More Sportlots: More Gypsy Queen, More HD, More Gallery of Heroes. More is Good.

I'm back with more from my recent Sportlots purchase beginning with the largest buy from a single seller - 14 cards (all from the 2001 Topps HD set) from user pamelajo.  Rather than scanning all 14 cards, I picked out my three favorites from the bunch.

My 2001 Topps HD set is now down to needing only 19 more cards.  I'm not convinced I'll actually finish this one during the 2021 year but getting 14 cards in one swoop does help me along quite a bit!

2001 Topps High Definition (HD) Wants:  11, 36, 39, 51, 96, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 111, 113, 114, 116, 117, 119, 120

Next, from user cardguy2 comes a pair of 2018 Topps Gypsy Queen needs for my set build:

The Gypsy Queen short prints don't seem to be quite as difficult to track down as Topps Heritage short prints...but I will say they are almost equally annoying to this set collector!  At least I'm now two cards closer (only one of the two was a short print here).

My next purchase was another good one - a 2013 Topps Archives Gallery of Heroes card of Ted Williams courtesy of user sdcland5.

I've been putting a real effort into completing this difficult insert set and now I'm pleased to say that I'm down to needing only three more cards.  Unfortunately, one of those three cards is Mike Trout.

2013 Topps Archives Wants:
Gallery of Heroes: 
BR.  Babe Ruth
MT.  Mike Trout
RC.  Roberto Clemente

That'll do it for today's post.  I've got a few more from this purchase to show off yet - and one more that I'm still waiting on.  Hopefully, that last package will arrive soon and then I can shut the book on this Sportlots buy...and once that's done I can go back to waiting for my COMC order from months and months ago that still hasn't shipped.  Ugh.
