Default 1st Ever Case Break - 2013 Topps Finest - Quite Fun and Complete Break Down

So I finally decided to do my first ever case break and I've always have loved Finest and I'd say I was rewarded too

I only had TWO... TWO Redemptions in my case which I was very pleased by! One of them was probably my biggest hit ever right next to my Griffey Ultimate Chase Card!

Please note this is going to be a pretty detailed breakdown of my case (minus the refractors) because I'm weird like that. I counted off the rookie cards I didn't have much of. All other rookies I had at least 5+ of each. The ones below were hard to come by!



Rookie Total Card Count:
Puig : 4 (3 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Myers : 6 (4 Base ; 2 Refractors)
Cole : 4 (3 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Fernandez : 4 (3 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Ryu : 4 (3 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Machado : (4 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Bundy : 4 (3 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Zunino : 4 (3 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Skaggs : 3 (All Base)
Wheeler : 4 (3 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Gyorko : 4 (All Base)
Rendon : 4 (All Base)
Gattis : 5 (4 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Miller : 4 (All Base)
Rosenthal : 4 (3 Base ; 1 Refractor)
Wacha : 3 (2 Base ; 1 X-Fractor)

Quality Control:
3 Mis-cut Base Cards - (Wacha, Gibson, Gregorius) You can acutally see part of the player that was above them on the sheet when they cut it
Machado - 1 Base card has a dimple on top left

Overall I was VERY happy with my case sure I didn't get SICK patches but I feel is was a pretty good case, the buyback autograph was an amazing hit and I did get a few autos of the big rookies which made me happy.

I may be busting another case of this next month, I love this stuff!

And the damage:
