2016 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball is due out this Wednesday (April 6) and inside select boxes will be some unique and rare chase cards.
The first of these special hits are Ancient Era Remnants. These pay tribute to the inspiration behind Gypsy Queen, cigarette trading cards from the early 1900s. Topps has placed original cards from that era inside a special frame and inserted them into 2016 Gypsy Queen packs. Subjects will include athletes and celebrities plus a few surprises from the turn of the 20th century.
Topps has also created Original Art Patch cards for 2016 Gypsy Queen. These rare one-of-one hits feature original artwork of baseball greats along with a uniform patch piece. The checklist for Original Art patch cards will include Dwight “Doc” Good, Bryce harper and Mike Trout. Topps has indicated that some of these cards will be found as redemptions inside Gypsy Queen packs, but the finished products are ready to go and will be shipped out immediately once they are redeemed.
The Original Art redemptions might be the only redemption in 2016 Gypsy Queen as Topps has announced there no autograph redemptions in the product.
