2017 Gypsy Queen Cubs

I haven't read too much on the blogs about this year's Gypsy Queen.  Are people getting tired of it?  I'm ambivalent about it, but my collector's OCD means I will get the Cubs set.

I did.

There are 320 cards in the set, including 20 of the dreaded and contrived short-prints.  The Cubs landed nine players on the list.  That is a low number of Cubs compared to other brands.  Schwarber was missing, as was Baez, Contreras, and Heyward.

Included would be all the others you'd expect...Arrieta, Bryant, Hendricks, Lester, Rizzo, Russell, and Zobrist.  Also included was newcomer Wade Davis, in a photoshop special.





Gypsy Queen also includes some retired players and there was one Cub...




  1. I haven't been wowed by a set in a while and I'm slowly coming around to your ways of just picking up the team sets and being done with it. Not a big fan of the filters here.

    And how hard is it to come up with a 25-man team set for the World Series roster?? The special edition sets couldn't even do that...

  2. Y'know I'd like just even a set with the typical 8 starters, and the starter rotation. Who'd think that we'd want a FULL team set of guys who make up the team.
