    I don’t understand the speculation to even mention bowman chrome refractory /499? There are none

      @Larry — That is why there is a mention that they may not exist. Topps hasn’t confirmed it. And it wouldn’t be the first time that something similar hasn’t popped up elsewhere. If by the end of the year they’re still not around, the small reference will be removed from the article.
