Saturday 16 May 2015:
2 package day (1 bubble mailer, 1 small VHS sized priority box)

Package 1:
The Box first I'm not going to detail it cause it is over 100 cards Baseball mostly a mix of early 1990s to 2012 approx. It was from let me double check quickly... Yes the name on the inner package told me and double checking stuff online it is from a trade over at Zistle. The guy is in the process of moving so he wanted to get the stuff out quickly. This is a trade I had declined at first because I didn't think I had all the stuff that was listed for my end. Turns out I think I do have most of it. I can wait a little on it cause of his move and because he isn't worried about it. My sending end is a lot smaller only 20 or so cards from around early to mid 80s. They were in team bags 4 bags total filled. Each bag was bookend with one of those advertisement giveaway things from 1988 Topps for the Glossy All-Star Mail in and a contest entry for "Spring Fever Baseball" win a trip to spring training.

Package 2: Bubble Mailer
2 cards from Sportlots same seller two auctions a few days apart. Prices were same: .25 + $2.75 shipping. The seller had delayed on shipping with the first card he said cause something unexpected came up and he couldn't send out. Shipping charges unfortunately were separate since the purchases were the auction style and I think about a week between them.
1981 Topps Baseball: 229 Rollie Fingers Padres - Could have sworn I already had this card but my lists didn't show it and it wasn't in with my other 81 Topps.
2002 Upper Deck Basketball: 403 Michael Jordan Wizards - Yes in Wizards Uniform. His comeback. I am always on the lookout for Jordan Wizards cards.

On Thursday 14 May 2015: I only got two PWEs/small packages. An Ebay Auction and a Sportlots Auction. First the Sportlots because it was Football and I thought I just had baseball stuff here.

Package 1: PWE

174 Jess Richardson Eagles
175 Sam Baker Redskins - Off Center on left edge misscut.

Package 2: PWE taped and folded over some.
21 cards $1.00 + $2.32 shipping.
Um the seller did a no-no cards were loose sandwiched between two toploaders that were taped together with clear package tape not painters tape no team bag Fortunately I didn't have any mishap. I'm sending the seller a message through "ask the seller a question". I'm in a good mood so I won't complain about it too much. I will point out it was a risky move.

Oh the cards: They were all Baseball Phillies from Topps:
(some are dupes for me some not)

On Tuesday 12 May 2015: Another 3 package mailday all three from Ebay.

Package 1:
4 cards $5.99 + $2.32 shipping all in good/very good condition
1956 Topps Baseball:
4 Carlos Paula Nationals
49 Pedro Ramos Nationals (a duplicate for me another Pinholed Pedro this time time pinhole is at the top center edge)
51 Ernie Oravetz Nationals - He looks a lot like Brian Dietzen who plays Jimmy Palmer the MEs assistant on NCIS.
75 Roy Sievers Nationals

Package 2:
one card $1.25 + $2.50 Shipping
2010 Topps Opening Day Baseball: 80 Nick Johnson Marlins Blue #d 0991/2010 - Silly me I already had this card. Wasn't sure so I decided to get it. That is what happens when you watch a card for a very long time on Ebay.

Package 3:
2 cards $1.50 + $1.00 Shipping
1954 Topps World On Wheels:
3 Connaught British Sports Car
4 Buick Toy Tonneau 1910

The seller put in a couple of post cards as a BONUS. I'll have to research them one looks to be a little newer the image looks sort of 30s/40s art deco type but has a zip code and a phone number with an area code so it is more modern. It is for the Hotel Carter in NYC. The other one is from when mailing cost of post cards were just .01¢ for domestic, Canada, Great Britain and Germany 02¢ for Foreign (Great Britain and Germany weren't Foreign then?) It shows the Trinity Building and Broadway.It has a crease across it. Made by the Success Postal Card Co. Publishers NY - card no. 1037 or maybe 1637

On Saturday 09 May 2015: a single package day one card from Ebay $2.10 + $2.32 Shipping
2005 Upper Deck Reflections Baseball: Future Reflections: base
223 Ryan Zimmerman Nationals. The gold foiling on the "Future Reflections" text either didn't get printed properly or has faded in its 10 years of existence. Yeah so I'll probably need to get another one. Personally this one looks like it should have been a "gold" parallel but I don't think they made them like that and it is not serial numbered like a parallel usually is.
