I was thinking about busting a box but at 94.75 plus shipping, PC becomes too expensive. I'll wait for a price drop around $ 70 a box price tag then I'll bust a few.

If that's the case why does Knockout do so well?

I can't complain with about the product. I bought 3 boxes and 2 of the 3 had Anderson Silva/Chael Sonnen dual autos. So my opinion if pretty high of the product. I guess like any box it is all luck.

I don't know what I want to do yet? Someone talk me in or out of picking up a case. LCS by me has them in today at a really good price. I didn't want to ore order this since I wasn't much impressed last year. Is it worth the money? I re-sell all ufc breaks since its not anything I collect. Wish some breaks would show up today before 4.

Wow. I had no idea those were even in 2012 Finest. Do you have any scans?

The silva / sonnen were in 2011. Don't think they have a dual this year.

Nope the Duals this year are Bloodlines (from the same country) and the ones with Dana White and a fighter.

Die Hard MMA collectors will buy it looking for the Mouthguards i think it will do well. Wish i had the cash to buy a box but, i'll wait for it to drop a little.

I saw pics on twitter of the early breaks Topps sent out. Looks awesome i don't like the 3 parallels of Bloodlines but, i guess Topps loves doing that esp. with the Finest product. Saw the Nick Diaz and Ross Pearson Grill Gear pics. not sure if they were pulled or just prod. pics.

I haven't looked for a checklist for this release, but if Michael McDonald is in it - I would be interested in some of his cards.

I collect Machida, he is my favorite fighter at the moment. I've seen the card, it's great looking card.

What I do not like, why on earth these cards are not numbered? What the hell Topps? I really dig black ref /8 cards. I might go for a master set.

I bought my first ever case last year when this came out. Thought I did good but it turned into a pretty bad case. I agree with someone who posted earlier, maybe UFC has been too watered down by Topps. I want to get a box of this but $100 is too much. I love Knockout and did end up getting a four box case of that and did great so maybe I should just stick to that.

As a side note, I keep all UFC cards so when I say I did poorly on my case I mean that I could've gotten the same cards for a quarter of the price. For whatever reason Finest just did not stick like other releases. I hope the same isn't true for this year's release.

I think they got lazy with no serial #'s. The auto mats are 1:33 mini boxes. I calculate the case #s based on the Finest VIP Pass Dana White Autos #/50 which are 1:327 mini boxes 327X50 = 16,350 mini boxes / 16 mini boxes per case = 1,021.875 cases made.

A little over 1,000 cases - not a very large product run IMO. This stuff should be loaded.

As for the mats based on the same odds there would be @ 495 total Auto mat relics. And if there are 30 subjects / signers that equals only @ 17 per fighter. WHY IN THE WORLD ARE THESE NOT SERIAL #'D?!!

Frankp - I was on the fence about getting a case as well, here's how I broke down the resale value (before stuff started to hit ebay, so it was just a guess)

Sets x2 - $25 each (I got 2 plus a bunch of dupes)
Inserts/Parallels - $100 should hit that easily, sold 1 card for $50, have offers on a couple others, and will probably sell the white and blue ref's as lots.
Jumbo Mat Relics - $100 (probably not on these, as most are not #'d)

Depending on what you pay for a case, that leaves about $13-15/hit to make up on 16 autos and 16 Finest threads relics. You can check out my break under other sport breaks, if you want to see a breakdown of hits. I got a couple high end hits, and that's with no plates or auto relics. The 2 autos /8 really helped though.
