On Monday 13 April 2015: I got 2 packages one was a bubble mailer in my mailbox and the other was a treasure box waiting on the doormat by my apartment door.

The bubble mailer was an Ebay win of a 1970 Topps Football Glossy Insert 2 Johnny Unitas Colts - $4.49 + $2.32 shipping

The other was a treasure box with a mix of cards from my PC teams and some 90s baseball from Blogger Bo Rosny in his mega trade-a-thon. Now I need to check out his blog to figure out what to send his way.

For the fun of it today early very early in the morning Saturday 28 March 2015: I opened a pack of 2014 Topps Heritage Baseball: from one of those 20 pack fairfield boxes that Target carries. I didn't get anything special except a Homie Team card (sort of it's one of those league leaders cards that sometimes is not included in team sets) I am building the base set, like most of the Heritage sets.

There are 9 cards per pack:
I already placed the cards in numerical order so this is not the order pulled although the first card is still the same:

10 NL 2013 Pitching Leaders: Adam Wainwright Cardinals, Jordan Zimmermann Nationals, Clayton Kershaw Dodgers
59 Adam Lind Blue Jays
131 Joe Girardi Yankees MGR
172 Ivan Nova Yankees
176 J.B. Shuck Angels
313 Yonder Alonso Padres
328 Jeremy Hellickson Rays
370 Matt Kemp Dodgers
434 Pedro Alvarez Pirates

On Friday 27 March 2015: I got one bubble package and 1 small 200ct box.

The Box was from a Sportlots order/auction of almost 200 1980 Topps Baseball I counted 193 the listing does say it was almost 200 but didn't give an exact count. It also said "Sorry no Rickey" I'm guessing that would be Mr. Henderson's RC. I think I have that one not 100% sure. Anyway the lot was $2.75 and shipping $7.99 (actual shipping was $5 something so eah.) I haven't done an exact inventory/cataloging but there are some doubles and possibly triples or more. Most are in pretty good almost NM shape if not NM a bit musty smelling though, I thought it was a smokey smell. OH well that will leave with time. I think it was mostly the cold weather that was making it smell.

The other package was from Ebay 3 auctions from the same seller individually the shipping was originally $2.00 each but combined shipping was only $2.50 I got them for .99&@162; each. 7 cards total 2 lots of 3 cards and one individual the individual card I'll list first

1961 Fleer Baseball Greats:
120 Nap Lajoie

3 card Cardinals lot:
1961 Topps Baseball:
438 Curt Flood Cardinals
1965 Topps Baseball:
100 Ken Boyer Cardinals
1969 Topps Baseball:
432 Bob Gibson AS Cardinals (puzzle back with Pete Rose face)

3 card 1962 Post Cereal Baseball Los Angeles Angels Lot:
OK this sort of makes me a little sad I didn't read the auction completely when I haphazardly bid on this. I didn't notice the comment about the conditions of the backs I'll note what is what on each card. **Sigh**

76 Eddie Yost - Back: All four corners have some paper pieces glued where the card had been glued in some sort of album
78 Abie Pearson - Back: Has writing on back in red marker ink? says "Lynn Ramseyer" either a boy named Lynn, which is possible but uncommon or this card had belonged to a girl. The latter might be the answer as the writing is sort of neat but still looks like it is from a child's hand.
79 Ken Hunt - Back: Same as the Yost card except maybe a little more of the plain white paper it was attached to.

On Thursday 26 March 2015: I got three packages (1 small bubble mailer, 1 PWE and one large envelope/package). 2 were from sportlots purchases and 1 was an ebay)

Package 1: PWE two cards in card saver (no tape thankfully) in penny sleeves (again thankfully) shipping was a standard $2.00 sportlots high for a PWE **SIGH**
1958 Topps Baseball: 219 Camilo Pascual Senators .25
1968 Topps Baseball: 72 Tommy John White Sox .75

Package 2: bubble mailer 15 cards in team bag sandwiched between two nice cardboard pieces. The two cardboard pieces were the only things taped. An OK job. Sportlots auction purchase $5.50 + $2.25 shipping: 1970s Hostess Hand Cut cards. Some of them are very badly cut, but most are OK otherwise. The bad cuts remind me of when I had some of these cards, not sure if I had these exact players but my cutting skills as a kid were awful, left-handed trying to use regular scissors or trying to cut right-handed.

1975 Hostess Baseball:
136 Ken Henderson White Sox
137 Willie Montanez Phillies
138 Thurman Munson Yankees

1976 Hostess Baseball:
126 Larry Parrish Expos - Nicely cut, unfortunately the card number on the back was marked out with black magic marker and speared some. That is the type of thing I might have done as a kid.

1978 Hostess Baseball:
7 Tommy John Dodgers
8 Greg Luzinski Phillies
9 Enos Cabell Astros
10 Doug DeCinces Orioles
12 Ed Halicki Giants
16 Earl Williams A's
17 Glenn Abbott Mariners
18 Dan Ford Twins

1979 Hostess Baseball:
67 Rick Reuschel Cubs
68 George Brett Royals
69 Lou Piniella Yankees

Package 3: This last package is a work of art. Very strange packaging. I am definitely going to put it on my card blog with scans. First it was from an Ebay auction 1 card $4.99 + $2.32 shipping. OK first the card:
1961 Topps Baseball: 472 Yogi Berra Yankees MVP

Now the odd thing about the packaging: The envelope was 9" x 12" yellow clasp envelope. Super taped with clear shipping tape that I had to cut an opening at the top to get it open. Inside that a piece of cardboard (white sort of odd triangular piece not sure what it originally boxed). Next to that, I forget if it was taped or not, a clear ziplock plastic bag 6" x 11" has red lettering "AdoptaPlatoon www.adoptaplatoon.org" strange. Stranger still in the bag a paper bag that was folded and taped some. The paper bag from Burger King "Bags of Flavor" with hand scribbled "yogi berra" barely legible. Inside that a small plain white PWE (4x6) with one fold not sealed or taped surprisingly. Then the card safe in a toploader with penny sleeve.

I did leave possitive feedback because other than the strange overly excessive packaging it was a smooth transaction with safely delivered card. My feedback reads "Good Service. Strange packaging for one card but everything is good"

In all he sent 46 cards about half were Nationals and the other half Expos The years ranged from 1980 Topps to 2015 Topps with some double and some triples so 38 unique cards in all. Some I already had but there were a few I needed. Players include: Andre Dawson, 1 Gary Carter, Jose Vidro, Brian Schneider, Chad Cordero, Matt Chico, Austin Kearns, Ryan Zimmerman, Ivan Rodriguez, Tyler Clippard and Jordan Zimmermann.
