The second half of my box break from last week was a box of 2013 UFC Finest. I am a huge UFC fan so when I do have the cash for a box or two I prefer picking up UFC products and UFC Finest is one of my favorite releases.
Each 2013 UFC Finest master boxes includes two mini boxes with 6 packs each (12 packs total). There are 6 hits, 4 inserts and 12 parallels. I pulled a nice variety of cards, no duplicates (which was nice).
The base cards are clean, most show action shots with a couple of post-win shots.
I pulled 7 Refractors (Not numbered) which have a crackled holographic look. (Mark Hunt, Donald Cerrone, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Joseph Benavidez, Daniel Sarafian, Anthony Njokuani and Ian McCall)
I pulled 3 Blue Refractors (#/188) including my favorite fighter Ryan Bader. (Brad Pickett, Ryan Bader and Vitor Belfort)I pulled 2 Gold Refractors (#/88). (Urijah Faber and John Dodson)
I pulled 4 inserts, two Finest Moments and two Valor inserts
With the Finest I got Jon Jones and a Blue Refractor Cain Velasquez (#/188).
With the Valor inserts I pulled a base Valor Frankie Edgar (Not the Valor 1/1 parallel version) and a Heart Ian McCall (#/88).

Two Jumbo Finest Threads Fighter Relics; a base Chan Sung Jung shirt relic and a Blue Refractor (#/188) Rashad Evans shirt relic
Two Jumbo Mat Relics; a base Quinton Jackson mat relic and a Gold Refractor (#/88) Benson Henderson (my second favorite fighter) mat relic.
This was a great box break, I got nice cards of my two favorite fighters, a Blue Refractor Ryan Bader base card and a Gold Refractor Benson Henderson mat relic. This was a nice change from the disappointing 2010 Triple Threads Football box. Each year Topps does a wonderful job with the UFC line and Finest is among my favorite.
