Topps Releases List of Chrome Redemptions; Promises More Communication

Topps took a preemptive strike toward softening the blow of more redemption cards in its upcoming 2013 Topps Chrome Baseball product.  On Tuesday, the company released a list of players whose autographs won’t be live in packs and it’s a long one.

Yasiel Puig signed 2013 Topps ChromeWhile collectors will be hoping for autograph Rookie cards of Yasiel Puig, Many Machado, Mike Zunino and others, they’ll probably have to wait a bit, although the company says many of the signed cards have been received since the cards were shipped off to the printer.

“While we have secured all of the top rookies in Topps Chrome Baseball, a handful of them will be redemptions,” they stated in an email.  “We want our customers to be assured that we are working around the clock to get the cards signed and into the hands of our valued collectors.   In fact, many of the redemption cards in this product are already in-house and ready to be shipped out including some of Yasiel Puig’s cards.”

Topps is also making an effort to keep collectors informed about which players who have redemption cards in new products have signed for the company.  Starting with Topps Chrome , they will be updating collectors on the status of player signings on a weekly basis  via Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.  Look for updates every Friday.
