But during one of my daily Ebay Barney searches, I saw a parallel I'd never seen before.
According to the contest rules, those who got an access pass in series one hobby boxes had until December 31, 2014 to redeem them. In January, Topps chose the winners from among those who redeemed passes. I suppose that's why I hadn't seen the card before...it's been out for just a little while.
Since only ten of the sets were made, that makes this card as rare as the clear acetate card I'm still hunting. The 1st Edition cards was a BIN and I snapped it up almost immediately. I didn't want to see it pass by.
Actually, I'm going to go out on a limb and say the 1st Edition cards will be harder to find than the clear ones. The reason...they come as part of a factory set. I'll bet some of the winners won't want to break up the set, which will cut down on the supply.
My 2014 parallel collection is now up to 23 cards...with one more to go. Before I get to the tile, I was playing with a GIF maker and here are all 23 in GIF form
...and the tile...
