2008 Upper Deck Timelines retail

2008 Upper Deck Timelines retail [$1.97 each] - retail packs contain six cards as opposed to eight for hobby. I was thinking of picking up the lone blaster box I see of Tristar Projections High Series, but held off during a trip to Walmart.

#6 Hanley Ramirez - base cards were all off-center; it seems like when I find a nice looking product, you find some lack of quality that detracts you from picking up a full box or something that says, 'I love this product' otherwise.

#42 Joe Mauer - the gray borders on the base cards seems so drab.

#24 Matt Holliday - part of the back of the card was scratching off and onto the next card.

#127 Rico Washington 1992 Upper Deck Minor League style - another off-centered card. While it may not show at all, there are scratches on the card. It kind of feels like a 1992 Upper Deck card that has been handled well.

#333 Clayton Kershaw 1993 Upper Deck SP style - there is a tiny nick on the left-hand corner and while the scan might not show it, the card is otherwise sharp looking.

#277 Derek Jeter 2004 Upper Deck Timeless Team style - he is OK.
