Description

1994 Finest Baseball is a 440-card set released in two series of 220 cards each. Each series includes 40 special design Finest cards: 20 top 1993 rookies (1-20), 20 top 1994 rookies (421-440) and 40 top veterans (201-240). It's believed that these subset cards are in slightly shorter supply than the basic issue cards, but the manufacturer has never confirmed this. Some series 2 packs contained either one or two series 1 cards.

Production of 1994 Finest was greatly increased over the previous year's set. The only notable Rookie Card is Chan Ho Park.

Distribution

24 packs per box, seven cards per pack.
