2014 Gypsy Queen

This product is flying off of shelves, but I'm not entirely sure why. It plays like a poor man's Allen and Ginter. The quality is there, but it doesn't have the same vintage spark as Allen and Ginter. It does provide a good appetizer until that better set is released later in the year.

I have no general complaints about Gypsy Queen. It is a solid set, but they always are. If you've picked up some Gypsy Queen in the past, you know exactly what to expect. If you haven't liked Gypsy Queen in the past, nothing about the 2014 set will change your mind. With vintage sets, Topps seems to favor the old adage, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

The White Sox have twelve cards in the set.

78 - Marcus Semien
118 - Jose Quintana
181 - Paul Konerko
188 - Adam Eaton
216 - Andre Rienzo
221 - Matt Davidson
251 - Erik Johnson
254 - Avisail Garcia
273 - Alejandro De Aza
287 - Adam Dunn
305 - Chris Sale
320 - Jose Abreu

There are two short prints in the set, Chris Sale and Jose Abreu. It shouldn't be too difficult a task to complete a team set. The cards aren't ugly, but competently consistent.

Busted my first ever case of GQ just last week. Pulled the Chris Sale reverse image SP :) Wouldn't mind doing another case next year.
