2022 Topps Chrome Update isn’t available quite yet and details are still sparse. But the product is starting to get some buzz, so we thought we would loop in collectors to know what we know so far about this highly-anticipated product.
Let’s take a look at what we might be able to expect and what we don’t know yet about 2022 Topps Chrome Update.
The 2022 Topps Chrome Update release is scheduled for December 14, 2022 (subject to change).
Previous Topps Chrome Update releases in 2021 and 2020 have been retail-only offerings in blaster or mega box format. Sometimes both. It is likely that 2022 follows the same path.
We don’t know much about exactly what 2022 Topps Chrome Update will hold, but we can make a few educated guesses.
And a few things we’re not sure about yet:
One of the big questions, and a big component of the value that 2022 Topps Chrome will offer, is what rookies will be included?
With 2022 Topps Chrome, that’s been a sticky topic. Shortly after the initial release of 2022 Topps Chrome, it became clear that a number of the big hits, including many top rookies, were not included in packs.
We’ve already explored what rookies are in the set, in A Breakdown Of The Best 2022 Topps Chrome Rookies Actually In The Set.
So, will the rookies originally left out of the Topps Chrome product, and later included in the Silver Packs, be included in 2022 Topps Update? These players include Bobby Witt Jr., Julio Rodriguez, Spencer Torkelson, Hunter Greene, and CJ Adams.
If 2022 Topps Chrome includes these popular rookies, it will raise the floor for the product significantly and could make it a popular choice for collectors.
