A Matt Kemp "Jackie Robinson" 1/1 Gypsy Queen Printing Plate.

I'm snatching up Matt Kemp cardboard as best I can while he heals from his hamstring injury and continues to work his way back from the serious shoulder injury he suffered last season. I have not and never will forgive the Dodgers for allowing him to play through it, thus exacerbating it. Anyhoo, the latest deal I was able to secure is of the truly unique and one-of-a-kind variety.

OH. SNAP. So much to cover here. First, it's a 1/1 Magenta Plate. Second, it's from 2013 Gypsy Queen, and I'm a sucker for vintage-themed sets. Third and most important: Kemp is wearing number 42, which means the photo Topps chose was taken on Jackie Robinson Day. With it being a 2013 card, the photo comes from April 15th, 2012. Kemp reached base in four of his five plate appearances that day, clubbing a solo homer to go along with two singles and a walk. Just a fantastic card all-around and one I couldn't let pass by my Bison Collection without ensuring it made the most permanent of stops.
