you like chrome
cards, this review probably isn't even necessary........
