I'm trying hard to pick up most of the 2017 Red Sox base cards without buying too many packs or boxes. This trade brought me a few star base cards from 2017 Gypsy Queen. It is not a lot, but each of these players made a big impact in 2016.
1. 2017 Topps Gypsy Queen Rick Porcello. Of course Porcello probably made the biggest impact as he led the league in wins and won the Cy Young Award. I never get tired of saying that. He was Boston's first Cy Young winner since 2000.
2. 2017 Topps Gypsy Queen Hanley Ramirez. Ramirez went on a tear in the second half and ended up hitting 30 home runs with more than 100 RBIs. He will be counted on to be the big power hitter in the lineup in 2017. Unfortunately he has been dealing with the flu so far, like a lot of other players.
3. 2017 Topps Gypsy Queen Xander Bogaerts. Bogaerts won the Silver Slugger Award and appeared in his first All Star game. He looks ready to take the next step and become a big star this season.
