A few days ago, July 5th to be exact, I celebrated my 22nd birthday on a Delta flight back to Detroit. My girlfriend had no idea what to get me. There were a few ideas and in the end I wanted some baseball cards and a new Seattle cap since the one I wear all the time is getting worn out.
On our way passing through target to get her niece a present she picked me up several packs of cards, a few packs of Gypsy Queen and series 2 Topps.
The first pack of Gypsy Queen yielded 5 cards. I didn't even get a damn mini. There were 2 Twins, a Ranger, and the highlights were:
Pack 2 was much better and made up for pack 1. Here are some of the cards I snagged.
It was nice to finally open some series 2 packs. Money has been limited this summer so I've held off picking up any cards for the last few months.
Finally what you all probably came to check out....
I'm glad it wasn't Gio Gonzalez like it seems every one else is pulling. Bautista has got a pretty decent looking signature, not too cramped and pretty loopy. I'll listen to offers on this card and I'm contemplating on having it graded especially if he legitimately breaks Maris's record.
