A Closer Look At The Gypsy Queen Inserts

I've recently noticed that when it comes to new sets, I've basically become an insert set collector.  The Gypsy Queen set [you can find a pack rip over on A Pack To Be Named Later] has some nice looking inserts and I thought I would give everyone a closer look at some of them.

Let's begin with Home Run Heroes...There are 25 cards in this set with a mixture of past and current players.  There are of course the standard spots for the likes of Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle but also has some players that you wouldn't expect like Andruw Jones and Troy Glaus.

#HH16 Andre Dawson

The Wall Climbers set has 10 cards including Ichiro and this nice looking Denard Span.

#WC4 Denard Span
I think I'm going to try to collect this set for sure.  This one has 25 cards of all retired players, including Robin Yount and Rollie Fingers [please be in a Brewers uniform, please be in a Brewers uniform].

#GO11 Johnny Mize
The future of card collecting is here folks...Stephen Strasburg, Jayson Heyward, Aroldis Chapman...although it's pretty safe to say David Price and Phil Hughes might be considered stars already.

What the Wall Climbers set was for outfielders, the Sticky Fingers set is for everybody else...if Topps tells me these players are good at defense I won't question that.

I've got your Rollie right here.
And, he's in a brewers uniform.
Bottom left corner is dinged though.

I seem to recall not being all that impressed with Gypsy Queen when I first saw previews for it, but some of these look pretty nice so maybe I should give it another look. Definitely love "Wall Climbers" as a concept for an insert set!
