2011 Topps Finest Baseball
Although the Finest brand is one of the hobby's most celebrated, it has become somewhat lost in the shuffle in recent years. However, it looks as though a little tinkering with the format might bring it back to prominence. Besides the traditional Skittles mix of colorful refractors, the focus for the hobby-exclusive 2011 Topps Finest Baseball is on-card autographed rookie cards. The base set checklist boasts 19 rookie signers, all sticker-free. It also appears that the surprise redemption cards from year's past are gone. This renewed focus freshens the line up while sticking true to its roots.
