Monday 12 Jun 17:

The first part of my landslide Sportlots order. 7 packages (5 PWEs, 2 small bubble mailers) A combination of PC stuff and some trade stuff making a quick turn around. Since everything is from Sportlots I won't bother mentioning that is where they came from. I am expecting 5 more packages from this order.

Package 1: 2 cards both 18˘ Shipping $1.50
1993 Leaf Triple Play Baseball: 108 Tim Raines White Sox
1995 Donruss Baseball: 42 Juan Gonzalez Rangers

519 Andy Benes Padres
2011 Topps Baseball: Topps Town: TT-2 Dan Haren Angels
1986 Reprint of 1895 Mayos Cut Plug NNO Ed Cartwright Senators

That last one I knew was a reprint, it was sold as a reprint and listed that way at Sportlots. I didn't realize the originals had black blank backs. The Reprint is white back and has "Mayo Cut Plug Reprint 1986" on the back in two lines. I was a little disappointed. I was expecting something similar to the more recent Topps Mayo Retro cards that had a back style similar to the A&G backs. Ironic that the most expensive card in the batch so far is a reprint of antique vintage. I got it mostly cause he is a Washington Player and the second Senator to hit for the cycle (http://curlywcards.blogspot.com/2017/05/get-on-your-bikes-and-ride.html most of the stats I got from wikipedia).

Package 5: 3 cards at 18˘ Shipping $2.85
1995 Donruss Baseball: 248 Tom Glavine Braves
2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces Baseball: 54 Yogi Berra Yankees, Jackie Robinson Dodgers - last card needed to complete the set. Yay! Wasn't sure if I actually had the card because my blogs indicate I still needed it.
