ON Friday 22 Aug 2014: I got a lone package. A small priority mail box from Ebay for $39.95 + $5.00 (a deal for this particular set which I've seen often start at twice as much)
2012 Rittenhouse Warehouse 13: Season 3 26 card Base Set.
My beefs with these Warehouse 13 sets from Season 2 on is the base set is only 26 cards (2 card per episode it seems) that are limited to only 250 or so they say.

At first I was disappointed at least for the Season 3 set that they printed the back of the card upside down from the front but actually come to think of it when they are in an album oriented so that the top of the card is on the left of the page they will flip correctly.

Now I need to get Seasons 2 and 4 part one they haven't printed a part 2 yet that I know of or a Season 5 (the final season) yet.

On Monday 11 August 2014: I got one lone card from an Ebay auction for $6.99 Free Shipping.
2009 Upper Deck Heroes Football: Purple Parallel 216 Merlin Olsen Rams #d 10/10

I have an orange parallel #d/35 of this card incoming. Should get here in a day or two. Thought it would be here today Tuesday. It is coming from CA and left there on the 9th according to the tracking #.

The odd thing about this Purple one is the listing was a little confusing: The Auction title said it was the purple parallel and the picture agreed but the description mentioned it was an Orange #d/35 parallel. I gambled that it was a case of the seller using the same generic description for all his cards and only changing the title and maybe the picture. I was right this time. Not a gamble I want to take too often but in this case I felt pretty good about it.

On Monday 04 August 2014: I had a three package mailday (one TCC Group Box Break winnings, 1 sportlots auction win (2 auctions one seller) and one Ebay card)

I made a video for each package as I opened them and posted on youtube (my ID there is klandersen42) each video title starts with "mailday04aug2014..."

This was from one seller 2 auction wins both were .25¢ only real complaint was it was sent in a PWE and they charged $5.00 for something that cost them .49¢ to mail. UGH. At least they were sandwiched in card board in a penny sleeve (which was taped shut but fortunately they had paper between the cards and tape.) Anyway the cards:

297 Deron Johnson Phillies
