My LaValley rainbow just got jollier

Let's get a quick update on my Gavin LaValley rainbow.

There's a gold mini (/25), mini refractor (not numbered), Orange Ice (/25), and Orange Refractor (/25). Those rusty parallels were tricky buggers to track down, but I've got 'em now!

Here are the backs. Look at all those /25 cards. Sadly for me, nary a Christmas Card among them.

But wait a minute! WHAT's THIS!?

The elusive Red Wave (/25!)!

Ah, HELLZ YEAH:// Merry Christmas, bishes!!

My First LaValley Christmas Card. Don me now my gay apparel.

[Update: red x indicated I've gotten the card since this post was first published.]

I have one /20 card left (mini blue refractor-- which I had actually won a while back, but the seller lost it.. grumble grumble), but after that, all that's left is the scarce /5-and-under cards. Oh, and the base mini (which I'm kinda holding out on, hoping someone will trade me for it rather than me having to buy it since it's just a base card, geez. Who buys base cards in this day and age, am I right?)

Thanks for finding a minute or two for my little ol' blog! Catch ya next time.


  1. I'll give you $12 for your LaValley collection. I think that's fair.

    1. Ok, 15. Come on, you don't want all those cards of some Reds prospect.
