I have been very backed up with mail days from as early as May? UGH thought it was only from 02 June. It includes a couple of bricks (aka small box) that have just way too many cards to mention individually. Some things might not be totally accurate and I’m too lazy to check the shipping on my Sportlots orders so some I will forgo my usual listing of total shipping.

OK so on with the show:

Saturday 15 May 2016:
Pack from Tribecards Blog his Pack-A-Daily Circus Giveaway thing. It has my batch of cards from 2014 PAD and the first part of 2016 cards. Most of this giveaway thing is drafted things. For 2014 and ’15 I think it was just which players or type of random card you drafted, for this year 2016 your first drafts were a specific team and this year you get the team, then whatever your draft later in the year. It is a fun thing to watch on his blog.

On Thursday 28 April 2016: a single PWE brought 2 cards from a couple of Sportlots auctions. Both were had for opening .25¢ bid plus shipping was $1.50 + .50¢ = $2.50 Total Shipping.

1971 Topps Baseball:
566 Tim Cullen Senators
573 Ed Kranepool Mets

entry Apr 27 2016, 10:15 PM
27 April 2016: Got almost 2 dozen VINTAGE cards (19) from one seller from 7 auctions 4 auctions I got for the opening .25¢ (12 cards total), 1 for $2.25 (1 card), 1 for $1.25 (1 card) and 1 for $4.75 (5 cards) shipping total was $15.98 (shipping prices were .59¢, .99¢ and $1.99

The cards:
1967 Philadelphia Football: 120 New York Giants Logo Team Card (the $2.25 auction)

1969 Topps Baseball:
12 NL Strikeout Leaders: Bob Gibson Cardinals, Fergie Jenkins Cubs, Bill Singer Dodgers
46 Fritz Peterson Yankees
72 Ron Taylor Mets
127 Kevin Collins Mets
143 Joe Nossek Athletics
195 John Odom Athletics
217 John Donaldson Athletics
313 Bill Robinson Yankees

1982 Kellogg's 3-D Super Stars Baseball: (Five of these were the $4.75 auction) No cracks, a bit curled but no cracks ah the rubbery feel of these cards.

52 Chris Chambliss Braves
57 Dwayne Murphy Athletics

The main masterpiece of this haul: got it for the opening .25¢ + .59¢ shipping (individual shipping is sort of moot at this point)
1965 Topps Baseball:
169 Dave Vineyard Orioles

Adds one more card to my only 1/3 of the way complete "Strive for '65" set build that I started at the beginning of 2014. Well actually since as long as I can remember but my determination to complete the set for the 50th (which I failed) I am still trying to achieve.

On Monday 25 April 2016: I got one PWE from a Sportlots store purchase. One card for .18¢ + .80¢ shipping
2003 Topps Bazooka Baseball: 7 Bazooka Joe Pirates. Now my base Joe Sub-Set is almost complete just need the Cardinals card. Then I can hunt for the 25 minis I need and the complete 30 Silver parallels I need. The bad think about this PWE is it was shipped using a "saver" with instead of tape a small little white filing label that has a code number on it.

Then on Wednesday 20 April 2016 a package was waiting by my door my custom jersey from the MLB Shop. I finally bit the bullet on what I consider a super high price for jerseys. I'd rather have paid about a 1/4 of what I did but whatever. It is a Nationals Home White Jersey #42 with "Capt Kirk" as the name on the back.

OK here is a few days maildays catch ups

On Wednesday 13 April 2016: a box arrived not cards related but Baseball related. Part of my order from MLB Shop some Nats Gear. A Nationals hat Olive 59Fifty fitted with the MLB logo on the back. It is a little darker than I thought it would be. I also got a long sleeve (2/3 sleeves) baseball jersey style t-shirt gray and blue with Washington Senators on it. I really dig the baseball J-Tees, always have. I plan on making a post about these soon on my Curly W Cards blog.

Onto the cards:
Thursday 14 April 2016: 3 PWEs from Sportlots orders/auctions:

PWE 1: Sportlots regular order 4 cards $1.65 shipping
2003 Topps Bazooka Baseball 7 Bazooka Joe Phillies.18¢
2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Baseball:
193 Don Gay Rodeo Rider .75¢
198 Kent Hrbek Twins $2.50
206 Ken Shamrock Martial Arts $1.50

PWE 2: Sportlots regular order 2 cards $1.50 shipping
2011 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Baseball 51 Hope Solo Women' Soccer (2) .36¢ - I forgot I had ordered 2 of this card I should send one out for a TTM Auto I guess

PWE 3: Sportlots regular order 2 cards Shippiner .98¢ (marked as .49¢ each)
1981 Kellogg's 3-D Baseball: 2 Jim Palmer Orioles .18¢
2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Baseball 209 Rick Cerone Yankees $1.95

Cards were in a card "saver" with tape on it UGH, but fortunately both were also in a penny sleeve with the opening at the bottom of the "saver"s pocket to help protect them. So an OK catch but still a little dangerous.

For the 2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Baseball: I just need one more card now #195 Gaylord Perry Giants

Friday 15 April 2016: TAX DAY! Sportlots regular order 1 card .59¢ + .75¢ shipping
