Question Refractor or xfractor? - mweber012 - 10-08-2012 11:54 AM

I pulled this Darvish out of a blaster box about 2 weeks ago. It says refractor on the back, but I think it is a xfractor. I am unfamiliar with the Topps Chrome cards so I was hoping the community could help me determine what kind of card this is. The links are to my photobucket and the back and the front of the card.

It's an x-fractor. All the different types of refractors say 'refractor' only and don't specify exactly which type of refractor it is.

yeah the X-Fractors will always have that what I call Checkerboard design on them where as a regular refractor will just look rainbowy when you hold it in the light at just the right angle.
