Million Dollar Question – Is The Discolored 2014 Gypsy Queen Border Bothering You?
There is no modern baseball card release that I look forward to more than that of Gypsy Queen. For me, the set offers a great blend of legend and modern players on the checklist and I also find the GQ inserts and subsets to be among the best around.
I also really like the style of the cards and the interesting tweaks that Topps employs to make each version different yet keeping them similar enough so we know that the cards are all from the same brand.
This year however, I noticed that some of the coloring of the card’s borders was off. Some looked more Yellow while others looked more like a Creme color. And when I unveiled my recent box break results from this product, it was also mentioned by reader Matt.
And it is really starting to bother me, and I am just building a team set, not the full 350-card set.
Here are two Miami Marlins cards that I pulled that will be part of my team set:
See how the one on the left is bolder and more Yellow in color while the one on the right is more faded and less vibrant?
Kind of sucks doesn’t it. And I am not sure what I intend to do about it… Do I go after both the Yellow team set and the Creme team set? Or do I just forget about it and be happy with what I can find?
Give me your thoughts. Are you also irked by the differing border colors from this product?
