2011 Topps Finest N F L

2 Mini boxes -6 packs per box - 5 cards per pack
'Each mini box contains - Sequentially numbered auto'd jumbo relic or Auto'd Rookie patch Card.'

I received the following:

45 base cards - no dupes

Finest is a top quality premium product. The highly reflective surface makes scanning difficult. The design this year is different than the past. The banners on the front are smaller than the past issues. The reverse is a bit hard to read with the dotted pattern as a background. Vets have career summary stats and the rookies have their college stats - both have a Finest 2010 Moment.

Inserts

5 Refractors // 2 XFractors

Refractors - Austin, Ryan, Johnson, Green, Jackson
XFractor - Ryan, McCoy

********************

Finest Football - excellent issue for the player collector and the rookie collector. The relic collector and auto collector might want to chase them on the 'bay. One should be able to collate a set with 4 master boxes (8 mini boxes) - or at least have enough for trading to complete the set.

The numbering of the cards on the front is hard to see - especially on the xfractors - I nearly missed it. They should be numbered on the reverse.

Both autos I received are sticker autos - one of the 2 was designed specifically for the sticker.

Die cuts - my favorite insert - they look excellent.

Overall grade A- I would have liked to receive more inserts and have them numbered.

Go buy several master boxes and send the die cuts to me!!

Be advised that those refractors have different 'levels" too- Some are serial numbered which makes them easy to discern but others seem to go by the color of the background dots?
