    Question Refractors

    Hello,

    I notice on Ebay that some of the graded baseball card superstar rookie refractors are

    different prices. In particular, the Orange and Purple refractors seem to be more pricey

    than normal refractors cost.


    Is that because they are more rare and if so how much more rare are they ?


    Thanks if there are any smarties on this forum that can answer this for me.

    -Cheers !

    I have found the cardboardconnection.com is a pretty good site to reference for any information like this for specific sets.
