RE: new and need questions answered
The "refractor" on the back is there on any type of refractor, I believe. Whether it be gold, red, blue, or whatever. Same goes for "xfractor" and "atomic."

Currently collect: NON-SERIAL NUMBERED autos, Topps, and Topps Chrome cards of players in Bengals uniforms.

RE: new and need questions answered
The co-signers is the Posluzsny, and if numbered to 50 should be the hologold red version.

If we trade, please respect me by shipping out BEFORE my end arrives!

Well I will try my best

1.Well the first step would be determining where you obtained the card if you pack pulled it. If you pack pulled it from a card shop or online store then its more than likely a regular card in the database. Retail are cards pulled from retail packs, which are at Walmart, Target and a few other stores like those. Most of the time the retail version is not foiled cards while the regular version has foil(Shiny verses a non glossed type of card)
Sometimes the color or border on the card can help to determine what the type of card it is as the organizer is very descriptive.

2.Refractors are relegated to products like Topps Chrome, Platinum and Finest. Most of the time Topps will designate it a refractor on the back under the card number, sometimes they will not and you just have to tell based on a shine compared to the normal cards lol(i'm sure theres better wording for that phrase)

3. This is the specific card you are looking for
