On Saturday 09 May 2015: a single package day one card from Ebay $2.10 + $2.32 Shipping
2005 Upper Deck Reflections Baseball: Future Reflections: base
223 Ryan Zimmerman Nationals. The gold foiling on the "Future Reflections" text either didn't get printed properly or has faded in its 10 years of existence. Yeah so I'll probably need to get another one. Personally this one looks like it should have been a "gold" parallel but I don't think they made them like that and it is not serial numbered like a parallel usually is.

On Saturday 18 April 2015: I had a one package mailday from sportlots for just .25 for a lot of 10 cards plus an ugly $4.00 shipping I got:
2010 Topps Baseball Million Cards Give-A-Way Code Cards:
TMC-21 though TMC-30 for some odd reason 4 of them have blue sharpie across the code, I guess the original owner would mark off the code once they entered them. Kind of stinks for the second hand owner. but whatever. I do want to get the rest of these cards. Actually I have an art project in mind for these so I will need multiples of each card eventually.

OH I almost forgot the seller used some 1988 Donruss Diamond King puzzle pieces for end protectors in the team bag. So from the 1988 Donruss Baseball Diamond King: Stan Musial Puzzle Card 43-45 and Card 46-48
