‘Wednesday’s Word Association’ – When I Hear The Name “Topps Opening Day”, I Think Of…

Poor Execution

Topps’ Opening Day baseball card set was released today.  Yet, Opening Day is not for another two weeks.  Kind of odd, right??

I am one of the few collectors that I know that truly enjoys this set.  I like the theme and I love the added ‘Opening Day’ graphics.

But, it is the timing that really gets me.  Sure,  I understand why Topps may release the set prior to Opening Day.  Maybe it is to get the collectors and fans more excited about the upcoming season.

But, if I had my choice, this set would be issued after Opening Day, and it would be much larger in volume.  Today, the set consists of 220 cards, an average of 7 cards per team.  But in reality, many teams get well over 7 cards and some get well under that mark as well.  My preference would be that the set is expanded to feature each and every player that was on the starting lineup for Opening Day for their teams.  Each team would get 9 cards, adding another 70 cards to the set.  And it would be perfect if the images were snapped from the actual ‘Opening Day’ and the set was issued a few weeks after.

Enough said.
