2018-19 Topps Chrome Bundesliga Soccer Details
2018-19 Topps Chrome Bundesliga Soccer marks an expanded effort from the card maker into the German league. It’s the third soccer set over the past several months to adopt the Chrome brand, following UEFA Champions League and Premier League. Besides the obvious design elements, 2018-19 Topps Chrome Bundesliga uses much the same format as well as far as chase cards go.
The product has lots of color in different areas of the checklist. There’s also the promise of one autograph per hobby box.
2018-19 Topps Chrome Bundesliga Soccer Overview
The base set isn’t a big one. It has just 90 cards covering top players from around the league.
Refractors are plentiful, offering up parallel rainbows for the entire set. Regular Refractors, which are noticeable for their reflective background when held under light, are 1:3 packs. Color-based Refractors come in Purple (/250), Blue (/150), Green (/99), Blue Wave (/75), Gold (/50), Orange (/25), Red (/10), Red Wave (/10) and Superfractors (1/1).
Autographs and Inserts
Autographs adopt the same general design as the base set. That also means a similar Refractor parallel structure: Blue (/150), Green (/99), Blue Wave (/75), Gold (/50), Orange (/25), Red (/10), Red Wave (/10) and Superfractors (1/1).
Of the three regular insert sets in 2018-19 Topps Chrome Bundesliga Soccer, a couple carry over from other Chrome sets. Superstar Sensations can be found in the Premier League set as well as 2018 Topps Chrome Baseball. The checklist consists of a top player from every team.
Future Stars, which are also inserted in the Premier League and UEFA sets, spotlight young talent.
Finally, there’s Top XI, an original set of inserts dedicated to goal scorers.
All three 2018-19 Topps Chrome Bundesliga Soccer insert sets have Gold Refractor (/50), Orange Refractor (/25), Red Refractor (/10) and Superfractor (1/1) parallels. Select cards also have autographs.
