One of the most anticipated products of the year, 2012 Topps Chrome Football, is set to hit shelves Nov. 9. This year's hobby product promises to be one of the best ever, loaded with on-card autographs, autographed patch cards, dual autograph and triple autographed cards.
In addition, the uber popular '65 Tall Boys, the iconic '84 design and classic 1957 card have all been chromed and signed on card.

We have made a huge effort on this years Topps Chrome FB to focus on on-card autographs, while we have secured the majority of players and the top rookies to sign on-card, we have struggled to have all players sign in timely manner. As a result, this years Topps Chrome Football in the hobby will include a higher percentage of redemptions vs. what we typically would like, the following rookies will be signing shortly but will all be redemptions in Topps Chrome Football: Dwayne Allen, LaMichael James, Bernard Pierce, Russell Wilson, Mark Barron, Dre Kirkpatrick, Stephen Hill, Brian Quick, Matt Kalil.
For those collectors receiving a redemption card of these subjects, we have created a special bonus pack for you that you will receive when your autograph is returned. Each redeemed autograph will be accompanied with a four-card pack of exclusive Topps Chrome Football Blue Wave Refractor Rookie Parallels. There are 110 different rookie cards in all, including 10 new subjects that are not found in the base product, including Alfred Morris, Josh Gordon, Daryl Richardson, Brandon Bolden, Bobby Wagner, Vontaze Burfict, Jorvorskie Lane, Greg Zuerlein, K, Joseph Morgan, Rod Streater, Bryce Brown and Damaris Johnson,
In addition, we will also randomly insert special autographed Topps Chrome rookie cards of standout Redskins running back Alfred Morris into these packs. These autos are not found in the base Topps Chrome product. A late-breaking deal allowed us to add to these special redemption packs.
