Brian from Play At The Plate recently held a contest and I was lucky enough to be selected the winner. He sent me a rack pack of Gypsy Queen. Not only is this a contest review but this is the first GQ I have seen this year so I get to review the set itself.
The rack pack had 3 mini packs in it and one pack of bordered cards. Here we go:
These are some really good looking cards. I got 2 Braves that are destined to be part of some Braves package and a mini Brewer to send to Alaska. There are so many Brave bloggers I am always out of Braves cards.
I have always hated the Padres camo uniforms. A year ago I would have packaged those Wilson cards right back up and sent them to Brian. Now that he is an Angel though they are destined to rot in a box in my closet cause nobody want Angel cards. At least someone may want that black bordered one.
A Kofax! If I didn't think he already had it I would mail that sucker to Night Owl cause I'm pretty sure I owe him cards but I'm sure someone already sent it to him. (I'd send him the Gordon form the last pack to but same thing) I don't like how many times Mariano shut my team down in the 9th inning over the years but I hate the way he may have to end things.
Now the bordered cards. Castro Kershaw and Bench. That means I got shut out of Red Sox. I guess so as they go on the field so goes my pack opening. (Maybe Night Owl needs this one)
Luckily Brian sent along one extra card. A bordered Lester. Finally a Red Sox. That is why I don't open many packs, I never get any Red Sox that way.
Thanks for the great contest Brian. And for throwing in that extra Red Sox card.
