3 Pack Break: 2010 Topps Opening Day Baseball

First, lets study the subtle differences behind the base set (on left) and Opening Day (on right). As you can see, the only major difference is the lack of foil and the Opening Day logo. Unlike previous Opening Day releases, the borders are the same color. That's one thing I didn't like.


Here's some more of the base cards.

3 packs worth of inserts. The Rolen is Opening Day's version of Topps Gold and are also numbered to 2010. That and the addition of unique Topps Attax inserts into this years set are a couple of big pluses.

The day that I bought these packs I realized that there was no 2009 Opening Day set! Since they skipped last year, I think they should have started fresh with what they're trying to do here, appeal to the kids. Maybe release a set of Topps MLB Marbles.. or Topps MLB Bicycle Spoke Cards. Topps SD Chip Cards?

Oh yeah, the Teixeira code is there for whoever wants it.


Future pack breaks:
  • 2001 Topps Archives Reserve
  • 2007-08 Fleer Ultra Basketball x2
  • 2008 Upper Deck SP Baseball x3
  • 2010 Topps Attax Baseball x2
Feel free to let me know which one you'd like to see next.

In 2008 Topps opening day came after series one so all the team changes came in series and new photo of the Tampa Bay (Devil) Rays cards. In 2008 OD set Topps used photos that would not show the Devil Ray logo.

I believe topps did a great job this year with both the Regular set, and the new Topps Attax Game. I hope they support the Attax game into the future and that it is not a one-year-wonder.
