Timeless Treasures is short, sweet and to the point. Instead of a box, each pack comes in its own separate tin. Each one yields two base cards numbered to 399 or parallels numbered to less. There are 100 veterans and 50 rookies.
Outside of the base cards, there are three autographs or relics in each tin. The pool of players covers the gamut of a who's who in the annals of basketball. From guys like George Mikan to John Wall, Timeless Treasures covers the history of basketball.
In general, I'm not a huge fan of products with 1 pack. Usually, it is because the price point takes it out of the hands of a lot of collectors. As for Timeless Treasures, the price is somewhat a redeeming quality. While the cards are amazing in quality of design and excitement, only getting 2 out of 150 base cards is not desirable to most (a discouraging fact of a lot of high-end products). Add to the fact that in the same price range, there are many other products that will contain the same amount of "hits" on top of a base set and inserts, it is very easy to steer clear of this one. Yes, I realize that "hit" potential is probably greater with Timeless Treasures, but for a lot of collectors, it is about a lot more than that when opening a product.
Once again, I'd like to thank our wonderful sponsors at Panini for giving us the opportunity to open and review this release. For more information on all their products, you can visit them at www.paniniamerica.net.
