Mention Topps Chrome and thoughts are likely to go to shiny card stock and an abundance of colorful Refractors. Over the past two decades, that’s what the brand has carved out as its primary niche. Like recent years, the 2015 Topps Chrome Baseball Refractor rainbow presents one of the year’s bigger challenges for player collectors determined to get every card of their favorite.

2015 Topps Chrome Baseball base cards have 11 different Refractors to go with them. Pink and Sepia are both retail exclusives. The rest can be found in all types of packs. In addition to these, there are four one-of-one Printing Plates — one for each color of the commercial printing process.

The rainbow gets even bigger when collectors expand into the Rookie Autographs. In addition to the regular version, there are eight types of serial-numbered Rookie Autograph Refractors plus Printing Plates. These cover all of the basic Refractor colors except for Prism and the retail-only Pink and Sepia.

Get a look at the full 2015 Topps Chrome Baseball Refractor rainbow after the jump.

    This is part of why I never ever buy packs of cards again. All these parallels get in the way of completing a base set, and within months of release few of them have any real value when trying to resell them. I really am sick and tired of this crap. I’ve been collecting for over 30 years, and I am on the verge of walking away from the hobby forever.

    Matthew, then why not just buy the base set online somewhere? I see them on ebay for around $35-$40 right now. That’s roughly $25-$30 less than buying a hobby box which even if there wasn’t parallels wouldn’t be enough to complete a set, so then you have to buy another box costing even more money anyways.

    or just stick to vintage. don’t walk away. i look at it as the more junk they put out that in the end vintage will be more appreciated and go up
