1994 Topps Finest #361 Refractor


Card Review: 6.5  It doesn't show up well in the scan, but this is in fact a refractor.  You can see the difference best on the sleeve of his throwing arm.  I guess I never understood the whole Topps Finest thing.  To me, these seem more akin to the Topps Coins than a Topps Baseball Card.  They never had much appeal to me, even at the time, I remember them being pretty popular (and crazy expensive), but I never felt like I was missing out on anything by not buying any.

These '94 Finest Refractor's are far cheaper than their '93 counterparts, but I've found they're also harder to come by.  I see '93 Refractor's pop up on ebay on a regular basis, the fact I only have one copy is a result of the price they demand (1 refractor for $30, or 300 80's Topps base cards is an easy choice for me).  These '94, and 95's as well, rarely show up in the ebay search feed.
