PSA seems to get it wrong even more often than Beckett from what I've noticed. The Super Team NBA Finals is the "Bordered Refractor with logo" the picture I posted does have the refractor finish although it's hard to see. The base is the Super Team Division Champions and the Borderless is the Super Team Conference Champions.

Here are the links to those two sets...the set descriptions of these and the links I gave above do a pretty good job of explaining everything that I am not doing a good job explaining. Hopefully this clears things up.

By the way, I'm not sure what you mean by the OPG doesn't have all of the same information, it does. I think it has even more information based on the links I provided. Now what really should be corrected are the pictures of the OPG but that's an entirely new conversation.

Well if Beckett can't get the right description on their cards how are we supposed to get it right. They are charging people good money for grading and slabbing. They should get it right 99% of the time.

Also, I see nothing in either of those links that the cards are refractors. They should make that clear so there is less confusion.

One of the links I provided in my first post was for the NBA Finals Super Team Set in the following way....

"The following teams were eligible for the NBA Finals Super Team cards: Chicago and San Antonio. If you had one of those cards, you could redeem them for a set of Mystery Finest Bordered Refractor Cards - similar in design to the regular Bordered Refractors issued in 1996-97 Topps series two. The cards differ by having a "Super Team Champion" logo on the card front."

I understand the frustration with not having the descriptions correct but people make mistakes especially considering I'm sure they don't have the most experienced graders looking at the $50 inserts so there will be more mistakes there. Even if they are right 99.9% of the time there will still be a ton of errors out there. I'm frustrated right along there with you because I need the nba finals super team version and I already have the regular bordered refractor, if people out there would just understand I could get it for less Smile.

Well thanks for taking the time to explain it to me.
