Checklist Chipaway: 2011 Gypsy Queen Green Border
I’m happy to say I won’t be ending my blog without at least one really good set realizing completion.
With this Stan Musial card, I’ve wrapped up the 100 card parallel Green Paper Frame set from 2011 Gypsy Queen. There’s a lot I love about this set: The checklist is chock full of great names, the pictures are beautiful, and I like the design of the card and the feel of the green paper border.
I also like that these were only available in retail rack packs, and there were 3 cards per pack. So a fella would have to open at least 34 rack packs (at $10 a pack mind you) and hope for no doubles to build one of these sets. Of course, that’s not how I built this set, but I like to think about things like that.
I didn’t collect the minis or relics/autos from 2011 GQ, but got everything else. It makes a really nice binder to look through in its completed form.
