On Monday 31 Mar 2014: I received a few packages/envelopes.

Got the TCC Chain Package back. This chain is now complete. The cards I'm keeping from it are:
2008-09 Collector's Choice Hockey 172 Sergei Fedorov Capitals
2001-02 Topps Chrome Basketball 40 Chris Webber Kings
2009-10 Topps Basketball: Roundball Remnants RR-CBU Caron Butler Wizards GU all blue incorporated into basketball design of card. Cool looking.
Also the included "2014 Rackrs Autograph Card" The Chipster Bravesfan09 1/1 biggrin.gif

Then from Ebay:
2004 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Baseball: Sweet Lineups 221 Jose Vidro and Nick Johnson Expos Gold 94/99 $3.00 + $3.00 shipping

Also from Ebay:
1978 Topps Baseball 36 Eddie Murray RC Orioles $3.25 + $1.50 shipping

And from SCF a Sale of 4 dumb 1965 Yankees: $25 Delivered
1965 Topps Baseball:
13 Pedro Ramos
30 Jim Bouton
65 Tony Kubek
137 Bouton Wins Again 1964 World Series Game 6

I think I overpaid for those 4 but I jumped at the chance. Someone on a forum actually had some they were willing to sell. The only real pain is I had to send a money order the guy doesn't do Paypal. He would have taken a check but the wait would have been longer since he would wait for the check to clear first. As it is it took about a week and a half from the date I mailed the MO to today the receiving date. I almost thought the guy wasn't going to send, even though it was an official transaction on that forum.

On Saturday 22 Mar 2014 I got a package from a trade that helps on my 1988 Topps Baseball and 2011 Topps Baseball Opening Day set builds. I haven't logged them in toe Zistle yet, or even inventoried them Yet. I have just looked at them and put them in the blog congestion area for inventorying, scanning, blogging etc...
I still need to send out my end of the trade I have it packaged up now and waiting to be taken to the post office or UPS store next Saturday. Maybe I'll have a couple of other packages to go with it.
