The much anticipated 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball officially streets today (4/27) and overall the product looks great, but it has come to our attention that not all hobby boxes include the originally solicited 2 Autograph & 2 Relic guarantee (some contain 3 Relics & 1 Autograph).
Any customer missing an autograph from their box will be taken care of. Please mail in the box's UPC code to Topps to receive a Gypsy Queen replacement autograph card.
