Prospecting the Rainbow

This is another post that I've written ahead of time.  Mostly because I didn't know A)  What time the Reds/Pirates game would be and B) If I'd be in the mood to write a card post.

Here's three out of the 2000 Topps Gold Label box.  We need some shiny!

Pack 14:
19.  Carlos Delgado - Blue Jays
23.  Carlos Beltran - Royals

82.  Ruben Mateo - Rangers
88.  Sean Burroughs - Padres
94.  Bobby Bradley - Pirates

The Beltran card is quite nice - I love the jumping at the wall shot!

Pack 15:
3.   Mark Quinn - Royals
51.  Michael Barrett - Expos
58.  Sean Casey - Reds
59.  Randy Johnson - Diamondbacks
PD1.  Prospector's Dream:  Mark McGwire - Cardinals

The Prospector's Dream cards are seeded 1:16 packs.  A very, very nice pickup for St. Louis (and for madding who claimed the Cardinals)!

Pack 16:
13.  Roberto Alomar - Indians

35.  Matt Williams - Diamondbacks
54.  Adam Piatt - Athletics
69.  Ivan Rodriguez - Rangers
ER11.  End of the Rainbow:  Nick Johnson - Yankees

Two inserts in three packs isn't too shabby.  The End of the Rainbows are seeded 1:7 packs so they are a bit more common than the Prospector's Dream cards.  I think anyone who ends up with one of the End of the Rainbow cards will be happy when the see the card in person - they really do shine like the rainbow!
