User Rating:

Firmly entrenched as one of the top rookie card sets for hoops collectors, 1995-96 Topps Finest Basketball is led by Kevin Garnett and Michael Jordan.

While the rest of the base set is largely second-tier stars, the set also has plenty of inserts to keep collectors busy.

1995-96 Topps Finest Basketball Set Details

Issued in 24-pack Hobby boxes with six cards per pack, 1995-96 Topps Finest Basketball is divided into two series for a combined 251-card set. The first run has 140 cards while Series 2 is limited to 112 cards. As far as the base sets go, Series 1 is much stronger. Not only does it include the vast majority of the set's rookie cards, but it has more star power, as well. Still, with Michael Jordan in Series 2, that's all the star power you need.

Kevin Garnett is easily the most important rookie card in 1995-96 Topps Finest Basketball. Below him, other rookies include Jerry Stackhouse, Michael Finley and Rasheed Wallace—strong players at points in their careers, but not all-time greats. All of these players are in Series 1. In fact, the only rookie card in Series 2 is Sasha Danilovic.

As with all Topps Finest releases, Refractors lead the parallel chase. They fall two per box. However, the prized parallels omit nearly every rookie in the set, from card #111 to 140. This means there is no Kevin Garnett rookie card Refractor to chase.

In terms of the inserts, Mystery is a 44-card set that is split between both series. Inserted one per pack, they're more common than the base cards. The format switched between Series 1 and Series 2. First series parallels are Borderless and Borderless Refractors. The second half of the set, found in Series 2, takes a more traditional structure with Silver and Gold parallels going with Bronze inserts.

All 1995-96 Topps Finest Basketball cards come with a clear protective peel. The idea was that they would protect the surfaces, which were prone to scratching. Today, many cards still have the peel, even though it makes the card less attractive as the labels run diagonally throughout the card. Taking the peels off can be risky as it requires picking at the edges. They can be removed without damaging the card, but it is a risk many collectors aren't willing to take, especially with more valuable cards.
