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
