Tonight my friends and I each busted a box of Gypsy Queen. From the pictures above you can see that I did not get a major hit, but we a great time opening the packs. Our once a month routine usually turns out to be an all night affair where we talk baseball, order some food and drink a few beers. My favorite hits were probably the numbered minis in the middle picture. The Bench and Rizzuto were numbered to 199 and the Votto to 99. At the very least I accumulated some trade bait for my new blog friends.
My buddy Micah was the big winner tonight. He pulled a Miguel Montero printing plate. This was cool because it was the printing plate for the collision insert set. He wasn't done yet. Micah also pulled a Wade Boggs jumbo jersey /25 and a nice Matt Carpenter auto. He definitely had the hot hand tonight.
Overall Gypsy Queen is a fun break. Running us a little over $60 a box you get two on card autos and two relic cards. Plus you have the nice numbered cards and a boatload of minis. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we think we may do another round next month.
