2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball Variations Checklist and Gallery

MainWhereas some products go a little crazy with their variations, 2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball Variations stick close to the brand's model of simplicity and fun. Early cards to surface showcase playful shots and celebratory images. Keep track of all the 2016 Topps Opening Day Variations and their differences using the helpful guide below.

Shop for 2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball variations on eBay.

As is normally the case, 2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball elected to not include the variations on the final checklist, leaving collectors to fend for themselves. This is where we come in. Unlike the more recent options — like 2016 Heritage — the 2016 Topps Opening Day Variations are only about the image differences and they are quite obvious. This is more similar to the 2016 flagship variations.

Continuing the theme first noted in Heritage, codes on the card backs again appear to be no help and are the same for base and variation alike (#7425). This puts additional importance on being able to spot the photos. One other observation is that many of the 2016 Topps Opening Day Baseball Variations flip the orientation to horizontal, making them easier to notice in comparison to the many vertical base cards..

The guide below contains a side-by-side look at all variations and their corresponding base cards. The guide should be considered a work in progress and we will look to add them as quickly as possible. Spot something we are missing? Email us directly.

  1. Surely Topps could have found someone, ANYONE other than A-rod for a variation card, eh?

  2. Ichiro (OD-29) has a variant. Found it in a blaster box. Horizontal photo of Ichiro pitching. Only reason I discovered this is the box had both it and the base card.
