I Finally Got My Hands On Some Gypsy Queen

I was finally able to get some today at Target. I'm still a little torn on the design of the base cards and inserts. Regardless, its been a long while since I busted any wax so I was hoping to get some nice trade bait out of the product. Here's the damage from 2 blasters and 2 value packs:

Base: A rough estimate of about 60 to 70 cards. Just send your list if you need specific cards:

Base SP's: 316 Gehrig (2), 330 Morrow

Regular Back Minis: 54 Thomas, 78 Sandberg, 84 Lincecum, 86 Fielder, 95 Sisler, 155 Dickey, 172 Zimmerman, 185 Morrison, 206 Hunter, 223 I. Rodriguez, 225 Wells, 241 Roberts, 243 Thome, 259 Huff, 283 Ankiel, 288 Wilson, 291 Young

SP Regular Back Minis: 313 Minor (claimed), 335 Freeman (claimed)

Gypsy Queen Red Back Minis: 124 Hardy, 128 Haren, 152 Maholm

Green Framed Paper: 2 Halladay, 24 Jones, 30 Ramirez, 33 Kinsler, 45 C. Gonzalez, 74 Seaver

Gypsy Queens: GQ6 Sheerah Valkrev:

And the Big Mojo Hit of the Break:

Mini Framed Relic: FMRC-RC Robinson Cano(claimed)

Why do I always pull damn Robinson Cano relic cards? I've really piled up relics of the Yankees and Red Sox the last two years!

Since I was in the Daily Dimwit's group break I was able to get a good start on my Orioles Team set. I've decided that I'm going to build the base, and regular back mini team sets. I'm also going to go for the Great Ones and Future Stars of the Orioles too (and their respective minis!). All of the regular size and mini cards makes a nice and tidy 36 card set so they will all fit nicely into (4) 9 pocket pages when all is said and done!
I've also done quite a bit of eBay and Sportlots shopping too so here is what I need to complete this little project:

Base: 334 Nick Markakis SP

Regular Back Mini: 7 Jim Palmer, 167 Cal Ripken Jr., 334 Nick Markakis SP

Great Ones: GO4 Brooks Robinson, GO6 Frank Robinson

Let me know if you have any of the cards I need or if you need to claim any cards for your teamsets or what not.


  1. I wouldn't mind that Longoria bronze border...

  2. Love the Cano. I'd be willing to take it off your hands.

  3. I'd love to have the Minor and Freeman minis. I've got some Orioles set aside for you already...

  4. I need quite a bit of what you have. Check it out at

    If I can't find stuff for you, I'll buy some trade stuff

  5. May you set aside the green framed Kinsler and the Wall Climbers Ichiro? I have some cards for your Goudey needs to send you.
