Doesn't look like Diffractor.
I hate misleading auction titles like that. I was looking for a rookie card of someone yesterday. Some seller lists an auction with a 2nd year card as a "rookie". And this was before the RC guidelines were changed.
Yeah, I hate that too. I see a lot of 1992 Jim Thome cards on ebay listed as his RC. And sadly a lot of buyers fall for it. But I think a small percentage of sellers don't have a clue when listing their cards.
I contacted seller of the Bernie Williams who claimed it as Diffractor. He told me he would change listing

i have a biggio pattern 17 if someone needs it pm me.
There was another pattern that I owned that popped up on ebay about 5-10 years ago. But that single instance was the only dup I've seen. This is the second. I haven't seen or heard of a dup of either mondesi or clemens.
