The Cubs 2015 Gypsy Queen Inserts

There are five insert sets in this year's Gypsy Queen that could have included a Cub.  They only made it into one of the five.

Walk-Off Cubs... I suppose you need to win some games to get a walk-off winner
Glove Cubs... Their only recent Gold Glove winner in now a Dodger, an Oklahoma City Dodger
Pillars of the Cubs... Anthony Rizzo, who does some great work with his foundation, would have been an appropriate addition to the checklist.
Laces Around the Cubs.... these are mostly the big names.  Kris Bryant next year?
The Queen's Throwbacks..TWO CUBS!!!  The Cubs wore throwbacks almost a dozen times last year, so there's no way to keep them out of this set.


But my, those are some ugly looking cards!

The Castro picture is from June 13 when the Phillies and Cubs threw back to 1964.

Rizzo is in the Chi-Fed uniform that the Cubs wore on Wrigley Field's 100th birthday, April 23, 2014.

The color pictures look awesome.

The monochrome Gypsy Queen cards do not look awesome.


  1. You are correct. They do NOT look awesome.
    I think I'll stay away from GQ this year and hope some Cubs trickle in with trade packages.

  2. I like "the queen's throwback" cards quite a bit, but like you, not many Padres represented outside of the base. Admittedly, the "throwbacks" can't hold a candle to the photographs you shared (nice research!). I built up GQ sets for a number of years, like A&G, but now I just focus on Padres and various but more specific PCs.
