Is there such a thing as 08-09 OPC Update Metal Rainbow cards??? I have heard a few people talk about them, but I have never seen one and they are not on UD or Beckett. Do these exist or are people referring to the Gold or normal Metal Parallels?

Probably Metal-X

I don't know. Look at this, it isn't mine, but I originally thought this was the Gold parallel. But this card looks like some kind of a metal card. It does not have the mountains in the back and it is way to light to be a normal metal card:

Are you positive that is metal X? RGM81 has the Gorges bas Metal X and it has the mountains. The RCs have the mountains. I have not seen a Metal X without the mountains.

Metal-X have the mountains.. Metal don't.

Not in all cases. Easy way to tell the difference between the two.

Metal - Doesn't shine like a refractor (i.e. no rainbow colours when you turn it in the light)

Metal-X - It does shine like a refractor (i.e. has rainbow colours when you turn it in the light)

Then theres the Gold/Rainbow which are similar to the Metal-X that they shine rainbow colours, but the OPC text logo is plain white with no shine.

So there is no such thing as a Metal rainbow? Just Gold/Rainbow, Metal, and Metal X?

That's correct - fun eh?

Wish UD can just TELL us what is what on the card or make it a little bit easier.

I'm really surprised that they didn't - they're generally pretty good with stating the set that the card is from, I don't know why they didn't just put "2008-09 O-Pee-Chee Metal X" on the back like they do with a lot of the releases.

I only consider it the Metal X if it has mountains, just to be sure

Yeah, that's what I think. Metal X mountains, Metal darker, anything else, gold, lol.

no i think theres only one, it said some have the mountains and some don't so they're both thrown into the metal x category

as far as I am concerned there are three versions

Gold
Metal
Metal X

People are just reading into it way to much. just my opinion.

As far as I am concerned....I think UD needs to stop confusing the consumer and make the parallels so everyone can easily tell the difference.....or not make so many of them.....

Okay:
Gold
Metal
Metal X

This is what I have thought from the beginning. So there is no need to look for any Bogosian Metal X "parallels" then??? Just pick up one?
