On Friday 03 July 2015: A one package one card day. Odd I had already grabbed the mail that was in my mailbox for the day. Most of it was bills or other such mail that doesn't need any immediate attention for the day. I guess my mail carrier was still doing his rounds of my building and hadn't done the packages yet. Knock on my door good thing it is one of those Holiday on Saturday so work off Friday. Anyway the package is from Ebay that had an estimated delivery for Monday the 6th. Wish the shipping stars could be marked "delivered earlier than estimated date". So lets see for... .99 + $2.54 shipping I have 2015 Topps Museum Baseball 30 Stephen Strasburg Nationals Green parallel #d 100/199 will go nicely with my regular base of this card.

Two package day today Tuesday 02 June 2015: UGH at my postal carrier for cramming stuff into my mailbox. They would have fit OK not crammed but the book part was a little bent out of shape at first, with some bending the other way the paperbound book will survive. Good thing it wasn't mint to begin with but also good thing it wasn't damaged beyond repair or my satisfaction. Big Sigh. Back to the package contents.

The bent out of shape book I got from Ebay for $9.19 w/Free Shipping. As stated it is a softbound book "paperback" if you will, except larger than standard pocket sized paperback novels. It is 5.5 x 8.5 Mint Condition subtitled "How Baseball Cards became a American Obsession" by Dave Jamieson I've seen a couple of card bloggers give it high marks and Kudos.

Next package was my goodies from a Baseball Group Box Break from TCZ by Ken aka: pwolantern. My bought homie team is my standard Nationals and I bought the Twins at a discount.

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.
