    1996-97 Finest Basketball Series 1 Factory Sealed Box. Offered is 1996-97 Topps Finest Basketball Series 1 factory sealed box. Within this box is 24 packs with 6 cards in each pack. Finest is headlined by the excellent 1996 rookie class that features Hall of Famers Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Steve Nash and Ray Allen. 1996-97 Topps Finest came in 2 series the first had card numbers 1 to 146 and features three levels (bronze, silver, gold) of short print cards. Each of those levels held different rates, bronze cards were considered common, silver were uncommon and fell 1 in 4 packs and gold were rare and fell 1 per box. From there the Refractors come into play and are available in bronze (1 in 12 packs), silver (every other box) and gold (1 per case) as well. While Finest didn't have many insert sets it did provide different themes for cards for Series 1 they were Apprentices, Gladiators, Maestros and Sterling. The final piece that collectors will see with this product is the clear film that was meant to protect the cards surface. That is also were the dilemma for collectors comes into play as to keep the clear film on or remove it. Factory sealed.
