2021 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball Variations Guide
A lot is going on with the 2021 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball variations. Like recent years, many take on distinct themes based on special in-season events. Also like recent years, many don’t pop out right away as things don’t necessarily look out of the ordinary.
2021 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball Variations Overview
SSP cards in 2021 Topps Gypsy Queen fall under three themes: Jackie Robinson Day, Mask Up and Negro League Centennial/Roberto Clemente Day.
Of these, Mask Up Variations are likely to catch your attention the fastest. Using photos from the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, players are shown wearing masks. These are also the toughest variations to pull, landing 1:1,651 hobby packs.
Jackie Robinson Day Variations are back for the fourth consecutive year. With these, you’re going to want to look at players’ jersey numbers. If 42 is on the front or the back of their clothing, it’s likely an SSP. These are 1:207 packs.
Finally, two commemorative events — the Negro League Centennial and Roberto Clemente Day — are folded into the third variation group. Landing 1:204 packs, take a peek at any special patches players might have. Look closely as some can be obscured and barely visible.
As mentioned, they can be somewhat stealth and hard to spot at a glance.
2021 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball Variations Parallels
Adding another layer to 2021 Gypsy Queen’s SSP hunt are parallels. Both the Jackie Robinson Day and Negro League Centennial/Roberto Clemente cards have two additional versions.
Black versions offer up an easy-to-spot border change. There’s also the 1/1 serial number. With 1:80,900 odds for the Jackies Robinson Day and 1:51,094 for the Negro League Centennial cards, chances are you’re not going to pull one.
New Team Script Font Swap parallels are just as subtle as some of the variations. Base cards and variations use blocky font that’s in all caps. Team Script Font Swap parallels have a cursive font. These are two different cards, but they show the difference with the team name.
Variation Team Script Font Swap parallels are 1:827 hobby packs for Jackie Robinson Day and 1:508 for Negro League Centennial/Roberto Clemente variations.
Mask Up SSPs don’t have any parallels.
Confirmation Codes for 2021 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball Variations
With so many subtleties among the 2021 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball variations, you might be looking for an easier way to tell if you have an SSP.
There is a second method. Whether it’s easier, though, depends on how well your eyes adjust to tiny text.
Flip the card over to the back and go straight to the bottom. Like all recent Topps products, the copyright block at the bottom has a code at the end. That’s the key. Used in production, these codes have different ends for different types of cards.
