Default 2012 finest

Leaning towards ordering a case just wondering on others thought or feelings on the product.

I heard last year's wasn't so hot, although I never busted any. myself and a friend have done about 5 cases of MoT, and he just finished his 3 case of KO today, so I'm assuming with no other releases around there...we will at least do a case or 2 or a few :-)

Last years was an absolute turd. The fastest way to lose money since buying Panini products. Ive done well with Knockout cases both years but Finest was brutal in 2011.

These are new additions and surely cannot hurt. There is no doubt they needed to do something new because last years dropped like a rock and was insanely tough to pull anything decent.

Idt diaz will ever sign any autos. Thats just his m.o. All those overpriced ko redemptions will be usless .....overeem is over priced so sell now. When this product releases he will have already lost to J.D.S. an his autos wont be worth crap. So if ur looking only for those 2.

Like the others said last years Finest was terrible. I will be staying away this year. Did a few cases of 2011 and was not impressed.

I'm with MMA. Value wise it might not have been the best for resale, but as far as COLLECTING goes it might be my favorite UFC release so far.

I hated Finest for 2 reasons. I just do not like the look of the metallic cards and I also busted 4 or 5 cases and lost a ton. Even so I still did not like the card design. The new series will have 50 Dana White autos which is 1 entry to win a VIP trip. I have not seen anything regarding any other event ticket cards.

And the problem with every Topps product is REDEMPTIONS! How come I still have 2 JDS full contact autos from 2010 knockout pending forever yet he has live autos in Moment of Truth and in this series knockout. WTF??!!! FILL YOUR DAMN REDEMPTIONS TOPPS!

If anyone is looking for Finest cards hit me up. I have a ton of it left looking to sell not trade. I have it all gears, autos, mat cards, stars, up and comers, inserts, serial #'d etc. LMK what you are looking for.

Actually I did make a profit. It still sucked. Obviously I'm not the only one who thinks so and I think current case prices reflect that.

I loved the UFC Finest last year... the rainbows were fun to chase, and the Gold Refractor and Octafractor autos are some of the nicest cards I've seen, especially with their on card autos.

Usually if a Topps product sucks one year then not many orders get placed for it the next year so Topps short prints it and it becomes huge. Id gamble on it this year because of that but with Topps you never know. I think it will be very SP'd and for that fact alone will become very hot

I got my tax refund and other $ coming in and have never busted a case plus its decently priced with pre sell. Was wondering if anybody would want to break with me? Box hit draft style possibley. But I would need to get a web cam to do it as well.

Didn't like last years either.. Only bought the singles i needed for cheap online.. I busted a couple boxes but they were crappy.. Gave the base cards to my kids because they like "shiny" cards (my son's a big pokemon fan) and like watching the fights too lol

They promoted last year's being with 2 auto relics per box, then replaced them with 2 extra relics before it was released. That lead to a lot of canceled presales. Been selling boxes on my website for 2012 and they've sold fairly well, so hopefully it will be better this year, as far as resell value goes.

MMA products have plateaued. There isn't as much star power anymore and even current champions have already had several autos. I'm staying away.
