Stuff about my collection
entry Jan 14 2014, 11:33 PM
On Monday 13 January 2014: Here was my cards mailday.

From a Spotlots auction probably my last auction I'll do there since the shipping is never combined on the auctions. They supposedly reduce the shipping some on the auctions but it doesn't look like it. For regular purchases however if you get several things from one seller you can save on the shipping. Anyway two cards two auctions from one seller, it took a little while to get to me since the seller was in Canada (I didn't realize it at the time so high shipping isn't that much of a sin in this case) Shipping was $3.14 (not too bad coming from Canada and sent in a greeting card type envelope not a regular PWE) both cards I got for the minimal opening auction of 0.25
1981 Topps Baseball 550 Tommy John Yankees
1993 Ted Williams Baseball 66 Johnny Mize Yankees

Next we got some cards from a Baseball Group Break over at TCZ My Team The Nationals but I got mostly random stuff.

14 Brian Johnson Red Sox
23 Tyler Gonzales Blue Jays

Then I got my latest issue of Non-Sport Update magazine Vol 25 No. 1 The Walking Dead Cover there were 5 freebie promo cards most of which are elaimo but the freebies are part of the mystique of the magazine.
Freebie Promos:
2013 Rittenhouse Star Trek Movies P2 Spock from "Edge of Darkness"
2013 Cryptozoic The Walking Dead Season 3 NSU 2/2
2014 MhoponhopThe Art of Kevin Seconds Non-Sport Update Promo
2013 Monsterwax Legendary Lovecraft Promo 3
No Date Secret Audio Club Wax Packs P2 of 2 - This thing makes no sense, I think it is some kind of digital card download junk thing that will go no where. I might as well just burn the dang card.
