It’s charity case break time once again at Crackin’ Wax and this time around I’ll be tearing into my first ever case of Topps Gypsy Queen! As usual, I will give $5 to charity for every team slot sold.

Gypsy Queen has been a popular set since Topps started producing their version of the set back in 2011 and tends to serve as a nice appetizer to the mid-summer beast, Allen & Ginter’s. Much like that set, GQ is retro-styled with plenty to chase, especially for those mini-card collectors out there.

This year, Topps is upping the ante with new hits including Clear and Graphite Minis. Dual and Triple Button cards also make their debuts with 2014 Gypsy Queen. One of the newest hits that I’m most excited for and really hope I’m able to pull in this case is the Around the Horn Autograph Pop-Up Book cards.

Of course, all the standard hits we’ve all come to know and love will also be included, such as autographs, relics and printing plates. Topps is also throwing Insert Plates into the mix this year.

Each case of 2014 Gypsy Queen contains 10 hobby boxes. Each hobby box is composed of 24 packs with approximately 10 cards per pack, one 10-card mini box, two autograph cards, and two relic cards. That’s an approximate total of 2,500 cards—100 of which are minis and 40 (yes, 40) of which are hits!

Topps has scheduled this product for release on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 and I will be hosting the charity break the following Wednesday, April 16. I will be determining actual slot prices once Topps releases the full checklist (which has trended towards a day or two before release day), however I do know that the average slot price is around $65. Until then, I am currently allowing you to lock in your slot for a non-refundable fee of $20! I will send an invoice for final payment to you after I have finalized pricing.

Your slot price not only covers the cost of your cards, it also covers shipping, handling, supplies, and your $5 donation! Not only that, you’ll also get invited to my Private Break at the end of the year. You’ll also get a discount of $5 for that Private Break—in fact, you get a $5 discount for each Crackin’ Wax charity case break you join in 2014!
