On Thursday 02 January 2014:
Got 3 sportlots cards: two of them to help finish off my 1970 Fleer World Series (illustrated by Robert Laughlin) set actually one of them was to upgrade a really off-center almost miscut copy.

1970 Fleer World Series
41 - 1944 WS Cardinals vs. Browns - This is an excellent copy to replace one that was really really off-center to the right. This copy is also a bit off center, but more "normal" since it is noticeable but at first looks OK. Got it for $2.49 + 0.99 shipping
45 - 1948 WS Indians vs. Braves - I didn't have this one. Why? I'm not sure. Got it for 0.75 + 0.70 shipping -

The seller Ken included a 2012-2013 pocket schedule for the Worchester Sharks (AHL Hockey) whoever wants it I'll send it to you since they aren't the Capitals or an affiliate of the Caps I'm not interested in it. Also on the sportlots order/packing slip after they standard "Thanks" he added "Love the blog!" (meaning my regular blog) Thanks Ken

1970 Topps Baseball
585 Rusty Staub Expos 0.75 + 0.46 Shipping. Helps with my Expos "Curly W Team Sets"

Plus I got my latest issue from my subscription of "THE WRAPPER" Non-Sport Magazine Issue #280 Jan. 1 - Feb 15, 2014 Cover story BatMan. Subtitle on header is "Same Bat Channel" Since 1978

on Thursday Boxing Day 26 December, 2013: I got a package from sports lot auctions all the same seller, but unfortunately the shipping was murder at $8 UGH.

Well here is what I got:
1961 Topps:
450 Jim Lemon Twins 0.25¢
458 Willie Tasby Senators 0.25 ¢ (one more for my Curly W Team Sets Project)
463 Jack Fisher Orioles $1.25

1980 Topps: Expos Lot 17 cards (of 28 in the team set) $2.75 Gets me that much closer to the 1980 Expos Team Set, I had a few of them already. I ordered the remaining 6 cards I need from one seller at sportlots regular inventory not auctions so shipping is not highway robbery like the auctions are.
