PressTine Baseball Trading Cards

"While you are in America could you buy some baseball cards? ...I will give you the money!"
One of the pitfalls in asking people from the UK to buy baseball cards while they are visiting the US, usually Florida, is that they will sometimes return with these PreeTine repacks. I am usually hoping for packs and I am not that fussy, encouraging them to look in Walmart or Target, even Toys 'R' Us for the latest cards. However the PreeTine packs will be filled with cards that I am sure will come the late 80's -early 90's era 'Junk Wax'.
I must add that I appreciate the effort people have taken to actually find the cards, nevertheless these packs will not yield cards to fill my wants list.
The last time I received some of these, there was 20 cards in the pack, so the number has bumped a little. More cards for your money?
And the packs were purchased from a service station in Florida. A service station?

I have three packs and each pack contains 30 'genuine collectible trading cards'

So these were much better than I expected. I collected the Flashback Friday cards, so it was surprise to find a card to add to the collection plus a couple of Red Sox. The 'Who to Watch' die cut cards from Fleer Tradition are nice looking cards as well.
Overall a better selection of cards but the majority, roughly half the packs, were Junk Wax.
