    2016 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball hobby Box for review

    This Ad will be removed when you a member of

    First and foremost, I'd like to thank our sponsors at Topps for providing us with this box.

    This product has a feel of the old cigarette packs from where baseball cards originated. It has brought an aspect of today's technology with booklets and parallels galore. Talk about a fun product to open, as you're guaranteed 4 hits per box, with those consisting of two relics and 2 autographs. The fun only starts there as there are so many ways to go for set collectors.

    With the base set consisting of 350 cards and 50 of them being short prints, there's a challenge to put the set together. Then add the challenge of getting the base card image variations and the challenge gets harder. Topping that off, the minis have the same challenge, as well, which could provide a very challenging master set to put together for any collector.

    Moving onto the relics and autographs, you have a paradise of sweet looking options that will leave thrill seekers looking for their next box to open. The artwork and design of the cards are just awesome in my opinion. With all the various options from bat barrels, mini autographs, booklets, ancient era remnants, laces around the league, mini patch booklets, and the list goes on and on.

    This product is awesome in my opinion but some collectors might say it has too much going on. I disagree that the old feel of this product with the value of outstanding hits is worth grabbing a box and seeing for yourself.
