Time for an Early April mail day, actually two mail days.

Monday 03 April 2017 was a one package mailday one Sportlots auction (the sight unseen one) a 5 card lot that was raised to the winning bid of $1.25 Shipping a whopping $5.00 super sealed as the package was sent using "BuyMyCards.Net" Each card individually penny sleeved, all 5 card sandwiched between two card sized pieces of cardboard all sealed inside a clear plastic bag, which was in a larger sealed bag the surrounding envelope was taped real good. BuyMyCards.Net looks to mean business. Anyway the mystery of these cards was they were a 5 card lot from the 1965 Topps Baseball set for my "Strive For '65" set build. A few weeks ago I had bid on a similar auction from this guy for 10 cards from '65 but was outbid on that one. Anyway since this guys auctions never have pictures I wasn't sure if I should risk it I could have gotten 5 duplicates. I lucked out and only 2 of the 5 were duplicates:
So here are the 5 cards finally:
1965 Topps Baseball:
84 Ron Herbel Giants(dupe)
93 Jack Fisher Mets
100 Ken Boyer Cardinals (dupe)
315 Frank Malzone Red Sox
365 Jim Gentile Athletics

Tuesday 04 April 2017: 3 card 3 envelope/package Birthday Mail Day.

Card one was from a contest from TCC member dlackey (Dennis) it was a "Guess the Number" contest. The number was from 1-100 but had nothing to do with the card itself, it was just a random number. The card is a very PC card both in player and team.
2011 Panini Playoff Contenders: Prospect Ticket: RT-10 Anthony Rendon Washington Red crackly ice? Or Red refractor, regular refractor? Crackly Refractor? After looking at the dang checklists I think it is called "Crystal". So it is the "Prospect Ticket Crystal Collection" I guess. Serial number is 223/299 sort of a "jersey number" for him since 23 is the jersey number he is showing from his college days at Rice

Package 2: 1 card Sportlots auction another auction that got a few bids won it for $1.25 + $2.25 shipping
1959 Topps Football: 126 Los Angeles Rams Pennant the back has some "kids" name/signature Brian Room? Brian Rook? Brian Junior? Brian Roo? Brian Root? anyway the name is blue ink scripted Brian something

Package 3: 1 card Sportlots Auction Hey this one came from Canada! Bid 25¢ + $3.39 This card falls into my same name "Kirk" Niche (nitch) PC
2013 Ace Authentic Grand Slam Tennis: Autograph BA-JK1 Jessica Kirkland on silver sticker black sharpie auto - She looks to be a pretty cute redhead. When I looked up her career it seemed she only played for about 7 years.

entry Apr 1 2017, 04:45 PM
ON Saturday 01 April 2017: I got two cards both PWE from Sportlots auctions I have three more auctions I'm waiting on 7 cards total (a 5 card lot is sight unseen)

Card 1: 25¢ + $1.75 Shipping
1964 Philadelphia Gum Football: 187 Bob Khayat Redskins

Card 2: 25¢ + $2.00 Shipping
1988 Topps Baseball: 383 Eric Bell Orioles - On card Autograph in blue sharpie either IP or TTM not sure which but don't really care the O's are still part of my PC.

on Monday 27 Mar 2017 it was just sort of a Non-Sport Magazine Monday sort of day.

The Wrapper #305 Mar 24 - May 15, 2017 Cover 1954 Topps World on Wheels. There is also an article on Non-Sports OPC box identification. I"m not sure when I'll get around to reading that. I don't get around to reading many of these articles after the magazine first arrives.

Non-Sport Update: Apr/May 2017 Vol 28 No 2 Spider-Man Cover. Odd the plastic wrap has clear tape closing the top doesn't seem right. There is a bulky feel as if cards are there bottom right. Price guide is there on back with 1959 Fleer Indian Trading Cards cover mentioning an Article on 1959 Fleer Indian Trading Cards. OH good the promo cards were there. As per the cover there is:
2017 Cryptozoic Gotham: Before The Legend Season 2 promo card P3. Odd looking copyright stuff. No year specifically mentioned but after the mention of Gotham being a DC Comics and Warner Bros. Entertainment property there is a (s17) I guess that is their way of saying 2017 now?
2017 Cryptozoic The Flash: Season 2 promo card P1. Same sort of copyright stuff. Sheesh I'd rather have to try to figure out the Roman Numerals than this (s17) stuff.
2017 Non-Sport Update: Fleer Ultra Spider-Man Front has a cool Spider-man image. "Fleer Ultra Spider-Man" logo is in red foil lettering boo hard to read, up top and down at the bottom Spider-Man in red foil again I guess since it is an image of Spidey. NoNumber No copyright year only back info is The Artist is Ray Lago the copyright info is Non-Sport Update Fleer Marvel (with Marvel.com and Marvel) NSU. Oh and this card is super thick, Mostly what I was feeling before I opened the clear plastic wrap that is normally not open at the top with clear tape shutting it closed.

On Wednesday 22 Mar 2017 I got 2 card packages.

The first package (a PWE) was the missing card from a few days back. Fortunately what happened was the seller just didn't put the card in the original envelope. These things Happen. Anyway from Sportlots the now found card is:
1954 Bowman Baseball: 197 Lou Kretlow Orioles 75¢ + 75 shipping.

Package 2 a small bubble mailer was a single card from Ebay for 69 + $3.00 shipping a subset completer card
2003 Topps Bazooka Baseball: 7 Joe Bazooka Cardinals.
Now I have all 31 BASE Joe Bazooka cards, Only 5 of the minis and No Silver Parallels.

Non cards related I got a book from Ebay by a new fave author Greg Cox a Star Trek Novel "No Time LIke The Past" The story is based in the TOS era but has a time travel cross-over from Voyager. The description sounded super cool so I had to get it.

Saturday 18 Mar 2017: got 4 cards from a Sportlots seller 4 auctions each won at the opening 25¢ + $3.66 shipping. I had bid on a couple of other cool cards from this guy but got outbid on those other 1970 Topps.

1960 Topps Baseball: 362 Russ Kemmerer Senators
1966 Topps Baseball: 273 Astro Aces: Bob Aspromonte and Rusty Staub
1970 Topps Baseball:
17 Hoyt Wilhelm Braves

ON Thursday 16 Mar 17: I got a single small package that contained 4 cards from some Sportlots Auctions. Two of the cards were auction purchases for $1.25 each and shipping was $3.50 the other two cards were bonus cards.

1953 Topps Baseball:
142 Vic Wertz Browns
219 Pete Runnels Senators

I had also won a 1954 Bowman Lou Kretlow Orioles card but that one was missing. I think it was just an oversight. The seller included two "bonus" cards, but I think that is his standard fair. May or May Not have been to make up for the missing card.

Since I already have a copy of this card (although with a weird pencil mark on front) this new copy does not count toward my "Strive For '65" Goal. It is a bonus card.
