anyone familiar with this set? i have two cards i recieved in a random box and went too look them up and noticed the finishes were different.. one is the magic johnson bv0.10 and has a reg finish.. i looked at the bill russell i got and it has a real glossy finish wuth a star print.. also the letters on the jersey seem to stand out quite a bit.. the only option i saw besides the reg card was the atomic refractor... is this that card? any help is appreciated

If the "star print" is shiny like Topps Finest then its the Finest version of the set. I have one and it has a star pattern imprinted over the card. That's just the regular Finest version though. They also made a refractor and atomic refractor version. Refractor is the rainbow type look of the card and the atomic is the rainbow type look but with more sparkle or whatever.

So I'm willing to bet its just the regular Finest parallel.
