    Help on finding info on this set, 2008 Finest Gold X-Fractor

    I need help on finding any information on the 2008 Finest Gold X-Fractors. The person I bought the Frank Thomas card from said that these cards were issued in some sort of redemption program and that only 2 full sets where released. Is that true? They are numbered out of 25, mine being 13/25. Also if it is true, what were the requirements of winning the set?

    Actually, I did not read all 12 pages before I posted the link, and it didn't really answer your question as to HOW they were obtained. I would be interested, too. Too bad we can't open the old Ebay (or Huggins) links...
    Looks like there may only be 4 or 5 sets, though!

    Really nice looking set. I believe redemptions for complete sets were inserted into packs but very few of them surfaced. I was able to buy this one for my run of Verlanders from that set-

    I've only seen 2 sets while looking for Andruw. I have one and andruwhrjones has the others...one of which is #13/25.


    I believe there were redemption cards inserted that would net you a complete set of the x-factors. Not sure how many were claimed but as of now I think only 2 sets have been broken.

    I have #8/25 for Andruw Jones. I have only seen 2 sets as well, #8 and #13. They were redemptions for full sets. Not sure when the redemption expires, but my guess is all 25 sets were produced and will make their way to the Topps Vault at some point. I have a hard time believing they were not produced or were/will be destroyed when the redemption runs out. Either way, still a tough card to find, congrats!

    I used to have the Zimm rainbow before I sold off all my Finest, minus the 1/1s. I have also only found the #8 and #13. Can't remember which one I had though. They were redemptions for complete sets. And a whole set was sold off individually on ebay last year. A lot of collectors on here were contacting the seller directly and grabbing up their players.

    Yeah me too, it's a great set. Unfortunately I have never seen the 1/1 of Verlander from this set so my rainbow remains incomplete for now.

    Can you name a single card released via Topps Vault that would lead you to really believe what you've said here? I can't...

    They were most likely all produced, but also likely is that they send out redemptions in random order, like serial numbered cards that get packed out. Like the 2006 Topps Blue Border set, I think only 1 was redeemed, but it was #7.

    BTW, I have a Sizemore gold X and it's #8/25 as well.
