Yep, I completed another Luis Torrens rainbow just in time to say that I completed TWO rainbows in one year.
It's really interesting (to me) how this all came together. Prior to this month I had four of the seven colors of the rainbow (the 1/1 on the left, the red, the refractor and the base). But then I was browsing eBay when I noticed that the VERY elusive green prism refractor had popped up.
For those of you who don't know the green refractors were retail only parallels. Making them quite difficult to find due to how they weren't easy pulls to begin with in addition to how it's unclear how many people actually bought the retail version of 2013 Prizm Draft.
Anyway I managed to win the auction for the green prism refractor. At the same time I noticed that the very rare gold refractor was also up on eBay, this time as a Buy It Now listing.
The price was fairly reasonable so I pounced on it. Now I had three of the BIG pieces (the 1/1, the /10 gold and retail refractors) out of the way, there was only one more parallel keeping me from completing the rainbow.
The blue refractor which had happened to be available on COMC for a reduced price. Naturally I swooped in and bought it (along with a few other cards). Earlier today it finally arrived.
And here I sit. Looking upon the SECOND Luis Torrens rainbow I've completed. And this time this is really complete as 2013 Panini Prizm Draft didn't release printing plates. It begins and ends with these seven cards. #Blessed
I'm still quite surprised that this managed to come together. On the same day (technically) no less. But then again, I live in the 21st century with the internet.
As always thanks for stopping by and take care :).
