I was looking through my McCovey binders and a big smile came across my face when I turned to a certain page. Putting this page of McCoveys together was a big project and took quite a bit of time (and more money than I probably want to admit) but in my mind it sure paid off. We use the term rainbow to signify a collection of all the parallels of a card and they are usually differentiated by the color of the border. When I look at this grouping of McCovey cards, I see all the colors and to me this is a true rainbow. Enjoy:
|Red Parallel 0081/1000|
|Green Parallel 352/500|
|Blue Parallel 159/250|
|Black Parallel 086/100|
|Gold Parallel 03/50|
|Green Parallel with GU Bat 058/100|
|Blue Parallel with GU Jersey 089/100|
|Gold Parallel with Autograph 09/10|
This is an interesting insert set, it is title Passing the Torch but they only feature Willie McCovey. There is also a 2 sided insert set featuring McCovey and Will Clark which makes more sense with the theme but regardless, I really enjoy this rainbow. I am one card away from the McCovey/Clark rainbow but I have only seen one pop up once and wasn't able to secure it. Maybe a good topic for another McCovey Monday.
Do you have a favorite rainbow in your collection?
