2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Glove Stories’ Subset – Coco Crisp
Topps’ Gypsy Queen brand offers up some pretty sweet 10-card subsets that feature intense action.
One of my favorite parts about the GQ subsets is that they don’t simply throw in the top players – they truly find incredible images regardless of the player’s star power. What this does is introduce us to other talents that perform at high levels while also allowing for players that are not always in the spotlight a chance to shine for a bit.
The ‘Glove Stories’ set primarily features outfielders with 8 cards, and has 2 infielder cards as well.
This is the Coco Crisp card from the set:
Are you kidding me?? Look at the elevation Crisp got on this leap!!
And when the drama-factor is tossed into the equation, even better. This catch ended up being a game-saver. The ball would have been a 3-run homer hit off of the bat of Detroit’s Prince Fielder. Instead, it was an out – and it preserved victory for the A’s.
