Default Topps Finest 4 Box Case (Terrible Stuff)

These are the results of a 4 box case which cost me $475.00 today.

Autos: (*Note - Topps sell sheet says these are all seq. numbered, but none of them are numbered at all, another bait and switch Topps move)

D. Jackson Green Xfractor #/25 Redemption
L. Sweed
K. Smith
A. Arrington
D. Keller
K. Burton
J. Johnson
A. Morelli
A. Patrick
D. Avery
A. Caldwell
M. Manningham

RC #/699 - Flacco, C. Johnson, J. Stewart, D. Jackson, J. Hardy, D. Thomas, M. Hart, H. Douglas, S. Slaton, J. Charles, K. Burton

Other notable hits:

R. Mendenhall Finest Moments Red Xfractor #/25
E. Doucet Blue Xfractor RC #/50
D. McFadden Finest Moments Green Ref #/199
F. Jones Finest Moments Blue Ref #/299

You would think for almost $500 on a direct 4 box case from Topps, that they would put something relatively big in there. Maybe I just got a bad 4 box case, but my buddy opened one too and his best card was a Henne Base Auto, so judge for yourself. If you're planning on opening any, open with caution, because the odds on the box make it very tough to hit anything worthwhile.

Thanks.

With 1-2 cases, its impossible to judge if the product is good or not.

My first 2 boxes of UD Black NBA [$250 each] had Laimbeer and Jason Smith, and then Jason Smith and a Bird/Magic auto/#5. I bought a case and my next box was another Laimbeer and a JJ Redick card. The rest of the case was similarly bad.

Variance happens, but I'm sorry your case was so bad.

Horribly bad seems to be the rule instead of the exception with most Topps releases these days.

Now seeing that Desean Jackson is a redemption auto, I'm kinda pissed that I traded for the Eagles in the group break. There goes my only shot at anything good!

Haha, looks like I bested you both

That sucks though that it is a redemption.

Hopefully our group break goes better than this. I have 4 teams riding on it

I bought a box today as well. I thought at $120 this would be a better product than the average topps, and I have been dissapointed. I hadn't seen any case scans before this, and I guess I should have just got another box of Absolute!

I did get a Kevin Smith and Jake Long Auto (redemption), but I don't like Topps. They make ugly cards, and then just throw a different color in the back ground 5 different times. I will never buy Topps again!

Default send them to topps

any rc auto you get out of finest. apparently there was an error in production. I pulled a Forte auto yesterday, its only supposed to be numbered to 1999 but 1999 is better than not numbered.


check out the list

The rookie autos were to be serial numbered, for whatever reason it didn't happen, and Topps will print the # on them if you want to send them in to the Topps office.

Don't send the auto's in!!! Don't do it!!! My friend owns a card shop here in cleveland and he sent in his forte auto to be numbered. Well, guess what... they numbered it on the top front left of the card with blue sharpie( very crooked as well ) and gave him a FREE pack of topps kickoff. When he showed it to me i thought he was kidding. What a joke. I wrote to them and told them i want NO numbering on my chris johnson auto. I'm sure they will do as they please though like they have been for years. I'm getting really sick and tired of collecting.
