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

    found a scan from the guy who pulled it






    dont have scans of anything else but have whole auto rainbow and whole non auto rainbow including white 1/1 of non auto as well.
    have the red ref for 08 topps finest base as well and i think that is it form that run.
    love finest.

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!
    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...
    The Topps Vault seems to sell ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that is laying around? Proofs, negatives, blank backs, contracts, art work, etc....

    Who is to say these sets won't be laying around years from now and sold off as individual cards or sets? I don't think it is a huge leap to think they would sell these in the future? I think it is more naive to think the sets not redeemed were either not produced or destroyed.

    Are you some kind of expert on Topps Vault listings? What guidelines do they have for what they list, if you can answer that question, I would be more than happy to side with you.

    so since last year have any of the original two sets sold (8 & 13/25) have any of the singles been re-sold besides the Thomas? if so did they go higher than originally? Kinda curious to see if people after the original flury thought the same thing we all did when they first hit

    I had both David Wrights (base and Finest Moments, #8 I think). I was collecting him too at the time. I got them for 75 each, and I believe I re-sold them for about 45-50 each. I probably could have gotten more if I held out longer, but i was just selling off all my Wright stuff at the time.

    I think I bought the Thomas for cheaper. I think I paid around $35 or below because thats usually my spending cap on cards.

    I'm not sure which set (#8 or 13) but one of them a guy bought the entire set for like $400 on another online auction site. He was breaking up the lot on ebay and that is who I originally made the thread about for the PC guys.

    That guy probably got 5x what he paid...

    Only 2 listed on eBay right now, but I still can't believe the $$ paid for some of these.

    I knew I had the Johan Santana one somewhere, mine is #8/25. I might keep a eye out for #13/25.

    Well the entire set of #7/25 made it to COMC.

    https://www.comc.com/Cards/Baseball,...nest,ot,p1,i50

    So those that mean that they're only 3 sets redeemed? Player collectors, go get your guy as soon as possible before they're sold out. Prices are reasonable.
