It ain't over til it's over

It's been a year and a half since I've been able to add another card to the 2013 Topps Votto Rainbow. Patience definitely pays. I was surprised last week to see this black printing plate pop up on eBay. I already have printing plates for Opening Day, Chrome and Topps Mini but I had yet to find a printing plate for the base Topps. On top of that the other three printing plates I had were for different colors: yellow, cyan and magenta. Luckily I was able to come out as the high bidder and I'm now anxiously awaiting for it's arrival in the mail. With this pick up I'm down to just needing five more cards for my rainbow: 2013 Topps Factory Orange numbered to 230, 2013 Topps Wrapper Redemption Silver Slate numbered to 10, 2013 Topps Opening Day Toy's R Us Purple parallel, 2013 Topps Chrome Camo Refractor numbered to 15 and 2013 Topps Chrome Pink Refractor numbered to 5.

  1. Nice! I have nowhere near the required patience (or budget) to build a rainbow, so I admire the collectors who do.

    1. Thanks Nick. I was curious as to when exactly I started chasing this rainbow...and it's been 5 years! Crazy that I'm still able to track down a card every now and then. It's been a fun project.

  2. Very cool. I'm kinda building a few Kurt Suzuki rainbows... but these days I won't pay more than a few bucks for his singles... so I doubt I'll ever finish them. Best of luck on finding the Final Five for your rainbow!

    1. Thanks Fuji! Hopefully I'll find the last few cards I need within the decade :)
