Retail break: 2014 Topps Gypsy Queen baseball cards

The newest baseball product on the market is 2014 Gypsy Queen. The first year, 2011, was great. Marie and I opened a case and had a great time with lots of relics of Hall of Fame players and stars.

Since then, however, Gypsy Queen hasn’t been as great, but I picked up two value packs anyway. Each value pack comes with three retail packs and a pack of exclusive white-framed border cards.

Here’s what I got:

  1. Would you be willing to trade the Big Hirok black mini? If so I'd love a shot at it.

  2. I'm a Yankees fan, so I am keeping the Kuroda card for now.

  3. Okay, well if you ever want to part with it let me know. I've got some Yankees cards that were made and distributed exclusively in Japan.
