Monday 09 December 2013: got an Ebay order, well 2 orders same seller. It was a bit late, but the seller had explained they had been computer-less for several weeks. I am glad it finally came. Shipping was FREE. The final item from my big "Free Shipping Spree" a few weeks back.

On Saturday 23 November, 2013: got a single card from an Ebay purchase. Total was $3.50 the shipping was free.
2013 Rittenhouse Warehouse 13 Season 4 Promo P2

On Thursday 21 November 2013: I got two cards from Ebay the first is:

1970 Topps Baseball 599 Senators 1970 Rookie Stars: Dick Stelmaszek, Gene Martin and Dick Such for it for .99¢ + .99¢ Shipping

Also got a very very nice looking ACEO (Art Cards Editions and Originals) sketch card from artist Javier Gonzalez at Blackhilt Studios it is a color portrait of Joanne Kelly as Myka Bering from Warehouse 13. I actually sniped this card in the last minute before the auction ended. The bidding was at $15.50 with 5 or 6 bids for a day or two up til the final day. I had "watched" the auction since I first saw it either the day it started or shortly after, then as the auction end time got closer I checked it periodically for any increase and then returned a few minutes before it was scheduled to end. For about 40 seconds I was worried my bid wouldn't be the winner due to other snipers, the ones that use automatic programs so they don't have to actually be watching the auction like I was. I only do that when I absolutely really really want a card or other item. Usually I just bid the final day. Anyway I was afraid that my maximum of $35 would not be enough, but I won the card for $21.50 my final bid was the 7th bid. Shipping was free at first I think it was $3.50 shipping but maybe after the bidding reached a certain price it switched to free? I am soooooooooooo glad I won this one.

On Monday 18 November 2013: I got an ebay purchase that I'm a little disappointed in, I was expecting more but realize it was described as what it is. Sigh I paid $9.99 for it (Free shipping) it was the Price Guide part of the Non Sport Update Vol 20 No. 2 with Doctor Who on the cover. I thought I was getting the magazine not the price guide part. Oddly the Doctor Who articles were in the magazine which apparently has The Terminator Salvation on its cover but the promo cards were supposedly a Star Trek card and a James Bond Archives card. I might not had rushed to get this thing, I had been watching it for a couple of weeks I should have noticed then. In 20/20 hindsight I would only have paid no more than $5 bucks for it. OH Well.

Now I also got some cards:
Also from Ebay 1968 Topps Baseball 341 Jim Lemon MGR Senators

Finally I got a package from a group box break at TCZ Pwolantern's (Ken) Bi-Monthly Baseball Break. My teams were my standard Nationals and Orioles. Here is the Booty:

2012 Onyx Platinum Prospects PP10 Dylan Bundy Orioles 009/500

2013 Bowman Platinum:
39 Bryce Harper Nationals
42 Manny Machado RC Orioles
BPP25 Anthony Rendon Nationals
BPP47 Brian Goodwin Nationals
BPP74 Lucas Giolito Nationals
Cutting Edge Stars die cut CES-BH Bryce Harper Nationals
Top Prospects TP-AR Anthony Rendon Nationals

2013 Topps Finest:
20 Stephen Strasburg Nationals
64 Anthony Rendon RC Nationals
86 Adam Jones Orioles
100 Bryce Harper Nationals

2013 Topps Triple Threads: Purple (Amethyst actually) Parallel 12 Ryan Zimmerman Nationals #d 151/650

And since I didn't get a "HIT" from the Nationals or Orioles I was given a card from a unclaimed team that had been randomized to the break host but he gave it to me

On Thursday 14 November 2013: I got a sportlots order a set of 22 cards. 1987 Topps Baseball Glossy All-Star Set 1- 22. Got it for only 25 +$3.50 shipping. These cards were packed in the rack-packs only during the mid 1980s. I know I already had/have some of these cards and at one time I thought I had all of them as well as the AS sets from the previous year and the following year, but I guess not. The seller who I have ordered from at least once before included as the cardboard sandwich two 3 piece cards for the 1990 Donruss: Diamond King Carl Yastrzemski Puzzle #19, 20, 21 card and 22, 23, 24 card
