I planted several Tomato varieties (Super Beefsteak,Heatwave, Early Girl,Fourth of July, Big Boy, Roma and Lemon Boy). All seem to be doing well except the Super Beefsteak which are deformed (wrinkled on the outside and cordy on the inside). Is this just the way Super Beefsteaks are or is there a way to get them to look like the ones on the package?

Super beefsteaks are not normally like that, no. I would suspect a pollination problem or possibly uneven moisture levels. Since your other tomatoes are fine I would look to pollination -- for example, rain or wind could have interfered with it.
