Description

2016 Finest is a 110-card set released May 18th. Each Hobby Master box will yield two autographs.

Changes in Hobby Distribution

On April 22nd, Topps announced drastic changes in 2016 Finest's distribution. Those Hobby dealers who pre-ordered Finest directly from Topps would have their orders honored. (Finest was solicited to Hobby dealers from November 25th, 2015 to January 13th, 2016 at a direct price of around $600 for an eight-box case.) However, reportedly due to low sales, Topps would not make Finest available to Hobby distributors or to online retailers and instead would sell it directly on the Topps.com website for $99.99 a box or $799.89 for an eight-box case.

Distribution

Two, six-pack miniboxes per box, five cards per pack ($99.99 at Topps.com). Eight boxes per case ($799.89 at Topps.com).
