Grade the Break - 2018 Topps Finest Master Box

In between the Topps Series 2 release and the Stadium Club release date, I wanted to do something fun, quick, and cheap for everyone to break. I chose a master box of Topps Finest because the price dropped already since Ohtani went down. I have never opened Finest before, but it's a set that I always like to pick up singles from. I was really excited to open this product and see how sharp the cards looked. I saw pictures of them, but pics don't do these cards justice, they are beautiful. No variations to look for in Finest, but lots of color parallels and nice inserts. Cards 101-125 are base card Short Prints.


* Beautiful card design

* Top Rookies - Ohtani, Devers, Andujar, Mejia, Hays, Verdugo, and more. Frazier and Albies are SP

* Nice Inserts: Sitting Red, Cornerstones, Finest Careers, and Finest Firsts

* 2 Autos Promised - autos on these cards almost always look sharp

* Affordable - when broken up into a break


* Not enough packs/cards for the price

* The "glass" look of Finest, is easy to scratch and smudge (had a few cards with marks from the factory - see Clint Frazier below)

* Team distribution was skewed, some teams had nothing in these boxes

* Frazier and Albies are SP

* Value - hard to imagine these boxes ever fully paying off, as a personal break

Topps Finest treated us to fun and quick break, albeit maybe a little TOO quick. would have been nice to have
