Default Case of 2011 Topps Finest - Box by Box Recap (Purple Strasburg Auto /5)

Hey guys,

I saw Guru's thread the other day about best value boxes/cases. Decided to order a case of 2011 Topps Finest.

Glad I did, here are the hits through the first 2 boxes:

Box 1:
Darwin Barney RC ref /549
Dan Uggla ref /549
Robinson Cano ref /549
Alex Cobb RC xfractor /299
Dillon Gee RC green ref /199
Brian McCann orange ref /99
Brett Wallace RC ref auto /499
Jordan Walden green ref dual jersey auto /149
Cliff Lee Finest Moments jersey auto /274

Box 2: - probably one of the best boxes I've ever opened
Tim lincecum Finest Foundation orange ref (not #'d)
Andre Ethier ref /549
Eduardo Sanchez RC ref /549
Daniel Descalso RC xfractor /299
Matt Kemp xfractor /299
Prince Fielder green ref /199
Zack Greinke gold ref /50
Zach Britton RC ref auto /499
Dustin Ackley RC ref auto /499

And...

Stephen Strasburg Finest Moments purple ref jersey auto 4/5
^not thrilled about the auto bleeding a bit, but #5/5 sold on eBay for $300+ in early May so I can't complain

Not bad considering I still have 6 boxes to go

Scans will follow later, here's the big one for now
