Opening Day is 165 days away but if you can’t wait that long, you can pick up Opening Day — from Topps – on March 7.
The company unveiled the newest installment of the low-priced baseball card offering on Friday, a product that will include 220 cards in the base set, an insert card in every pack and more.
Ten autograph signers appear on the preliminary checklist — Neftali Feliz, Jon Niese, Tyler Colvin, Brett Anderson, Daniel Bard, Alcides Escobar, Travis Wood, Chris Heisey, Mitch Moreland and Jon Jay — while insert sets will include the likes of Bernie Brewer.
Each card will have an Opening Day parallel card numbered to 2012 copies, while all cards also will have four printing plates to chase.
Other insert sets include Opening Day Stars (25 cards), Dream Team (30 cards), Superstar Celebrations (30), Mascots (30) and Elite Skills (30).
Each box will contain 36 packs of seven cards with a suggested retail price of 99 cents.
