4 Cases Reviewed – 2010 Topps Finest!

The very reasons why I like Topps Finest every year are the very reasons why I like it yet again this year:
A) great way to pick up tons of potential rookie autos via the letter patches
B) pulling multi-color refractors is always fun!
C) Base set is not that big so sorting is not that much of a headache!

With that being said, I went for 4 cases this year. Many people say I am nuts because I won’t turn a profit but I will re-iterate my 3 reasons above and rave yet again – this product is fun! .

Topps continues to baffle me with their allocation. I picked up 2 cases each from 2 different distributors and check out the following occurences:
-plenty of base refractors of course #d /499, however could not complete one set! Of course instead I got duplicates of several cards, just amazes me that I couldn’t complete the set in 4 cases….and I wasn’t even close to be honest
-gold refractors are #d to 50. Pulled 2 Ryan Howard gold refractors..no complaints as that’s a good pull! but wait it gets better. Red refractors are #d to 25. I pulled to John Lannan Red Refractors? What are the odds of that???!?
I will say that I am a big fan of the purple refractors. Something about metallic purple that looks nice! This year purple refractors are all 1/1s. I was lucky enough to pull a purple refractor of Manny Ramirez! Not sure what the odds are on pulling these but I will say that it was a sweet pull indeed!
My next big pull was a Madison Bumgarner red refractor auto #d /5. I was thinking that this might be a big pull but when you think about it, there are 9 letters in Bumgarner. When each of those are #d to 5 this might just be ehhh….who knows, still a nice pull!
The other quirk was pulling about 8 Tyler Colvin patches. With my luck he will get officially named to the roster the day after my auctions end on those patches…lol. The Cubs keep hinting that he might make the roster….hurry up, make the move. Other notables of course are a couple of Posey autos, a Jeter gold refractor, Prince Fielder! Dustin Pedroia, and Jeff Francour Finest Moment autos, the Francouer of which was a red refactor and #d / 25! All pictures of the hits are below and of course most items can be found in our ebay store here.
Play Ball Amrerica!

    My Nephew spelled out TRUE BLUE with the last 6 cards that you have posted. Was that by choice or just random
