THE BRUTAL TRUTH ABOUT THE PRODUCT

Here is why you should be careful with diving into 2021 Topps Chrome.

Total RC AUTOS in 2021: 133 

Yes, 133 different RC autos. To put that in perspective, here is what the last 3 years have had.

  • 2020: 77
  • 2019: 76
  • 2018: 72

There is a LOT of junk. Seriously, there will be nearly 100 RC Base Auto’s that will be worth $10 or less by next month. The amount of frustrating “hits” will be high. The silver lining is that this will drive the top names up significantly higher than other years. Guys like Kelenic and Vaughn will be highly sought after.

Also…..

These top names – Jarred Kelenic & Andrew Vaughn do NOT have base RC cards. That degrades the value of holding wax. Kelenic does have a Super Short Print (SSP). There are going to be very few of them….  but if there are any, they are below:

Let’s talk through the Top 15 guys… but keep in mind these prices will shift downward in the coming days and a few of the guys we are projecting based on listed prices.

Also, keep in mind that colored parallels can be hard to project in the early stages. But a pretty good barometer to use is the following chart. This is based on some top names from the past few years and should be a simple starting point to help you know price to pay/sell for a colored auto.

This is not an exact science…especially with the low #’d parallels.
