2015 Topps Chrome Football Box Break & Review

 photo 15toppschromefbbox_zpsmidt0jls.jpg

Topps Chrome has been one of the most hard hitting football products released each year.  In some ways, I think it carries much more weight than it’s baseball counterpart.  2015 Topps Chrome Football continues it’s tradition of on-card rookie autographs, along with a slew of colorful refractors to track down.  Bowman Chrome is to baseball what Topps Chrome is to football when it comes to true rookie cards.  That’s how I’ve always seen it.

At the heart and soul of this product are the on-card rookie autographs printed on that classic chrome card stock.  Those are the real draw.  Collectors received a nice surprise this year in the form of on-card autographed rookie patches.  Topps really pulled through with these as it can be a challenge to print the cards up, get the patches in them, and have the players actually sign the cards.  Cards of this quality in many cases would be redemptions at the time this product was released.  But that certainly isn’t the case here.

Outside of the rookies, you’ve got the 60th Anniversary veteran autographs.  I thought these looked good in their regular flagship product, but put them on chrome stock and they get even better.  The only downside is that they’re signed on stickers.  But they don’t all stick out too much based on the way Topps designed the cards.

Pulling a top rookie/veteran autograph isn’t the easiest thing to do.  A positive aspect about this brand are the parallels.  If that rookie autograph you got isn’t the biggest pull of your life, there is still a chance of getting a low numbered parallel.  The low numbered parallels from this product are massively popular, and can easily be worth more than the autograph you pulled.

I see so many people complaining that their box didn’t contain a life changing “hit”.  If you’re opening boxes looking to get rich, you’re missing the whole point.  Sometimes you get lucky, and other times you don’t.  That’s life!
