2013 Topps Chrome Football arrives Wednesday at Sports Cards Plus. Last year, we sold out of 2012 Topps Chrome Football in less than two weeks. 2012 Topps Chrome Football Hobby Box prices are currently at $180 a box.
I know, 2012 was the best football year of all time. Everyone was skeptical of the 2013 rookie crop, and greatly reduced their orders of 2013 Topps Chrome. As a result of the reduced orders, this year's production of Topps Chrome is greatly reduced from 2012. Topps Chrome Football has continued its winning formula and we have several rookies who are having great years (Tavon Austin is the latest "break-out rookie.").
Boxes of 2013 Topps Chrome Football are starting at $69.95 at Sports Cards Plus! AND BEST PULL (box must be open in our store to win) from our initial shipment of 2013 Topps Chrome Football WINS $100.00 at Sports Cards Plus.
