First Buzz: 2016 Topps Chrome Sapphire Edition baseball cards

What:
2016 Topps Chrome Sapphire Edition baseball cards
Arrives: Wednesday (Aug. 24)
Box basics: Thirteen bonus parallels and two Superfractors per set

The Basics: The 700-card 2016 Topps set gets Chromed for a factory set limited to only 250 copies that will only initially be sold via Topps.com. The sets will be Blue Sapphire for the 65th anniversary of Topps baseball cards. More details will come soon — that or at least the cards will. … One important nugget? Players who have Superfractors in 2016 Topps Chrome will not have a Superfractor in this release. While card numbers are not the same between Topps and Topps Chrome, that helps keep things simpler for those eyeing Supers and helps the math work out on the production run. Update: The sets are now live on Topps.com with a price of $1,500 per set.
