2016 Topps Chrome Sapphire Edition baseball cards
Arrives: Wednesday (Aug. 24)

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 with a price of $1,500 per set.
