Pack Wars: 2008 UD Timeline Pack #2

I've been trying to jump back and forth between the 2011 Topps baseball packs and the "not 2011 Topps baseball packs" for the Pack Wars.  Since I busted a pack of 2011 Topps earlier today, it's time for one of the other packs now.  This is the second (and final) UD Timeline pack from the box - a set that I'm still working on.  Here's hoping I land a card that I need!

Pack Wars II - Pack 11:
2008 UD Timeline (6 cards):

17.  Ken Griffey Jr. - White Sox

It's weird seeing Griffey in a non-Mariners, non-Reds uniform.  I don't like it but it's still Griffey Jr...+2

26.  Randy Johnson - Diamondbacks
The Big Unit was a lot of fun to watch, perhaps never as much fun as when he faced John Kruk in the All-Star game.  +2

35.  Roy Halladay - Blue Jays
I liked Halladay when he was with the Jays, not so much now that he's a Phillie.  +2 for being a Jay.

128.  Russell Martin - Dodgers

I like the throwback design to the early 90s Upper Deck sets.  A nice clean, crisp looking card.  +2

186.  Chris Smith - Red Sox
I didn't remember having this card...but if my want list is correct I must have a copy already.  -1 for tricking me.

224.  Manny Ramirez - Dodgers

The first card I need is number 235 in the set - so I guess this pack is a dud in terms of helping me out as well seeing as how the highest numbered card is only 224.  Sigh.  At least I have more trade bait now...  +2 because of all the Dodger collectors out there.

Pack total:  9 points

For a six card pack, that's not terrible.  Unfortunately, it's one point worse than the first UD Timeline pack scored...
