Gypsy Queen gets jumbo wall art treatment
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Topps is making its latest baseball card release even bigger — as wall art.
This year’s edition of Gypsy Queen, which arrived last week, has been given the online wall art treatment as Topps has unveiled the Gypsy Queen collection on Topps.com.
There are 599 different print options and one set offering in this one — all from the fifth edition of the retro-styled line.
The Queen’s Throwbacks insert cards are available as a 5-by-7 set limited to only 99 serial-numbered copies. These inserts show players in throwback uniforms on a largely black-and-white design on 16-point stock. There are 25 cards in this one and it costs $49.99.
These cards also are offered as 10-by-14 prints limited to 99 copies for $29.99, while a Gold edition limited to just one copy is $99.99. They are available for all 25 cards.
The standard Gypsy Queen cards can be found in two print formats — a 1/1 Black edition 10-by-14 print for $99.99 and a standard print limited to 99 copies for $29.99. These are available for 275 different players in the set.
