REVIEW:2018-2019 Topps Chrome Bundesliga Soccer

Another chrome release??? Um yes please!

This time we take a look at the greats from German football league. This is the first time a Bundesliga product gets its first traditional release to get full distribution in the United States. So should be interesting how that goes.

The format in chrome sticks to the same format as other sport releases. So let's check it out.
In every box of 2018-2019 Topps Chrome Bundesliga soccer has 18 packs of 4 cards per pack. There is one autograph per box and each box costs $55 roughly.

There are 90 cards in the base set with all of the stars. The base card design is riding the wave of the baseball one.

There are lots of parallels to chase as well as you would expect with a chrome product. My box didn't come with any base refractors and was full of color ones instead. There are supposed to be roughly 6 base ones per box but I am not complaining with all this color.

Blue are /150 that fall 1:8 packs

Blue Wave /75 falls 1:15 packs

Green /99 and falls 1:15 packs

Gold /50 that falls 1:29 packs

Orange /25 that falls 1:58 odds.

Other parallels to find are
Red /10, Red Wave /10, and SuperFractor 1/1.

Now time for the inserts. All inserts have the following parallels, Gold /50, Orange /25, Red /10, and SuperFractor 1/1.

Top 11 falls 1:108 and has 11 cards

Superstar Sensations falls 1:5 and has 18 cards to collect

Future Stars falls 1:6 packs and has 18 cards to chase.

And a slight boom of a red parallel that falls 1:717 packs. These are /10 as I stated above and this was a pretty solid player to find by my research.

And my autograph pull. A gold /50.

Other hits to find not in my box include,
  • Future Stars Autograph
  • Superstar Sensations Autograph
  • Top XI Autograph
OVERALL THOUGHTS: It's chrome people!!! Those of us in the hobby will eat this right up and if we are die hard soccer fans and watch this league that's even better. Will be interesting to see how this product does in the U.S. but even though I don't know a lot of the names I still enjoyed breaking this box and finding the ones I do know.

Another way to possibly break this product to try it out without having to pay full box price was to talk a breaker into breaking some.Which I suggest Midwest Box Breaks when you do so.

Please make sure to take a minute out to thank Topps for providing this box for me to review and to be able to add cards to the giveaway on Twitter I am hosting. Please follow me there to enter @SportCardCollec. Also follow Topps on all social media sites and visit their SITE, as well.


  1. I love Chrome. I'm not willing to fork up the $$$ to buy a box... but I love the look of this product.
