Saturday 17 August 2013: Two card day the first was in regular bubble mailer from an Ebay BIN $7.50 + $.3.00 shipping well worth the shipping price.
2010 Rittenhouse Warehouse 13 Season 1 NNO Autograph Susan Hogan as Jeannie Bering on-card blue sharpie (like all of the autos in this series)

The other card I'm kind of ticked off, both in what it actually is, but I didn't pay too much for the card itself. I am ticked about the shipping cost vs. HOW it was shipped. It was from sportlots (Kings of the PWE) and this thing was shipped in a PWE the card "secure" in soft cardboard (light card cardstock type cardboard not the big corragated stuff) I gave the seller a "Neutral" and said "High shipping for a PWE w/no toploader. Hopefully the guy will get the hint on that. The cost? For the card it was only $1.25 on one of the sportlots 1,2,3 auctions opening bid, not too bad, the shipping however $5.00 should have been sent in a bubble mailer NOT a PWE with just a soft cardboard "sleeve" (like index card stock or cereal box stock cardboard) that was taped closed. The card was in nothing no penny sleeve no toploader. The PWE was just a standard #10 business envelope (9.5" x 4.125"). The card is a Michael Jordan Baseball "White Sox" (He played in their minor league system for a season or two) by an unknown maker, the Front (I should have looked better at) looks like a 1986 Topps Baseball except no card logo and it is glossy. At first I thought maybe a special box topper, the back is a powder blue background with black text. The weird thing is the stats on the back are his NBA stats 1984-1990 then a statement that says if his stats were converted to baseball the would look like and then they have a baseball stat line for what his Basketball Stats would be like if they were converted to Baseball Stats. Very Weird. I"ll just chock this one down to an Fun OddBall card with no real value. I did see online one of these being auctioned off for $14.24 knocked down from $14.99.

Got one of my White Whales from Ebay. The total delivered cost was $75.00 the White Whale 1982 Topps Traded Baseball 98T Cal Ripken Jr. RC Orioles in NRMT (or pretty darn close to it), HOWEVER that was NOT ALL. They also sent the set box. The auction picture showed the Cal. Card in a hard plastic magnetic case sitting on the box and the auction said the box was included. BUT I still wouldn't pay THAT MUCH for just a Rookie card of one of my fave players and the set box the card came from. Also included was the rest of the set card numbers 1T through 132T (with the Cal card being #98T of course).

So I like to think I got the COMPLETE 1982 Topps Traded Baseball Set for $75.00 including the coveted Cal Ripken Jr. RC. Some people might look at it as paying $75 for the Cal RC and getting the rest of the set for free, but I don't because I adamantly refuse to pay more than $40-$50 for JUST ONE CARD. Even a super vintage RC of one of my fave players or of a legend. Those I might mind you I say might consider getting for more than that, but probably not.

A single card day. Man this was super well packaged from an Ebay seller no less. (got to mark them as a fave) To some this might seem like a repeat from about a month ago I got my 2nd Genelle Williams as Leena Auto card from Warehouse 13. This one is the earlier one from Season 2. Got it for $9.00 + $3.00 shipping It actually cost the seller $5.60 to ship. It was in one of those document sized priority mail envelopes as the outside envelope then a medium media mailing envelope like the old film development envelopes, then sandwiched between to pieces of card board then an invitation type envelope and finally in the "bonus" pack = the original 6 card pack it came from (or one similar if not the exact one)

From Ebay I got four cards BIN at $4.99 + $1.81 shipping They were early 1990s Joe Gibbs Redskins Coach cards. There is one duplicate so technically only 3 different cards, and two of them (including the duplicated one) I already had. Anyway they are:

1989 Pro Set Football 440 Joe Gibbs Redskins Coach (2) Had it
1990 Pro Set Football 333 Joe Gibbs Redskins Coach Had it
1992 Pro Line Profiles Football 127 Joe Gibbs Redskins Coach needed it (card 1 of a 9 card of a subset, not serial numbered one of only nine total made (1/9) like they do now days, so there could be 10,000 of these 1 of 9s)
