The Topps Opening Day set uses the exact same design as the Series 1 counterpart, and even uses the exact same photos. The main difference is the inclusion of a 2013 Opening Day logo on the front. Furthermore, there are always a handful Dodger players inserted into this set that did not make it into the Series 1 flagship set, so we get an early peek at what their cards will look like when the Series 2 version comes out. For instance, we get a first look at base cards of Hanley Ramirez, Carl Crawford and Zack Greinke in a Dodger uniform (see the 2013 Topps Dodgers base cards here). I think the Greinke card is poorly airbrushed!
There are only 9 Dodgers' players represented in this 220 card set. See them all below. I'll a have the Dodgers' inserts to show in a future posting.
#11 Hanley Ramirez
#45 Clayton Kershaw #46 Zack Greinke
#60 Carl Crawford #86 Brandon League
#87 Adrian Gonzalez #100 Matt Kemp
#153 Andre Ethier #192 Josh Beckett
