Tino Tuesday #59: 1996 Topps Chrome Refractor #48

I'm always bummed that Topps didn't put out a Traded set in 1996. It would have been Tino Martinez's first Topps card as a Yankee. Instead, I had to wait until 1997.

Anyhow, 1996 Topps Chrome included Martinez in the set, and I just picked up this Refractor on Listia for 110 credits. The lot also came with two more Refractors, which I'll show later.

From the scan, you would think that the card is textured a but bumpy, but it's smooth. The circles/dots are part of the design. These Refractors actually look a bit more like a modern X-fractor.
