2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball Variations Gallery, Checklist

Share:

2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball Variations are your garden-variety photo swaps. Keeping with the product’s simple roots, you shouldn’t need to worry about (intentional) spelling mistakes, wrong photos or other tough-to-spot differences. Rather, keep an eye on the image.

2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball Variations Header

Similar to the basic variations in the main 2016 Topps Baseball set, the variations emphasize fun. There’s no single thread that runs throughout them other than being compelling photos. That might make it a little more complicated if you don’t know exactly what to look for (we’ve got you covered), but there isn’t much to it.

Don’t count on the fine print on the back for clues, though. Like 2016 Topps Heritage, the codes are the same for both the base cards and the 2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball Variations. You’ve got the photos in Opening Day and that’s it.

    Geez, even the freaking kids set has short printed variations?!?!? Isn’t that kinda the opposite of what Topps is supposed to be doing with their kid friendly sets?

    Hello’ Jason I agree with you but, as you well know the “Kids Hobby” is so much different now compared to what it was 30+ years ago. Even “Topps Opening Day” has to stay in line with its base Topps issue. I have most of these I pulled 2 from a case and had to buy the others via eBay or at shows. In my opinion, these are truly some of the rarest cards in today’s hobby. Topps has made building a “Master Set” very hard, and that is as it should be. A master set is hard to build due to having chase every variation of each player or team card. These rookies are amazing because they will hold a value as to base rookies tend to drop after the release of higher ended sets, such as Topps Tribute or Topps Inception. I have always collected Topps Baseball/Football sets and I try to always build “Master Sets” because its fun to hunt these very rare cards down. I have been working on both this “Opening Day Master Set” and its standard “Topps Master Set” Take Care to anyone reading this comments section I am CO-Owner of The House Of Cards 661-421-3547 my name is Shane Adams I broker anything sports cards, if you want it I can find it for a low fee.
