My Andre Dawson 2012 Panini Cooperstown ‘Rainbow’ Is Complete!!!

My Andre Dawson 2012 Panini Cooperstown ‘Rainbow’ Is Complete!!!

I know, I know – It is just a 4-card set, but when I have struggled to complete other, larger set-based rainbows, I need to celebrate the little victories to keep me motivated to go after more.

This set comes from the 2012 Panini Cooperstown issue – which has been pretty well received since its debut roughly seven months back.

And with a checklist that celebrates the greatest talents in the history of the game, there is no wonder why many collectors, myself included, are on board with Panini.

The set featured one card of Andre Dawson, and I was able to grab it pretty quickly.  From there, it was all about the colored parallel cards and I was able to peck them off as well.

Here are the cards:

Base:

dawson-panini-cooperstown

Crystal:

dawson-panini-crystal

Red Crystal:

dawson-panini-red

Blue Crystal:

dawson-panini-blue

Not bad at all.  And the fact that the picture used of Dawson for this set shows him in a Cubs uniform makes the Red & Blue versions just a tad more special than cards of players that did not suit up for the Cubbies.

I am very pleased with how this came out, and I am eager to see what Panini does with their 2013 Cooperstown release.

Here is one more look, this time the full set!!!

Have a great night, everyone!!

  1. Nice. I’m still waiting for another of the regular crystal Ron Santo’s to show up on Ebay. Seems at this rate I may never complete the rainbow.
