2006 Topps Chrome hobby box

Contents

Description

2006 Topps Chrome is a 354-card parallel brand and was released in July, 2006. For the first time since 1997, Topps released Chrome in a single series.

The first 252 cards in this set feature veterans done in the style of the 2006 Topps Baseball set; while cards numbered #253-#275 feature Award Winners and #276-#330 feature rookies. The final 24 cards (#331-#354) are all autographed rookies.

2006 was the first year of the MLBPA's new "Rookie Card" guidelines, and although all of the autographed and un-autographed "rookies" sport the standardized "ROOKIE CARD" icon, there are very few actual "true" rookie cards in 2006 ToppChro. One of the few true rookies, Kenji Johjima (Card #285), is also the sole player available on either an autographed or non-autographed card.

Each 24-pack Hobby box should yield two autographs, 14 Refractors, and a Box Topper containing a card serial-numbered to 90 or less.

Distribution

Hobby: 24 packs plus one Box Topper per box, four cards per pack (MSRP $3)

Inserts

Mantle Home Run History

This set, like the set of the same name it parallels in Topps Baseball, commemorates Mickey Mantle's most prolific home runs; and like the set in Topps' flagship, stretches out over three years (2006-08). Fortunately, Topps spared The Hobby another 536-card monstrosity and only chose to celebrate 59 of The Mick's milestone homers. The cards checklisted below are for the 13 Chrome Mantle Home Run Histories issued in 2006.

Each card is available in the following Refractor parallels.

  • Refractor (serial-numbered to 500 copies)
  • Black Refractor (serial-numbered to 200 copies)
  • Blue Refractor (serial-numbered to 100 copies)
  • Red X-Fractor (serial-numbered to 25 copies, exclusive to Hobby Box Topper)
  • Gold SuperFractor (one-of-one, exclusive to Hobby Box Topper)

Bonds Home Run History

Like the similar Mickey Mantle set (see above); this set commemorates Barry Bonds's most prolific home runs. And like the Mantle set, only Bonds' milestone homers are celebrated. The first 15 cards were inserted into packs of 2005 Topps Chrome Update. The 14 cards checklisted below finish the set and are the Chrome Bonds Home Run Histories issued in 2006.

In 2005, Barry Bonds became the first established Major League player to voluntarily withdraw from the MLBPA's group licensing agreement. Topps signed Bonds to a two-year exclusive contract (reportedly worth $2 million) and during this period, Bonds was only on Topps cards.

Each card is available in the following Refractor parallels.

  • Refractor (serial-numbered to 500 copies)
  • Black Refractor (serial-numbered to 200 copies)
  • Blue Refractor (serial-numbered to 100 copies)
  • Red X-Fractor (serial-numbered to 25 copies, exclusive to Hobby Box Topper)
