Topps Chrome will be available in August with a host of new additions, including die-cut cards and Chrome buybacks.

The Dynamic Die Cuts feature 50 stars of the game on die-cut refractor technology – autographed versions will be numbered to 25 or less. And finally, the Cut from the Same Cloth cards will feature autographs on both sides of the card and numbered to 5.
