Baseball  2013 Finest  4 Cases
I normally don't break Finest & only buy singles but the throwback inserts combined with the great RC class sucked me in. Preordered 2 cases & ended up adding another 2 at what (at the time) was a really great price.
Case recap by the numbers  Case 1: Autos  8 x On card autos  1 Xfractor (Odorizzi), 7 base Base = Shelby Miller, Mike Zunino, Tony Cingrani, Mike Zunino, Brandon Maurer, Jake Odorizzi, Didi Gregorius 8 x Relic Autos  1 Red (Gregorius), 1 Gold (Eaton), 1 Orange (Maurer), 1 Green (Hicks), 1 Xfractor (Olt), 3 Base Base = Casey Kelly, Bruce Rondon, Mike Zunino Inserts  1 box with zero inserts!, 1 box with 2 inserts 1 x 1993 Refractor /25 Jordan Zimmerman 1 x Prodigies (Stanton) 1 x All Stars Base (Kimbrel) 5 x 1993 Base #ed parallels  2 boxes with 2, all the rest had 1 2 x Gold (Miller, Lee) 3 x Orange (Gibson, Butler, Gyorko) 5 x Green (Jeter, Wacha) 16 x Xfractors (Wheeler, Machado) 32 x Refractors (Fernandez, Puig, Gattis) 4 x Puig base Case 2: Autos  Had 4 Ryu Relic autos come out of 4 boxes in a row 8 x On card autos  1 Orange (Gyorko), 1 Green (Zunino), 1 Xfractor (Ferandez), 5 base Base = Mike Zunino, Dylan Bundy, Brandon Maurer, Adam Eaton, HyunJin Ryu 8 x Relic Autos  1 Gold (Ryu), 1 Orange (Ryu), 1 Green (Ryu), 5 Base Base = Jurickson Profar, Nolan Arenado, Avisail Garcia, HyunJin Ryu, Mike Olt Inserts  1 box with zero inserts! 1 x Masters Refractor /50 Josh Hamilton 2 x All Stars Base (Darvish, Braun) 4 x 1993 Base #ed parallels  2 boxes with 2, all the rest had 1 2 x Gold (Mauer, Howard) 3 x Orange (Puig!, Weaver, Darvish) 5 x Green (Gausman, Harper) 16 x Xfractors (Wheeler, Machado, Bundy) 32 x Refractors (Profar x 2, Cole x 2, Gattis, Myers) 3 x Puig base Case 3: Autos  8 x On card autos  1 Black Printing Plate (Machado!!!), 1 Orange (Martinez), 1 Green (Gibson), 1 Xfractor (Gyorko), 4 base Base = L.J. Hoes, Dylan Bundy, Tony Cingrani, Jeurys Familia 8 x Relic Autos  1 Orange (Rendon), 2 Green (Maurer, Gregorius), 1 Xfractor (Fernandez), 4 Base Base = Christian Yelich, Dylan Bundy, Mike Olt, Didi Gregorius Inserts  1 box with zero inserts!, 1 box with 2 1 x 1993 Refractor /25 Gio Gonzalez 2 x All Stars Base (Sale, Longoria) 5 x 1993 Base #ed parallels  2 boxes with 2, all the rest had 1 1 x Gold (Skaggs) 4 x Orange (Strasburg, Cingrani, Wainwright, Fernandez!) 5 x Green (Zunino, Profar) 16 x Xfractors (Fernandez) 32 x Refractors (Myers, Bundy) 5 x Puig base Case 4: This was a really crazy case. 7 of the 8 boxes the first two or three cards in each pack were refractors. One of the eight boxes was a refractor hot box. Looks like some packaging screw up. Definitely not complaining but it really throws off set creation since the base tends to have the same position in the packs hence I have 58 refractors of some guys with no base ! Definitely was fun & amusing to rip. Autos  8 x On card autos  1 Red (Odorizzi), 2 Green (Gyorko, Gregorius), 1 Xfractor (Profar), 4 base Base = Mike Zunino, Jake Odorizzi, Adeiny Hechavarria, Dylan Bundy 8 x Relic Autos  1 Gold (Brantley), 1 Orange (Rondon), 2 Green (Brantley, Miller), 1 Xfractor (Wheeler), 3 Base Base = Jedd Gyorko, Nolan Arenado, Brandon Maurer Inserts  3 boxes with zero inserts!!!!, 1 box with 2 1 x 1993 Refractor /25 Curtis Granderson 1 x All Stars Base (Cano) 4 x 1993 Base (Puig!) #ed parallels  4 boxes with 2, all the rest had 1 1 x Gold (Freese) 4 x Orange (Trout, Howard, Encarnacion, Cingrani) 7 x Green (Wheeler) 16 x Xfractors (Bundy) 32 x Refractors (Puig x 2, Wheeler x 5, Machado x 5, Fernandez x 3, Bundy x 5, Gattis x 2, Ryu, Profar, Cole, Miller) 5 x Puig base Link to a google doc with the box by box breakdown: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...rive_web#gid=0 I felt like the first two cases were mostly a train wreck. Made me want to sell the next two cases but those really saved the break for me. Reminded me why I don't normally break finest because of how hit or miss the product can be. Color showed up at a decently good rate & overall felt the distribution on auto names was solid (except for Ryu following me for one case & Zunino throughout the break  decently good names though ). I was mostly disappointed by the inserts  my refractor hits were all of pretty bad names. Overall: Fun Factor  4/5 Value  2/5 (Very boom/bust) Almost everything is FS. Will be working on getting a b/s/t post up which I will link here when live. Bigger hits will also go on ebay. Please pm interest thanks! Sale thread here: FS: 2013 Finest Baseball Autos, Relic, Color Refractors, Inserts; Machado Auto Plate Also working on getting a summary post like this done for my 10 cases of 2013 Baseball Topps Chrome so look for that soon! Any feedback on format would be much appreciated too so I can apply it to that larger post Pics of all the hits: Relic autos  Base Autos  #ed Parallels  Inserts

I'd take a price on all the Odorizzi autos if still available
