The 2017 Topps Chrome Update set is a Target exclusive but this time there aren’t any other packs along for the ride.
Releasing this week, the product is being distributed exclusively through Target with seven four-card packs in a box that retails for $19.99. In the past, the post-season “Mega boxes” contained standard Topps Update packs and a couple of Chrome packs but this year, that’s not the case. The base Chrome Update checklist has been increased to 100 cards, opening up with Bryce Harper at #1 and including a mix of veterans and rookies.
There are Refractor parallels randomly inserted with several 1/1 Printing Plate variations and 1/1 Superfractors.
The checklist includes one insert set, All-Rookie Cup, with 20 cards showcasing well-known players who have been on Topps’ All-Star Rookie team throughout the years.
There are autograph parallels for all 100 cards in the base set as well as Rookie Cup parallel autographs with cards signed by Harper, Mike Trout, Carlos Correa, Derek Jeter, Kris Bryant, Ken Griffey Jr. and Johnny Bench among those available. Autographed cards aren’t guaranteed in each box, though.
