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:

OK I got a bit behind this month. I was on vacation the first week of the month (from 28 June to 02 July) so I had my mail held until Saturday 05 July. So this covers maildays from late June Until around Tuesday 08 July 2014. I don't recall all the specifics price wise or exact mailing days.

Before I left I had two of those pink you have a package" notices. One slip was for a huge box of random basketball cards for my team lots giveaway bait. I have since also gotten a large box of baseball cards as well.

The other slip was for a flat box that stumped me about what the contents were, but it was from "Five Tool Collector" Commishbob. He had emailed me that he had something for me. It turned out to be an 11x17 2014 Topps Don Zimmer is My Hero poster. Bob had purchased a Brooks Robinson is My Hero poster and Topps sent him the Zimmer as well but only charged him for the Robinson one. Very cool geste on Bob's part.

I also got Issue 284 of The Wrapper - 1959 Paladin (Rinso Soap) cover.

The break was a baseball break of the following boxes: 1990 Pacific Baseball Legends, 1989, 1990 and 1991 Swell Baseball Greats. I bought the Twins (and old-time Senators) and Expos (Nats - but since the products were pre-2005 it was only Expos): He tossed in bonus 1975 SSPC cards and since there weren't too many Expos he tossed in the Pilots (that he noticed I collected from my blog) since the Brewers hadn't sold.
