I was conveniently at the Palisades Mall last week and of course stopped by Target looking to see what Gypsy Queen retail looked like. I didn’t see any blasters, and I probably wouldn’t have bought one either way. I mostly wanted to get a 3-pack Jumbo or, if that wasn’t available, a retail pack or two. I found both, so I just went with the Jumbo. Just under $10 bucks – a bit much, but I just wanted to see the retail framed paper cards. The Jumbo packs have 3 6-card retail packs inside, as well as a 3-card pack of Gold Framed Paper.
Here’s the Gold Framed Paper:
I also got a couple of SP variations in the 3 packs. That’s beating the odds, I guess. I got a straight cut mini, an SP mini (Cain #305) and an Andre Dawson mini. I now have two Dawson minis but no Dawson base card. D’oh!
I also got one each of the 2 retail only insert sets. I’m glad I got those instead of dupes of the ones available in both hobby and retail! Future Stars is the only insert set that’s back from last year.
Finally, I got 4 cards that I needed toward the base set. Funny, all 4 of these were in the last pack.
All in all, I did well. Got some cards towards what I’m collecting, so I can’t complain with buying this pack!
