Collector's Den

If your in the Indianapolis area in July you might want to swing over to Collectors Den in Castleton Square Mall. On July 16th former Purdue star and now Boston Celtic JaJuan Johnson will be signing free autographs. On July 26th, the “Hit King” will be in the house. Pete Rose will be signing from 6:30-8:30. For more info on tickets and details call 317-841-8472

I busted a box of 2011 Gypsy Queen a few weeks ago, and as most I was missing an auto. About two weeks ago I finally got around to sending in my box bottom and my info and today in the mail I received from Topps my missing auto…… Drum Roll Please……

Overall not too bad, about the same insert as series one. I like the look of these patch cards even if they are manufactured, I didn’t like the amount of doubles that popped up in the first few packs. Good cards for the set builders
