Gypsy Queen Want List is up !!

The last few days I showed you the "hits" of my three 2014 GQ boxes. Still, with breaking three boxes this still does not mean I have even the base set complete. At the same time, I have a pile of extras including a bunch of inserts for trade, even 3 minis. I am chasing the full set including inserts and minis so if you want to trade do let me know ! You can find my Want List here !

As every post need a card in my view please have a look at my cool new Rivera card !!

Thanks for visiting my blog today !

Gypsy Queen Break, Box 3 !

Time to show-off Gypsy Queen box 3, again focussing on the "hits" !! Here we go !!
Let's start with the auto's ! Here's Kickham and Flores, not the greatest autos but oke...

Here are the two relic cards, Brown and Freeman, actually like the Freeman card !

The blue-framed cards, Clemente and Glavine, yes Glavine !!!!! Best pull of the box for me !!

Last-up, the numbered minis, Ross, Montero and Rodney !

That was it for my 3 Gypsy Queen boxes this year, not bad but not great either. I am chasing the full set of base and minis, including all the inserts and have plenty for trade so if you are up to it, let's trade !!

Gypsy Queen, box 1 !

Gypsy Queen ! Each year I have my GQ "tradition", that is opening 3 boxes of Gypsy Queen. This year was no different !! As the blogosphere is already swamped with base cards let me stick to the "hits" !

Here's box 1, starting with the Auto's !!

Locke is already claimed but the Eaton is for trade ! I was in luck with this box as instead of 2 autos it actually contained 3 autos !! It's Oil Can Boyd, a cool one for my pitcher collection !

The two relic cards were actually pretty cool !! A great Lincecum for my Lincecum PC and a awesome Encarnacion numbered to only 10 !!

Two blue-framed cards in each box, here's Jones and Killebrew !

To finish the overview look at two cool minis ! I love minis, here are McCann and Choo !

That was it for box 1, by on the look-out for box 2 tomorrow ! My Want list should be up soon, will be chasing the full base card set and the minis !!

Topps Supreme !!

Topps Supreme, a cool set it seems that I, until last week, never heard of ! I noticed a cool Rizzo card from this set, it looked like a "proper" card and not a scam card so I did some digging and noticed that Topps Supreme apparently was a set that only came out in Japan ! Don't really see the logic but oke, it is what it is !

So here is my first Topps Supreme card ! Meet Supreme Stylings Rizzo !!

Thanks for visiting my blog today !

Another Bob Walk the Plank trade !!

A few days ago I showed you my 2nd trade with Max, today I will show a 2nd trade with Matt at Bob Walk the Plank ! Matt had a few more cards for me in store and I had some more Pirates for him ! Here's the loot !!

Let's start with the coolest card, a Gary Sheffield "base" card. Just to stress, this is not a simple "base card" but actually has a piece of a "base" as a relic ! My first "base" relic card in my collection !!

Next up a bunch of minis, Matt send me a pile of 2013 Gypsy Queen minis. I am still trying to complete the minis set so this was a big help ! If you have any for trade do let me know !!

Matt also send me some cool Prizm cards, here's Kershaw and Rizzo !

A cool Sabathis was also included, here he is as an Indian ! Let's hope he will improve his game this year.

Another cool relic card, one of the few players of the Dutch team, Andruw Jones, and Pettitte !

Two more Yankee cards, Rivera and Jeter !

Last up, a cool Kershaw and a nice Sabathia !

That was it, another awesome package, thanks very much Matt. I hope I pull you some Pirates when I break some Gypsy Queen next week !

Coin for a Coin

Max at Starting Nine recently showed a cool Sabathia coin card from this year's Heritage set. Although Sabathia has had a rough 14 months spell or so I still chase his cards so a trade was quickly born, also because I had a coin card for trade for Max, a Mike Trout one.

Here's the Sabathia card that arrived on my doorstep !

I love this card "Big CC and Little AL", numbered to only 15. Really hope CC gets back in the flow this year !

Max also included a bunch of Glavine cards !!! I love Glavine cards and happy to add these to my Glavine PC !! Here's a Sports Illustrated and a Leaf Limited !!

Glavine was also a very good Hockey player !!

Lastly, a cool Finest and Prism, not a 2013 Prizm but from 1999 one !

This was already our 2nd trade in as many months and another cool one ! Thanks Max, looking forward to a next one !!
