Presstime Repacks

 A quick pause from the questions, as I have received my first cards for 2012. Technically I was waiting for cards from 2012 but I'm not going to be picky. These two Presstime Repacks come from 'A Dollar Store', not 'The Dollar Store' (Are there many versions?), as the person who bought these back from the US wasn't able to tell me exactly.
Before I even opened the packs, I knew that these packs would contain many 1989-1994 era cards, they just have that aura around them that shouts cheap! The parent from school who bought them back was excited that they had found more baseball cards and I didn't want to appear ungrateful. It was nice that they thought about me again.
A quick search of PressTime doesn't give away too much information, except they were founded in 2006 with the goal of bringing value and excitement back to the sports collectibles marketplace.
These should be opened in Pursuit of Red Sox, but I have some packs from Big B waiting in the wings.
So PressTime what exciting cards await in these two interesting packs.

Pack 1:
1984 Topps #440 Fernando Velenzuela Dodgers
1988 Donruss #62 Steve Bedrosian Phillies
1988 Score #547 Steve Henderson Athletics
1988 Score #164 Ken Caminiti Astros
1989 Topps #632 Bryan Harvey Angels
1990 Donruss #21 Tommy Herr DK Phillies
1990 Donruss #532 Atlee Hammaker Giants
1990 Fleer #574 Jose Alvarez Braves
1991 Upper Deck #421 Willies Randolph Athletics
1991 Topps #449 Juan Berenguer Twins
1992 Donruss #715 Checklist
1992 Upper Deck #584 Mike Simms Astros
1993 Bowman #113 Rick Sutcliffe Orioles
1993 Upper Deck #657 Gene Harris Padres
1994 Pinnacle #145 Allen Watson Cardinals
1994 Pinnacle #159 Mickey Morandini Phillies
1994 Topps #22T Mark Portugal Giants
2001 Fleer Platinum #365 Jose Mesa Phillies
2001 Fleer Greats #40 Joe Carter Blue Jays
2002 Fleer Fall classic #52 Johnny Podres Dodgers
2004 Topps #650 Houston Astros

Exciting? I have decided to implement a new symbol on packs that reveal no Red Sox, thanks to Cardboard Junkie. The 'I No Draw Sox' Pony. Just to show disgust or regret at pulling no sox.

Onto Pack 2:
1986 Fleer #18 Dan Quisenberry Royals
1987 Topps #132 Paul Assenmacher Braves
1990 Score #264 Omar Vizquel Mariners
1990 Topss #563 Alex Sanchez Blue Jays
1991 Bowman #605 Tim Belcher Dodgers
1991 Donruss #244 Tommy Gregg Braves
1991 Donruss #347 Dana Kiecker Red Sox
1991 Score #793 Sandy Alomar Jr Indians
1991 Upper Deck Bret Saberhagen Royals
1991 Upper Deck #444 Rickey Henderson Athletics
1991 Upper Deck #523 Danny Turtabull Royals
1992 Upper Deck # 117 Jim Leyritz Yankees
1993 Leaf #194 Bill Swift Giants
1993 Leaf #312 Alex Cole Rockies
1993 Stadium Club #571 Gerald Williams Yankees
1993 Topps #622 Ben Rivera Phillies
2001 Upper Deck MVP #42 Steve Cox Bay Rays
2001 Upper Deck MVP #146 Jorge Posada Yankees
2002 Donruss Fan Club #13 Cliff Floyd Marlins
2008 Topps #3of4 checklist
So I was a little incorrect.
There were cards from later than 1994 and earlier than 1989. A solitary Red Sox and it wasn't that interesting.

Dodgers hot packs... 1984 Topps Fernando Valenzuela & a 2002 Fall Classic Johnny Podres... pretty cool cards (even if I can't stand the Dodgers).

That "Dollar Store" would be Dollar Tree. How I know this will remain confidential :)
