REVIEW: 2017 Topps Gypsy Queen lowers price (Release date: March 29)

2017 Topps Gypsy Queen is back at it again with their latest release of the throwback designs to the early days (1900s era) of baseball cards, but with some big changes.
Lower Price
The first thing that collectors will notice is that the price tag is lower by approximately $20 compared to last year’s release. While that is nice news for fans of the product, to achieve the lower price tag, Topps made moves to simplify and streamline this year’s product.
What’s Different
The most notable change is that relic cards (especially non-auto) have been almost eliminated from the set list. In 2016, each hobby box contained 2 autos and 2 relics. In 2017, a hobby box will contain only the two autos.

REVIEW: 2017 Donruss Baseball (release date: March 8)

Those looking for alternatives to the Topps brand can look forward to the release of Panini America’s 2017 Donruss Baseball hobby box tomorrow.
Any nostalgic collector would appreciate the throwback look of the cards, which stay true to the Donruss brand, especially the Rated Rookies and Diamond Kings subset.
