Initial Announcement: 2014 Topps Gypsy Queen Half Case Break

With a new year comes new goals. As I mentioned last week, one of my goals for this new year is to host better group breaks. Well, the time has come to announce the first break:

2014 Topps Gypsy Queen Half Case Break

I will be breaking five hobby boxes of 2014 Topps Gypsy Queen when the product streets in April (the tentative street date is April 9). Some of the product highlights:
  • 2 on-card autos per box
  • 1 full-size relic card per box
  • 1 mini relic per box
For those of you that are visually stimulated like I am, here are a few images of cards from the set:

So here is how it will go down. Buy in per team is $40 (this covers cost and shipping). But wait - that gets you one team of your choosing AND one randomly assigned team!!! You will receive all cards for both of your teams from five hobby boxes. Should a card have more than one player on it, the card will go to the person who 1.) has the most teams featured on the card; 2.) has the player on the top (of a card with a top-middle-bottom alignment); 3.) has the layer on the left (of a left-middle-right alignment).

Sign-ups will be completed and payment must be received by the end of February so that I can pre-order the boxes and get the best deal possible. So don't delay - sign up today!

  1. If someone hasn't already grabbed them by the time I post this comment, put me down for the Dodgers and Yankees.. I just want to be a bitch and hopefully get some nice trade bait! haha

  2. I'll have to see the checklist before committing to the Cubs. I'm afraid they may not get much love this year in GQ or A&G after another bad season. We'll see. If someone else snags the loveable losers, then so be it. They'll make my decision easier! LOL

    I did plug your break on my blog. I can't believe we're already talking GQ!

  3. Hey Hey, Sign me up for the Phillies.. I also have my eye on one other team but I don't want to commit to it yet. If you are one short let me know and I'll pick it up!


  4. Ah, yankees and dodgers already that case lets go for the Cubs !

    1. Shoot. I shouldn't have waited. Jeroen, I hope you get every possible Rizzo from the break. (That way I don't have to compete with you on eBay. LOL)

  5. Any interest by anyone if I were to host a 6 box 2014 Heritage break, under the same format?

  6. I'd like to sign up for the Brewers if they are still available (I'm a sucker, I know!). Please let me know how to pay you. Thanks.

  7. I've waited long enough. Give me the Orioles too. I'll load up Paypal and pay for all three when your ready.
