Medium Flat Rate USPS Priority Mail Box from SCF Football Team Trader Jamie the Texans guy. Yes it was a Medium Flat Rate Box filled with, mostly Rams cards plus 73 Redskins cards. The Rams cards were 90% of the cards in there. Most from the last 5-10 years. Many dupes Way way too many cards to list all even by the
numbers. There were two card boxes about 11 inches long (1100 count?) . Plus the rest of the box filled with cards in team bags. About 30 or so team bags. It is a ton of cards. There were even 3 misplaced cards two cards of guys in college uniforms one a Bill the other a Colt. Both those cards showed the team at least on the back of the card. I don't think either had ever been a Ram or Redskin, and then there was a misplaced baseball card of a Marlin.

Here are I think the top 3 cards duplicated in the huge batch. The first one maybe not quite a dozen, the second one at least a dozen actually there might some parallels a base version and a "first edition" version and the 3rd on over a dozen maybe up to 20.
2013 Panini Rookies & Stars Football: 6 Steven Jackson Falcons still in Rams Uniform
2008 Upper Deck First Edition Football: 131 Pisa Tinoisamoa - some of these might be the regular base version maybe not the First Edition. I didn't think about that and I'm too lazy to check back.

?Sunday 17 Dec 2017: Or was it really Saturday 16 Dec?: I Had a USPS flat rate envelope show up at my door on Sunday. I'm pretty sure it had been with a neighbor and they put it at my door. (on my blog in my "Strive for '65 Saturday" post I mentioned the story of last year with 2 packages I never got) I don't recall the USPS delivering on Sundays, but I heard a rumor during the holidays they would be doing that so maybe. Anyway it was a 4 "card" order from Sportlots. One of the cards was for the
Bloggers Secret Santa thing hosted by Matt at "Bob Walk The Plank". Shipping was only 85¢ Like I said on my blog I mentiond the 1965 Topps Baseball card.
