2018 Topps Opening Day Variation Guide

Release Date: March 7

Opening Day has come a long way in the last few seasons. This set is a very inexpensive set to go after, and looked at as a beginner set, but they have been sneaking more and more variations and rare inserts into the sets. There are autos and relics in Opening Day, but they aren’t what drive the set. They have added some really nice, and rare, insert sets to go with the SSP variations to give the set some nice things to chase.

What to Look For?

The Opening Day set is the identical design as the flagship Topps but with the Opening Day logo in a lower corner. The images are usually the same as the Topps set but in some cases they will use a new image. The SSP variations are all image variations and can be tough to spot if you don’t know what the images are supposed to be. Like the flagship Topps, you can also spot the codes on the back of the card to identify a variation.

BASE CARD: end in 17

VARIATION: end in #95 - 1:477 pack odds
