2010 Topps Opening Day Box Break

Hello all Buffet readers. Today I have a 2010 Topps Opening Day box break. I always like this nice affordable alternate set to Topps regular release. I don't know what happened last year but they are back this year so I am in again. I have done these since 06 and always enjoy them. This box came with 36 packs with 7 cards per pack. That's less cards then the last set boxes in 08 but I guess they chose less cards as opposed to raising the price. My shop had this box for $29.  Here we go!

Base Set
220 cards. Look identical to regular issue except no foil and the Opening Day logo in the corner. I did like in years past how they would change the border color but I guess they changed that practice this year. There's the new rookie cup logo on the Coghlan card. Check out Nite Owl's  Rookie Cup post. Good stuff there.
 I got 207 of the 220. (94.09%)

Blue Parallel sn'd /2010
Same as the regular set's gold parallel except blue.
I got 9 of these.

Mascot Cards
These are fun additions as an insert set this year. In years past they were part of the regular set so I guess we get 25 more players now that they are numbered seperately.
I got 10 of 25 (40%)

Opening Day Topps Town
Another version the Topps Town cards that some like and some don't. I actually do like them as I think they have improved them each year and at this point they have some player info on them so they are more like an insert set. 
I got 11 of 25 (44%)

Superstar Celebration
These are a new concept as they show a team celebrate a walk off win and the back recounts the specific game.
I got 4 of 10 (40%)

Where'd You Go Bazooka Joe
 A take off of "Where's Waldo" where you have to find Bazooka Joe in the crowd behind the player.
I got 4 of 10 (40%)

Opening Day Topps Attax
These are from the Attax game and look pretty cool. They have refractor qualities without being chrome. I have no idea how the game works but I like these style game cards.
I got 6 of 25 (24%)

I also got 6 of the yellow Attax code cards that are just a waste of time but I guess the kids use them so it's part of the deal.

Overall I am very happy with the box and I think I am going to try to build all the insert sets this year too. I have some base doubles from the loose packs I have bought for trade so if you need any let me know. I will be adding my Opening Day needs to my wanted page shortly if any body can help me out.

Thanks for Reading!

Did they include all the players on Topps all-star rookie team.

Looks cool. Pretty nice that the subsets are different from the flagship. Nice price for the box too.
