The Seager rainbow pursuit train keeps on chugging.
With only 35 copies of this Magenta (lets be real, pink) refractor I know there would only be so many chances to acquire my own copy. Not as limited as the black one (15) but not as plentiful as blue, green et al.
Though I would love (prefer) to have all the colors be in gem mint form and I could try to get a raw copy and submit it myself and hope for that 9.5 but if there is a mint copy of any of these low numbered parallels that could be had on a deal then I am going to go that route instead. Mint is better than not mint though not as good as gem mint. = )
This card books for $100 in raw form. Obviously if it was in gem mint grade then it would sell for more than that and there happens to be one such copy on eBay but after a week of trying to negotiate with the seller on a price I backed away as he was not willing to move much from his original asking price. Was planning to just go the ungraded route but this copy popped up on the bay with a more reasonable price (obviously considering it is a lower grade) and it also had a best offer option. I decided to send an offer at more than 50% off his asking price and what seems to be the norm nowadays there was no counter as he accepted the offer. Guess he just wanted to move it.
Another notch off the rainbow checklist.
