Got two PWEs from sportlots first one I had to cut open the envelope it was one of those party invitation sized envelopes that was taped both at the top of the envelope to keep it sealed and down the center I guess to help with stability. A real pain in the rear to open though (that one the seller sent a "freebie") the second envelope was OK to open but the 4 cards inside were all in one "card saver" that of course was taped with regular clear tape across the opening, luckily the cards were far enough down in it not to be damaged but no safety was used for them.

Envelope 1:
One bought card and a freebie card as I said the PWE was taped like a large package with tape going both directions real pain to open. The cards shared a toploader (taped at the top but the sportlots small order invoice was a partial safety device.) the card I bought was auctioned at 0.25¢ + $1.95 shipping
1967 Topps Baseball 22 Gene Brabender Orioles
FREEBIE GIFT CARD 1994 Sportflics 2000 Rookie/Traded[/b] SAMPLE 25 Deion Sanders Reds

Envelope 2:
As I said above the PWE was OK to open but the cards were only in a "card saver" that was taped at the opening. Very Dangerous for 2 vintage and two modern cards. All four cards I got for opening bid of .25¢ + $3.40 shipping (Highway Robbery)

From Ebay for a bid of only .99 + $13.07 shipping (the Medium flat rate box it came in had twenty-one .29 stamps on it mostly christmas stamps, only a total of $6.09 but also had an Ebay address label so I don't understand why the stamps?)
Anyway the package contained an almost full, but not quite totally full Mead soft binder with Football, Baseball and Basketball cards. Mostly Baseball and Football. I got it mainly for some of the Redskins, Rams and a few players I wanted like an F.P. Santangelo card I didn't have, a couple of Orioles cards, a Tony Gwynn or two a couple of Cal. Ripkens. Nothing too big in terms of financial value, but quite a few in terms of helping with some of those "junk wax" year sets.

OK grab for $14 bucks.

Saturday 29 June 2013 from sportlots 3 auctions same dealer shipping was $3.95
Got three 1969 Topps Team Stamp Album Inserts all three empty clean no stamps. I noticed all the checklists I've seen (at first search) have them numbered in alphanumeric order by city, but that is incorrect as they actually have numbers (of 24) on the backs with a different order. Sadly most people seem to be using the alphabetic order for the checklist so until I have all 24 or can verify their real numbers I won't know what number to use for the ones I really need. I've listed the three I have with their real printed numbers 13, 15, 16 their alpha numbers would be 2, 23, 24

13 Baltimore Orioles .75
15 Washington Senators $3.25
16 Seattle Pilots $1.25

Seller included a BONUS Card:
1985 Circle K Baseball 34 Lee May Reds
