2008 Upper Deck Timeline retail from Blowout Cards.
I think it was $12.00 or something like that.
24 packs in a box, 6 cards per pack.
That means 144 cards towards the set of 385.
Note the "on average" for two insert cards per pack.
I must have had about 2-3 packs with only 1 or no insert it seemed.
And with the high numbers so hard to pull this made completing a set even more difficult.
Here's the stack after all the packs were opened.
I already had most of the base set before I tore in.
This effort was to pick up the shorter print cards numbered 100-385.
Yes, there are a lot of those.
1992 UD Minor League style cards I pulled numbered 101-130.
Twelve of them.
I needed several of these.
Nice to pull both a Longoria and a Votto rookie.
Of the 1994 All-Time Heroes I needed about half.
Again, twelve pulled.
Starting to see a trend.
These are numbered 131-180.
Pulled these 1995 SP Top Prospects 181-210 of which I needed most.
Only 8 not 12 though..
Probably due to the several packs that only had 1 or no inserts.
The higher the number the scarcer the pull so these are getting harder and harder to pull.
That means that I needed almost all the rest of the cards I pulled.
Another pretty good amount of 2004 Timeless Teams numbered 211-310 in the box.
Twelve again, see what I mean?
I needed every single one of these.
Only 1 each of the super high numbers.
1993 SP #311-336 Jed Lowrie
1994 SP #336-360 Chin-Lung Hu
1995 SP #361-385 Rico Washington
And only 1 gold parallel in the whole box!
I also got a waste of space threesome of Yankee Stadium Legacy.
These have already gone bye-bye through Listia.
I hate these.
After counting up the inserts I have more than the quota of 2 per pack = 48.
Can't figure how that happened.
I grade the contents of this box a C.
All-in-all though I knocked off a little chunk of cards towards the complete set.
