2017 Topps Gypsy Queen Tyler Glasnow Auto
I was at Target again the other day, but I decided to forgo the card isle this time around. Figured I better quit while ahead with Gypsy Queen after my incredibly lucky blaster last week. Instead I went on eBay looking to grab one of Tyler Glasnow's autos.
For whatever reason base autos out of Gypsy Queen seem to sell much cheaper than sets like flagship and Heritage. I was able to get this rookie auto for less than ten bucks. Not too shabby.
I was shocked that Glasnow made the team out of spring training. He had already accomplished everything you could in the minors, but it just not the Pirates way of doing business. Service time is always an issue and just about everyone was thinking it would be June by the time he would be in Pittsburgh.
If you don't know much about Glasnow he is one of those big time boom or bust prospects. He is a big kid that throws really hard, but like most big guys he has command issues. Obviously him reaching his potential would do wonders for the Pirates postseason chances. You just have to expect meltdown outings like his first start on Monday where he couldn't get out of the 3rd inning.
Yay for cheap on card autos!
Thanks for reading.
