Over 2 years ago I started out on a project at the time I didn't know I started. I acquired my first Corey Seager card from the 2013 Bowman Chrome set and with it I had card number 1 of 15 in the rainbow set. There is actually 16 for a "true" the rainbow but that other one is a 1 of 1 superfractor that I will never see as I know it was sold online to a Dodger fan. Taking that one out of the equation though this Orange parallel's addition to my collection completes the rainbow.
I have a few card projects going on and to be quite honest I do not nor didn't expect to finish them as they are too limited and you have to come across a project need at the right time to pick it up. Well this is the first one I have taken to completion and considering the print run on a few of these cards I can not believe this is the one I finished first. This Orange one alone has a print run of just 25. The last time I saw a similar copy it sold before I even had a chance to bid on it. With Corey's assent to stardom his cards are increasingly becoming harder to track down so when this came up on a BIN auction I promptly put stuff up for sale to cover the cost.
The card was on a BIN with a best offer option and I sent in my offer but noticed that there were 3 other watchers. This might have been my last good chance at this card and I didn't want it to slip through my hands. I literally emailed the seller at least 5x during the day to get his attention and to work out a deal. Thankfully when he finally did get back to me the card was still available and soon after we completed the deal and a week later the card arrived and I am beyond happy.
Obviously I want/need all the cards of the rainbow to be encased in BGS holders and this card is no different. This card looks to be a sure lock for a gold banner and will look great to my other 14 cards in the rainbow. I finally finished a project and probably the hardest one I was/am doing. Woo Hoo. Once this card comes back from BGS I will do a special post on all of the cards together.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
