On Thursday 29 May 2014: I got two packages.

First package was a single card I got from Ebay $4.36 + $3.00 shipping. It was well packaged and the card was in a clear magnetic holder/case. 2008 Topps Allen & Ginters Autograph AGA-AF Andrea Farina World Rock Paper Scissors Champion blue shapie on-card mini in frame.

Second package was cool from a cool colllector Ryan who is currently living in Japan his blog This Card is Cool usually shows off the local Japanese cards he picks up but there are the occasional US Market stuff. Occasionally he has mentioned the Sega Card Gen (other bloggers have mentioned these as well) which is kind of a hybrid. A while back I had sent him a couple of Upper Deck 20th Anniversary cards he needed. In return he sent me some Sega Card Gen cards from my Homie teams that he featured on his blog.

2012 Topps Sega Card Gen Baseball J12-002 Robert Andino Orioles
2013 Topps Sega Card Gen Baseball
J13-007 Wilson Betermit Orioles
J13-008 Jason Hammel Orioles
J13-010 Darren O'Day Orioles
J13-376 Kurt Suzuki Nationals
J13-378 Danny Espinosa Nationals
J13-380 Ryan Zimmerman Nationals

On Wednesday 21 May 2014: Not a mailday but got some cards from a Target Shoot/Hunt whatever you wanna call getting cards from Target.

I got the 2014 Topps Baseball National League Team Set (All-Star Team?) 17 cards. Ugh thought it was just the Nationals when I picked it up but it appears to be the NL All-Star Team. Dang Harper being card #1.

Then I got a fairfield repack box, but a box of packs not loose cards. It is one of the 20 pack boxes with 2008 Topps showing can't quite identify the other packs yet, haven't opened it yet. Seems to be 4 or 5 different brands and 3 or 4 packs each.
