The Road to Opening Day

This might be the first time a Topps NOW card has arrived in the consumers' hands before the event it was touting actually occurred.

Behold! Here's the Vogelmonster's "Road to Opening Day" card for 2020.
If you flip the card over you'll see some true insight about the Mariners' upcoming 2020 season, "With some of the most talented players in Baseball, the Seattle Mariners are poised to take a leap during the 2020 campaign for the AL West Division title."
I could get really snarky here about Topps' analysis, but instead I'll just say it's nice to see some positivity for a change. The Mariners competing for an AL West crown?  Hey, in a shortened season anything could happen. Right?

So, when do you think the Road to Opening Day will end?


  1. Ha agree. Topps being a little aggressive there. Cool card though!

  2. I'd love to see baseball around Memorial Day. I have a hard time believing players will be in shape and well-practiced by then. If we do have a season, I foresee many injuries. So much for Fortune Teller cards...

  3. I hope by June 13th... that's when my summer vacation officially begins. When it does... I hope the Mariners and A's are the two best teams in the AL West.
