2015 Topps Gypsy Queen Mets baseball cards

Topps Gypsy Queen came out in April, but I’m just getting around to looking at the Mets cards in it now. (Thank you, Stubby, for sending along most of the team set.)

Gypsy Queen is one of several retro products on the Topps release calendar. The cards are based on 19th century tobacco cards, but they use modern photos that have been run through a few too many filters.

I still need to track down two short prints and one insert to complete my team set, but here are the rest of them.
