Nice gets! The 02 electric rainbow still eludes me in my Wakefield collection and I also need two from 2000 Pacific. I can imagine how great finding them feltAnd...another post about cards that arrived in my mailbox recently.
The 2002 Upper Deck 40-man rainbow! Definitely obscure, but definitely satisfying to complete. The one I was missing was the Hit Makers Electric card, bottom center in the photo. I knew these parallels aren't that rare, but this card #1070 (!) never seemed to show up. So one night I did a deep dive into the bowels of ebay and found it. A seller was offering your pick of 4 Electric parallels for $10, but only listed the card numbers and not the player names. That's why I never found it in my rotation of "Alomar" related searches. So I snagged it, and proceeded to strain my oblique while patting myself on the back.

Another rainbow, but this isn't quite complete. The 2000 Pacific base card parallels. This set was kinda cool since there were two versions of each base card, an action photo and a portrait photo. With 6 parallels each. The portrait photo is unusual in that it features Robbie squinting hard because the photographer had him staring straight into the sun. Not great technique. But still I was glad to find the portrait Ruby parallel on Beckett a couple weeks ago, but still missing the portrait emerald green and action platinum blue. Somewhere over the rainbow those cards are waiting for me
