Like most collectors, I browse eBay from time to time looking for some good deals. I came across a seller who does a lot of case breaks of Topps products. I recalled the seller's name from Twitter and remember reading nothing but good things about him. I am almost sure most of you have done business with Brent before and I have to agree with everyone's comments about him.
I decided to give Brent a try for the 2015 Topps Gypsy Queen release. I
enjoyed this release and like the design and look of the cards.
I think the Mets have some pretty good looking cards in this set, too.
The Mets have some pretty good looking inserts, too. I think I like the Lenny Dykstra the best. The Queen's Throwbacks is an interesting card, too. Curtis Granderson is shown wearing a throwback jersey from a 2014 game against the Pirates. The jersey says "Royal Giants" and would actually foreshadow (coincidentally, of course) the 2014 World Series match-up between the Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants.
I also decided to try some of Brent's single card auctions and picked up an auto and relic card. Overall, I have to say this was a great experience just purchasing the team's master set and along with a hit card or two. It does take a little bit out of the chase of completing a set, but I still have plenty of sets to complete. Doing things the easy way is sometimes the way to go.
