First Buzz: 2016 Topps Gypsy Queen baseball cards

16_Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball-buttonautoWhat: 2016 Topps Gypsy Queen baseball cards
Arrives: April 6
Hobby box basics: 24 packs, 10 cards — two autographs, two Relics and one 10-card mini box box-topper

What’s buzz-worthy: The sixth edition of Gypsy Queen follows much of the same formula from the past releases with the same number of hits and the same mini box box-topper we have seen from past years. What’s new here this time are a few insert sets (MVP Minis, Power Alley), some parallels (MVP Minis autos, Mini Black autos) and a few other fun inclusions. Those will be Laces Around the League Relics — cards with baseball stitch swatches limited to five copies — as well as jumbo patch Relic and Ancient Era Remnants — aka buybacks from the 1920s to 1950s.
