HI
got the email from Topps that they were going to sell Finest directly to customers. So after clearing out some stuff on ebay, I bought one at $99.99, with the free shipping. Box finally arrived yesterday.
So, busted the first mini box...no superfractor or even orange #/25. But, after watching a guy bust 3 full boxes at the LCS and a case break on youtube, can't complain...lmk what you think. Thanks Bob

Nice for your 1st mini box. Open up the other one!
I did a couple boxes and did quite well. Then I did some trading toward a set and just need # 25 and 58 if you'd like to do a trade or sale.

On a side note: In a mini box that I opened that had a Seager Refractor card, In also hit a Green refractor Seager and a Mattingly Auto. Never did get a Seager base.

Hope yours gets the same results!

Pack 3
70 Brandon Phillips Reds
71 Maikel Franco Phillies
5 Evan Longoria Rays
Franchise Finest Matt Carpenter Cardinals
Base Auto Starling Marte Pirates hear that name somewhere

Pack 4
19 Joc Peterson Dodgers
93 Christian Yelich Marlins
85 David Price Red Sox
61 Jason DeGroom Mets
99 John Lester Cubs Orange 20/25

Pretty awful box...only 1 number card!
All available for sale.

Some mini boxes are great and some are not to good. It sucks that you got the same auto in each mini.
4 numbered cards in a master box is ok. You just got the wrong ones. /25 is pretty cool!

Kind of made up for the Finest almost.

Big Hurt auto 16/40
