Seller included two bonus cards:

On Saturday 09 November 2013: I got three PWEs from sportots. I am still waiting on the final card from my huge order from about a month before, these cards were from auctions I had won earlier this week.

1965 Topps Baseball: 75¢ each + $1.75 shipping
62 Jim Katt Twins
75 Deron Johnson Reds
1966 Topps Baseball: 48 Paul Blair Orioles 25¢ + 45¢ shipping
1968 Topps Baseball: 378 Bob Gibson AS Cardinals puzzle back $1.75 + $1.95 shipping

The seller for 1968 card included his business card and freebie card. I have ordered from/won auctions from him before and he usually includes either a near worthless overproduced junk wax years card or one like what he sent this time a near legitimate worthless card of Frank Thomas White Sox This one seems to be a 1991 American Sports Monthly ASM-42 Frank Thomas White Sox

On Saturday 02 November 2013: I got a two card PWE yep PWE from an Ebay order I paid $4.14 shipping on. NO combined shipping and the guy sends in a PWE with 2 Forever Christmas stamps. Fortunately the guy at least put both cards in penny sleeve and toploader but then just wrapped in some lined notebook paper around the two and put in a standard #10 business envelope. Fortunately both cards survived. The PWE showed the outline of the toploaders so I knew before opening the envelope contained a card or cards (I am still expecting one card from sportlots) Here are the two VINTAGE cards I got:

1953 Topps Baseball 90 Hank Edwards Browns $.5.50 (2 bids some other jerk brought the price up to $5.00 I got it for $5.50 and No it doesn't look like shilling)
1965 Topps Baseball 422 Aubrey Gatewood Angels 0.99

On Saturday 26 October 2013: I got wave 8 of my sportlots splurge order, now there is just one card left to receive. It would have been two cards but one of the sellers couldn't find the card I ordered so I was refunded for that card (not the shipping), so I'll have to go elsewhere or another seller for that card. Now onto the cards I actually got in wave 8 a one dealer 3 card PWE.

Shipping was $1.60 not bad but for the business sized envelope they were in sharing one toploader and wrapped around a page from a newspaper magazine like Parade not great.
1974 Topps Baseball 138 Ed Brinkman Tigers 18
1975 Topps Baseball Mini 439 Ed Brinkman Tigers 55
2012 Topps Baseball 29 Active NL Wins Leaders: Livan Hernandez Nationals, Roy Oswalt Phillies, Randy Wolf Brewers 18

On Friday 25 October 2013: I got a sportlots package from the small order which wraps that one up. Ordered 4 cards shipping was $3.90
1962 Topps Baseball 208 Billy Martin Twins 0.75
1966 Topps Baseball 116 Walt Alston MGR Dodgers 0.25
1975 Topps Football:
106 Diron Talbert Redskins $1.75
121 Jim Bertelsen Rams 0.25

Seller included a FREE Bonus card: 1991?'92? Unknown maker (probably non-licensed counterfeit) NoNumber "Field of Dreams" Bo Jackson White Sox - reverse image. I tried researching the set this card is from but no joy. The back is the plain white background of the cardstock w/ black ink. Field of Dreams is in bold at top then Bo Jackson then in a black bordered square (with white squares in the corners for a baseball field effect) there is a short bio for Bo that mentions dates in 1990 and 1991. {Sigh!}

I don't mind getting "cheap" low-valued bonus cards but come on these low-quality Unknown cards with no number no manufacturer? I've gotten cards from this seller before, not sure if they are the one that almost always includes a freebie but they might be. I don't know I might put this seller on my mental "Do NOT buy from" list. I mean I don't mind having worthless cards, but cards that are just one step above being home made I don't want, nor do I want home-made cards (except the occasional sketch card).
