2008 Upper Deck Timeline Nick Adenhart #321

I busted a couple of 2008 Upper Deck Timeline some time ago and it didn't look like I had the Adenhart among the partial set of cards I'd put together - so for my Angels frankenset, I picked up this card picturing the one-time Angel who was among three people killed by a drunk driver in 2009.

I like how the card design mimics the 1993 Upper Deck SP Premier Prospects subset - I was looking at images of the Adenhart online and thought the card scanned too dark until I realized the card was designed to highlight the player's image with a muted background.

It's a shiny card which is appealing - though it's not exactly refractor shiny where the image pops off the card like a firecracker.
