When you turn the card and you see a big mess
I bought my first ever Gypsy Queen box!
Not many cards because there are only 8 packs (7 + 1...Topps people like to do math).
Which means I'll get the announced 48 cards if I get 6 per pack meaning no hit or it would make me get less cards.
I didn't get any hit if you are wondering.
But since I'm happy with...well...simply getting cards I don't mind not getting autos or relic cards.
And since I got some players I collect and a few inserts and some of them are combos, like this Jeter card (insert + great moment/photo + Jeter + Yankees) I was happy with my luck.
And look! I even got this beauty numbered blue framed Robinson!
My happiness was right there! Way up high!...
Until I turned the card and saw it was damaged.
The one and only...was damaged!
The box was wrapped all right and the packs were all good.
But *the* card was damaged...
I suppose it was damaged while being inserted in the pack tracking back to Topps auto-insert-cards-machine.
It's a shame but I think I'll treasure it even more.
Damaged cards deserve all our love and even more than the mint cards.
All in all...It was a good first approach at buying GQ cards. The couple of them I possessed until now were all from trades. I'm liking the set a bit more. Still prefer A&G but GQ might come right at 2nd place.
