While our Box Busters episode is forthcoming sometime soon, we couldn’t wait to show you more of what might be in store from boxes of 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen.

Here’s a selection of hits, inserts and rarer minis (note subtle texture differences on surfaces when viewed at larger size) from the first-year retro brand courtesy of case-buster Brent Williams, who landed all of these — and plenty more — through two and a half cases of ripping on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Topps announced that any collectors who did not receive two autographs or Relics in their hobby boxes should mail their UPC code to the address below to receive a replacement card.

The Topps Company Inc.
PO BOX  2036
Duryea, PA  18642

    I wasn’t going to go for yet another retro styled set, but I have to tell you that I think the art on these cards is absolutely gorgeous. This reminds me of the best that UD Masterpieces was. The artwork on that Hank Aaron is amazing – I’ve got to get my hands on one. Hate to say it, but I may dump Allen & Ginter this year and buy this up like crazy.

    Just called my local card shop and I’m picking a box up today. : ) hope to Phil some nice stuff, especially Gehrig, Cobb or Robinson relics to add to my legends relic collection.

    Beautiful cards, just opened the two boxes that I bought at the card shop. Have one huge complaint though, one of my two autos was a flippin’ gypsy auto!!! I did get a Hanley Ramirez Framed auto relic, 4/25. The price jumped from $115 to $159 by the release date . I got it for $139 but could only buy two boxes because my card shop got screwed out of his second case.
    Hope they keep this retro style going.

    From mod: The gypsy auto was a bonus hit. You were shorted an auto.

    From mod: Yes, they are plug cards.

    I’ve seen several opened and between quality, size of packs, the ginormous checklist, and the decent list of players you could pull, it is going to be as hot as Tribute!
