Someone please enlighten me. What is the difference in these three cards besides the serial numbers?

I bought this one mostly because it looked like it has very little chipping. It's #'ed to 97

This one is to 55

And this one to 25

The color and patch are all the same on every example of these cards that I have seen. So tell me what am I missing? I mean if there is no difference why would I pay more fore the lower serial #'s?

I think te foil around the swatch is a different color.

Ok the 55 has gold but the 25 and 97 are silver.

My guess is the 25 is "platinum". Or something. Prob looks more line a refractor then plain silver. Just a guess.

Yeah, I think #/25 would be platnium, and the foil will be rainbow-looking when you get it in the light.
