2011 UFC Finest

2 mini boxes - 6 packs per mini box - 5 cards per pack
'3 Autos or Relics per mini box'

I received the following:

37 unique base cards and 1 duplicate

Check out this guys' hair!!

This premium issue is a highly reflective card with the background being silver - it seems to me that the photos are not quite as sharp as they have been in the past.... maybe it's the silver foil background? The reverse of the card has fighter stats and a synopsis of his fighting career. The 'chain' design is carried from the front to the reverse of the card.



8x all #ed to 888


3x #ed to 388

I really like the design in the xfractor background - good job Topps!

AND they are numbered on the reverse - thank you again~!!!!

UFC Finest - This premium issue should be very good for the individual fighter collector. One will find several parallels to chase - Finest Moments, fight used, refractor, xfractor, - of their favorite fighter. The set collector will need several mini boxes - probably at the minimum of 5 to get enough to make the set. However, with this many mini boxes, one will have more than enough trade bait to complete the set.

One of the autos is on the card - excellent and it looks great. I also like the large piece of the mat that I received.

The UFC Unlocked card might prove to be better than the Topps Diamond cards - one can win several different prizes - fighter chips, cards, memorabilia, and UFC Event tix - pretty cool.

Overall grade A- the photography was not as sharp as it could have been, but the inserts more than made up for that!

Go buy several mini boxes and send the Atomic Refractors to me - these are really great!!

Nice! Are any of the autos, of the Lidell mat for trade? I love the UFC stuff :)

The Lidell is sweet. About the only guy I've heard of from your break. Given I don't know much about UFC, though.

Looks like a fun set, thanks for the review Duane:)

Did you happen to get any cards of Jon "Bones" Jones in there?
