ON Friday 27 Jan 2017: I got the box from my order of some commemorative sets from Fritsch Cards. Most of them seem to be their "custom" commemorative sets Any who here is what I got:

1981 Topps Coca-Cola Football Washington Redskins Team set 12 cards (11 players 1 title card) $19.95
Fritsch Cards AAGPBL Complete Set - 3 series plus update series $34.95
1995 Series One 234 cards
1996 Series Two 106 cards
2000 Series Three 72 cards
2002 Update Series 9 cards
Series 2 and 3 come in their own special set boxes, series one is just in a generic file card box along with the update set. Would be nice if I could find the Series one box sometime if they ever made one. Hard to get since the original source doesn't even sell them like the later sets.

These next sets commemorate the St. Louis Browns (who later became the Baltimore Orioles) These are the sets I didn't have production years for at first. I found them with a little internet searching. The 1953 50th Anniversary set and the 1944 AL Champions set are later year commemorative sets NOT Vintage or reprints of vintage sets. They are based on vintage designs. The Heads Up set is similar to the Washington Senators 1969 Team Reunion set I got a year or two ago. The size of the Original 1933 Goudey cards.

1998 St. Louis Browns Heads Up Reunion Set 20 cards $9.95
2003 St. Louis Browns 50th Anniversary of 1953 Team Set 40 cards $9.95
1996 St. Louis Browns 1944 American League Champions Set 36 cards $9.95

On Thursday 26 Jan 2017: One single small bubble mailer from SCF Football Team Trader Frank the Raiders guy. From our trade from a month or two ago. I was stumped because I thought all my trades were caught up. Anyway it was ALL REDSKINS a total of 89 cards (4 dupes, 2 triplicates = 75 unique cards)

1991 Pro Set Football: All-NFC Team 381 Jim Lachey - these All Pro cards Have very nice portraits of the players.

1991 Upper Deck Football: 102 Jim Lachey - very cool closeup photo of him in huddle? showing the wear on the stripe decals on the front of his helmet.

2004 Fleer Tradition Football: 196 LaVar Arrington
2004 Topps Football: 172 Tim Hasselbeck - another Skin with the Anniversary Retro Arrow helmet. Hard to tell on the photo as it is head on and the arrows look like light reflections. I wasn't sure at first.
2006 Topps Heritage Football: (1952 Baseball Style) 112 Taylor Jacobs
2013 Panini Certified Football: New Generation Rookie Autograph: Red Mirror Variant: 285 Chris Thompson RC sticker auto blue sharpie 264/999 - Even though this is a very PC card I know of a certain collector who will eventually get this card. I am looking at some Ebay auctions and COMC for other copies of this beaut.

1962 Topps Baseball: 90 Jim Piersall Senators

Saturday 07 Jan 2017: SCF Football Team Traders Mike Da Bears Guy small priority box. He was low on Redskins and football so he sent my secondary Baseball Nationals. The batch was mostly Nationals with a few Redskins no Rams. Approx. 220 Card count includes 20 Redskins. Hmm smell kind of soapy. Maybe they spent time in a box with some Avon stuff. Hehe. Oh one thing he did which is different for the most part the Nats cards seemed to be in alphabetic order by player. Not exact order but close at times.
Selected highlights:
1990 Pro Set Football: 325 Charles Mann Redskins - Had this card and some of the other Skins from this set as well. One or two I might not have had. I might be close to having a team set from this set. Not sure.
