When I was kid I looked forward to my Dad returning from work because most of the time he would bring home a pack of Topps Baseball cards for us to open together. While I thought I was getting some neat cardboard of my favorite players, looking back on it now I realize what I really got was time with my father. It was a bonding experience.
Now I’m a Dad. Cards have changed as much as I have from the time I was a child. Now there are multiple, complex and sometimes expensive releases and it seems as if kids concerns can get lost in the shuffle, especially the younger ones. But 2106 Topps Opening Day Baseball cards offer a great collecting experience for children while taking it easy on a parent’s budget, satisfying both which is not an easy task.
