Me: I'm so sick of all the different parallels and colors of rainbows

Also me:



:D:D:D

2013 Topps is my absolute favorite Albert Pujols Topps card, and I've been a big fan of his since I got back into collecting years ago. Not just for what he does on the field, but what he does off the field to help those with Down Syndrome.

A few weeks ago, I had an idea to fill up a 9 pocket page of colorful refractors of this card, but realized there were more than 9, and one thing led to another. :)

This was assembled using eBay, COMC, Beckett and most importantly, BO. Shout out to enyouartist for the help! I never thought I'd have a superfractor of Pujols.

I don't have the pink /5 refractor or atomic /10 and while I can live without them, I could certainly live with them as well! I'm mainly thankful/happy to enjoy what I've been able to get without worrying if it is "complete" or not.

Now that is something this Pujols collector can appreciate. I don't have any superfractors or printing plates of Pujols.
Thanks! I have yet to acquire a Pujols rookie to keep. Stay tuned :D

Me: I'm sick of the endless avalanche of colored parallels.

Also Me: I am a couple cards away from the 2019 Panini Prizm rainbow - 28 parallels in total.

But weakly in my defense, I went after that one precisely because it's so absurd that it's a piece of collecting history...and I wanted to add that facet to my PC. I am not immune from HSV (human stupidity virus).

I'm actually in love with that stupid, twisted set. Lime green donuts for life! I thought there were only 22 parallels? Who are you going after?

Boom! I think I just listed the white sparkle alomar on eBay yesterday or so. Need it? I just got the black finite of the tier 3 Pujols yesterday myself. I may put another few rainbows together as well!
