On Saturday 26 Apr 2014: I got a single package a kind of big one since it was a hug lot of cards from sportlots for .025¢ +$8 shipping I got a box of aprox. 410 (I counted about 411) Orioles mostly late 80s and early 90s. The oldest ones were from 1981 and the newest one was a 2003. Not many Super Stars but there were a few Eddie Murrays (just one I think with it's dupe), a Cal Ripken (fleer 97?) and a Jim Palmer (K-Mart AS got it already). I haven't sorted to confirm everything yet.

From sportlots got the 1971 Topps Baseball 336 Tigers Team card I was supposed to get (on Monday I had gotten the wrong card from the dealer the item # was off by one number. I will send back the wrong card tomorrow Saturday my first chance to get to the post office) .25¢ +$1.50 shipping

From Ebay first I got 4 cards for $11.45 Free Shipping

Got some Sportlots auction stuff and some Ebay ladies.

First the Sportlots stuff.

Oops one dealer goofed he sent me the wrong card (the auction # is off by one nuber) I was supposed to get 1971 Topps 336 Tigers team card .25 +$1.50 postage instead I got 1965 Topps 594 Joe Gaines Astros.

?I went over 10 days without anything? I guess so. Wait how did I skip this one? On
17 April 2014 : I got a heck of a steal from Ebay to help with my Strive For '65 set build. For $5.95 + $2.00 shipping I got 1965 Topps Baseball card #400Harmon Killebrew Twins I thought I might end up having to pay more for that card before I found that deal.

OH almost forgot about pack 2: Switching to Baseball
From John Miller a blogger (I can't recall his blog just yet: Update: its Johnny's Trading Spot duh) I read many blogs and make many more comments on them and enter many a contest. Well this I think was part of a contest or straight give-away not sure as I found an email I had sent to him mentioning a braves card I was sending his way. UPDATE: I sent one of his wantlist/needs Braves cards his way. Anyway he sent ten Expos/Nationals/Curly W cards. They were in a PWE but in a 3 pocket row cut from a 9 pocket plastic binder sleeve. Not the greatest protection but a clever idea. So here they are Expos first, but in no particular overall order:
1991 U.S. Playing Card Co. - Baseball Major League All-Stars K of Clubs Ivan Calderon Expos
2002 Donruss Fan Club140 Orlando Cabrera Expos
2003 Donruss: Rated Rookie57 Ron Galloway Expos
1992 Donruss 48 Ivan Calderon Expos
1993 The Sporting News: Conlon Collection 682 General Crowder Senators
2001 Upper Deck Decade 1970's
68 Gary Carter Expos
100 Rookie Flashback Gary Carter Expos
2012 Topps Baseball 503 Tyler Clippard Nationals
2013 Topps Baseball 136 Tyler Clippard Nationals
2007 Upper Deck Series 1 463 Ryan Church Nationals

Oh plus while I was at the home of my friends who back in July of last year (wow it was that long ago?) I had gotten a small box and 3 binders of cards from when their son collected cards in the mid-1990s (A Collection Acquisition) they gave me two more boxes of cards. I think this might be the last of the collection I've looked at one of the boxes and like the previous haul is a mix of the 4 major sports (Baseball, Football, Basketball and even Hockey this time) plus some multi-sport "Sports Illustrated for Kids" cards and a handful of Superhero cards.
