Got two sportlots 25 steals and a playing deck from Ebay.

The Ebay is the 2012 edition of Politicards playing cards deck. Politicards are playing cards that depict caricatures of the current pack of US politicians and politically minded celebs and sometimes news commentators. Since the Presidential races are only once every 4 years that is the only time these decks get produced. They started making these in 1971 for the '72 election and so far it seems they have made them every election year since. This is a brand spanking new sealed deck that I might keep sealed and then get a second deck to see what they look like since it is the current year.

Next I got a 2008-09 Upper Deck Hockey Masterpieces 52 Bob Baun - Maple Leafs BROWN FRAMED.

Went Vintage with 1970 Kellogg's Football 58 Carl Lockhart - Giants.

First I got the 2012 Baseball America Almanac from MLB Insiders Club. I gotta send the payment in. Anyway onto the important stuff.

I got two sportlots lots and a Non-Sport factory set from Ebay. First the Ebay set is The Factory box set of The Rocketeer cards from the movie 121 glossy cards (which are of slightly better quality than the regular waxpack set of 90 cards. Plus the 11 stickers. The box is sealed eventually I will open it to inspect the cards, but I'm in no rush to do that. I think I have some of the regular cards I need to dig those up before I try to make some scans of stuff. I know from earlier research that the backs of the regular set are really awful to try to read, and these are not much better but can be read somewhat.

Next I got a 2010 team set of the Nationals w/ Stephen Strasburg RC card 661 I think it's the one designated 661b I already have 661a I think (I checked an earlier entry on my card bog at blogger and noticed the one I had mentioned there I called "a" and this one is a different one I think it's the "b" but I might have reversed things. It is all so confusing. Some of the other cards I know I have I might even have all of them I'm not 100% sure. Anyway the card numbers are:

21 Cristian Guzman
63 Josh Bard
128 Garrett Mock
152 Nyjer Morgan
193 Shairon Martis
196 Ian Desmond RC
251 John Lannan
282 Team Franchise History
291 Austin Kearns
294 Adam Dunn
343 Brian Bruney
348 Jordan Zimmermann
361 Team Card
440 Willie Harris
453 Jesse English RC
465 Chien Ming Wang
485 Jesus Flores
561 Ryan Zimmerman
570 Josh Willingham
584 Matt Capps
628 Ross Detwiler
654 Collin Balester
661 Stephen Strasburg RC (version B?)

The dealer tossed in a freebie of a 1988 Donruss puzzle pieces card from the Stan Musial Diamond King Puzzle pieces 37, 38, & 39.

The other sportlots auction I got was for five 1968 Topps cards All Dodgers

15 Ron Hunt
249 Bill Singer (this one might be a dupe, unconfirmed)
298 Jim Brewer (This one is a dupe)
398 Jim Grant
472 Walt Alston

Got a cool Hawaii Five-0 Sketch card of Kono (Grace Park) it's a serial numbered print from an up and coming sketch artist/Ebay seller vinestreetstuff (I can't read the signature starts with a P) it is numbered 224/250 each of the prints this guy does and sells has a limited run of 250. It is very nice. It is a pencil sketch that has been color inked, probably watercolor. I is in a sealed toploader, the certificate/serial numbered back is a separate piece of light card stock/paper the paper/card stock of the front is ridged to give a canvas look. My only complaint is there is no penny sleeve inside, It seems that sketch artists don't put their cards in a penny sleeve before putting them in the toploader. At least most have the sense to use toploaders. Anyway only spent $12.99 for this plus $1.95 shipping. I have my eye on a couple of other sketches by this guy. One is another Hawaii Five-0 character the other is NCIS. those two are $20 - $25 so I'm weighing the "is it really worth it" card right now.

Wow it had been ages since I had been to sportlots.com. I sort of overdid it a bit the day before yesterday. I bid on 28 of the auctions there about 12 different sellers. So far only one auction I've been outbid on a '64 Philadelphia football Carrol Dale #88 Rams. Oh well I don't think I have that card, but sometimes I end up getting duplicates for the very reason I can't remember if I have the card or not and I end up bidding for another copy of it on sportlots. A few of the other auctions have had second or third bids but I'm still on top of those.

From Ebay I got two pencil sketched cards from the artist, Mark Spears. I got them for $6 (with $2 shipping) One if of Catwoman the other is Black Cat from Spider-Man. These were from the artist cards that are not associated with any series so some people might frown upon them even being collectible. Who knows how many of these the artist has actually produced?

On the subject of sketch cards I am so annoyed at both the sellers for setting ridiculous prices and for the collectors for paying those prices. A nicely drawn picture on a card (pencil sketch or B&W inked, or Full Color) on Ebay usually start at a ridiculous price of anywhere from about $40 to $60 starting bid (or sometimes Buy it Now) price sometimes they even start at about $100. None of them are worth that much to me, and many of them are poorly drawn but still start at some stupid outrageous price.
