The Rodney Brew: 2021 Illusions Trophy Collection 1/1

*takes a sip, gets ready for a new cards over coffee post on this fine Sunday*

It has taken me some time to think of a good name for a Rodney Hampton segment on this blog, I have finally come up with a good one finally I believe.

Hope you are ready for some Rodney Brew. It's a special combination of coffee and Rodney that will include the newest additions to my Super Collection of Rodney Hampton cards.

This newest segment will be added to the lineup of these ones already established,
  • Coffee Break
  • The State Of The Hobby
  • Unfinished Cup
  • Coffee With
  • Would You Rather
  • Slice Of American Pie
  • Giant Cup
I still need to think of a way to intertwine my newest Kerry Collins, Charles Way, and Eli Mannings. I would be happy to take some suggestions below! Maybe even turn those all into one segment name.

As for today, let's move on and talk about some Rodney.

Today's Rodney is a huge one. I go from questioning chasing this series of Rodney's since the main focus of this one is Saquon to actually landing the biggest card in the chase thanks to my buddy Shane from Cheap Wax Wednesday fame.

The 1/1 is mine!! This is probably the first Rodney rainbow chase I have done with landing the 1/1 earlier on before finishing it.

This design is a bit funky with the diamond shapes.
Back of the card looks like the rest.

Once again, here are the ones that I know exist and I will cross off the ones I have with every post. The ones that are offered are, /35, /25, /10, /5 and 1/1. If there are any others outside of these, that information would be new to me.

The only one left for the rainbow is the /35. There is one on eBay which is listed for a higher BIN than this 1/1 went for. I guess I will wait on that one for awhile.

Thanks to my buddy Shane for helping with this one.

*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*

I think rainbow chases are fun, though very costly. I hope to finish this Rodney one up soon, but not sure how long it will take before I do. At least I got the toughest ones out of the way.

I may post all of my Rodney rainbows at some point together in one post.

Thoughts on today's addition and I am also curious which segment is your favorite(s) so far on here.

  1. Congratulations on adding the 1/1 to your Hampton & Barkley collection.

  2. It certainly is shiny, although I don't imagine that very many 1/1's these days aren't.


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
