2014 Chrome series
« on: April 30, 2022, 01:13:07 PM »
This is one of the sets that came out while I was away from the hobby. Is is cool? I see it is titles from die cuts, 2nd and 3rd series, so I already have these stickers. Are the regular chrome stickers chrome, or just the backgrounds? I see the refractor cards are chase cards…..

The base cards are all chrome throughout, similar to ANS foil insert cards.  I may have raised this question previously, but does anyone know why there was no follow-up set(s)?  This set reprinted several titles for the first and only time, which to me was a pretty big deal.  I still prefer conventional stickers to the flashy stuff, but what the heck, can’t have everything like you want it.  The abandoning of further Chrome releases leaves a hole similar to never seeing a 3rd Abrams book .....

Is the 110 card base set all different titles? Or 55 regular titles and 55 refractor titles? I see on the backs, they say #32 out of 107. Oddly, Greg’s site has no information about the chrome set….

It's 110 OS titles, with the last three being checklists.

The base set is a combination of three Wacky series - the Die-Cuts (all 44 of them), the 2nd Series and the 3rd Series. The last three are the checklists for each series with a borderless picture of the Topps Wacky on each one.

Nope.
The last three are images of the three completed puzzles.

Thank you for the Master List info. I try not to compare sites, but Greg’s site has no info on chrome or the 2015 set…

I went all in for the Alternate Art/ Mixed Up Characters Chase Subset of 9 Cards.  They were inserted 1/ 1500 packs and were quite difficult to pull. I pulled 3 out a few thousand packs I purchased and traded for or purchased the rest. They make up one of my favorite grail sets.  Here is a bad pic of 3 of them. I can't locate other pics right now.

while traveling in Asia back in 2015 I handed a bunch of these chromes to kids begging on the streets of Cambodia, Thailand and Laos....  most kids liked them, but some were not happy it wasn't money...  :0
