2005 Upper Deck All Star Classics

So a bunch of these discounted packs have started showing up at my local Target, and for $1.59, I can't resist.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
36 Nomar Garciaparra
22 Jason Varitek

20 Ivan Rodriguez
1 Albert Pujols Gold Parallel (250/499)

71 Oliver Perez

79 Bob Gibson
65 Joe Mauer
86 Jim Palmer

Not sure if all packs are like this one, but it seems like the front half is all then-current players, and the back half alternates between All-Star Futures and Legendary All-Stars. Great looking cards, a little hit-or-miss on the checklist given the time period, but a fun pack to open. The Pujols alone makes up the cost of the entire pack. Not bad.

You're basically right on with the layout of each pack...

I have a ton of these. Trying to finish the GOLD SET ##/499. Need Oliver Perez and Ken Griffey JR. Any help would really be appreciated. Good pull on the Pujols. http://members.cox.net/fshstry
