On Tuesday 15 October 2013 Got the first wave of a sportlots order mostly baseball cards. Many of these I have had in my shopping cart for months on end, every once in a while having to update the list to replace cards that had been sold or had prices changed, then I would look for either a cheaper priced one or a better conditioned one or both. I was going to list them completely chronologically but then the postage costs would get totally confusing. Since it was sportlots sales many of them came in PWEs. I tried to order several cards from each seller so I wouldn't get as many PWEs.

Here is what I got:
Seller One 4 cards: $1.40 shipping
1953 Topps Baseball 164 Frank Shea Senators $3.00
1965 Topps Baseball 577 AL 1965 Rookie Stars: Darold Knowles Orioles, Richie Scheinblum Indians and Don Buschhorn Athletics $3.00
1968 Topps Baseball 365 Brooks Robinson AS Orioles Puzzle Back $3.00
1970-71 Topps Basketball 5 - 1969-70 Rebounds Leaders: Elvin Hayes San Diego Rockets, Wes Unseld B'More Bullets and Lew Alcindor Milwaukee Bucks $5.00

1963 Topps Baseball 479 Ed Brinkman Senators $6.00 + $1.00 shipping

3 Cards .99 shipping
1970 Topps Baseball 711 Ed Brinkman Senators $1.40
1971 Topps Baseball 389 Ed Brinkman Tigers (2) 0.40

1972 Topps Baseball 555 Ron Santo Cubs $3.00 + $1.25 shipping

2011 Topps Opening Day: Mascots M-24 Ace Toronto Blue Jays Mascot 0.18 + 0.75 shipping

Five cards plus one bonus card: $2.25 shipping:
2011 Topps Opening Day:Mascots
M-4 Wally The Green Monster Red Sox 0.50
M-16 Stomper Athletics 0.50
M-18 Pirate Parrot Pirates 0.50
M-21 Fredbird Cardinals 0.25
M-25 Screech Nationals 0.25
Bonus Card: 1990-91 Pro-Set Hockey YES HOCKEY when I got BASEBALL MASCOTS - 568 Calgary Flames Team Logo/Facts card

On Saturday 12 October 2013: I got a surprise package from a blogger Jack at Baseball Dad's All Tribe Baseball blog. A while back he had a contest/draft thing and I had gotten a card from it. I forget when it was (I could search his blog to see when he held it but that is too much work for right now). The note he included could have been the opening credit scroll for a Star Wars Movie "A long, long time ago I had a free card Give-A-Way..." anyway he also included some bonus cards I guess partly to make up for being so late in sending and probably partly just to be a cool member of the card blogging universe.

First the bonus cards which are 50 some 1988 Topps Baseball that knocked out a good chunk of what I needed from that set. I'll just list the numbers and point out a few key cards:
25, 44, 47, 60 Ricky Henderson Yankees, 61, 86, 87, 90, 98 101, 106, 111, 133, 146, 148, 164 Dave "Davey" Johnson Mets, 190, 214, 215, 240, 252, 266, 279 Randy St. Claire Expos, 288, 296, 306, 307, 319, 320 Alan Trammell Tigers, 350, 363, 364, 375, 418, 429, 496, 512, 545, 559, 567, 597, 601, 640, 642, 648, 662 Turn Back The Clock 1978 Jim Rice Red Sox, 667, 679, 682, 721,724, 729, 741, 755, 768, 773, 787, 791

Plus here is the card from the Give-A-Way:
2009 Enterplay Fan Pak Standees 60 Ryan Zimmerman Nationals (wearing a retro white 1926 Senators hat) the card is 3.5" x 3.5" square. Very fragile I almost accidentally punched it out while checking it out to mention it here.

On Saturday 05 October 2013 I got my cards from the TCC Official Football Group Box Breakers Special Edition Break. This was a special anniversary sort of break were past members were invited to sign up for a huge box break to celebrate the group's anniversary of some sort. It was a freebie break hosted by Sam AKA: WestCoastSkinsFan. Since I had the Rams in the past I was offered them. I don't recall what boxes or how many boxes were busted but there were a few anyway I came away with 6 cards: (ALL Rams so I don't need to mention the team)
