Description

2002 Finest is a 110-card set released by Topps exclusive to Hobby outlets in the Summer of 2002. In a radical overhaul for the brand, the last ten cards in the base set make up an Autographed First Year Player subset -- the first time autographed cards were included in the base set. In addition, 2002 marked the debut of the "mini box" packaging Finest would be known for in future years. Each six-pack mini box would yield one Autographed First Year Player card.

Distribution

Three, six-pack mini boxes per box (MSRP: $36 mini box), five cards per pack. 12 boxes per case. Hobby only.

Parallels

All 110 base cards (including the Autographed First-Year Player cards) are available in the following Refractor parallels.

  • Refractor (serial-numbered to 499 copies)
  • X-Fractor (serial-numbered to 299 copies)
  • X-Fractor w/Protector (serial-numbered to 99 copies)

NOTE: For the "X-Fractor w/Protector" cards, Topps brought back the much maligned peel-away "Protector" that was standard on all Finest cards from 1995-1999.
