On Saturday 22 Mar 2014 I got a package from a trade that helps on my 1988 Topps Baseball and 2011 Topps Baseball Opening Day set builds. I haven't logged them in toe Zistle yet, or even inventoried them Yet. I have just looked at them and put them in the blog congestion area for inventorying, scanning, blogging etc...
I still need to send out my end of the trade I have it packaged up now and waiting to be taken to the post office or UPS store next Saturday. Maybe I'll have a couple of other packages to go with it.

Got two packages on Monday 17 March 2014: A Ebay order and booty from a group break. I'll mention them in reverse order than what I normally do, I usually do the group breaks last since they usually have tons more cards to mention and people get bored reading about them biggrin.gif

So the group break was from Ken's (pwlantern) TCZ Baseball Group Break. My team the Nationals and the random team(s) I got were Cubs and Rays. The product was: 2014 Topps Tribute, 2013 Bowman Platinum, and 2013 Topps Tier 1 looks like I got at least one card per product, thanks to a totally random hit form Tier 1

2013 Bowman Platinum 9 cards (looks like I had the Nats from this already from a previous break or two)
39 Bryce Harper Nationals
58 David Price Rays Blue Sapphire variant looks more like crushed ice or shreded translucent cellophane or plastic wrap. FT/FS
Prospects:
BPP6 Will Myers Rays FT/FS
BPP18 Taylor Guerrieri Rays FT/FS
BPP28 Jorge Soler Cubs
BPP47 Brian Goodwin Nationals
BPP74 Lucas Giolito Nationals
BPP93 Richie Shaffer Rays FT/FS
Top Prospects:
TP-AR Anthony Rendon Nationals

2014 Topps Tribute 2 cards
76 Billy Williams Cubs
87 Ryne Sandberg Cubs

2013 Topps Tier 1 1 card a HIT
Tier 1 Relic TOR-EH Eric Hosmer Royals GU "Memorbilia" all white swatch #d 334/399

The second package was a small bubble mailer one card that I got from Ebay for $5.99 + $2.99 shipping. Only disappointment is the card was in a card saver only. UGH hate those things, at least the package was a regular bubble mailer.
1974 Topps Baseball 456 Dave Winfield RC Padres

This card helps with my 1974 Topps Baseball Set build it completes the base Padres team set (I still need one of the Rookie variants of card #599 the large print version I think). I even have the 15 Washington National League Padres variants. So now I have that team plus the full Orioles and Expos team sets (except for maybe some of the 4in1 rookie cards) and the team cards of each team plus the red team checklists.

1992 Classic Best Jamestown Expos (Expos) Team Set this set was sealed in the original plastic wrap. 30 Cards again nobody spectacular. Interesting they include the trainer's card, plus one of the catcher's card is a black and white head and shoulders portrait, not color portrait or action portrait like the rest
