Rodney's Cardboard:1995 Pacific Prism Gold

Welcome back to another week of Rodney's Cardboard.

Before I start to ramble on about today's card, I thought I would give my wife a shout out on her birthday.

Happy Birthday honey! Hope you have a great day at work!

Now onto some cardboard.

Today's Rodney I was a little surprised took so long to find. I have been looking for this card since I started collecting Rodney 4 years ago as it never seemed to pop up. And it's not like the parallel is impossible to find. These 1995 Pacific Gold Parallels fell 2:37 packs but with only one card per pack, I guess that helps drive up the odds some.

My one fear was when I finally found this Rodney, it was going to be like a few other parallels I have let sit on eBay for a few years where it was upwards of $18 which I don't feel like investing that much.....YET.

Odds were in my favor though for a few bucks I was able to snag it.

Golden shine vs the silver shine of the regular base. Rodney looks as tired as I did chasing this one.

Card back.

When I compare the two Prisms, I actually think the base looks better than the gold. Just me.

Time for me to go make a dessert treat before the Mrs gets home. Thanks for stopping by and see you all back here for another new Rodney's Cardboard next Sunday!

  1. I'm glad that you mentioned the base looking better than the gold's, because I was thinking the same thing, but didn't want to be the one to bring it up.

    P.S. Happy birthday to Mrs. Matt!
