Nope, the comma is necessary. ‘If I have some balloons, a red, a blue and a white,” I still have two balloons: one of them a blue and a white. The comma is not superfluous because it divides ‘blue’ and ‘white’ into singulars. While it could be argued the ‘a’ defines singularity, adding the comma nails division.

Well, according to your profile, we only have nine months to resolve this before you get balloons.
