Perhaps buoyed by the success of its T206 and Allen & Ginter lines, Topps is again stepping into brand names of the past. The company plans to trot out yet another new product line next April with the release of 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen baseball.
Topps plans 24-count boxes with 18 insert cards per box including two autograph and two relic cards per box. There will be seven base cards and three parallel cards per pack.
The base set will consist of 450 cards of veterans, retired players and rookies including 50 short-printed variations.
The usual assortment of parallel and mini parallel cards will be in the product as well as dual and triple auto relic cards.
Dealer cost is about $80 per box.
In 2009, Upper Deck used the 'Gypsy Queen' name for its Goodwin's Champions set. Topps also used the Gypsy Queen name in Walmart exclusive cards in 2007.
