Parallels

All 239 base cards, including the 19 Autographed Rookies, are available in the following Refractor parallels.

  • Refractors (Autographed Rookies: serial-numbered to 500 copies)
  • Copper Refractors (serial-numbered to 599 copies; Autographed Rookies: serial-numbered to 100 copies)

2008 National

Topps created a special run of 2008 Topps Chrome for distribution at the 2008 National Sports Collectors Convention. All base cards EXCEPT the 19 Autographed Rookies were printed for this set, and each card has the NSCC logo on the front. Topps distributed the cards in uncut sheet form; however, some collectors chose to cut the sheet into individual cards.

While the cards are not serial-numbered, it is believed that only 300 copies of each base card were produced for this promotion.
