A Few Retail Packs of UD Timelines

I was at Target this past weekend, preparing for an upcoming trip, and thought I'd check out the cards. I hadn't purchased much of anything for awhile, and have been intrigued by the Timelines release. I like the fact that you get a few "inserts" in every pack, as variation is always a good thing. It reminds me of the early days of Score, where along with the colorful base cards, you would always get a few nice inserts, such as Dream Team, Franchise, or All-Star cards.

I purchased two packs, and actually got both of these in the same one. It was a nice surprise, as I never seem to pull any A's myself. Although it's a little odd, I do kind of like the disembodied head look on the 1994 All-Time Heroes Subset insert.

I got six base cards in the two packs, with at least three Hall of Famers. There's some argument over the design of the base cards, but I actually like them.

The last scan includes the four inserts I received in the packs. One base rookie, a 1992 Upper Deck Minors, a 1995 SP Minors Die-Cut, and finally a 2004 Timeless Teams. Of the four I actually like the 1992 Minors the best, as it reminds me of my earlier days of collecting, when a $0.99 pack of Upper Deck was a splurge! Other than the two A's (of course), the rest of the cards are all for trade. If anyone's interested, just let me know!

This set reminds me of a blister repack or something. Random cards of different set thrown together.

I totally agree. It is kind of odd getting so many different "sets" in the same pack, but I also think it makes it a little more enjoyable.
