Wrapper Rippers: ’93 UD SP vs. ’93 Topps Finest

1993 Topps Finest:

Introducing the hobby to the refractor back in 1993, Topps set the bar on premium cards after releasing its Finest product.  To this day, the 1993 Topps Finest refractors remain some of the most popular inserts to collect, especially if they are graded high.

1993 UD SP:

Upper Deck introduced the hobby to their SP brand of cards in 1993.  1993 Upper Deck SP baseball contains rookie cards of stars such as Derek Jeter, and Johnny Damon.  The Derek Jeter ’93 UD SP rookie is one of the most recognizable cards in the hobby today.  High graded versions can sell into the thousands.
