2019 Topps Chrome Baseball Image Variations Gallery and Guide


The 2019 Topps Chrome Baseball Image Variations are taking a familiar route. Rather than offering up strictly short-printed versions of base cards, they’re Refractors. Of course, the photos are different as well.

The checklist has a total of 25 players. It’s a mix of stars and some of the top rookies heading into the season.

Similar to recent years, the variations also have additional color-based parallels. These also come with serial numbers. We should have full details on the rainbow shortly.

Topps Chrome Factory Set Variations

While there are several rookies with variations lurking in 2019 Topps Chrome Baseball packs, some of the year’s biggest aren’t among them. This includes Pete Alonso, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Fernando Tatis Jr.

However, they do have special variations under the Topps Chrome banner. These are exclusive to a specially marked 2019 Topps Baseball factory set. They’re actually Chrome versions with different photos of their respective flagship cards. That means the cards numbers match their respective 2019 Topps Series 2 cards, not Topps Chrome.

Players with factory set variations are:

410 Fernando Tatis Jr., San Diego Padres
475 Pete Alonso, New York Mets
632 Yusei Kikuchi, Seattle Mariners
670 Eloy Jimenez, Chicago White Sox
700 Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Toronto Blue Jays

Of these, only Kikuchi has a variation in 2019 Topps Chrome Baseball (#73).

2019 Topps Chrome Baseball Variations Codes

You can use the card backs to confirm whether you have one of the 2019 Topps Chrome Baseball variations. It’s not obvious at first glance, but if you scan through the fine print at the bottom, there’s a code at the end. These are used as part of the production to identify different types of cards — like base versus variations.

When it comes to variations in this set, these are the code endings you need to know:

  • Base – 4369
  • Variations – 4409

Basically, if you have a card with a CMP code that ends in 4409, you’ve got an Image Variation.

    I pulled a couple of variations out of 2019 Donruss football, and I have to say, I like how easy they make them to identify … they actually put “V” under the card number. No fine print needed!
