On Saturday 05 March 2016: I got two packages both from members of the Trading Card Database (http://www.tradingcarddb.com/). One was a bunch of cards for my PC. I don't think there is an expected return of cards, but one never knows. EEK I my trading card debt is building up. The other was a purchase.

First Package was a lot of Hockey Cards about 32 in all plus a Capitals Team sticker (oval about 5 inches wide) and the following cards:

2nd Package is way cool: For just ten bucks + shipping of $3.74 I got the 1953 Washington Nationals Yearbook It is in pretty good shape, probably from "fair to good" I'd say. Has some edge ware with bitty bits taken out. Cover is still on a little loose maybe not still on. Pages of course are yellow with age. Has a slight musty smell. Oh plus the seller TCDB Member included 4 Orioles cards.

1 card from Sportlots auction .25˘ + $3.00 shipping
1971 Topps Baseball: 5 Thurman Munson - Way Off center almost miscut to top: Front team name is at top edge. Back card number and top of bio box on top edge, bottom edge has uninked cardboard strip. I jumped at the chance to get this. My high bid was $10 I think. I would have fought tooth and nail for this card. I've seen it go for obscene prices for almost any condition.

3rd Package: a book from Ebay $5.58 Free Shipping. Paperback Used copy. "You Gotta Have Heart" Frederic J. Frommer. A history of Washington Baseball from 1859 to 2012. Previously used at public library, I hadn't noticed originally that it was a library copy. I knew it was used but oh well it isn't beat up like some library copies get. I was confused a little by the auction listing about having no CD. The seller is a book seller that has a standard template for their listings so some information is just shown on every listing even if it doesn't apply to the specific book you are buying. That mildly annoys me by showing that they are in fact listing so many things they don't check on some specifics of their listings.
