We got a chance to open some packs of 2012 Topps Opening Day baseball cards without the cameras rolling on Tuesday, well in advance of the arrival of the retail staple’s debut on March 7.

We’ll save the details for the Box Busters and more to come, though.

For now, check out some of the cards — inserts and notable uniform updates for a few players not seen in 2012 Topps Series 1 — that we found inside.

    This set is complete garbage. I’d rather topps bring back Bazooka or Topps Kids!!! Who really wants yet another parallel of the topps base set which SHOULD be the cheap one of the year.

    I absolutely hate photoshopped cards! You’re better than that Topps!

    Chris, PLEASE tell me there’s a Prince Fielder Tigers card … I don’t want to wait for Series 2 or the update set …

    This product is just as bad as Upper Decks Collectors Choice. I hope this product goes away just like that one did.

    affordable for kids yes….eye appeal for adults, no. I like how they have the new uni’s but dont like the photoshopping. I’ll probably grab a box for $15-$20 for IP/TTM of guys in new jerseys

    I’ll probably pass on these for the most part, the one exception being the mascot cards. I will have to order a set of those when I get a chance. I know this is the only product that mascot cards wouldn’t be complained about, but I wish they had the foil stamping like the regular Topps set.

    Love the mascots……Topps, put them in the regular base set! I don’t need Opening Day but may grab a box or 2 for short prints & give the remainder to my nephews.
