On Monday 11 May 2015: I had a very nice 3 package day.

Package 1:
All the way from Canada eh? From a member over at the Trading Card Database known by Drowzee Insomniac. He sent some cards my way and in return in his words "Nothing. I am trying to pass these cards on to someone who wants them." There were 10 cards total from the 1992 Impel U.S. Olympic Hopefuls:
1 Jay Barrs Archery
8 Charles Barkley Men's Basketball
13 Karl Malone Men's Basketball
50 KimZmeskal Gymnastics
58 Stephane Maxwell-Pierson Rowing
62 Robert Foth Shooting
73 David Wharton Swimming
83 Mary Joe Fernandez Tennis
96 Jeff Campbell Water Polo
104 Matt Ghaffari Wrestling

Package 2:
a single card Ebay purchase .99¢ + $2.19 shipping
2005 NFL Legends Football 37 Billy Kilmer Redskins Yeah you don't see many Kilmer cards.

Package 3: Probably the best of the bunch.
A single card from an Ebay purchase for just $8.00 Free Shipping
2015 ACEO Sketch Print by artist Anthony Douglas a Bryce Harper Nationals portrait print #d 9/25 signed on the back by the artist in pencil I think. Amazing image I will have to scan when I can and post all over the place here and on my Curly W Blog

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.

From Ebay on Tuesday 28 April 2015: A deck of playing cards came in $4.74 Free Shipping Lady Bligh Spiced Rum Playing Cards. Seems to be some kind of sister brand to Captain Morgan Spiced Rum. Lady Bligh comes in three flavors Regular Spiced Rum, Coconut Rum, and Cherry Spiced Rum. I think the deck I got the other day the Blackheart rum Playing cards might be an imitator to Lady Bligh. I don't know the liquor business well enough to know. I just like the logos which is why I got the decks. Plus they were cheap enough.

Package 8:

2004 Inkworks Charmed Connections Promo Card Piper CC-UK
Weird listing “location” was United States, but it came from the UK. Upon closer examination the listing description says:
“Domestic postage to the UK in this auction is up to $50 in value, Recorded Delivery $2.50, over $50 Special Delivery $8 International Postage to anywhere outside the UK is International signed for service $8 over $50 in value $12.

I didn’t pay attention to that part, no biggie since the shipping cost was reasonable and it was delivered quickly enough. Shows you have to check more than just the “location”. The seller is either a huge international seller, or is pulling a fast one over Ebay getting around some kind of shipping costs/rules.
