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 a select few of the cards starting with a handful of Skins:

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.
1965 Topps Baseball: 295 Dick Radatz Red Sox $4.50

Mail Day Catch-Up November 2017 Part 2

Fri 10 Nov 2017:
Package 1: Small package from SCF Football Team Traders Wayne the Bengals guy. He sent 20 cards evenly split 10 Rams/10 Redskins some in their college unis. I had to look up a couple of the guys up because they are/were recent drafts and I wasn't sure which team they were on. That is a big reason I hate the college cards they often don't mention the pro team they are drafted on because they make the cards FOR the Draft BEFORE it happens.

1961 Post Baseball 99 Camilio Pascual Minneapolis Twins former Washington Senators. Doing a little research I have to look for more of these the Minneapolis cards were on the boxes and the Minnesota cards were the direct from the company perforated sheets.

Hey that is it for September. Now here is the first of October.

Tuesday 03 Oct 2017: a single PWE from a somewhat surprise source. Over the weekend I had noticed I had a private message from Facebook messenger. It was from a guy named George from one of the Frank Howard Facebook groups I follow and participate in. He mentioned he had some doubles of of some Hondo cards. So I told him I needed two, one I might have had years ago but somehow didn't seem to have currently. So in a RAoC (Random Act of Cardness) he gifted me two Hondo cards:
1964 Topps Baseball: 371 Frank Howard Dodgers
1969 Topps Baseball: 170 Frank Howard Senators.
The '69 one I could have sworn I had a few years back but I didn't have it marked on my TCDB list.

Pakage 2: 22 vintage cards from auctions shipping was $8.52 robbery since they are auctions and Sportlots doesn't usually combine shipping for auctions. It is better to buy from the stores. The two 1965 cards were 75 the rest of the cards including the two lots of eight 1967 Topps cards were all 25 I think the 1965 cards were upped by the same buyer it might have been a shill but I have bought from this seller before so might have just been a coincidence that the same buyer attempted to get the two cards for 50

ON Tuesday 05 Sep 2017: I got 3 envelopes/packages all from Sportlots auctions So I don't need to mention where they came from. Most were the standard opening 25 bid. Even though at least one package was a PWE for simplicity I will call all 3 a "package" even if none of them actually were a true package. Actually I think one was a cardboard envelope like you would mail CDs or "floppy discs" in a small square "photograph" envelope I guess.

Package 1: 7 cards 2 auctions 1 single football and 1 lot of 6 baseball cards. Both auctions bid was the standard 25 bid Shipping for all was $3.54

Special Edition: 3 card Mail Day plus an in person 4 binder collection Haul

ON Friday 01 Sep 2017:
I got a special haul of cards. To back up slightly For a few years now on the First Friday of each month I get together with some friends at their house and a mutual friend joins us. Their oldest son, one of two, who is in his early to mid 30s now used to collect trading cards. Not sure if the other son collected or not. So what seems like just a couple of years ago, is actually 4 years ago, they gave me the bulk of their son's cards from around the typical junk wax years Mostly early 1990s. I blogged about it here. I don't know if the son has even thought about his old hobby, or as I said back in that post if he is even aware that his old collection is gone, now completely gone. Anyway with that first haul I was told there might be some more cards, but they weren't sure, about 2 years ago a binder or two showed up, and to my surprise a few weeks ago the "final" batch was uncovered and given to me over this Labor Day weekend. A healthy mix of baseball and football cards were in three 3 inch binders. Plus there was a thinner binder. I originally thought of it as a "Trapper Keeper", but this thing is just a 1 inch binder with a Velcro flap. This smaller binder held some non-sport cards. To be exact it has an incomplete set of 1994 Fleer Ultrra Beavis and Butthead cards. Hahahahahaha. I didn't do a complete count, but they are organized by number and there was even a "Cards Needed" checklist on a piece of notebook paper. Not sure if I've going to try to complete the set or not. Over the years I have thought about it.

One time I used to have a nine-card promo sheet of the set from one of the Non-Sport Card Magazines (I think it was Card Collector's Price Guide) that would often include those 9 card promo sheets I ended up selling it on Ebay some years ago. That would have been a nice compliment to the set if I had ever pursued it.

Also there was a 25 sheet pack of 9 pocket binder pages from Mega Cards with the free Conlon Collection card in it. This one has a 1992 colorized #12 Carl Hubbell card. Moving on.

Saturday 02 Sep 2017:
