2016 Topps Finest Baseball may not have been available in every sports card shop, but for those “MVP Direct” stores and others who’ve been able to acquire it, Finest has been a pretty strong seller.
Master boxes include two mini-boxes with six packs and five cards in each, all printed on Topps Chrome technology.
2016 Finest includes a 100-card base set featuring rookies and veterans on “chrome technology,” plus 10 short prints. Parallels include refractors, Prism, purple, blue, green, gold, orange (numbered to 25), red (5) and 1/1 SuperFractors.
Finest Firsts Autograph cards are new with the subset commemorating a major-league rookie’s first appearance in the Topps Finest portfolio. There are no blue parallels for this subset, but collectors can pull green, gold, orange (numbered to 25), red (5), 1/1 SuperFractors and 1/1 printing plates.
Finest Originals have hard-signed signatures of Topps Finest buybacks from the past 20-plus years.
