Culturefly MLB Superstars Series 1 figure

I was at one of Targets in San Antonio when I notice this. Random MLB figure inside a ball. The figures are produced by Culturefly. There are 10 players you can get in series 1. Who's inside this mystery plastic ball?

After getting through double cellophane wrapped packaging I opened and received......
The now-former Cub Javier Baez who is now a member of New York Mets. It comes with a ball, bat, and stickers. The head, arms, and legs can move, but the hands can't which makes placing items harder. The figure can stand up on top of the ball. He looks ridiculous in the pose.
I couldn't able put the ball and the bat in the hands at same time so I put it separately.

I can hook the ball around the hand easily. The bat? Not so much. I guess it was meant for him to hold it with two hands.

Here's the checklist of the figures in series 1. I feel disappointed in the figurine already.

2021 Topps Gypsy Queen Hobby Pack

 Picked up a couple packs of Gypsy Queen from Don's Sportcards here in Anchorage, Alaska.  Basically because I wanted something to rip and this was the cheapest new product in the shop.  Here is the best pack out of the bunch.

Let's see what I got.

Overall the design isn't bad.  Actually I quite like it, but it's almost bleeding into and Allen and Ginter look.

The backs are pretty terrible, with no stats, a small blurb and teenie tiny numbers.  Have fun set collector's collating this set.
Here are the rest of the base cards.

The Pache rookie was a nice cherry on top of the pack.

I also hit one of the mini Captains cards.  Which I'm glad I did, I wanted one to add to my type collection and I'm a sucker for mini's.  Although this is bigger than tobacco sized.

2021 Topps Stadium Club Hobby Pack

 Stopped by Don's Sportcards here in Anchorage, Alaska while I was out doing other errands.  I ended up picking up a couple packs of new stuff, mainly to show off here.  First up is a pack of this year's Stadium Club.  It's a great set I just wish it wasn't so dang expensive.  

Let's see what I pulled

Hit this nice Mike Trout insert.

And that's not all.  Autos fall 1:8 packs (2 per box) and I just happened to have a lucky day at the card shop.

Not the best auto I could have hit, but hey it's a rookie on card auto so I'm not going to complain.
