I started this website a couple of years back with the intention of collecting and displaying refractor cards from the 1990s. I put the site on hold for a while due to health issues, but I always had the intention of coming back to this collection and work my way towards completing that goal.
The first time I saw a refractor in person, which was when 1993 Topps Finest debuted, I was hooked. At first, they were inserted at a rate of one per box, which is unheard of anymore. Later releases saw more than one per box, but the chase was still strong.
