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.

On Monday 25 April 2016: I got one PWE from a Sportlots store purchase. One card for .18¢ + .80¢ shipping
2003 Topps Bazooka Baseball: 7 Bazooka Joe Pirates. Now my base Joe Sub-Set is almost complete just need the Cardinals card. Then I can hunt for the 25 minis I need and the complete 30 Silver parallels I need. The bad think about this PWE is it was shipped using a "saver" with instead of tape a small little white filing label that has a code number on it.

1 card from Sportlots auction .25˘ + $3.00 shipping
1971 Topps Baseball: 5 Thurman Munson - Way Off center almost miscut to top: Front team name is at top edge. Back card number and top of bio box on top edge, bottom edge has uninked cardboard strip. I jumped at the chance to get this. My high bid was $10 I think. I would have fought tooth and nail for this card. I've seen it go for obscene prices for almost any condition.

3rd Package: a book from Ebay $5.58 Free Shipping. Paperback Used copy. "You Gotta Have Heart" Frederic J. Frommer. A history of Washington Baseball from 1859 to 2012. Previously used at public library, I hadn't noticed originally that it was a library copy. I knew it was used but oh well it isn't beat up like some library copies get. I was confused a little by the auction listing about having no CD. The seller is a book seller that has a standard template for their listings so some information is just shown on every listing even if it doesn't apply to the specific book you are buying. That mildly annoys me by showing that they are in fact listing so many things they don't check on some specifics of their listings.
