2008 Upper Deck Timeline

    Hello all. Today I continue with the repack box with a 2008 Upper deck Timeline pack. They say "look for 2 inserts cards in each pack, on average" but they should really call them subsets as all the cards are all numbered in one continuous series. Still nice to know you will get 2 specialty cards in a pack.

2008 Upper Deck Timeline

#38 Travis Hafner (Indians)
#8 Chipper Jones (Braves)

#44 Frank Thomas (A's)
Gold Parallel #38 Travis Hafner (Indians)

92 UD Minors #115 Felix Pie (Cubs) RC
UD Timeless Teams #265 Ryan Braun (Brewers)

Some Backs
     It's good when parallel colors are reflected on the backs of the card as well.

Total Cards:
Teams Represented: 5
Rookie Cards:
 1 (Felix Pie) 
Sub Sets:
 2 (92 UD Minors, UD Timeless Teams)
1 (Gold)
Keepers for Me:
 1 (Frank Thomas) The rest are available

Front Design: 6 out of 10 Good action pictures, nice design, good use of team colors, a little bland,  no team logo.
Back Design:
 7out of 10 Nice design, team logo, good player info, different picture than front, good player factoids , only career total stats.
Player Selection:
7 out of 10
Good, stars and good players only.

FINAL OVERALL RATING: 2 out  Single up the middle. A Frank Thomas, a gold parallel, and two inserts (really sub sets) and good overall players scores a single for me.

Don't forget to leave your rating below.

Thanks for Reading!
