$10 Wal-Mart Legends Re-Wrap: 2006 Topps Opening Day

Topps Opening Day is the Wild Irish Rose of baseball cards. Whereas "Wild I" is a cheap, stripped down, imitation of actual wine; Opening Day is a cheap, stripped down, imitation of an actual baseball card set. Nonetheless, packs of Opening Day are standard for these re-wraps, and it comes as no surprise that two packs of the '06 edition were found in this one.

As you'll recall, the design of 2006 Opening Day is recycled from the real Topps baseball set, only with cyan-colored foil stamping. The base set was 165 cards, and each pack contained one of 25 SI For Kids inserts.
