They seem impossible to find but as they say, anything worthwhile is difficult to attain. After a week of seeing posts about 2010 Topps Gypsy Queen Blasters hitting shelves in select areas, except my own, and repeated trips to Target that turned up nothing, I finally found one. When I say one, that’s literal, I found exactly one blaster.
It was on a trip to get some cleaning stuff like Windex that I bypassed the place I always get supplies, my local supermarket, and drove an extra ten minutes to my slightly out of the way Target. With gas at $4.35 a gallon, I figured I could justify the disappointment of another fruitless search for Gypsy Queen by combining it with an errand. This way, I was defiantly walking away with something from my excursion.
I was going to head directly to the cleaning supplies isle and then casually make my way back to the cards, but decided to change that mid stream. There is was, in a see of blasters of previous release, one lone box, barley visible, a lucky find that provided to be more lucky than I could have known. As a matter of fact, this blaster wound up shattering the odds.
I’ve already posted the video of the blaster break. If you haven’t seen it, use this link to check it out.
