Description

2005 Finest is a 166-card set released by Topps in May, 2005. Cards #141-#156 make up an Autographed First-Year subset which is hand-numbered to either 970 or 375 copies. The final ten cards are of retired players.

In an effort to "add value" to the product, the number of Refractor parallels was greatly increased. Each six-pack mini box will yield four Refractors serial-numbered to 399 copies or less and one autograph. Each Hobby box has three mini boxes and an Alex Rodriguez "Finest Moments" insert serial-numbered to 190 copies packed as a box topper.

Each eight-box Hobby case guarantees either a one-of-one Refractor or Printing Plate, or an Alex Rodriguez autograph serial-numbered to thirteen copies.

Distribution

Three, six-pack mini boxes plus one A-Rod Moments box topper per box (MSRP: $40), five cards per pack. Eight boxes per case. Hobby only.
