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 01 July 2015: I had a one envelope one card mailday. From Ebay for $24.99 + $3.00 shipping. Yeah I know the card was a bit expensive but I think worth it. a 1953 Sugar Daddy Comic Character Cards R757-2 #29 The Dragon Lady from Terry And The Pirates comic strip. A few weeks back I had gotten the other variant of this card the R757-1 variant for much cheaper. The first variant with the fill-in-the-blank for the name is slightly easier to find since it didn't have to be mutilated, this R757-2 variant the one with the coupon is sometimes difficult to find with the coupon intact and in such good shape as this one is in.

I plan on getting the rest of this set both variants eventually. 50 cards per set for a total of 100 cards. The dash one set I'll try to get unmarked and the dash two set I want with the coupon intact so both sets will take me a while to get. As usual I want to get it on the cheap.

From Ebay on Tuesday 28 April 2015: A deck of playing cards came in $4.74 Free Shipping Lady Bligh Spiced Rum Playing Cards. Seems to be some kind of sister brand to Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. Lady Bligh comes in three flavors Regular Spiced Rum, Coconut Rum, and Cherry Spiced Rum. I think the deck I got the other day the Blackheart rum Playing cards might be an imitator to Lady Bligh. I don't know the liquor business well enough to know. I just like the logos which is why I got the decks. Plus they were cheap enough.

ON Friday 22 Aug 2014: I got a lone package. A small priority mail box from Ebay for $39.95 + $5.00 (a deal for this particular set which I've seen often start at twice as much)
2012 Rittenhouse Warehouse 13: Season 3 26 card Base Set.
My beefs with these Warehouse 13 sets from Season 2 on is the base set is only 26 cards (2 card per episode it seems) that are limited to only 250 or so they say.

At first I was disappointed at least for the Season 3 set that they printed the back of the card upside down from the front but actually come to think of it when they are in an album oriented so that the top of the card is on the left of the page they will flip correctly.

Now I need to get Seasons 2 and 4 part one they haven't printed a part 2 yet that I know of or a Season 5 (the final season) yet.

On Wednesday 18 June 2014: I had a one bubble mailer kind of day. 4 Ebay auctions from one seller 4 cards (+ a bonus card) shipping was $4.00 (shipping was originally $3.00 each card) all four purchases were related and auto cards. All autographs are on card blue sharpie.

2005 Rittenhouse Xena and Hercules: The Animated Aventures Autograph Cards (NoNumber)
Hudson Leick as Callisto (Very Limited) $5.80 - 3 bids
Robert Trebor as Salmoneus (Exclusive Collector Album Card) $4.95 - 1 bid

2001 Rittenhouse Xena: Warrior Princess Season 6 Autograph cards
A7 Hudson Leick as Callisto $13.29 - 4 bids (quite the battle)
A17 Meighan Desmond as Discord $7.95 - 1 bid

Interesting that the Season 6 Callisto autograph looks more hurried and seems to have been done without lifting the pen the cartoon auto looks to have been done with little more concentration with a pen lift between first and last name.

Seller included a bonus card 2001 Rittenhouse Hercules The Complete Journeys Promo card NoNumber
