2015 Gypsy Queen - M L B
24 packs - 10 cards per pack
2 autos and 2 relics per box
I received these:
187 unique base cards -- or 62% of the 300 card base set
As in the past issues Gypsy Queen is a rendition of a picture of the player. The cards are brown and have a matte finish. The design is much the same as in past years.
The reverse seems to be even more simplified than in previous issues.
I also received 6 SP's of the 50 -- #ed 301 thru 350
One receives a small box of mini's in each hobby box. In total, I received 30 of the minis.
There are variations on the minis... I'm not sure what is a variation and what isn't... There are action variations, border color variations, etc...
I received 2 silver #ed to 199
1 Red - #ed to just 50
1 Basics of Baseball
Glove Stories / Queens Throwbacks
4 Glove Stories
The Throwbacks cards look 'washed out' -- not real sure how much I like them...
Walk off Winners / Pillars of the Community
6 Walk off Winners
1 Pillars of the Community
Each #ed to 499
This might be a pretty cool set to build. Personally, I believe that if one built it, it would probably be one of a handful ever built.
Both blue Sharpee on card autos.... not real sure what Chris Johnson actually wrote, but it looks OK.... (maybe sanskrit?)
Gypsy Queen is a higher end set - not really premium, but definitely higher end. Boxes here in O'do go for $110-$125. One does get 4 hits per box.
The base set contains current players, and retired players as well -- Dimaggio, Jeter, Piazza, Dawson, Cobb, Aaron to name a few. Good base set for all collectors both young and old - a good mix of players - a set rich in history.
Autos -- all autos that I have seen are on card... very good!!!
I am a fan of the minis and the framed inserts. Why I like the minis is beyond me...
Overall grade A
Go buy several boxes and send the minis (especially Rays) and the framed Rays to me!!
