2022 Topps Chrome Sonic Baseball offers one final go on the year’s main Topps Chrome set. What exactly it entails and how it’ll be distributed is not yet known. Could it involve a video game hedgehog? Cheeseburgers and milkshakes? Probably not. That time will come.

And while we might not know the twist Topps Chrome Sonic brings to the table, we do have a checklist.

2022 Topps Chrome Sonic Baseball Checklist Overview

The 225-card base set lines up with 2022 Topps Chrome Baseball. Exactly. This includes the five rookie short prints at the end of the checklist that were originally left out of regular hobby packs. It’s also another place to find Aaron Judge and Paul Goldschmidt cards that can be traded for $20 or more in store credit at participating shops through the MVP Buyback program.

That said, the cards themselves are not exactly the same. There’s a very minor change that covers virtually the entire base set that will likely add a layer of confusion. Standard Topps Chrome cards have the set’s logo on the right. Sonic base cards have it on the left. The RC badge is also bigger on Sonic base cards.

For the small number of cards that have the logo in the same spot, the CMP codes in the fine print on that back are another way to differentiate Topps Chrome and Sonic versions. Regular Topps Chrome cards end in 967. For Topps Chrome Sonic, it’s 439.

What really makes Topps Chrome Sonic “Sonic” is the parallels. Collectors can expect a mix of exclusive in including:

  • Black and White RayWave Refractors – 4 per box
  • Purple/Yellow Sonic Refractors – /299
  • Aqua RayWave Refractors – /199
  • Aqua/Pink Sonic Refractors – /199
  • Green RayWave Refractors – /99
  • Green/Yellow Sonic Refractors – /99
  • Blue/Yellow Sonic Refractors – /75
  • Gold RayWave Refractors – /50
  • Orange/Black Sonic Refractors – /25
  • Red/Black Sonic Pulse Refractors
  • Red RayWave Refractors

Autographs and Inserts

All of the autographs available in 2022 Topps Chrome Sonic Lite Baseball are multi-signature cards. Dual Autographs and Triple Autographs have a variety of combinations including teammates, generational talents at specific positions and rookies.

Two other insert sets round out the checklist, neither of which is in 2022 Topps Chrome Baseball.

1996 Youthquake draws its inspiration from an insert set in the inaugural Topps Chrome Basketball release.

There’s also the 25-card Expose.
