Gavin LaValley is included in the recently-released product 2014 Bowman Mini Chrome. [Actually it came out several weeks ago but this post has been an in-progress draft for a long time because I kept having new LaValleys on the way that caused me to wait.] It's a factory-set-only deal. While technically a different product than 2014 Bowman Draft, I'm counting it as part of the same rainbow since the card looks the same (just smaller), essentially adding 14 new possible cards (thanks to the parallels inserted randomly into each set) and bringing the master rainbow to a grand total of 50 cards. Wow.
Here are a couple 1/1s I've added to my rainbow recently:
Yep, I've got 2 printing plates-- one mini Chrome, one standard Chrome-- coincidentally both yellow.
It's funny how the consensus for the order of most desirable color of printing plate is also alphabetical:
Black = coolest
Cyan = pretty cool
Magenta = could be worse
Yellow = meh, it doesn't look great, but it's a printing plate; 1/1 and all. That's what matters, right?
Even if you dumb it down and replace cyan with "blue" and magenta with "red" or "purple" it remains in alphabetical order. Fascinating!
Anyways, here's more versions of that card.
Prepare your eyes for an onslaught of shiny.
The top two cards are both the Blue Wave, but I'm considering one an unofficial variation. The card on the left has the wave "swell" at the bottom left, while the card on the right has the swell at the top left. And even if I switched them around, this would remain true. Not a dupe; Variation!
My rainbow for 2014 Bowman Gavin LaValley is at 23 cards deep (not counting that variation).. nearly half the theoretical "master rainbow"... not bad!

That "Blue Mojo" (bottom left) is #'d 53/75.. bonus "mojo" points for being the "jersey number eBay 1/1" (luckily the seller didn't notice that and try to sell it for a premium.)
So there you have it, a crapton of Gavin LaValley cards.
Thanks for stopping by.
