2020 Topps Chrome Sapphire Formula 1 puts a different, more limited spin on the main release. Available as an online exclusive, it puts a familiar patterned twist on the base set. It’s a near identical approach to what has been done with several baseball releases in the past and, more recently, Garbage Pail Kids and UEFA Soccer.
At its core, 2020 Topps Chrome Sapphire Formula 1 takes the entire 200-card base set and prints it on Sapphire stock. Basically, it’s a patterned background similar to what collectors will find on many of Topps’ Atomic Refractors or Panini’s Cracked Ice cards.
Additional parallels are available in different colors, although specifics have not yet been announced. They combine with short print variations to land four per hobby box, which works out to 1:2 packs.
Boxes are exclusive to the Topps…
