2022 Topps Chrome Sapphire Update release date & release formats

2022 Topps Chrome Sapphire Update dropped on January 11, 2023 as an exclusive on Topps website. In previous years, the product was also available at Target, so this is another change for this year.

Hobby packs of 2022 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire contain four cards per pack. Hobby boxes contain 8 packs per box.

2022 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire does not guarantee any autographed hits in a box, but it does guarantee two serial numbered parallels per box, numbered to 99 copies or less. In the past, the product guaranteed one autograph per box, so we’ll have to see how collectors react to the new hits.

Hobby boxes were selling on Topps web site for $129.99, but sold out in a matter of hours. Confirmed sales on eBay have been in the $200-220 range, with many boxes listed in the area of $230-260.

2022 Topps Chrome Sapphire Update parallels

At the time of publishing, the full slate of parallels is not yet known. We do know that all parallels are numbered to 99 copies each or fewer.

2022 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire autographs

The 2022 Topps Chrome Update offers one autograph offering in the form of Rookie Autographs.

This 14-card set offers autographs of some of the best rookies in the game and is ultra-limited, with each card limited to 25 copies or fewer.

2022 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire value

2022 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire quickly sold out on for $129.99. Prices on the secondary market are already showing confirmed sales in the $200-220 range, with many boxes listed in the area of $230-260. How does this compare to prior years?


It is an imperfect comparison for certain since prior offerings were available at Target in addition to and guaranteed one autograph per box.

Both the 2021 and 2020 products are selling for less than a 2022 box on the secondary market at this point. While this might suggest that these boxes are not a good buy-and-hold candidate, this may not necessarily be the case.

With any update set, the long-term prospects of the box greatly depend on the quality of the rookies included. If you believe in the 2022 rookie class (and it looks like a strong one at this point), this box has potential.

Final thoughts on 2022 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire

With a premium high-chrome look, some tough parallel pulls and some really interesting (and very limited) autographs, there’s a lot to like in 2022 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire.

It has the making of a fun rip, with only eight 4-card packs per box. That is, of course, if you can find a box.
