Variations

NOTES:

  • All Image Variations are Refractors.
  • Unlike similar Topps "gimmick" cards, the production code on the back of the Image Variation Refractors are the same as the base cards.
  • Each Image Variation Refractor is also available in the following parallels.
    • Red Refractor (serial-numbered to five)
    • SuperFractor (one-of-one)
  • Although not serial-numbered, we estimate the production of each Image Variation Refractor at around 150 copies.
