    Thoughts on 2014 Finest

    Hey everyone
    Lots of 2014 topps finest baseball has started to hit eBay

    Post your thoughts and any pickups here

    So far seems like a whole big mish mosh of previous finest sets.. Great eye appeal but rather confusing...

    I've seen many 96 finest redos
    97 finest redos
    And some sort or 99 ID Ionix looking base cards

    I don't know the checklist for this but in sure it's going to be insane

    Oh well

    I guess the Topps Representative that is supposed to witness the signings was either eating donuts or taking a #1 because there are smudged autos in this product. You'd think the rep would notice that during the signing and correct the situation.

    Oh that's right, unless it's a certain group of athletes that makes Topps O, I highly doubt the autos were witnessed.

    So far, product looks awesome with all the colors on the base cards.

    Retro inserts also super cool.

    As someone who has been that Topps witness for a few signings, I can tell you that our job is not to look at the autos or do any type of quality control. All we are expected to do is make sure the person on the card is the one signing it.

    What's the purpose of Topps Finest anymore? To me it's strange it's release right in proximity to Topps Chrome....

    From what came up in eBay searches:

    Some cool looking cards but tao many variations it is confusing, and nothing that I think will be particularly memorable.

    I don't know if this has been brought up, but there are no redemptions in this product!

    Love the design. The colored refractors are kind of confusing. Haven't held any in hand yet though.

    If the Stanton or Trout Supers show up, I'll win them

    Don't forget, they also have the 1994 design in there, as [MENTION=1720]cgilmo[/MENTION] pointed out to me last night.

    This product is for those who want a rookie auto of the 2014 class, but can't drop the money on a Bowman/Bowman Chrome type product.

    It will have more hits for your dollar, however the value and demand for those hits will be much less then their chrome counterpart.

    It has been said already, but IMO, this or another product needs to be scrapped. All it does is flood the market with cheap autos and devalue the rest of the better product.

    If I had my say, I agree that Platinum and Finest would be scrapped. Possibly Bowman or Bowman Chrome as well.

    I bought the Sandy Koufax auto from guru - and I'd want a Mark McGwire but besides that - i'm not interested in it at all.
