Sheldon Showcases His Art/Patch Cards For 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen

In less than a month, the 2013 baseball season will be here.  Teams are already in the middle of spring training hoping that this is the year they make it to the World Series.  One of the first products due to be released early in the season is 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen.  Gypsy Queen is returning for a third year as it seems to be popular with many set collectors.  Among all the variations, parallels, autographs, and gimmicks that drive collectors nuts, is what I consider to be some of the nicest looking modern day cards produced – the art/patch relics each numbered to 1.

Sports artist Monty Sheldon is one of the faces behind these 2.5″x3.5″ 1/1 masterpieces which each contain a multicolored swatch.  Sheldon made 25 of these for Gypsy Queen this year, and if the past is any indication, they will most likely command major dollars on the secondary market.  Just look at what his David Wright art/patch card from 2011 recently sold for.

With the release of Gypsy Queen right around the corner, Monty sent over some scans of the cards that he did for this year’s set.  These are by far some of the most difficult cards to pull.
