Default 2011 Topps Chrome Baseball USA question

Here are the odds from the pack for USA:

USA Baseball Collegiate national team set redemptions:
ref - 1:964
blue ref - 1:2025
goldd - 1:18400
atomic - 1:92000
red - 1:184,000
super 1: 920,000
print plate 1:230,000


USA baseball collegiate team autograph redmeptions:
base - 1:824
ref - 1:1,173
blue - 1:2397
gold - 1:4900
atomic - 1:25,600
red - 1:57,725

print plate - 1:230,000

My question is do you think this redemption is an error and should just say refractor set redemption?

what makes you think that this is an error and shouldnt say autograph? If it says autograph, then it should mean the auto set. Nice hit man

I am just going by the odds. It doesnt say anything about an auto redemption set in the odds or the sell sheet.

yeah, you hit the whole set, good pull...... bonus!

a year or two and they all get drafted, you might have a #1 pick in there!

So, if you hit the superfractor set, it means that you will recieve the whole roster of team usa??? like you hit 25 or so superfractor?? wow!

And this is for hobby or retail? One base USA auto in 3 case? if so, Ican't imagine the production run...

i didn't think the superfractor would be a whole set, but the odds that the OP posted say just that, doesn't that mean there will be 2 superfractors? that would be too much for me to handle if i pulled like 25 supers!~! we'll find out soon enough for sure!

So the red autos are tougher pulls than the super autos?

Going by the OP, the Superfractor set redemption is for the regular non-autograph version. The autographed superfractors are single card redemptions.

Hence, the OP's confusion as to why his redemption card says refractor autograph set, when the odds only state there are non-auto SET redemptions, and single card auto redemptions.

Also, did anyone notice that Red Ref autos are harder to pull than Superfractor autos?

Interesting redemption that may be a misprint since Topps says the USA autos come in a pack of 5 cards on the sell sheet. I sincerely hope that is not the case since it's your card but Topps has a history of not knowing the difference between a patch and a jersey. They say it's a printing error but they let the same error pass through multiple times so there is a chance that the person creating these redemption's has confused the word "set" and "pack". It's also not reassuring that their new redemption's look like someone can make them on a photocopier. Hope it's a set for your ca$e.

I got three of these redemptions - different ones:

A set of 2011 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team - Refractor Cards
A set of 2011 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team - Autographed Cards
A set of 2011 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team - Blue Refractor Autographed Cards

This is the exact wording on the redemption.

I just hit the auto set, so it's definitely not a typo. Is this a list or hold kind of redemption?

I've seen some listed on ebay for as high $499.99.

You learn in elementary school the difference between plural and singular. These cards are written in plural form. If this is a typo Topps has got to have the worlds dumbest employees.

They could mean a "set" of 5 cards? Meaning just a pack?

Topps is so dumb.

I'm all kinds of confused. I thought the sell sheet said that the non-auto redemptions were for the entire set (20 or so), but the auto redemptions were for 5 cards. I guess the first person to redeem the auto can set us straight.
