2022 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball Variations Guide
The 2022 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball variations look back at three special events from the previous season: Jackie Robinson Day, the Field of Dreams game and City Connect jerseys.
In all three instances, special jerseys are at the forefront. For the City Connect and throwback-inspired Field of Dreams shots, it should be pretty obvious as the gear is so different from normal uniforms.
Jackie Robinson Day shots can be a little trickier. The most obvious sign to look for is Robinson’s ’42’ jersey number, either on the front or back. But sometimes that’s not visible in the photo so it’s much smaller an inconspicuous patches that are the giveaway.
Odds and Parallels
Although 2022 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball has three types of variations, not all are available in the same quantities.
When it comes to hobby packs, City Connect are the most common, landing 1:190 packs. Jackie Robinson Day cards are next at 1:301 hobby packs. Field of Dreams, which can also be called Iowa Cornfield based on the packs, are the SSP of the bunch, falling 1:3,614 packs or about 1:150 hobby boxes.
In addition to their base versions, City Connect and Jackie Robinson Day Variations both have a pair of parallels. Team Logo Swap versions swap out the standard letter-based abbreviation on the ticket for a team logo. These are not serial numbered.
Black parallels are one-of-ones.
Confirming 2022 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball Variations on the Back
Looking for the fastest way to spot SSPs? The code on the back works. To do this, go to the end of the fine print on the back and look at the last three digits of the CMP code. When it comes to telling regular base cards from the three types of variations, these are what you need to know:
- Base – 990
- Base Short Prints (#301-320) – 029
- City Connect – 038
- Field of Dreams – 041
- Jackie Robinson Day – 035
The codes do not change for parallels.
Yes, the writing is small, but its purpose is for production and not so much collectors as the codes identify different card types. It’s just a common short cut for Topps’ many variations.
