2020 Topps Gypsy Queen Overview
Design: Topps refreshed the design of Gypsy Queen from 2019 by moving the logo to the top left of the card, rather than the center bottom. They also rearranged the nameplate to feature the last name first with the first initial and position following as well as getting rid of the year across the top of the card.
Uniqueness: Gypsy Queen is unique as it bases it’s design off of the 1887 N174 Gypsy Queen set. It’s inserts are based on psychic’s and their ability to tell the future. The Fortune Teller minis and Tarot of the Diamond inserts crosses the supernatural with baseball.
Checklist: Each box contains two autographs, one chrome topper, four Fortune Teller Mini cards, three Tarot of the Diamond cards, and one Legend base set card. There are plenty of parallels for the base set as well:
Silver (12 Per Monster Box)
Green (Value Pack)
GQ Logo Swap
Indigo - /250
Blue - /150
Black & White - /50 (Hobby only)
Red - /10
Black - 1/1
The most quirky parallel is the Indigo/Blue parallels. Without paying close attention, you can see that they look the same. Other sets in the product include:
Extended Base (Legend)
Armed Forces Day Image Variation
Jackie Robinson Day Image Variation
The chrome box toppers are back as well. They’re more vivid than I can remember, and are show stoppers, especially the parallels:
Rookies to look out for: Bo Bichette, Adrian Morejon, Aristides Aquino, Brendan McKay, Austin Nola, AJ Puk, Luis Robert, Zac Gallen, Yordan Alvarez, Dustin May, Yu Chang, Jordan Yamamoto, Gavin Lux, Nico Hoerner, Brusdar Graterol, Mauricio Dubon, and Jesus Luzardo.
