Prince is mostly remembered for Purple Rain and as such is commonly associated with the color purple.
I wanted to show off only my 22 favorite purple parallels, but I realized many of these have never appeared on this blog.
So with that being said here are (more than) my 22 favorite Cutch cards in the shade of purple. Besides the first one I am going to show off, they are not ranked by preference.
Let's begin with the centerpiece of my Andrew McCutchen as a member of the Phillies collection. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I preordered a /99 or less autograph from Twinsjake the day he listed this Road To Opening Day. I received the lowest number he had.
Now for some others...
This gets some more high preference too because it is jersey numbered (22/xx).
The final Opening Day card of Cutch in a Pirates uniform (even though he actually appeared on the Giants Opening Day roster).
The patch on this card is awesome. The fact that it has a sticker to research what game it's from is awesome. My only problem with the card is Topps says this is a purple parallel, but it looks more blue than purple.
Cutch purple parallel Toys R Us exclusive from his MVP season? Yes, please.
Toys R Us purple exclusive parallels will surely be missed in my collection going forward. I know that there is another retailer taking over the purple exclusives, but I don't have any Meijer near me.
I am going to group all three of these Prizm together. I love the Prizm color parallels.
2015 Tribute (/10!!!), 2015 Triple Threads, 2014 Triple Threads
Let's finish with a bang!
As in Transcendent parties with Topps. The highest priced box of all time for baseball can get you a chance at a purple Transcendent frame auto. Every box granted the purchaser an invitation to attend the Topps Transcendent party with past special guests being Mike Trout, Kris Bryant, Hank Aaron, and Shohei Otaku.
Now that's a party, man (Prince pun intended)
