2014 Topps Finest Baseball CardsBrand: Topps Finest
You can't accuse 2014 Topps Finest Baseball of not being colorful. Featuring one of the wilder designs in recent years. Hobby boxes are highlighted by a pair of on-card autographs and the familiar mix of Refractors that add even more color to the product.
The 2014 Topps Finest Baseball base set has 100 cards. It's not huge but it has a mix of both veterans and rookies. In total, there are more than ten types of Refractors. Unnumbered parallels include basic Refractors and X-Fractors. Color-based Refractors come in Green (#/199), Blue (#/125), Black (#/99), Gold (#/50), Red (#/25) and Magenta (#/15). The rarest of them all are Atomic Refractors (#/5) and SuperFractors (1/1). Collectors can also find randomly inserted hot boxes where every base card is replaced with an Orange Refractor.
Autographs combine to fall two per master box. The majority fall under two categories, both of which have on-card signatures, Rookie Autographs and new Finest Greats Autographs. Rookies are self-explanatory, focusing on top young players. Finest Greats has an all-retired player checklist.
Both Rookie and Finest Greats Autographs have an expansive parallel rainbow as well: X-Fractors (#/149), Blue Refractors (#/125), Black Refractors (#/99), Gold Refractors (#/50), Red Refractors (#/25), Atomic Refractors (#/5), Printing Platers and Superfractors (1/1).
Autographed Rookie Redemptions return. Players will be announced after the set is announced, adding some mystery to the cards. Redeemed cards will be numbered to 100.
Most of the basic inserts in 2014 Topps Finest Baseball are based on past designs. 1994 Finest goes back 20 years to the brand's sophomore release and with current stars. These have Refractor (#/25) and Superfractor (1/1) parallels.
Topps Sterling takes a similar approach with a 1996 subset. Moving ahead to 1997 are the Competitiors (#/50) and Finest Warriors Die-Cut inserts. Parallels for all three of these inserts include Gold Refractors (#/25), Red Refractors (#/10) and Superfractors (1/1). Finest Warriors, which focuses on rookies, and Competitors also have autographed versions that are numbered to 15 or less.
The 2014 Topps Finest Baseball insert lineup rounds out with the new Finest Vintage. These look at legends from every decade dating back to the 1950s. Refractor versions are done in Gold (#/25), Red (#/10), Superfractors (1/1) and Autographs (#/15 or less).
