The K King of Gypsy Queen.

Free money makes a man do crazy things. Leaning towards high-end goodies is one of those things that found money does to me on the regular. The two cards on display today illustrate that point marvelously. I sold a phone for my father and had some of the proceeds left when the below beaut popped up.


I wasn't going to let it get away. On-card, a vintage-themed set, and a nice action shot of Kid K make this baby a classic and a winner. It's my 21st cardboard Kershaw John Hancock. The seller offered combined shipping and one card stood out as worthy of such a deal.


Numbered 07/25, it's a gold parallel bat relic of The Bison from 2011 Panini Playoff Prime Cuts. This is just the fourth bat relic of Matty that I own, and it dawned on my that my collection is lacking in that department. Once again, I'm a sucker for vintage-themed and old-timey sets.

Awesome Kershaw, but what's up with Kemp in that photo? Couldn't they have airbrushed a smile onto him?

Dutch- Thanks! GQ Autos are indeed fantastic.

Dennis- Those unlicensed sets seem to so often go with the serious look.

Arno- Gracias!

Dude, I love those Gypsy Queen autos. I already have the Starlin Castro, now I just need me a Ryno.

Vintage-themed and on-card autos can't be beat!
