Happy rainbow day!

On a day where millions of Americans are celebrating overturning gay marriage bans in all 50 states--a victory over ignorance, injustice, and the ridiculous use of religion in politics--I thought I'd celebrate in my own way with a rainbow in the best way I know how:  with cards!

Most of you know I'm a big player collector, but most of those players get featured over on TMM since my supercollections outside of Lou Whitaker are all Wolverines, so I don't know how many of you have seen my Completed Nameplates and Rainbows page over there, not that I've added to it in quite a while.

Well, I finally have another rainbow to show off, and it's one I completed way back in October of last year:
These are the nine cards comprising Chris Getz's 2013 Topps Update rainbow (which features one of my favorite all-time Getz photos):

  • Base
  • Black (#09/62)
  • Camo (#15/99)
  • Emerald
  • Gold (#0771/2013)
  • Pink (#30/50)
  • Sapphire (#02/25)
  • Target Red
  • Walmart Blue
It may not exactly be ROYGBIV but I'll take a one-scan rainbow any day!

Once again, congratulations to those who fought so hard for equal rights and above all, a very good cause:  love.
