Finally, My 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Wall Climbers’ Subset Is Complete!!!

Yessir, I have completed the 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen Wall Climbers’ subset and it is a sweet looking set of cards.

The action images that Topps captured for this set really is exceptional.  And while I did not know it when I first considered collecting this set, the cards included in the set actually celebrate the ‘Wall Climbing’ that occurred during the 2010 baseball season that gave us these stellar images.  And the card backs, help tell the story as well – depicting the scene and providing the details of the occasion.

The set is ten cards deep – and as I mentioned before, it is action-packed!

Have a look:

I told you it was sweet.

Among the players included in the set are rookies, all-stars, MVPs, and legends.  And the player mix just goes to show you that at any time, an outfielder can become a ‘Wall Climber’ and put his stamp on any game.

What a fantastic addition to my subset collection – This one is GREAT!!!!

MICHAEL BRANTLEY

If you’re not living in Cleveland, or are not a transplanted Indians fan living in another part of the country, you may not know the name Michael Brantley.

But, he is one of the best defensive outfielders in baseball!!

He is extremely quick and uses his speed to get to balls that would drop for his against other outfielders.  Upon entering the league at the age of 22 in 2009, he immediately made his presence known by committing just one error in his first 26 games as a big legauer while compiling a .983 fielding percentage as a rookie.  From 2009-2012, Brantely played in 355 games and has committed just 7 errors.
