Any predictions as to when we can expect a checklist for this?
What keeps Topps from releasing it already? Is it a question of trying to get as many players in the checklist as possible?

I think it's a combination of this ^^^^, plus, and I'm just speculating, they want us to buy a whole bunch of it up sight unseen because of who we THINK is going to be in it.

Wouldnt it be a kick in the nards if Puig only has base cards?

Even if it's "just" case cards, that includes the parallels. I got $350 for a BGS 9.5 Red Harper /25 last year.

Topps would be foolish not to include him in TC this year! I'm sitting on blowout, ready to click to order button on a case, but I'm still having trouble pulling the trigger on it.
Anybody care to convince me to pick one up?

Sinking suspicion Nick Franklin, Brad Miller AND Mike Zunino will have autos in it, or at least be in it, period

Did that do it?

That's getting there! I'm thinking that at $760, this is one of the best values you can get out of a case this year. Agreed?

Yes, Topps Chrome at that price is a really fun break. Guaranteed 2 autos per box and a handful of color. Always a fun break.

Couldn't agree more. They added box toppers to this year's product, as well included those Chase cards, whatever they are.

I'm in the minority I suppose but I think 2013 Finest cases are going to go off like a missile.

I think it will depend on how quickly the inserts take off.

And I think this will also give us an indication on how TC will be. If Finest is loaded with redemptions, TC won't shoot up. But if most are live, including Puig, both products will be impossible to find at less than 1000 a case.

That's what I was thinking. The 1996 reboot is going to be popular with new and old collectors alike.

Topps got me with Finest as soon as I saw the sell sheet. I got that warm fuzzy when I saw the retro inserts. I've never bought a case before and found myself buying one TC and Finest. Touche Topps.

I'd like to do the same but can only afford one case at this time. It was tough choosing between the two, but I like all the parallels that TC has this year plus the box toppers. I will be getting a box of finest though just to enjoy it a little.

I am pretty tempted to order a case of this stuff, but I'm taking my car into the dealership on Saturday for maintenance and I'd be really surprised if there wasn't SOMETHING wrong with it that needed fixing haha. But if there isn't then maybe...

Last case of Finest I opened was 2011...ended up pulling a Mike Trout RC Auto /25 that I sold WAY too soon. I will not do that to myself again, so I will never buy Finest again.

Sound logic, right?

I have this feeling too, but have 2 more cases of chrome coming. Feel like I should add more of each to open more and hold more

Many ramen noodle nights for me.

I haven't busted wax for over a year. Put aside some coin and will finally put it to use.

Funny what some of us collectors do to make sure we're good financially after dropping a months rent on cardboard haha. I'm selling my iPad mini to have a little extra cash. Crossing my fingers it's going to be worth it!

I'm in on the Finest x2 cases! May go for a 3rd.
I see they have hot boxes as well. Wonder what the odds on getting 1 are?

Last hot box I hit was in 1996 with Finest basketball. Jordan and kobe rookie refractors!
Made over $4k on that 1 box

I've never bought a case and this is going to be my 1st one. They say it comes out September 18th, will I receive my case on the 18th or does it ship that day?

Depends where you ordered from. BO and other big sellers generally have the product in time to ship to you so you have it that day for case purchases. I think boxes ship on release day.

If you buy from BO and choose the free shipping option, you should get it the Friday after it launches, as they typically drop ship the Monday before it launches. If you upgrade shipping to 2-day, you should have your case on launch day.

Boxes are shipped day of release, as they can't crack the cases open until then...

Imagine it coming to Alaska! Thankfully all USPS priority shipping gets here in
2-3 days so it shouldn't be too long of a wait. Going to be tough to not look at breaks, knowing what I won't have the chance of pulling haha. Should be exciting though

I'm pretty excited for Topps Chrome this year. I'll be in for 3 cases...2 personal, and one for a random group break.

Have you guys seen the Die-Cut connections cards that are going to be in there? I think they are one of the coolest looking die-cuts Topps has made.
