2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Glove Stories’ Subset – Gregor Blanco

2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Glove Stories’ Subset – Gregor Blanco

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 Gregor Blanco card from the set:

Nice grab, Gregor!!!

He may not be a household name, but if Blanco keeps making plays like this, he will certainly be found in more highlights!!

The catch that is featured on this ‘Glove Stories’ card happened in the 7th inning of what eventually became Matt Cain’s perfect game.  Blanco made a leaping dive deep in the outfield that turned out to be the defensive gem of the game which preserved the win for the Giants and history for Cain.
