July Refractor Report

If you read this blog at all the last 7 months, you know I'm collecting refractors this year.  Any refractors!!  The goal is 1000 for the year.  This is my monthly report.

Here is the monthly progress report for July!

As of July 31st, I have the following:
545 - Baseball Refractors
25 - Football Refractors
52 - Basketball Refractors

622 total Refractors!  That's 61 added over the last month.  Assessment:  Much better that the last few months, but I still need to pick it up!

This month I have verified that the refractors from the following sets are not marked with a 'refractor' label anywhere on the card:

1993 Finest 
1994 Finest
2007 Topps Heritage Chrome
2011 Topps Chrome

I'm looking for any other sets with no label on the refractors.  If you know any, let me know!  Fact-check?!?!

More math...

I have 62.2% of my goal of 1000 Refractors.
I have been accumulating refractors at a pace of  2.92/day (down from 3.08/day for the 1st 6 months of the year).
I am on pace for 1068 refractors.

On pace still!  But barely.

Big thanks this month to Mark from Stats on the Back who sent me 13 fractors this month and Kirk from Eutaw Street Cardboard from whom I purchased 26 fractors in his 'Selling for the National' project.  Thanks guys!!

As always, let me know if you have refractors to trade!


  1. Hey Diamond King! I am down for a trade if your interested. I have some refractors and other goods to send your way. Email me if your interested.

  2. I'll have some for you soon! I just gotta come up with some postage money.
