Opening Day fills an interesting role within the hobby. It’s never been about the big hit or the hot rookie. Instead, it focuses on fun inserts and a reasonable price point. There are hits in the product, but you are not guaranteed one in a box. You chase cards of the mascots and team celebrations, rather than the next big thing.
The release doesn’t really get the attention it deserves. It’s not flashy, but it offers a nice alternative to the other pricey releases. The cards feature the same design as the flagship release, but include an Opening Day logo and different pictures.
A box advertises 36 packs with 7 cards per pack. There are no guaranteed hits.
This box contained:
213 Base (173 different of 200 – 86.5%)
3 Base Blue Foil Parallel
5 Opening Day Scenes
4 Team Traditions & Celebrations
18 150 Years of Fun
