While most are in all the various pack types and configurations, there are some exclusives. Pink Refractors are only in retail cello packs while Sepia Refractors are four per blaster box. X-fractors return as Mega Box exclusives. To get Wave Refractors, you have to look to hobby and hobby jumbo.

With the 2020 Topps Chrome Baseball design going largely borderless, some of the colors can be somewhat subtle. The most obvious spot to find the color is in the stripe running up the side that holds the nameplate.

Rarity varies for the 2020 Topps Chrome Baseball Refractors. The majority of types are serial numbered, though. For those that are, which are generally the more common, specific print runs are not known.

Here’s a full breakdown of all the 2020 Topps Chrome Baseball Refractors including a Luis Robert-heavy image gallery and pack odds for the various configurations so you know what packs they’re found in and how often.

    I just pulled a Trout auto ’85 throwback from a hobby jumbo, #d 4/20… What’s that? 🤔

    I read an article of yours on Bowman Sterling 2014 number 17 Mookie Betts rookie cards. You stated that a Prospect card or base card was as difficult to find as a panini 2014 Prospect card. By that do you mean that the cards are pretty much the same value if they are both PSA gem mint tens. Would appreciate any information and thank you. I really enjoy your articles.

      @david – I’m not sure exactly which two cards you’re comparing. “Difficult to find” and “more valuable” are totally different things, though. Rarity is certainly a factor in pricing, but it’s not the only thing.
