2011 Topps Gypsy Queen Bronze Framed Parallel

Year: 2011
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Gypsy Queen
Card Number: 61
Card Type: Parallel
Parallel Set: Bronze Framed
Card Attributes: Framed, Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 362/999

The color framed parallel is nothing new.  Donruss did it way back in 2004 with Diamond Kings. And Topps brought it back with Gypsy Queen in 2011.  The interesting thing is that only a portion of the set is paralleled with the framed treatment.  Robin's been featured a few years. And of course like any parallel there are levels and exclusives.  

I'm not a huge fan of gimmicks like this, but in this case it works well.  Especially for the 2011 set which mimicked the original 1887 Gypsy Queen set in design which was kind of bland.  The color and the frame add a nice, well... frame to showcase the player and make the background colors standout.
