2014 Gypsy Queen Cubs

Super casebreaker Brentandbecca again provided super service and the 2014 Gypsy Queen Cubs are in hand.

Eight Cubs were on the checklist and all were on the base list.  No shortprints for me!

Two of the eight were Cubs from the past...


....Mr. Cub and Fergie.  From the four years of Gypsy Queen, Ernie has been in three of the four while Fergie makes his second appearance as a Cub.  I've got no quibbles with either of these two being included, but I still wonder why Ron Santo has never been in this or pretty much any Topps product from the last four years.

Of the six active Cubs, one is a real head-scratcher...

....Kyuji Fugikawa.  He pitched in only 12 games last year before blowing out his elbow.  He has yet to return to the majors.  Yet somehow Topps saw fit to make him part of the set.  They must really have a strong customer base in Japan because I don't see too many America card buyers rushing in to swoop up his cards.

The rest of the Cubs in the set are whom you would expect...


..Starlin Castro, Junior Lake, Anthony Rizzo, Jeff Samardzija, and Travis Wood.

Four years worth of Gypsy Queen are enough for a tile, so here you go....the entire Cubs run of Gypsy Queen from 2011 - 2014
