    Player Collectors: Topps Factory Set parallels (2013 Orange /230, 2011 Red /245, etc.)

    Do you have these cards yet for your guy(s)? I have the 2011 and 2012, but am kicking myself for not picking up the 2013 Orange when they were released. These cards can be unduly hard to find since so many factory sets go unopened, and I seem to always forget that.

    2011 /245 and 2012 /210 are below. (2013 is orange /230.)

    The factory set parallels are an absolute nightmare. I managed to find most of the 2011 Pirate team set and the Jack Wilson for my player collection on ebay for about $1/card with combined shipping. But the 2012 Orange and 2010 Red sets have been almost impossible to find from what I've seen. I think I have come across a few in $.50 boxes at shows, but they never pop up in my ebay searches.

    I picked one from 2013 of Alex Rios. Then about 4 or 5 months ago someone on ebay was selling 10 Rios from 2011. I remember how difficult they are so I bought all of them for $18 including shipping. It is just like the 2013 Topps camo they are '#ed to 99 but I've only seen 3 of the Rios on sale.

    First off, let me tell you that your Gomes collection is Freakin' Crazy!!!! You are a true Gomes collector. I, myself, am looking for Votto cards from those sets, and have found none. It's driving me crazy, as I see more and more cards come out that I can't get my hands on......

    Yup, I have my guy.



    I don't think I've seen a 2013 of Gomes listed.

    Did get this in this week though, 31/50.

    I've seen exactly one 2012 Orange Sizemore. I passed on the $5 BIN or whatever, and never saw another. It's one of my top wants. The same thing happened with the 2010 coppers, whichever year that was. I passed on the first I saw because it was priced too high, but had to wait a long time to find another. They became more plentiful in the last year or so, though. Maybe someone bought a block of sets and broke them to capitalize on selling singles.

    It's funny how they get listed. A couple sellers seem to sell the majority of the Gomes cards; TNTnorthNJ has something like 11 reds /245 of Gomes for sale, while arodrules3333 sold the majority of 2012 and 2013 oranges.

    [MENTION=2077]smapdi[/MENTION], good point on the coppers. Same thing happened with Matt Diaz, but it's four years later, and I still haven't been able to find one. And they're numbered to 399! Same with the camos, [MENTION=2915]spikes[/MENTION]. They dried up so quickly, glad I was able to get the 3rd one listed of Gomes. Won't make the same mistake this year...

    [MENTION=2995]mudflap02[/MENTION], sweet Boston Strong card, and nice numbering. That wasn't on eBay, was it? Managed to get mine a month or two ago on a $25 BIN, and haven't seen another since.

    [MENTION=11121]mmyers1978[/MENTION], thanks!

    Check Sportlots if you haven't yet. There was a Sean Burnett over there but I already have one. Since there is that one, I'm assuming there are more.

    These are tough finds!

    I saw TWO of the 2012 John McDonald on eBay, but I mistakenly thought I already had it. They got snatched up and then I realized what happened and how rare they are. Still upset since it's the only McDonald (non 1/1) card I don't have, AFAIK.
