Default 2013 Inception, Chipping?

It seemed like Topps had mostly fixed the chipping issue with the release of Bowman Inception baseball but the new photos Topps released on twitter https://twitter.com/toppscards/media/grid might be covering up the same problems that plagued the previous football releases.

Looking at the photos, the edges and corners have been cropped. Is Topps tying to hide something?

We will know tomorrow.

Topps has been adamant about the fact that it fixed its chipping issues. They have noted that similar card stock and printing processes were used on Valor and Bowman Inception, and neither of those had the chipping issues of last year's Inception Football.

Hopefully they are true to their word and got it fixed.

Valor had chipping issues, and these have double 00 jersey numbers. No thanks. More of the same imo

Much less chipping... The red/green mix on that card is ugly, we'll see what everything else looks like.
More 00's means I'm out.

stuff drops signifigantly over the 2 weeks its out. I dont see value in opening these. Finest and Platinum will be right around the corner.

And double 00 Jersey number....the 2nd QB in the draft taken and they cant figure out what Jersey he is going to wear or get the chipping issue resolved? Sorry normally I'm a cheerleader for new stuff but after two years of helping to support this crap I'm done. Good luck to the box breakers

Damn! You guys are brutal! No breaks, no reports of breaks and one card with a horrible picture and the product sucks?? What if they stacked this one like they did regular Bowman, will you still not like it?

yah i like it too. Judging from the few pictures available of live cards there do not seem to be chipping issues. I like the way the cards look. players with "00" numbers do not look good but hopefully there won't be too many of those.

I'm not sure if I like the look of this product or not.

Yeah I'm hoping the Green Bay players don't have 00...

More cards are popping up on ebay. no major chipping issues showing on them.

2013 Topps Inception Russell Wilson Marshawn Lynch 75 Sherman 199 Seahawks | eBay

2013 Topps Inception Robert Griffin III Green Alfred Morris Garcon Redskins | eBay

Base cards look pretty nice in my opinion.

I ordered a case this year since I busted 3 a year ago, so let's hope the chipping is better. The mural backgrounds are fine in my opinion and the 00 jerseys are just livable for now since it's still summer. For a early rookie product, it's just fine. Finest won't be much better with more sticker autos and still won't necessarily have the jersey numbers all solved.

Did anybody here notice that the box break on the sell sheets suggest the autos are not guaranteed per box like previous years of Inception? Topps says 2 autos or relics per box plus the jumbo jersey or patch per box. I wonder if autos are slightly more limited then before. I will see tomorrow when my case arrives. Probably will just stick with 1 case this year with the weaker rookie class unless I'm blown away at case content.

Those look really nice and based on these non-autographed cards there doesn't appear any significant chipping. I hope the same can be said about the autographed cards.
