Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. It can't be that common that Opening Day occurs on Easter Sunday, but it did this year, and what can be better than showing some Opening Day cards on Opening Day...with the classic APTBNL twist. Here's some 2006 Topps Opening Day!
This pack was part of the Fairfield 30-pack clear case for $15 the wifey got me oh so many years ago. Let's see what's inside:
#50 – Manny Ramirez (back)
#108 – Tim Hudson
Not a bad start to the pack. It's the same design of the 2006 base set, just with the Opening Day logo and a different color foil stamping.
#51 – Melvin Mora
#42 – Zack Greinke
#55 – Joe Mauer
Looks like the foil stamping caused the names to not come up well on the scan. Sorry about that. Then again, you're here to look at the pretty pictures and count on the poster to tell you who's who.
#28 – Nick Johnson
#25 of 25 – Chipper Jones / Marcus Guiles (Funny Photos)
Work Hard Get Cards card
Fantasy Baseball Sluggers card (not pictured)
I would rather have gotten a mascot card than the Funny Photos insert. But getting a Chipper's cool nonetheless. Oh, you want to see the back?
I'd say something witty, but Marcus won't be hearing me anyway.
Anyway, that's the pack. Here's hoping for an fun and exciting baseball season, and that the Cubs don't suck as bad as last year. More later...thanks for reading!
