Topps adds Yasiel Puig Gypsy Queen card to its National wrapper redemption programs

Puig

By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

There’s one more promo card to chase at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention.

Topps announced that it will have Yasiel Puig 2013 Gypsy Queen cards — 100 available each day — at the NSCC starting on Wednesday.

How can a collector get one? Open a box of the high-end 2013 Topps Tribute World Baseball Classic Edition at the company’s booth during the show.

The Los Angeles Dodgers rookie is hitting .372 with 10 home runs and 23 RBI in 48 games this season.

I have to admit that I find it wonderfully humorous that the picture of the Puig card show a ding on the lower right front corner. Topps *still* hasn’t learned anything about quality control following the last year’s Five Star Baseball.

I’m sure its a test card and not one they will be handing out at the NSCC. people read too much into things.

any idea where it correlates to the regular GQ set? Card #351 perhaps?

“Quality control” includes marketing material. I would think that someone at Topps would’ve done a better job of ensuring that the picture they’re distributing of a prize at the National would depict a card in MT condition.

I’m sorry I missed on Bowman Inception; my budget means that I cannot collect every single high-end product Topps throws at me.

I wonder if push will have a regular card in gypsy queen and/or topps minis.

Chris in the past I purchased a box of baseball cards from Topps I think Topps Chrome,just can’t seem to remember,but they had a sealed indivual card that was in the box that was in a thick card holder.Chris in your opinion to avoid the dings and damaged cards why not put the high-end cards in hard plastic..the thinner card holders of course?I know it will be costly but the cards will be mint and no complaints from collectors about damaged cards.Whats your opinion Chris and my fellow collectors?
