2008 Upper Deck Timeline Blaster Break Trade Bait

I was at my local Wal-Mart yesterday, looking for some new Topps Heritage.  There wasn't any on the shelves which is typical of my Wal-Mart.  They get cards a lot slower than some stores around the other collectors in the blog world.  So, I decided to get a discounted blaster of 2008 Upper Deck Timeline.  This set features players of 08 on cards from all different sets of Upper Deck.  It's kinda like buying a repack blaster but it was Upper Decks idea of paying tribute to its past history. 

Here is what I pulled that I have for trade:
#1 Jose Reyes
#100 Nick Adenhart RC
#103 Chad Billigsley
#112 Emmanuel Burriss RC
#137 Jake Peavy
#14 Derek Lee
#15 Jason Bay
#155 Carlos Zambrano
#17 Ken Griffey Jr.
#179 Johnny Cueto
#19 Prince Fielder
#2 David Wright
#20 Albert Pujols
#202 Nyjer Morgan RC
#203 Randor Bierd RC
#228 Justin Masterson RC
#23 Matt Kemp
#242 CC Sabathia
#256 Nick Adenhart RC
#26 Randy Johnson
#27 A-Rod
#270 Joe Mauer
#28 Derek Jeter
#30 David Ortiz
#326 Jesse Carlson RC
#36 Jim Thome
#37 Grady Sizemore
#38 Travis Hafner
#41 Justin Verlander
#44 Frank Thomas
#45 Vlad Gurerro
#46 Torii Hunter
#47 Josh Hamilton
#5 Johan Santana
#50 Erik Bedard
#67 Justin Masterson RC
#76 Greg Smith
#8 Chipper Jones
#85 Rico Washington RC
#9 Mark Texeria
#90 Brian Bocock RC
Yankee Stadium Legacy Spud Chandler YSL1509

This is the base card of this set.  It looks really nice.  I wish the whole set had this type of look.

These two to the left and right are the reason why, I didn't fully enjoy this break.  I didn't like these cards in the 90s and they brought them back and one has a picture of Nyjer Morgan on it.  Yuck!

Ok, now this is more like it.  I enjoyed pulling cards that look like this from the packs.  Remember Peavy as a Padre and CC as a Brewer.  It seems so long ago doesn't it?

Now here we go.  The look of this Billingsley is bringing back some great childhood memories.  Simple classic look by Upper Deck.

How many Yankee Stadium Legacy cards are there?  Upper Deck seems to sneak them into every set that they release.  May someone please let the card companies know that not everyone is a Yankee fan.  I don't care about there legacy!

Now here is the guaranteed hit in the box.  I got an AL MVP Josh Hamilton game used jersey!  Hamilton here is seen as a Red but named a Ranger.  So, this could be traded a little more easily since collectors of both teams may show interest in it.

In conclusion, this was an ok blaster to bust.  There was some that I liked and some that I didn't.  I got some solid PC cards out of it.  The hit was nice.  Everything that I pictured and listed is up for trade.  So, please email me or leave a comment below and we should be able to work something out.

That's funny. I get stuck with a Jermaine Dye jersey that no one will ever trade for including Jermaine Dye You get a Josh frickin Hamilton who half the blog universe collects. Life is so unfair sometimes. heehee
