View Full Version : Question on Topps Finest Redemption

08-18-2006, 10:01 PM
I've bought a pack of 05-06 topps finest for the first time and pulled a draft #2 redemption card. I was wondering first of all, who is the official second pick this year: Tyrus Thomas or Lamarcus Aldridge? Second of all, as I don't have experience with redemption cards...what exactly am I getting back? (for example, is it numbered?) Is it worth even the postage money? Thanks in advance for the help.

What color is it?
And it is of LeMarcus Aldridge(you will be getting his XRC which is his first offical rookie) who is definetly worth the postage.

I would imagine that the official #2 draft pick is the guy announced as the #2 draft pick when David Stern went to the microphone during the draft.

For the redemption card, is the word "refractor", "xfractor" or "superfractor" printed somewhere on the card? What color is the card?

The redemption card is blue, but it does not seem to have anything like refractor written on it...so I assume it's probably a base rc. I was wondering what is the standard/approximate bv for a rookie like this? Anyways, really appreciate the help :)

Its just the base XRC still worth the postage money

Probably have a BV of around $10 at a guess

Just one more question, I was wondering if this redemption card is applicable for citiziens living outside of the US, for example, Canada? Has anyone had this experience before? If yes, do you simply put the name of your province under where "state" is? Thanks again for everyone's help.
