Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Series 2 – 2013 NL ROY – Red Foil Parallel

Yes, I am still hauling in parallel cards of Jose Fernandez that were issued earlier this year.  And yes, I still need more.

This one here is the Red Foil card from Series 2 of the 2014 set.

This card comes from the 1991 Topps flagship base set of cards, and as you can see it features a neat ’40th Anniversary’ logo in the upper-left corner of the card.

I love when Topps gives us action images of Rickey – it is a perfect fit for a player that packed so much energy and excitement into each and every game in which he played.  I wish they still did that with today’s product…

Yeah baby!  After securing my last mini just last week, I have finally completed the full 8-card rainbow.  I’ve finished other Gypsy Queen rainbows in the past, but none this large – the 8-card version of Stanton is a first for me!

Just in time for 2015 Topps Update to come where Stanton should have at least 2 more rainbows to chase..

Let’s Go!
