When you're a movie franchise that's had trading cards for multiple decades, it's safe to expect a little experimentation. 1996 Topps Star Wars Finest took the popular chromium brand to a galaxy far, far away. Although it appears the higher price tag for the time may have scared many collectors off when it first came out, it doesn't stop the art-based set from being one of the most attractive Star Wars releases Topps has done.

What would a Finest set be without Refractors? These rainbow-finish parallels cover the entire base set, landing 1:12 packs. In the years since the release, these have remained especially popular with collectors looking to build a set. Besides the rainbow background on the front, Refractors can also be identified by the back of the card. Regular base cards have a silver illustration on the back. Refractors are gold.
