Hope everyone is doing well. The boys are on spring break next week, so I'll be job hunting while making sure they eat when they're supposed to (they'll be too busy with TV and video games).
Opening Day started in Japan a couple of days ago, ending with Ichiro riding off into the sunset
. Opening Day state-side starts next Thursday. Topps Opening Day dropped back on March 13th. I'm slow...here's my first pack:
There's 7 cards in a pack for a dollar, so the price for Opening Day didn't change like Flagship. 200 cards in the set; here's the checklist
for those interested. Here's what I got:
#90 - Jamie Barria
#198 - Aaron Nola
Too bad Topps doesn't use a different color border for Opening Day like they did for prior years. Losing the foil and adding the Opening Day logo doesn't really do enough to differentiate the sets.
#33 - Mookie Betts
#M-24 - Mascot
The difference are the inserts, I guess. Mascots return! They come 1 in 4 packs. I didn't know the Oriole Bird can play the violin!
#100 - Shohei Ohtani
#88 - Justus Sheffield
#64 - Tim Beckham
Justus is shown with his new team, an obvious photoshop job. He's listed with the Yankees in Series 1. Here are the backs because Mascots:
Anyway, that's the pack. I also picked up a rack pack so I'll show that off eventually, unless someone beats me to it. Have a good weekend, and thanks for reading!
