2018 Topps Opening Day

Once a Cub bought a case of 2018 Topps Opening Day and started a blog with the same name. He's taking an extremely detailed look at the entire set; card by card. You've got to check it out! I wish there was a blog like this for every set out there.

When I saw that he had announced the blog I quickly followed it and because I was the first follower he rewarded me with a complete set and a bunch of other sweet D-Backs cards! Thank you very much Matt!

I put the Opening Day set in sheets this morning, but I scanned the last card in the base set. It's of some rookie for the Angels. 

I work across the street from Tempe Diablo Stadium and it was crazy to see the amount of media and autograph seekers outside each day.

Check out a small sampling of the rest of what he sent.

This was one of my favorites. It's from 2018 Opening Day, but the photo and the write-up on the back are all about 2017 Opening Day, which my family and I attended.

This next card is blue Wal-Mart parallel from 2013 Topps. I wish I had been at this game. Pollock appears to be scoring the winning run against the Dodgers.

This is one of those thick and heavy medallions for Justin Upton. 

There was lots more, but I'm going to show off the Goldschmidt cards he sent.


  1. What a nice haul. I love those manufactured relic things

  2. Thanks for the early support of the new blog! And I'm glad you needed at least some of the D-Backs.

    I think the Opening Day card autographed by the starting lineup is the next project once you finish up the first night game at Wrigley project. Would look nice signed across the scoreboard/sky. Just saying... :)

  3. Cool Ohtani. I have a feeling that's the one I'll end up grabbing for my collection eventually.
