Not due out until August but if first looks are any sign I like the design of this years alot.

Product Highlights/Details:

According to an "inside" source, this year's Topps Chrome will not suffer from a bad case of the "Bowman Bends". Last year they apparently used a different printing company for Topps and Bowman Chrome, that's why those two were suffered from the bends far worse than 2010 Bowman Baseball or 2010 Bowman Draft.

220 card base set - 170 veterans, 50 rookies
Rookie Autograph Checklist will include: Freddie Freeman, Tsuyoshi Nishioka, Brandon Belt, Michael Pineda, Zach Britton, Chris Sale, Kyle Drabek, Mike Minor and more! Every autograph will be of the on-card variety.
1/1 Canary Parallels will be present as they were in 2011 Topps Baseball, only these will be chromed out versions. Another new parallel inclusion will be Sepia Refractors /99.
USA Baseball Autograph Redemptions featuring 2011 Collegiate National Team including new Diamond Die-Cut Refractor Versions in addition to your typical refractology.
NEW USA Baseball Team Set Redemptions - Pull one, win the US National team set!
60th Anniversary Autographs
Vintage 1996 Topps Chrome Insert Set
Refractology - 1/1 Superfractors, 1/1 Canary Diamond Parallels (no auto versions), 1/4 Printing Plates (tis true), Red Refractors /25, Gold Refractors /50, Sepia Refractors, Blue Refractors /199 and Standard Refractors (standard refractor autographs /499, non-auto not numbered).
Notable Insert Sets - 2011 Heritage Chrome (regular /1962, black bordered /100), Vintage Chrome

Whole article with photos
