Got a card from Panini from an EXPIRED Redemption. In a group break in early July (got my cards on 09 July 2013) I had gotten a redemption card that had expired 06 January 2013. Figured at the least they would tell me it was expired and not send anything, but they did they actually sent what was promised. So the card I received about 2 months later was:
2010-11 (copyrighted 2011) Panini Zenith Hockey 188 Marcus Johansson Capitals on card auto blue sharpie #d 843/999

Got some cards from a reader (Tom at Angels In Order blog) of my blog CaptKirk42s Card Blog he sent a batch of cards from the 1993 Ted Williams Baseball set. Those familiar with the 1993 and 1994 Ted Willaims Sets from the Ted Williams Card Company know that it is a commemorative set that mixes many of the classic vintage Hall of Famers and Pioneers of Baseball with some contemporary players. Some of the cards I got have guys like: Tris Speaker, Yogi Berra, Carl Yastrzemski, Warren Span, Willie Stargell, Earl Weaver and several other big baseball stars. Here are the numbers I got:
2, 3, 7, 25, 26, 30,35, 46, 48, 54, 58, 67, 70,72, 74, 81, 82, 85, 86, 97, 105, 106, 107, 108, 115, 121, 122, 124, 125, 128, 129, 130, 141, 143, 144, 145, 146, 147, 149, 150, 160

Saturday 17 August 2013: Two card day the first was in regular bubble mailer from an Ebay BIN $7.50 + $.3.00 shipping well worth the shipping price.
2010 Rittenhouse Warehouse 13 Season 1 NNO Autograph Susan Hogan as Jeannie Bering on-card blue sharpie (like all of the autos in this series)

The other card I'm kind of ticked off, both in what it actually is, but I didn't pay too much for the card itself. I am ticked about the shipping cost vs. HOW it was shipped. It was from sportlots (Kings of the PWE) and this thing was shipped in a PWE the card "secure" in soft cardboard (light card cardstock type cardboard not the big corragated stuff) I gave the seller a "Neutral" and said "High shipping for a PWE w/no toploader. Hopefully the guy will get the hint on that. The cost? For the card it was only $1.25 on one of the sportlots 1,2,3 auctions opening bid, not too bad, the shipping however $5.00 should have been sent in a bubble mailer NOT a PWE with just a soft cardboard "sleeve" (like index card stock or cereal box stock cardboard) that was taped closed. The card was in nothing no penny sleeve no toploader. The PWE was just a standard #10 business envelope (9.5" x 4.125"). The card is a Michael Jordan Baseball "White Sox" (He played in their minor league system for a season or two) by an unknown maker, the Front (I should have looked better at) looks like a 1986 Topps Baseball except no card logo and it is glossy. At first I thought maybe a special box topper, the back is a powder blue background with black text. The weird thing is the stats on the back are his NBA stats 1984-1990 then a statement that says if his stats were converted to baseball the would look like and then they have a baseball stat line for what his Basketball Stats would be like if they were converted to Baseball Stats. Very Weird. I"ll just chock this one down to an Fun OddBall card with no real value. I did see online one of these being auctioned off for $14.24 knocked down from $14.99.
