Some recent maildays and some mail from the past month or so: These came from some group breaks, a few ebay auctions and a couple of very nice TCCers and one or two other Online Card Collectors.

2008 UD FB Masterpieces: 71, 75, 99, 3 black frame, 85 black frame

2008 Topps FB Mayo:11, 69, 81, 262, 302,

I have some more from some group breaks, but since there are about 50-100 cards I'll do them a lttle later. So much to do so little time.

Thanks to an Ebay auction I got the last card I needed to complete the 1975 Wonder Bread Football set of 24. I twas card #1 Alan Page (Viks) The condition is a little less than what I would like, its one with bread staining. UGH. But at least now I have a complete set, even though I have like 5 or 6 cards that need upgrading to better conditions.

Got my 2 hits from the Baseball Group Break and I got one 2008 Topps Mayo Mini.
The mini is 106 Brodie Croyle Chiefs from Alex (Alex&Brenda 08)

My Hits from the Baseball break were both from the Orioles (No Nationals hits this month sad.gif)

2007 Upper Deck Exquisite Rookie Signatures Dual "Reflections" of Nick Markakis and Jon Knott blue sharpies on stickers #/10 for such a high end style card the sigs really should be ON CARD. The styling makes it look like they are on card but they aren't.

Next also from 2007 Upper Deck Exquisite Rookie Signatures again a blue sharpie on sticker (that tries to look on card) Brian Burres 1/1

Got to packages of cards.

FIRST: Got some cards from an Ebay auction. Only needed one of the cards to help get to within one card of finishing the set (still need card #1)
The cards are from the 1975 Wonder Bread Football set: I got cards #2, 7(2), 9(2), 15, 22(2) The #15 card Chuck Foreman is the card I got these dupes for. Now I just need to get card #1 Alan Page to finish my set. I'm looking for at least VG condition, preferably without any stains from the bread.

From Blogger Matt F. of Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius. I had replied to a post he made (back around March) about having pulled some cards and all you had to do was tell him what your team was (and send you mailing address), and he'd send you that team from his recent pull. I said Washington Nationals. It turns out he didn't have any Nationals from that batch so he sent me some Expos instead.

2000 Upper Deck HoloGrFX: These are supposed to be special type cards, these two I've got are a couple of those dud ones because the "effect" is all streaky.

35 Michael Barrettt

1997 Topps Stadium Club
210 Vladimir Guerrero
224 Rondell White (2)
290 F.P. Santangelo
