I had better luck in the blasters of this last year than I did in the hobby boxes. In the eight or so hobby boxes the best autograph I got was Brian Brohm. In about six or so blasters I got three autographs, including a Felix Jones. Definitely one of the better values I guess both in the hobby and retail.

Wow, I love to point out the bad parts of weak products(helps to not waste money on crap). This however, with its slick/simple design, on-card autographs and potential for super-huge hits(Superfractor auto of Crabtree...ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!). I like what I see, wow

I didn't even notice that the autographs were on-card! Another bonus!

Became a big fan of this product this year. Looking forward to buy a case of this when available.

I'm in for a few cases. I think by that time I'd recovered from my few cases of Prestige. Did prices go up after release on this last year or down?

just ask yourself "why do you collect". at that point you will know if buying a case of Chrome is right for you. i refuse to allow myself to be suckered into a case of this stuff.

I have been disappointed with Topps Chrome Football Every year since 2000 when they numbered the rookies to 1650. But then again, The hobby has changed a great deal since then, maybe i'm not moving with the times lol

yes sir...times have changed. I made a decent amount of coin on this last year and I know a select few others on the board here did as well. I don't see that changing any this year. There are a ton of set builders out there for the different parallels and inserts...etc.

PS--check my ebay sales. I have a few football #/50 or less. Even a 1/1 Harrell Auto.

Boy oh boy tell me about it!!! I lost around 35-40%. Although I have yet to sort out base sets and a few parallels.

this is the only set I collect and put together myself, and I sell all the cool/groovy cards to help pay for my set. I love this product. Not too expensive, you get great gradable rookies and autos, and you can make a few bucks off refractors and SP's.. it's a great lower end product.

Personally I've liked this product over Bowman Chrome the last few years. More rookies per box, with essentially similar guarantees. I'm a Bears' fan, but I cannot wait to get my hands on the first cards of Shonn Greene in his NFL uniform, probably Donruss Classics or Topps. I don't think an Iowa player at a skill position (other than Dallas Clark) has made it big in forever.

Here's what I'm hearing about retail. I hear blue refractors are probably going to hobby and will be replaced by Green refractors in retail. I hear xfractors are staying in retail, but until the actual sell sheet comes out we won't know for sure.

Last year I got retail from Blowout and then it dried up and the blue refractors went berserk.

Hopefully the green refractors will be the green color from Finest, that would be sweet.

I have yet to purchase a case of cards yet (just recently got back in the hobby a few months ago), but this may be the first. Assuming the price is right of course.

it'd be hard to do a GB of this because of the lack of hits per box correct?

Not necessarily. Team based breaks work ok for this. The RC's and refractors sell well enough that you have a good shot to at least make your money back...pending you don't get absolute garbage out of the case.

Nice photoshop'd cards, seeing as they haven't put on pads yet.

the cards do look very sharp. but im hoping that they dont use the same photos from the sell sheet.

the stafford looks cool but the crabtree and sanchez i dont like.


by the way has anyone seen the sell sheet for the new bowman yet ?

also why do most collectors choose topps chrome over bowman chrome ?

cant seem to find the sell sheet but sure it should be available soon..my only concern about this product is-unless i misread it- theres 1 Auto or GU per box correct? anyone else see this a possible problem...unless it states like last year that they are patch autos and are about 1/case

i think this has to do with the fact that Topps Chrome usually has better design, has a huge set for set collectors -seeing how its basically just Topps 400+ card set with the Chrome finish, and while the A Autos are still usually harder to pull, compared to Bowmans Checklist and Collation its at least easier to pull some decent ones out of boxes...also Bowman is usually split between Bowman (usually has 50 or so "Chrome" RCs inserted) and then Bowman Chrome set with rest released later
