2019 Topps Opening Day - The Dodger Base Cards

Topps answer to an entry-level card brand has now hit stores. It is their 2019 Opening Day set, and as you may know it uses the exact same design as their flagship brand released a couple of weeks ago. To distinguish itself from that set they add an Opening Day logo on all the cards. Furthermore, this brand is far cheaper than the flagship set. You can find a hobby box of Opening Day (with 36 packs) for $20-$25; whereas, a box of hobby Series 1 cards (with only 24 packs) will run you about $50-$60. Go here for a complete checklist.

Five Dodgers' can be found in the base set of 200 cards -- three of whom can be found in the Series 1 flagship set with the exact same photos (Seager, Jansen & Kershaw). Max Muncy and Matt Kemp are the other two Dodgers in this set, so we get an early peek at what their card will look like. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the last time we see a Matt Kemp card as a Dodger on this flagship design.

BTW, Muncy also has a photo variation available and it happens to feature a pic from a recent walk-off homer. Check it out at the very bottom of this post.


#5 Corey Seager                #21 Kenley Jansen

#46 Clayton Kershaw               #48 Matt Kemp

#67 Max Muncy

#79 Justin Turner

Below is only Dodgers' variation card available in the set, and I am 100% confident that the photo features Max Muncy's 18th inning-Game 3-World Series walk-off homer. You watch this momentous homer here.

Base Variations
