Topps Will Buy Back the Duplicate 2023 Bowman Chrome SuperFractors

Topps Will Buy Back the Duplicate 2023 Bowman Chrome SuperFractors

A "SuperFractor" card is a 1/1 parallel; only one card ever exists! Not unless there is a printing error, that is. Topps accidently printed duplicate SuperFractors in their 2023 Bowman Baseball release. Topps is offering to buy back the duplicate cards and the price tags are a staggering sum! The buyback price for one of the cards is $75,000.

The SuperFractor card is the ultimate pull. There is just one single SuperFractor created for the card, and is THE card of the product to own. These 1/1 parallel cards are the centerpieces of collections. When Topps released their 2023 Bowman Chrome baseball product on September 13th, a few heads turned when more than one SuperFractor was noticed. Topps indeed accidently printed duplicate 1/1 cards for 95 players. 

Topps is making up for the mistake by offering a buyback program. If you pull one of the duplicate SuperFractors, Topps will purchase the card from you. The values Topps is offering is quite the dollar amount!

A few example prices:

  • Hans Montero of the Yankees = $7,000


    Luis Guanipa of the Braves = $10,000 

  • Rayner Arias of the Giants = $25,000

The top card to be on the look out for is Ethan Salas of the Padres; the buyback price is $75,000!

Each 2023 Bowman Chrome hobby box will come with 12 packs, and each pack has 5 cards. You'll find two autographed cards, a Prospect Shimmer Parallel, and a Prospect Insert. The odds of a SuperFractor are long given their scarcity; these cards fill one in 116,408 packs.

You can see a photo of each card, the card code, the value, and status of the buyback for each card HERE.
