    Rainbows with all 1/1s

    I could have sworn there was a thread on this a number of months ago, but I'm having no luck digging it up. Has anyone been able to put such a set together, including each 1/1 (printing plates and whatever else)?

    I'm close on a few sets, but never really expected to do it: until yesterday, that is, when I was putting my recent pickups in order to scan and realized that I finished 2014 Bowman for Jonny Gomes. 21 cards in total, 7 of which are 1/1s. A huge thanks is due to [MENTION=2995]mudflap02[/MENTION] for this; not only did Jeff hit a cheap BIN on the red 1/1 and then immediately offer it to me, he later sent me a heads up when he saw the magenta plate listed with a BIN. That plate was the one that finished off the set.

    Fun fact: The blue is 1/500, the gold 1/50, and the purple ice 1/10.


    Anyone else completed or close?

    Except for the Donruss Challenge set, I've never gotten more than 2 of any one plate.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases, and any Grady Sizemores I don't have

    You always come with very hard challenges Luc. I have a couple of Bowman and Bowman Chromes with the 1/1s but not all plates. My only one would be this Cantu:

    2007 Topps Triple Threads

    Edgar Gonzalez Collection: - the 1/1's: 108/111 (97.3%) Have 12 1/1s out of 29
    Jorge Cantu Collection: 487 / 688 (70.78%), 58 1/1s (14 non plates)
    - the 1/1's: 429/443 (96.84%)
    Total Mexican Collection: 4,326
    Mexican autographs: 129/130 and on baseballs 118/130

    This what I've got. Three 1/1s and all three variations of the Jersey #/199.

    This is the closest I have. I don't like printing plates so I never go after them, but I do have both the 1/1 Superfractor as well as the 1/1 Canary Refractor:

    Tried multiple times, but always end up never finding some plates.

    Not a Topps product, and I will have to provide a scan later, but I have the full run of 2005 Leaf Certified Materials for Jason Varitek.

    That is:
    Base
    Red /100
    White NNO
    Blue /50
    Gold /25
    Emerald /5
    Black /1
    Red Bat /250
    White Bat /100
    Blue Bat /100
    Gold Bat /25
    Emerald Bat /5
    Black Bat /1

    I also have all of the 2000 Prism Variations, though there are no 1/1s.

    EDIT: I am really jealous of that Jonny Gomes rainbow. Only because they are Red Sox of course though.

    Wow, those are some great cards posted. I really like those patches [MENTION=3300]vwnut13[/MENTION] and that cut auto [MENTION=1758]Ty Hope[/MENTION]. [MENTION=2441]r2d2[/MENTION], that's an amazing set of printing plates; of all the sets to have a set of plates from, I'm not sure you can top that one. Does Cantu not have a non-plate 1/1 in that set?

    Oops Just confirmed that there is one (Platinum). It appears my brain tried to fool me into thinking I got the full rainbow because I got the four plates.

    Nice cards all around, glad I could help you out with that Luc.

    I think that for 2 guys who obsessively collect the same player (when nobody else seems to even notice him), I think you and I have this thing figured out. Can you imagine if we battled it out over every nice Gomes card that came up? All 2 of them a year?

    One of these days we need to draw a line in the sand and publicly declare that the bidders' collusion is over. Maybe that will shake the last 2 or 3 of them out of the tree.

    Be on the lookout for these cards, and win* a "prize"

    Amazing efforts gents! I don't see how anyone can take on such a ructions without starting with the Super and other 1/1s. Once you miss one of those, it's all over.

    I tried to to get the Allen and Ginter Kevin Van Dam (bass fisherman) rainbow a few years ago. I think I still need the wood and one of the plates. What's worse is that they're all missing, I misplaced them at some point...

    I think there might be a Mirror Black Autograph as well.
