2020-21 Topps Chrome Sapphire Bundesliga is a condensed version of the main release with the base set and select chase elements getting a bit of a makeover. It’s also a much more limited release.
The base set has the same 100 cards as 2020-21 Topps Chrome Bundesliga. However, cards have a blue motif as well as a background that’s similar to Topps’ Atomic Refractors in other products.
Parallels include Orange (/125), Yellow (/99), Green (/75), Gold (/50), Purple (/25), Red (/5) and Padparadscha (1/1).
The Future Stars insert set also resurfaces on the 2020-21 Topps Chrome Sapphire Bundesliga checklist. These have six levels of parallels.
Autographs are also available, although they’re extremely tough at 1:351 packs.
Like other Sapphire sets, boxes arrived as an online exclusive. However, rather than Topps 582 Montgomery Club members getting first crack like most other products under the banner, these were made available to the public through Topps’ European sites.
