Here are the details: https://www.beckett.com/news/2...hings-trading-cards/

No word of autographs/patches/sketches per box.

They're going all-in on the old-school with card stock like they've used in Star Wars/Indiana Jones Heritage. And a couple of different sets of stickers.

This is great. Thanks for sharing Ryan. Wish they'd included sticks of gum though to make it totally retro. They did it with the Indiana Heritage series, which I bought when it was out new and gum tasted pretty good too. Thumb Up

Does this mean PARALLEL AUTOGRAPHS? And do the colours refer to the card boarders/design or signature ink?

"Autographs lead the premium insert chase. Besides the regular versions, these have Orange (/99), Green (/50), Purple (/25), Blue (/10) and Gold (1/1) parallels."

Super stoked for this set but the amount of parallels as 'chase' cards and extremely low number runs (1/1 or #/10) on hits is a bit depressing to say the least Shake Head

Auto colors are likely borders. Topps has not resorted to the colored ink gimmick yet.

Yes, it's loaded with parallels. But honestly if you don't like parallels, just ignore them. Unless you hit a 1/1 then run out and sell the thing.

The only thing that is really going to be tough is any dual or triple, being numbered to 10.

And to comment on the gum reference from the previous post...

Topps is not likely to do gum any longer. Adding gum to the product makes it a food product and requires special handling including nutrition labels and "best by" dates. It complicates things greatly in the current world of food products.
