The next grouping of pages we'll see all come from Topps Opening Day. The last few years Topps has included an insert set focusing on team traditions, attractions, unique ballpark nuisances and celebrations. These are the items which an experienced fan of the home team may take for granted in some instances, but a newcomer may really swoon over.
As someone who is working on attending a game at all MLB ballparks, this insert set really speaks to me. I enjoy arriving at a new stadium as soon as the gates open and walking at least two laps around the ballpark to soak it all before the actual game gets going.
Here is the 2018 Topps Opening Day Team Traditions and Celebrations insert set.

Personally, I'm a big fan of the celebrity conductors the Cubs bring in for the 7th Inning Stretch. There have been some good ones over the years, but the one that currently comes to mind is the Cookie Monster.
Groundskeepers into the act. Love it!
I'll have more of the same in the next Folder of Fun post, so stay tuned!
