2020 ROSIE RAINBOW - "Blue Plate Special"

 This year, I am chasing a ROSIE RAINBOso buckle up! 

Here's my progress to date: 

Series 2 came out late last week, and I've already won an auction for a Twins Team break - I should be all set on the base card, and I picked up the father's day parallel for a good price, but I will be hunting for more! In the meantime I made one more Opening Day addition . . . 


I wasn't really expecting to get my hands on a printing plate, but I was definitely going to make an effort to grab one if the opportunity arose. I wouldn't say this was a steal, but I justified it by thinking it will be the only printing plate I add for the rainbow.  


Every rainbow is unique, this one is one-of-a-kind! If you pull any Rosario parallels in your series 2, let me know, I will be happy to try to find something you'll like in exchange for it. Especially the /10 Acetate card. I'm still chasing that for my 2015 Kennys Vargas rainbow....

  1. That's sweet to see. I have the gold foil parallel from series two that's all yours if you'd like it.

    1. Sweet- thanks! I haven't opened any series 2 yet myself, but I am sure I can find something similar to send your way in a trade.

      Can you email me at brian dot d dot oneal at gmail dot com? Let me know what you're working on and I can send you an envelope with a few cards in exchange.

    1. Huh, I guess I am off the hook, they did not include Rosario as one of the Topps Clear cards - the only Twins are Donaldson, the two rookies, Buxton, and Arraez.... just 100 acetate cards in each series.
