2017 Topps Gypsy Queen Variations Gallery

Share:

2017 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball underwent some major configuration changes compared to past years. But it wasn’t only in mini cards and memorabilia cards largely being left out. The 2017 Topps Gypsy Queen variations see some changes as well.

Rather than standard photo variations, this set has them in three distinct themes, one of which brings Gypsy Queen a little closer to its tobacco roots (albeit with a more family-friendly angle).

Capless Variations

2017 Topps Gypsy Queen Capless Variations highlight 20 players with different photos. All of these short prints have players without a hat or helmet. Base versions are inserted 1:158 hobby packs. They’re about twice as tough in retail packs, landing 1:327.

Throwback Variations

A familiar face among the Topps Heritage variations, Throwbacks pop up in 2017 Gypsy Queen as well. These highlight players in Turn Back the Clock Night photos wearing jerseys from the past. Given how recently some of these uniforms were retired, it might require a second look for some of them. Throwbacks are inserted 1:420 hobby packs and 1:561 retail packs.

Gum Ad Card Back Content Variations

The third and final type of 2017 Topps Gypsy Queen variations are Gum Ad Card Back Content. The images on the front are the same. However, these ten cards get their inspiration from the ads found on a lot of tobacco sets a century ago (or on the backs of retro-themed minis in more recent releases like Topps 206 and Allen and Ginter). The flipside of these cards have a retro ad for Topps Gum.

These are the toughest of the three variation styles, falling 1:629 hobby packs and 1:838 retail packs.

Parallels

Although variations appear regularly in Topps products, they don’t normally have parallels. They do in 2017 Gypsy Queen.

All three have Missing Blackplate parallels. Other than the bar with the player’s name, these leave out black from the four-color printing process. The result is an image that looks faded. If in doubt, look at the Gypsy Queen logo in the bottom corner of the card. Normally dark, it’s a lighter blue for the Missing Blackplate parallels.

All three also have one-of-one Black parallels as well.

Capless and Throwback Variations have Green parallels as well. Exclusive to retail, each is numbered to 99. Because of their exclusivity, Capless Green parallels actually available in equal numbers in retail packs. Throwback Green parallels are actually more common than base versions in retail packs. However, once you factor in hobby, the base versions still have more total copies.

Finally, Throwback Variations have Missing Nameplate parallels. Odds aren’t mentioned on packs, although they appear to be tough to pull. These have the player’s name missing from the front of the card.

    I enjoyed ripping this product, now I need to go back and check all those short prints.
    To me this is the fun part, this is the stuff that brings out my inner nerd. Topps has done a good job of addding a little more than advertised ( My inner nerd appreciates it) and so do I.

  2. Jonathan 11 April, 2017 at 16:12

    Instead of changing background colors and having 1a, 1b, 1c, & 1d variations, why doesn’t Topps level with us and number the cards 1 to 4,962? Or would that chase off a few collectors? Really, 5,000 cards under one name is too silly for me to even purchase a pack. I’ll just trade for what I want and spend less on postage than I would getting cases shipped, and I also won’t end up stuck with loads of cards no one wants.

  3. Chris 17 April, 2017 at 00:54

    This is a very good set. The throwbacks and gum backs, and their corresponding parallels, are fun sets to collect and supply is not plentiful. The missing nameplate throwback cards are extremely hard to find. Only 7-8 examples total have surfaced so far, with no duplicates for any player. This is the release of the year so far.

  4. Aaron 31 May, 2017 at 21:44

    Pulled a Mike Trout out of a retail pack ( “missing black plate/ gum back ad.) Is there anyway to determine how many of these were actually ” printed” or could it possibly just an error that was corrected quickly? I have only seen 2 others and both were posted on eBay. Also pulled an Alex Bregman Ssp red Parallell #’d 10, I have yet to see another. Any idea how one could price this? Considering Beckett does not list Ssp?? Any feedback is welcome.

    • Ryan Cracknell 31 May, 2017 at 22:05

      It’s in the database, however because they’re so scarce there hasn’t been enough market activity to get a book value. Topps did not release print runs for them.
