The Topps Opening Day set uses the exact same design as the Series 1 counterpart and the exact same photos from the base set. The main difference between the two is the inclusion of a 2014 Opening Day logo on the front of the cards. 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 Clayton Kershaw, Carl Crawford and Matt Kemp in a Dodger uniform (see the 2014 Topps Series I Dodger base cards here).
There are only 8 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.
#45 Carl Crawford #50 Clayton Kershaw
#193 Matt Kemp #208 Hanley Ramirez
