The sell sheet doesn't list base rookie autographs it just lists the numbered parallels starting with refractors /499, are all the rookie autos numbered?

No, the base autos are not numbered in Topps Chrome.

What they usually do, is put one base auto in the box and the other auto is usually numbered.

Not necessarily. Sometimes both are base, sometimes one is and one is refractor, sometimes both are refractor.

Yea it is pretty random. It doesn't happen much, but some boxes do have two parallel autos in them. Last year I had a box that had a Black Eric Surkamp and a Red Brett Lawrie in the same box.

And I think one of my two cases was hot. Red Harper, Black Darvish Auto, Atomic Turner Auto, a few Cespedes autos, etc.

Pondering on adding another case of TC. Really pumped about this year's offering.

I'm debating on which to get. Looking to flip sealed, most likely. Leaning towards Update at the moment since it's $200 cheaper. What do you guys think?

2013 Topps Chrome
2013 Topps Update

Chrome is a better flip, Update is a better rip and flip, assuming you break and list really fast.

I had two cases of 13 Bowman Chrome and two cases of 13 Topps Chrome on order. I just added three more cases of Topps Chrome to my order to make it 5 total. I hope I'm not disappointed.

I would think Bowman Chrome has more room for disappointment this year. Could kind of be like last year where the only great hit was a very rare Harper RC auto.

Topps Chrome should be at worst very solid. Topps usually does a good job with TC, so I am hoping that continues.

I think we would be saying 2010 is sold also if it weren't for the horrific warping/centering issues. The rookies in the set are good, just horrible QC.

Heyward/Castro/Strasburg/Donaldson now are all in that set. So not a horrible class.

Lol, did you really list Donaldson as a plus and ignore my boy Stanton? Man, has he had that bad of a year that people have forgotten about him? Actually, ignore that last question. C'mon 2014.

Whoops, haha, forgot about Stanton, probably because I never pulled any of him.

So yea, Heyward/Stanton?Castro/Donaldson/Strasburg. Not bad really.

I really like the price of TC right now, but hate hate that beyond Machado, Bundy, Avisail we really know nothing about all the big rookies from this year, who's in and who's out

I have never been a TC buyer, but I think at current prices, there is great room to profit either sealed or ripping

Well we do know that Puig will at the very worst will have a base rookie, as that is what they said when they made their announcement about him.

That, at worst, probably adds about 75 dollars to an average case. That's about 10%, which is huge.

With autos in Inception and Ginter already, it would be hard to imagine Topps leaving him out in their flagship RC product.

I agree, I do think he will be in there, just looking at it from a worst case point of view.

I'm worried that if Franklin is in this he'll be a redemption, he's been a redemption in EVERYTHING this year.

I have the SAME worry right now. Probably the one reason I haven't pulled the trigger on a case yet. I have two redemptions coming that I haven't redeemed on Topps' site yet from platinum and inception.

Redemptions are my only worry too. Last year they did well with only Harper being a redemption, but Machado, Profar, Puig, Ryu and Cole have been redemptions in all of their products this year (Profar was live in Ginter though). Hopefully they got some of those guys live.

If I pull a redemption that's worth something I'll probably just sell it on ebay and buy a live auto of that player or a PC card.. Not worth the headache putting up with topps IMO (with a few exceptions)

At least we wouldn't have to worry about Paxton...right, right, right?

Oh wait, I'm thinking about Z, Miller and Romero. Hard to imagine there are 5 M's autos in Inception. When has that ever happened?
