    OT...Modern Collecting Lingo/Glossary of terms

    I realize most on here are pretty high end vintage collectors...BUT...I'm regularly seeing/hearing terms used on modern cards like "blasters," "refractors" blah blah blah!!!!! RAZ?

    What do these words mean? Yes...I'm too lazy to research it myself and thought stimulating conversation would be more fun.

    Can we use this thread as a glossary of terms used in modern collecting????

    Refractors are shiny parallels of base cards with limited production numbers. 1993 Topps Finest were the first. They were a huge hit at the time and have been popular ever since.

    Superfractors are 1/1s and can be quite expensive.

    “OMG JUST PULLED GAVIN LUX #300/99999999999999 I SEND PSA NOW GET 10 AND SELL 1.5k!!!!!!!!”

    That sums up all you need to know for modern. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk
