2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Glove Stories’ Subset – Mike Trout
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 Mike Trout card from the set:
This play could easily be the most shown and watched highlight from the 2012 major league baseball regular season. Between the ground covered and the height at which Mike Trout leaped to secure haul in the ball, the baseball world stared in awe.
And ever since this single moment, Mike Trout has taken more and more steps to becoming the face of major league baseball and a household name.
