2008 Topps Opening Day

    Hello all, today I have the second pack from the repack box to present here on the Cafe. I have a pack of 2008 Topps Opening Day. I believe this is the last year they made the cards look different from the flagship set by changing the border color along with adding the Opening Day logo. I wish they would still do that but since they don't I will no longer build the sets.

Good quality players.

FINAL OVERALL RATING: Fly Out to center field. Zero  keepers and a checklist that's counted as a card makes an out for this pack. A good player selection and decent design puts the bat on the ball.
