When Topps revived the Gypsy Queen brand in 2011, they introduced collectors to the Original Art Patch Card. These are by far some of the nicest looking modern day cards. I always enjoy hand-drawn cards the most, and these come with a multi-colored patch. Its definitely not something you see done all the time. Maybe once a year at the most.
With 2016 Gypsy Queen releasing on 4/6, I’d like to show you all (37) Original Art Patch Cards that you’ll have the chance to pull. Every single card was drawn by sports artist Monty Sheldon. They look great! Monty has really outdone himself this time. Any of these cards could easily be considered the centerpiece of someone’s collection. Each card is a one-of-one, and is incredibly difficult to pull. Congrats to anyone that gets one.
According to Topps, many of these masterpieces have been shipped out within the product. A few of them might come as a redemption. Either way it doesn’t really matter. Topps has them already, and are ready to ship. They shouldn’t take long to arrive.
The checklist this year includes top guys like Ken Griffey, Jr., Mike Trout, Kris Bryant, and Maikel Franco. Click on each image for a closer look.
