I like it when the pack wrappers are thin like this and easily ripped.
My review, I like the design of the cards with the crisp lines and the nice clean action photography. It is great getting 3 autographs in a box. They also have a good selection of players. I don't like that the cards are always curved. Also Topps cards has problems with silver on the edges getting chipped easily. My final gripe is the auto of Ramirez is not centered and goes into the black area. My final verdict is, I buy a box of Finest every year and really enjoy opening these packs. They look and feel like a high end card and I feel like I get my value. With the price being over $100 per box though, I won't ever pony up the cash to complete a set.
