Rainbow in the Dark 25: An Addition to the Josh Reddick Super Rainbow

I recently added a new card to my Josh Reddick 2013 Super Rainbow, which is made up of cards from Topps Series 1, Chrome, Opening Day, and Topps Mini. I have just about everything except for the 1 / 1 cards, so new additions are few and far between. In this case, I was able to nab the Magenta Printing Plate from Topps Chrome. I now have half of the Chrome Printing Plates, as well as the Superfractor. I have not been able to locate 1 / 1's from the other 2013 products yet. I imagine that is because the Chrome production run gets opened at a higher percentage than the other products, as the 'value' potential for that product is a bit higher with the different Refractor variants pulling in decent money on the secondary market.

I decided this would be a good opportunity to show off the Super Rainbow in it's entirety, as I now have 38 variations of this card. I have four cards from Topps Mini, three from Opening Day, fifteen from Series 1, and sixteen from Topps Chrome. By my count there are 11 cards out there that I am missing, made up of 10 printing plates and the Platinum parallel from Topps Mini.


  1. That's a super super rainbow, dude! Congrats!

  2. Awesome progress.

    It's really cool to see all those colors laid out like that.

  3. I have to admit I am also impressed when looking at all the scans laid out on the screen. When I showed the Super Rainbow to my wife, she remarked that Topps really knows how to squeeze the money out of collectors.
