2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball Checklist Puts Fun First

Share:

Jump directly to the 2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball checklist and team set lists.

2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball is about being affordable. It’s about not have to spending hundreds of dollars to build a base set. It’s part of a brand where mascots rule. Most of all, it’s a product that stresses fun.

2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball

This is a set that is easy for kids to collect. It’s also one that other collectors who are not really into the modern high-end scene can dig into. And while autographs and memorabilia cards are in 2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball, they’re clearly not the focal point and come with no box guarantees.

Base Set

The 2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball base set has 200 cards. Standard to the brand, the design is virtually identical to the year’s flagship release only with the MLB Opening Day logo added to the front. More than a third of the checklist consists of players who appear in 2018 Topps Series 2, offering a preview of sorts.

Base cards have a few styles of parallels: Opening Day Edition (/2018), Opening Day 1/1 Edition (1/1) and Printing Plates.

Variation short prints also return. According to Topps, more than 25 players have cards with alternate photos on the front. These have become standard for the line over the past few years.

Inserts

Every pack of 2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball comes with an insert. Many of these dig into ceremonies and events found at MLB ballparks. Taken on their own, they offer some fun themes and photography. Put them together and they offer a deeper insight into the sport, something that might help a young fan learn about the game and its stars.

Opening Day inserts return, this time highlighting moments from the first games of the 2017 season. Before Opening Day is a new insert that offers images from Spring Training.

Scenes from around the stadiums are captured in National Anthem, Team Traditions & Celebrations, and Stadium Signatures, which show players interacting with fans and signing autographs.

Dugout Peeks are another new insert. These have players having fun and chilling on the bench between plays.

Opening Day Stars Stickers offer up something that can be stuck to books, bedposts and fridges (and maybe even the back of the occasional street sign).

Of course, Mascots return in 2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball.

Autographs and Memorabilia Cards

Yes, you can find autographs and relics in 2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball. But be warned that they’re tough pulls. While most modern products promise hits on a per-box or even per-pack basis, this isn’t one of them. They’re best regarded here as a bonus of sorts.

2018 Topps Opening Day Baseball Opening Day Autographs

Opening Day Autographs and Opening Day Relics are self explanatory, delivering the autographs and pieces of game-used gear.

Diamond Relics come with bits of stadium dirt embedded in them.

    Gee I wonder if there will be an hoskins auto??
    Or do have to wait till 2019? :P topps!

    It’s funny that you’re pushing this as “cheap and easy to collect” when there will be at least 25 photo variations in the set. Do we not consider variations a part of the “base set” anymore? Last year I bought a box of OD and didn’t get one photo variation, and only 3/4 of the set and a ton of doubles. Since online trading has dwindled I had trouble offloading the doubles and finding my needs. Maybe I’m just too old and jaded and remember when 15 card packs cost a quarter and there was no such thing as intentional short printing, but referring to any set that comes out nowadays as cheap and easy to collect just made me laugh.

    Also, the release date should be March 14, 2018.

    • Ryan Cracknell 6 October, 2017 at 12:37

      @Fred — It depends on how you collect. I’d say the vast majority aren’t chasing everything. That goes for any product. As for variations, people look at them differently. Some consider them essential to a full base set but I think most do not. They treat them more as inserts.

  3. George Bardos 22 February, 2018 at 19:09

    These Topps sets of only 700 cards doesn’t make any sense. You cannot field a 25 man roster with these cards. There are 30 MLB teams which gives each team only 22 cards. Some teams get even lower amout of cards. Why doesn’t Topps come out with Rookie sets to compensate the difference. A lot of rookies make the 25 man MLB rosters. I remember in the 1990’s, Topps came out with rookie sets.

    • Ryan Cracknell 23 February, 2018 at 10:08

      @George — Opening Day has never been about having a comprehensive base set. It’s most of a greatest hits.

      For the main Topps release, Series 1 and Series 2 cover 700 cards. There’s also Topps Update that has another 300-350. They’re numbered differently, like Topps Traded box sets used to be, but they have the same design, like the traded sets. That makes for a full collection of about 1,000 cards.

      In the ’80s and early ’90s, there would be one Topps set to last the year plus the late traded set. Now things are broken up. Plus there are dozens of other products throughout the season.

    Very cool to see there will be a relatively easy Ohtani RC to pull! I wonder if it will be a different photo than the Angels team set card?

  5. John S. 7 March, 2018 at 20:05

    This could be a fun break if you’re a fan of a team like the Yankees or Cubs. Or not if you’re a Tigers or Padres fan. My A’s have 6 cards total, including inserts Meanwhile the Dodgers have over 30.
