I picked up a 2012 Gypsy Queen card of Phil Hughes on eBay recently for a mere 6 cents. Hughes is in Minnesota so the Yankee premium no longer exists. He is actually having a decent year. Why didn't he pitch like this when he was in New York? But, I digress. I rarely will pass up a Gypsy Queen card at this price. And the fact that this is a former Yankee in a Yankee uniform is icing on the cake.
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.
