I caved: More Gypsy Queen with a cameo by Topps Series 1

I'm honestly loving the new Gypsy Queen set, the same way I loved the National Chicle set last year. Still, when the opportunity arose to hit Target (ha, ha, ha), I caved, and went to get some more. Sadly, my local Target's gypsy queen stock was low, so to compensate I got a few packs on Topps series 1. Sadly, not much came out of those 2 packs of Topps:

David Price Checklist
Mickey Mantle Red Diamond
Nolan Ryan Topps 60
Ryan Howard ToppsTown
277- Trevor Hoffman
6- Neftali Feliz
95- Pedro Alvarez
Duos of Steve Carlton and CC SABATHIA
Johnny Cueto NotYoMamma card
Andrew McCutchen ToppsTown

But you didn't come for the Topps. No, you came for Gypsy Queen. I got 2 packs and a 4 pack racker.

Pack 1-
100- Nolan Ryan
132- David Murphy
248- Dustin Pedroia

187- Lance Berkman
Franklin Guitierrez Wall Climbers

Pack 3-
161- Aramis Ramirez
193- Carlos Beltran. More proof that the Mets are getting old.

30- Hanley Ramirez BROWN BORDER #'D TO 999. NICE!
Mike Aviles mini
Johnny Bench Home Run Heroes

Pack 4-
45- Carlos Gonzalez
205- Chris Johnson
269- Curtis Granderson. That's more like it...
Wall Climbers of Torii Hunter

86- Prince Fielder
120- Gaby Sanchez

Nice rip overall. Gypsy queen is still awesome.
