Got a bunch of Redskins and Nationals cards from a trade with a member over at SportsCardForum (SCF1). He was to send first now I have to send out my end which is Kansas City Royals and Chiefs to him.

I will list what I got later, probably tomorrow sometime or over the weekend. If I can remember to do it. A few times I never came back to list stuff here. UGH.

Got some sportlots cards

1972 Topps Baseball
1 Pittsburgh Pirates Team Card
313 Luis Aparicio Red Sox
1973 Topps Baseball245 Carl Yastrzemski Red Sox

Then from Ebay: This is the super cool card of the day. My first Vintage RED MAN Chewing Tobacco card for $10

1953 Red Man Baseball 19 Bob Porterfield Senators (with Tab) - corners of course are dinged and there are a few very light creases on the front a very nice specimen.

Since I've known about these I've always wanted some preferably with the tab and in decent shape like this one is in. I want more of the Red Man cards and will get more from time to time when they are affordable. Of course I will have to give in and get many of them without the tab [sigh] Those I hope to get in as best condition as I can find.

Diamond Aces 20 card set of Pitchers
Kings Of The Diamond 30 card set (near set missing cards #4 and 10, but I knew that going in)

also from Sportlots
2003 Topps Total baseball 697 Ryan Church Indians

2009 Goudey Baseball
1 Adam Dunn Nationals (shown in Diamondbacks Uni)
197 Ryan Zimmerman Nationals
199 Lastings Milledge Nationals
200 Christian Guzman Nationals

From Ebay for $10 (plus a little for postage)
I also got for nostalgic purposes a full playing card deck from my youth from Whitman Publishing Co. (copyright on each card says Hassenfeld Bros. Inc.) The G.I. Joe card game - copyrighted 1965 edition. The game plays like "Uno" except there are no "skips or draws". There are 44 cards divided into 4 "suits" ARMY (soldier running), NAVY (underwater diver), MARINES (grunt with flamethrower), AIR FORCE (Pilot wearing parachute pack walking maybe running holding his airmask). Each suit has 10 cards numbered 1 - 10 and an 11th card marked with a star that is the "wild" card. The backs are an ordinary playing card back with an olive green pattern.

As I kid I had played this game with my brother we had gotten it at a flea market held at our families church for like $5 (or more likely a buck or two maybe less I don't recalled the exact price but it was real cheap even back then) I don't remember if I had wanted it or my brother had bought it. Eventually our set got lost in our basement utility room that doubled as a storage room. Over the years I would find one or two of the cards from time to time, I don't think any from that set survived. For many years the only thing I really remembed from the set was vague memories of the 4 images and maybe the numbering or the Star.
