Some of the Colors of the Rainbow

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. ROYGBIV.

Some of the colors of the rainbow are better than none.  Thanks to Night Owl, I added a red a green and a violet (purple really) to my collection.

Red.  That's a lot of power right there.  I think Trout might be the first $50 million/year player when he hits free agency at the ripe old age of 29.

Green.  You can't read the foil board name, but that's Kyle Hendricks.  Hendricks is in the Chicago farm system now at the AAA level.

Purple.  Luis Sardinas is on the Rangers 40 man roster this year.  He has appeared in 3 games and is 1/3 at the plate. He is not currently on the 25 man roster.

This is a pretty nice card.  It's from 2012 Bowman Chrome ( I guess.  I can't keep Bowman straight.)

I don't recall ever getting a package from Greg that didn't include at least one mini.  This 2013 Ginter mini of David Murphy is one of the best in the whole set.

 Look.  It's a Nelson Cruz relic that looks like a baseball.  I have it on good authority that this is from a cloth napkin stolen from the team plane by a teenager that stowed away in the plane's wheel well.  Sweet.  

Thanks Greg.  I have Dodgers for you.  I'll mail them sometime.  


  1. Haha I haven't heard ROY G BIV in years.

  2. The team plane didn't use cloth napkins that year. Would you like to try again?
