2011 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball Product Preview
Are you ready for the Boys of Summer? Topps Certainly is! Returning after its first release in 1887 the Topps Gypsy Queen set is back with an all new look and line up! Colorful yet elegant cards which are sure to delight baseball cards fans. Collectors should be able to buy this new product on the 21st April and the presell price is around $100. A hobby box will contain 24 packs of 10 cards each and should deliver 2 autographs and 2 relics cards per box. Autographs chasers will also be happy to hear that the autographs are on-card and not sticker autos, that’s always a plus especially for a product that doesn’t come with a high-end price point. Get ready to bust some Topps this April and be sure to drop by SCF to show us your pulls!
Configuration: 24 packs per box. 10 cards per pack.
