2015 Topps Opening Day


Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got some good deals this weekend.  I'll put up another quick pack on the site this evening.  No one has put up a pack of Opening Day...until now!

How many more days until Opening Day 2016???
Seven cards in the pack, taken from a Target gravity-feeder box in one of those buy-a-pack-because-you-have-the-urge-to-buy-a-pack moments.  But hey, it's a buck.  Here's what I got:

Woo!  Complete borders!
#68 - Joe Mauer
#188 - Javier Baez
#152 - Ian Desmond

Same images as the flagship set, but there's no foil on the cards and you get the Opening Day logo. 

#HTD-09 - George Springer
#127 - Francisco Cervelli
#37 - Chris Archer
#129 - Angel Pagan

Hit The Dirt cards come 1 in 5 packs.

I get that photoshopping is here to stay, but how about showing the player in their old uniform on the Opening Day set?  I'm taking a guess that ol' Francisco up above was photoshopped into Pittsburgh's uniform (since the write-up on the back mentioned that he was going to be the starting catcher in 2015 and he was with the Yankees all of 2014).  Since the set's geared towards the kiddies, it would give the grown up collector a reason to buy packs, besides looking for mascot cards. 

Here's a couple of backs for you:

Well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad...
Anyway, that's the pack.  More later on.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and thanks for reading!
