First Taste of Gypsy Queen

I didn't have much of a desire to pick up any new Gypsy Queen. The Pirates checklist really didn't offer much new. As usual my focus is always finding cards of guys that haven't got a lot of love being showcased as a Pirate. Enter Francisco Cervelli

2016 Gypsy Queen Francisco Cervelli Black Printing Plate

Cervelli has performed at a high level ever since taking the field for the Buccos. This has made him quite the fan favorite.  It took a little bit, but this is starting to show in card prices. This plate cost me just a shade below $20 shipped. Not a great price, but it allowed me to pick up another high end card of Cervelli so I'll take it. 

In years past I would be really excited about the release of GQ, but my set building days are pretty much over. The sp's proved to be way too expensive and I just didn't enjoy set completion as much as finding cool Pirate cards. At some point I would like to put together a vintage set, but for now I'm set retired building sets. 

Thanks for reading.


  1. Nice! I like the looks of those

  2. I joined a GQ group break. I'll send you all the base you want

  3. Man... those red borders sure stand out. I've always been a fan of the silver and red combination. Goes back to my Ultraman days.

    1. How cool would it be if a set color coordinated parallels to the team!
