2013 Panini Cooperstown Colgan's Disc

Card Manufacturer: Panini
Card Set: Cooperstown
Year: 2013
Card Number: NNO
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Colgan's Discs

One of the cool inserts in this year's Panini Cooperstown set is the Colgan's discs. A nod to the original Colgan's Chips discs that were produced from 1909 - 1913.  These are found one per pack and Panini has produced a huge 165 disc set.

2013 Panini Cooperstown

Panini's second year of putting out the Coopertown themed set and the second year that Mr. Yount gets a base card. He also as at least one insert in the set and I do believe he might have an auto in the set as well.  
Here we have the base and the green crystal shard parallel (unnumbered)
There are also blue, red, gold, matrix (all numbered), and the 1/1 black crystal shard parallels

I like the design this year. I'm not incredibly fond of the head shot, but it's a nice looking card even without the logos and the crystal shard parallels are pretty in hand.

2013 Gypsy Queen Mini Framed Relic

Card Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: Gypsy Queen
Year: 2013
Card Number: GQMR-RY
Card Type: Insert Relic
Insert Set: Mini Framed Relics
Relic Type: Bat

I had to wait a long time before I got to pick up my 2012 Gypsy Queen Yount bat relic, but this year I snagged one early and for a decent price. 

I really like the black border this year on the cards and the fact that the image used is different then the ones used on his other cards in this set.  However this is another recycled image by Topps. With just a quick look through some of his issued cards over the last couple of years this is the same image used in his 2012 Golden Giveaway card and I sure it was used else where. But that's another blog post for another time.

2013 Gypsy Queens

Catching up on some summer acquisitions.  This year Robin had another card in Gypsy Queen. From early checklists I thought he would also have framed parallels, but it looks like that didn't happen.

He did however have all the mini parallels and a mini variation.

Here's the parallel. These were found in the little mini boxes that came with each hobby box. This was actually the image they used for his framed mini relic last year.
The Green numbered to 99.

And the black numbered to 199.

The only other mini parallel I'm missing besides the printing plates is the sepia.
