?I went over 10 days without anything? I guess so. Wait how did I skip this one? On
17 April 2014 : I got a heck of a steal from Ebay to help with my Strive For '65 set build. For $5.95 + $2.00 shipping I got 1965 Topps Baseball card #400Harmon Killebrew Twins I thought I might end up having to pay more for that card before I found that deal.

OH almost forgot about pack 2: Switching to Baseball
From John Miller a blogger (I can't recall his blog just yet: Update: its Johnny's Trading Spot duh) I read many blogs and make many more comments on them and enter many a contest. Well this I think was part of a contest or straight give-away not sure as I found an email I had sent to him mentioning a braves card I was sending his way. UPDATE: I sent one of his wantlist/needs Braves cards his way. Anyway he sent ten Expos/Nationals/Curly W cards. They were in a PWE but in a 3 pocket row cut from a 9 pocket plastic binder sleeve. Not the greatest protection but a clever idea. So here they are Expos first, but in no particular overall order:
1991 U.S. Playing Card Co. - Baseball Major League All-Stars K of Clubs Ivan Calderon Expos
2002 Donruss Fan Club140 Orlando Cabrera Expos
2003 Donruss: Rated Rookie57 Ron Galloway Expos
1992 Donruss 48 Ivan Calderon Expos
1993 The Sporting News: Conlon Collection 682 General Crowder Senators
2001 Upper Deck Decade 1970's
68 Gary Carter Expos
100 Rookie Flashback Gary Carter Expos
2012 Topps Baseball 503 Tyler Clippard Nationals
2013 Topps Baseball 136 Tyler Clippard Nationals
2007 Upper Deck Series 1 463 Ryan Church Nationals

On Friday 04 April 2014: (My birthday BTW) I got an Ebay package. For $1.99 + $3.50 shipping I got 1973 Topps Baseball NNO Baltimore Orioles Team Checklist in Ex condition UNMARKED. In addition to that the seller included some BONUS Cards:
1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier Baseball:

Oh plus while I was at the home of my friends who back in July of last year (wow it was that long ago?) I had gotten a small box and 3 binders of cards from when their son collected cards in the mid-1990s (A Collection Acquisition) they gave me two more boxes of cards. I think this might be the last of the collection I've looked at one of the boxes and like the previous haul is a mix of the 4 major sports (Baseball, Football, Basketball and even Hockey this time) plus some multi-sport "Sports Illustrated for Kids" cards and a handful of Superhero cards.

On Monday 31 Mar 2014: I received a few packages/envelopes.

Got the TCC Chain Package back. This chain is now complete. The cards I'm keeping from it are:
2008-09 Collector's Choice Hockey 172 Sergei Fedorov Capitals
2001-02 Topps Chrome Basketball 40 Chris Webber Kings
2009-10 Topps Basketball: Roundball Remnants RR-CBU Caron Butler Wizards GU all blue incorporated into basketball design of card. Cool looking.
Also the included "2014 Rackrs Autograph Card" The Chipster Bravesfan09 1/1 biggrin.gif

Then from Ebay:
2004 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Baseball: Sweet Lineups 221 Jose Vidro and Nick Johnson Expos Gold 94/99 $3.00 + $3.00 shipping

Also from Ebay:
1978 Topps Baseball 36 Eddie Murray RC Orioles $3.25 + $1.50 shipping

And from SCF a Sale of 4 dumb 1965 Yankees: $25 Delivered
1965 Topps Baseball:
13 Pedro Ramos
30 Jim Bouton
65 Tony Kubek
137 Bouton Wins Again 1964 World Series Game 6

I think I overpaid for those 4 but I jumped at the chance. Someone on a forum actually had some they were willing to sell. The only real pain is I had to send a money order the guy doesn't do Paypal. He would have taken a check but the wait would have been longer since he would wait for the check to clear first. As it is it took about a week and a half from the date I mailed the MO to today the receiving date. I almost thought the guy wasn't going to send, even though it was an official transaction on that forum.
