Parallels

All 110 base cards (including the ten Autographed Rookies) are available in the following Refractor parallels.

  • Refractor (un-numbered EXCEPT for the Autographed Rookies which are serial-numbered to 199 copies)
  • X-Fractor (serial-numbered to 99 copies)

Uncirculated Gold X-Fractors

In celebration of Finest's tenth anniversary, each sealed Hobby box contained, packed as a box topper, one Uncirculated Gold X-Fractor serial-numbered to 199 copies.

Inserts

1993 Finest Buybacks

To commemorate Finest's tenth anniversary, Topps bought back one 199-card 1993 Finest base set and randomly inserted it into 2003 Finest packs. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your view of buybacks), Topps did not mark or stamp any of the cards. You got, essentially, a 1993 Finest common.
