1993 Topps Finest Refractors checklist, values & prices.
Topps went all in in 1993 with their most premium baseball card set to date,
the famous 1993 Topps Finest set with RARE
parallel issue REFRACTORS
With only 199 cards, 7 per team, the 'Finest'
set only had room for
Rare REFRACTORS were randomly placed in some packs.
REFRACTORS looked exactly like regular cards unless you knew where
AND how to look. Tilting a REFRACTOR in sunshine released a rainbow of
colors, "refracting light" Topps scientists liked to say.
Current info is only 241 REFRACTORS were issued of each card making
this parallel issue one of the scarcest. Collecting a complete set is made
even more difficult by the hoarding of certain cards by collectors AND even
major league baseball players !

1971, Kellogg's second and by far scarcest and most valuable set,
contained 75 different players on 2 ¼” by 3 ½” cards.
The cards were plastic coated giving them a 3-D look !!!
The plastic coating also made high grade cards nearly impossible find.
Over time and the elements, most cards would curl making light and heavy
cracks very common.
As opposed to Kellogg's other issues which were available from the company as complete sets,
1971 Kellogg's cards were ONLY available one in each specially marked box of Kellogg's cereal.
The only way to complete your 1971 Kellogg's set was to pester mom to buy, buy, buy more boxes of cereal.
In addition to the 75 different players, numerous scarcer variations exist
with minor differences in the stats on back. In addition, all 75 cards and
some variations are found with 2 different forms of copyright on the back:
XOGRAPH ( 80 total cards)
@1970 XOGRAPH (121 total cards)
The numbers above may not be 100% accurate.
The "toughest" cards appear to be:

# 28 Wright (Angles Crest Logo)
# 54 Johnson (Angles Crest Logo)
# 64 Fregosi (Angles Crest Logo)
# 70 Osteen (No Number on back)

Baseball card collecting terms (part S-Z)
Series are groups of cards in an issue released together.
Example: Series #1 (cards #1-100) are released in April;
Series #2 (#101-200) released in July; and so on. This allowed
kids to easier complete sets. A side-effect was the creation of scarce
Short Print (SP) is a card printed in lesser quantity than other cards
in the set. Recent short prints are often serially-numbered.
Team Set is a group of all the cards of players for a certain team.
Test Issue is a small printing by a card company to see if
products are of interest to collectors. Some of Topps neatest items
are "Test Issues" like 1956 Topps Pins & 1974 Topps Puzzles.
Tobacco Card is typically from the early 1900's and were issued with
tobacco products, the most famous of which is the T-206 Honus Wagner card.
Traded/Update Set is a set issued after the original issue primarily featuring rookies
or players who were traded since the original issue came out.
Trimmed Card is a card reduced in size mostly to hide
damaged edges or corners. Trimmed cards have very little value compared
to the un-trimmed version. In some cases such as the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle,
even trimmed cards can go for thousands. The most famous 'trimmed' card
is the T206 Honus Wagner purchased by Wayne Gretzky. The card was actually
too large before it was trimmed down to size.
Unauthorized Issue is a card release which is not licensed by the
league, player's association or player.
Variation is a card printed by the manufacturer that differs
in some way from the normal card.
Wax Pack is a generic term for a pack of cards.
The "wax" came from a time when packs were sealed in wax paper wrappers.
Today it is still used for packs even though they no longer use wax paper.
