I received a small bubble mailer package on my Birthday today. My portion of the cards pulled from Colby at Cardboard Collections Blog his second Affordable Group Box Break of the year. This time the products were 2002 Topps Gallery Baseball and 2004 Topps Clubhouse Collection Baseball with a bonus repacked box of 100 cards, a box of 2017 Panini Diamond Kings Baseball and I think a bonus pack of something. My purchased team (I think it was 18 bucks this time) was of course the Expos and my random team was originally the Diamondbacks but we were allowed to make trades with the random teams so I traded for the Blue Jays. Getting both Canadian Teams cards hehe. IN total there were 15 cards 11 Blue Jays, 3 Expos, 1 National. He also included an open wrapper from the Clubhouse Collection, and the promo foldout leaflet from Topps Gallery for an auction of the art work that was used in the card set.

Monday 12 Jun 17:

The first part of my landslide Sportlots order. 7 packages (5 PWEs, 2 small bubble mailers) A combination of PC stuff and some trade stuff making a quick turn around. Since everything is from Sportlots I won't bother mentioning that is where they came from. I am expecting 5 more packages from this order.

1986 Reprint of 1895 Mayos Cut Plug NNO Ed Cartwright Senators

That last one I knew was a reprint, it was sold as a reprint and listed that way at Sportlots. I didn't realize the originals had black blank backs. The Reprint is white back and has "Mayo Cut Plug Reprint 1986" on the back in two lines. I was a little disappointed. I was expecting something similar to the more recent Topps Mayo Retro cards that had a back style similar to the A&G backs. Ironic that the most expensive card in the batch so far is a reprint of antique vintage. I got it mostly cause he is a Washington Player and the second Senator to hit for the cycle (http://curlywcards.blogspot.com/2017/05/get-on-your-bikes-and-ride.html most of the stats I got from wikipedia).

Package 5: 3 cards at 18 Shipping $2.85
1995 Donruss Baseball: 248 Tom Glavine Braves
2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces Baseball: 54 Yogi Berra Yankees, Jackie Robinson Dodgers - last card needed to complete the set. Yay! Wasn't sure if I actually had the card because my blogs indicate I still needed it.

I recently made a small to medium sized Sportlots order that included some cards that I bought for a trade I am very delinquent on. I have 3 delinquent trades on my books that I know of including that one I got some of these cards for. I expect most of the incoming cards to come during this week (11 June 17 June) so I can ship out Saturday. Some of the cards in this list will go to that.

Saturday 10 June 2017:
5 card Sportslot order each card was 18 + $2.90 shipping for the lot.
1993 Fleer Baseball: 477 Dave Magadan Mets
1995 Donruss Baseball:
