Stuff about my collection
Netted a few more from the Bay.
First a 1960 Topps Football 67 Art Hunter Rams - Back cartoon can be partly made out. "Why is a Policeman the Strongest Man in the World?" A: "He holds up Automobiles with one hand" - An obvious reference to a traffic cop directing traffic, which now-a-days only happens when the traffic lights lose power from an electric storm.
OK then we move onto Baseball and 1974 Topps The complete team Checklist set of 24 cards for $9.99 + $3.00 postage. Most are unmarked. The Red Soxs has a bunch of pencil check marks, Padres have a couple of pencil marks, Phillies some pencil, Pirates has ink marks. So only 4 out of 24 have check marks of some kind. Not too shabby for only $10.
A couple of Ebay Winnings first up a 2008 Upper Deck Icons Legends
Football card LEG24 (Bronze?) Sonny Jurgensen Redskins #d 900/999
Then I got a vintage book copyrighted 1948 originally printed in 1949 but the dedication mentions 1968. I got it for $2.99 plus $4.00 shipping (it was pretty well packaged, not great but nicely done) It's paperback with some plastic coating on the cover that is peeling all-over. The title is [i]My Greatest Day in Football by Murray Goodman and Leonard Lewin a collection of memorable football moments as told by the old-time players such as Sammy Baugh, Don Hutson, Frank Leahy, George "The Gipper" Gipp, Bob Waterfield, Sid Luckman and several others. 37 in all. Looks like there is a more recent book with the same title and a similar book for Baseball.
This is what my cover looks like (image is not my copy it's a stock image): http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/bantam/151-1.jpg
I want to read it someday, I might have to either wait to get a newer copy or be extra extra careful while reading it.
Got some Ebay stuff and a package of a few cards from the "Time To Give Something Back" thread. First the Booty from The Bay.

The Virgils, Trouts, Stenhouses, Smalleys, Skinners, Schofields, Laws, Kunkels, Kennedys, Franconas, Boones, Berras, and The Bells. A few of them are a little off center like the Smalley card, but not to annoyance with these.

From Ebay got my 1971 Mattel Instant Replay disc of Sonny Jurgensen Redskins for aprox. $10 ($6.99 plus $2.99 postage). Reliving my childhood I guess, why not. A while back I had gotten the Frank Robinson disc for $15.00 at my local card shop. Back in the day I used to have one of the players and about 12 discs or more that I shared with my brother who also had a player and some discs. He even had 2 or 3 of the later 2-sided discs.
The dealer of this one sent as a bonus an unopened pack of 1991 Upper Deck The Quarterbacks Challenge Domino's Pizza cards.

If those extras weren't enough he sent 3 unopened packs:

Today Thursday 18NOV2010 I got some football and baseball from Ebay and Sportlots.
It doesn't matter what I got from where, but one thing is a couple of these sellers decided to put in some "extras" one package it made sense I won a vintage Chicago Bear card and the dealer sent two more modern (1990 & 1991) Bears cards. The other dealer I had gotten a 2005 Baseball Card 2005 Expos and the guy added 6 extra cards (3 Padres, 1 Brewer, 2 Reds from years 1990, 1992 & 1998). So one dealer his extras made sense the other not so much.
OK so here is what I got:

55 Gaylord Perry Rangers
150 Steve Garvey Dodgers NL AS
235 Bert Blyleven Twins
