Topps Gypsy Queen 2011

These images just appeared on the Topps Facebook page. This is the first time I had heard of this set but by going by these images this is going to be one sweet looking set!

How cool does this triple auto relic look? Longo, Wright and Robinson auto/relics on one card. But they look like stickers, although they may be clear.

Here's what the single autos should look like and its on card!

I guess this is what the base cards will look like.

This will probably be a one per pack, much like the T206 Bronze borders.

This I have no idea about. I know they are including Diamonds in their flagship series. Now it looks like they are branching out with other Gems to include in other sets. No idea what the odds on these cards are or who the chick in the picture is.

MINIS!!! I love minis! Much like the Ichiro above I'm guessing this will be a one per pack job.
The art work on these cards is amazing and much better than the Chicle set where all the players were replaced with artist impressions of how the players evil twin would look like.
Now this is clearly a vintage set. Does this mean that Topps will be bumping off one of their vintage sets next year? We know that Heritage is coming back (with Koufax!) and I'm fairly confident that Ginter will return so what product will be bumped?


  1. Not bad. Of course on-card auto's would be nice!!!

  2. When I first saw this, my thought was that it's Topps's attempt to fill the void left by the demise of Upper Deck Masterpieces. If they dump anything, I hope it's Chicle. Chicle sucks.

  3. I don't know in a perfect world on card Auto, but i'm sure it's easier to forge an auto than it is to duplicate the topps certified sticker.

    Nice looking set, but i think i'll be going with the main in 2011

  4. Seems to be alot of mixed feelings about this set all over the forums. I really like the look of it so far but obviously it will come down to the value of the box/pack.
    I think Chicle will be the product being replaced although T206 might be a strong contender.

  5. I kind of like the look. Just have to wait and see

  6. I'll definitely be chasing those on-card autos... that set looks sweet!
