Gypsy, Gypsy Green.... If You Know What I Mean

I made small but important progress on my quest to complete a 2011 Gypsy Queen Green Framed Paper set this week, one card courtesy of eBay, the other courtesy of everyone's favorite Night Owl:

I'm always a little surprised when someone gives up a card of who I assume is one of their favorite players.  I'm sure this is a double, and Night Owl has another one of these safely tucked away somewhere, but still, it was very cool to get a nice Dodger card from a Dodger fan and collector.

I also grabbed a Mickey Mantle on eBay:

I wouldn't say I got a steal on it, but it was cheaper than any others I'd seen yet so I made the purchase.

My Master Checklist now has this set ranked as my number one priority.  I only need 7 more cards, and I'm going to target this September 1 as my completion date.

Glad it arrived safely.

You shouldn't be surprised. I'm more than happy to send my Dodger dupes to anyone who needs them. If I don't, I will die in an avalanche.
