What The Hell Is A Retrofractor?

In the 2002 Topps Super Teams set they introduced a new kind of "shiny" called the Retrofractor. The reverse side of the card is like a vintage or Heritage card but the front has a chrome-esque feel. It's not the same as a regular Chrome card but is still pretty nice. 

2002 Topps Super Teams #36 Andy Pafko Retrofractor 

Each Retrofractor is foil stamped numbered to the year that the "super team" won the World Series and so Pafko's Retrofractors were numbered to 1957 the year the Braves beat the Yankees in seven games. So far I have seven of the 1,957 copies available or 0.35% of the total supply.
