Free The Finest: Kevin Garnett Edition Round 1

Between 1995 and 1999, the cruel fiends at Topps locked each Finest card behind a stifling prison of plastic. It is my duty, along with all other sworn members of the "Free The Finest Society", to work tirelessly to rid the world of those dreaded words, "Peel and Remove Protective Coating."
