Description

2005 Topps Chrome Updates & Highlights is a 237-card set released in January, 2006. This was the first time since 2000 that the Topps Chrome Traded/Update brand had its own distinct release -- as opposed to being bundled with another set -- and the only time it was issued in pack form. The last seventeen cards in the base set are autographed, and each Hobby box will yield two autographs.

The 2005 MLB Draft was one of the deepest drafts in recent memory, and the rookie cards in Topps/Topps Chrome Updates & Highlights is legendary. Andrew McCutchen and Jay Bruce have autographed rookie cards. Among the un-autographed RCs are: Russell Martin, Matt Kemp, Ryan Zimmerman, Ryan Braun, and Jacoby Ellsbury.

Distribution

Hobby: Two, 10-pack, miniboxes plus one box topper per box, four cards per pack (MSRP: $3). Eight boxes per case.

Retail: 24 packs per box, four cards per pack (MSRP: $3). 20 boxes per case.
