2021 Opening Day Insert Cubs

 Opening Day has several insert sets.  There are a couple that are super short-printed and I am not going for the Cubs cards in those.  Putting SSPs in Opening Day seems to go against the set's concept, which is a simple kid-friendly set.

This card comes from the Opening Day subset, which has a card for each team.  The Cubs picture is from their 2020 opener, in which they won 2-0.


This set features some outstanding opening day performances.  Baez hit two homers to kick off the 2019 season.  Billy hit a 10th inning walk-off homer against the Cardinals to give the Cubs a 1-0 win.  Fergie outdueled Bob Gibson.  

Here's the homer.

The mascot set returns and includes Clark.

  1. I know they're a little silly, but I like the mascot set. The mascot autographs are fun, too.
