*warm weather, baseball is underway, and cup of coffee. Does life get any better? Well, it does when the football season kicks off for me. But, this is definitely 1B*
I have never been to Opening Day in my life and have only been to a ballpark four times. But, it doesn't mean I don't celebrate opening day from home the way that most would at the ballpark.
Grilled hot dogs were the agenda for Opening Day this year. I don't know about you, but you have to darken them up a little to fully bring out their full flavor.
And before you ask, I didn't eat all of these to myself :)
Another thing I like to do around Opening Day is to open some Opening Day. Yes, this product isn't for the flippers, but it's for fun. Remember those days??
I didn't find any retail but am glad to at least have this chance to open some hobby.
*takes a sip, begins to rip*
Every hobby box of 2021 Topps Opening Day has 36 packs of 7 cards. Boxes are a little steep this year, once again like every product is, falling at $60 on average. But, it depends where you buy it I suppose. Boxes have no guarantees either.
*takes a sip before digging more into the product*
The base set is built up of 220 cards using the Series 1 design.
This is a great photo.
These are a bit hairy....I mean great as well.
There are some of the top rookies to be had as well and I was impressed to find them all. Though my Bohm sadly had an iffy corner.
*takes another sip, moves onto parallels*
Only two parallels to be found in Opening Day but they are stunners in Blue Foil OD Edition and Opening Day 1-of-1. I absolutely love these blue parallels that put every parallel in Series 1 to shame. They fall 1:9 packs.
*now onto the inserts*
Mascots fall 1:3 packs. Even though these are in here every year, I never get tired of seeing them.
Legends Of Baseball fall 1:3 packs as well.
Opening Day falls 1:5 packs.
Outstanding Opening Day falls 1:8 packs
And my final insert..
At first what I thought was a subset card, turns out to be a Walk This Way insert that falls 1:321 packs!
Not a bad pull!
Usually I am all done with this review but for the first time ever in any Opening Day break I have had...I found a HIT!
Falling at 1:810 packs is Major League Momentos. This one I landed is of Joey Bart.
*takes a sip before finishing up this post and break*
Opening Day was fun. That's really what the product has always been about for both kids and kid adults. I do wish they would bring back the Ballpark foods insert, I really liked those. Maybe I can send in a suggestion or simply send a picture of my hotdog stack and try to get myself into the set. What do you guys think?
*time to get on with the day, Coffee Card blogger out*
