2015 Finest Generations Baseball Cards

2015 Finest Generations baseball cards pose a fun but somewhat ambitious project to complete. The difficulty is chalked up to the existence of the Superfractor. Finest, dating back to its inaugural year in 1993, has always been a popular installment. 2015 was the first year Frank Thomas made an appearance in a Finest release since his playing years. For 2015 Finest Baseball, he’s featured on three different cards each with a variety of parallels. I was immediately more attracted to the Generations card because it didn’t have an autograph on it. Autographs are fine but they tend to influence artificial demand whereby driving up final price. I love ’em but often times prefer to go after the stuff that doesn’t feature autographs. This is especially the case with post-career stuff. I may change; who knows. Depending on the player collected, some cards from the Generations run are found with autographs.

Anyway, the 50-card Generations set is an interesting one in that it’s simple in a variety of ways. The background design seems a bit busy but overall, the player photo is the focal point on these cards. For Frank Thomas as well as many other players in the set, there are only three parallels over the base card, but each holds a minimal print run. A full run is shown and here’s what it covers:

  • Base: This version features a flat chrome finish.
  • Refractor: This version features a refractor finish with a stated print run of 25. These were inserted at a rate of 1:37 Mini Boxes.
  • Red Refractor: This version features a red refractor finish with a stated print run of 5. These were inserted at a rate of 1:183 Mini Boxes.
  • Superfractor: This version features a superfractor finish with a stated print run of 1. These were inserted at a rate of 1:907 Mini Boxes.

If you’re looking for a bit of a challenge that, depending on the player, can be relatively costly, grab a box of 2015 Finest Baseball. It’s an interesting product with a variety of inserts and signed cards.
