Gypsy Queen heats up!
As a Gypsy Queen rookie, I'm not really sure how big any hit really is, but some cool cards came out of the eight hobby packs I opened tonight.
I decided to open up my Hobby Box eight packs at a time - I usually do 4-6 packs a day, to allow more time to write up some of the better cards, but since Gypsy Queen has been out for awhile, I decided to open a slightly larger amount.
I posted some of my San Francisco Giants hits yesterday, and I will say, that trend DID continue. But I saw some other nice cards, as well - starting with this framed paper blue Mickey Mantle above. I'm not sure if it comes out as good as it looks in person, but it's a really nice card, and it's numbered /599... cool stuff!
I am not sure what this is. And I'm not sure I like it. Some other one's are actually autographed, and I think they are really rare. But I don't really get it. Is it humor?
Yup, more Giant love. So now I have a big Lincecum jersey swatch, and this framed little one. It's cool and the frame is nice and heavy. Go Giants! (I guess)
And then an on-card auto. My other was Brett Anderson from the A's. Two rather non-descript players. On-card is cool, though, so I'm still enjoying the card.
And, of course, what would a Gypsy Queen post be without some mini's? There is a sepia, a green, a blackm and Yaz and Koufax. Still have no idea what my plan is with GQ mini's. I am thinking to try to obtain one mini for each player (1-350) and simply not worry about color or style or short prints... any thoughts on this plan?
