I picked up 3 Gypsy Queen cards of Ike Davis, Daniel Murphy, and Jonathon Niese on eBay. The whole lot cost me 14 cents shipped. Go figure. All three are current Mets. I am never sure whether Gypsy Queen cards feature photos, drawings, or both. Whatever the image on the front is, it’s very well done. Niese and Murphy should be OK this season if they stay healthy. The Mets are going to have a problem at first base. It’s basically a tossup between Ike Davis and Lucas Duda. Neither is a great option. Both are banged up at the moment. I would throw Josh Satin out at first base. He couldn’t do any worse.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
