2015 Topps Opening Day baseball is here and I am excited. Yes, you heard that correctly. I am excited for 2015 Topps Opening Day baseball. In fact, I went ahead and bought two boxes for $25 each over at DACW.
Well there is a reason why. It’s not because it’s a cheap break. We all know that I’m not a huge set builder. It’s not for the hits, because really? Topps Opening Day? Not full of that wicked mojo. It’s because of this one single card:

One single card makes this entire product for me because it is MY card. My first and probably only licensed card ever made. Just as good as these custom cards I made for my wedding (at least these will sell on eBay or COMC).
Just as I was sitting at Nationals Park a day before my graduate school graduation occurred at George Washington University, I saw an Instagram post from Topps asking for stadium photos in a contest they were running. I thought…”why not?” and took a single photo from our seats in the first row in the 200 level.
And all conspiracy theories aside, this was my personal Instagram account which has no links to my blog or any of that.
So I’m excited to rip open a couple of boxes of Opening Day this year so I can have that feeling of getting my own card pulled.
With that being said, I hear via Twitter that some people want my autograph TTM for this card. So if you do want an autograph for a TTM collection, drop your email in a comment on this post and we’ll get it hooked up. Or send me a message on Twitter.
