2014 marks a new breed of success for Gypsy Queen. After breaking a Target discount "rack pack" of the stuff, I was overall impressed with the base set, design, and selection, as well as the inserts. However, it's nowhere close to where the 2011 set was.
Every 'discount pack' comes with three white-bordered non-numbered cards. You can usually get some nice cards out of this one.
Onto what counts, The Base Set...
What I'm saying is that it's really good this year, even coming close in border hue and graininess of photo. Also, the photography is pretty nice.
If you're still not convinced...
Onto the inserts.
These minis are just truncated versions of the base cards, which isn't bad. I just don't collect them because I don't have any mini pages, so if anybody wants these two, they're up for grabs. One of these days I need to do a Mini Giveaway or something, because I don't really collect them, except for the ones in the Topps Flagship sets.
I got two other cards worthy of mentioning, and both are numbered. Let's look at them.
So how do you top a numbered George Brett?
Overall, I was very impressed with the set, and will likely get some more packs before Archives/Series 2 hits.
