    My attempt at a rainbow, Finest style

    I've never successfully built a rainbow. I failed at the 2010 BC Topps 100 Stanton. I sold the Super then finally bought the gold, then realized I'd sold the Super so I sold the gold, then rebought the Super and still haven't found another gold. My attempt at the 2013 Topps Chrome Stanton rainbow also failed, seeing as how I still need everything under /100. I damn near bought the complete BC rainbow of some Marlins prospect (Miles Williams I think), but that's kind of a copout.

    This time I'm gonna actually finish one.


    I made a nice offer on the Atomic /5, and I think everything else is /25 or higher. Should be able to finish it off for $50 or so.

    If you've pulled one, let me know. I'll buy it.

    Ha, he sent me a Stanton cause I might do that rainbow if the Super shows up. He included the Marisnick before I even started this project.

    One more. Blue /125

    Even with all the 'colors' together in this thread, I STILL cannot tell how these 2014 Finest cards differ color-wise, other than the serial # and atomic/super patterns. Help me out, where does Base/Blue/etc differ on the card?

    I'm not sure. I like the design of the card and the photo, plus I've always wanted a Marlins auto'd Super. I refuse to pay the idiotic prices of BC prospects. I know he got traded, but oh well. Every Marlins card I own pictures the player in a fish uniform.

    bigunit, I thought they all looked identical until I bought a box of Finest. The difference is more subtle than other chrome products, but you can definitely tell the difference in hand. They don't scan well at all.


    ...I kinda started another rainbow tonight. This was the one card I wanted from the entire product. I already bought an Atomic the first day of release, and 200lb is sending me the Red /25. Everything else is /50 or higher. I'll surf eBay and find some cheap BIN's and finish it ASAP.


    I'm gonna end up starting and finishing two rainbows in about 36 hours. That's got to be some sort of record

    That Stanton is sweet!

    ...Yeah, I've actually picked up some Marisnick stuff. He seems like a decent enough player and his stuff is dirt cheap (think I've spent maybe $15 total). I'm really digging the x-fractor auto you have. Might have to pick one up sometime.

    I have a $2 bid on an active auction. If I win, I'll have two and send you the extra one

    Dang, and here you were wondering when the Stanton would pop up. I'm lucky if everything for a Rainbow even shows up, let alone a couple days to finish it all. Congrats!
