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:

2005 Donruss Diamond Kings Framed Red 139 Nick Johnson Expos
1976 Topps:
55 Gaylord Perry Rangers
150 Steve Garvey Dodgers NL AS
235 Bert Blyleven Twins
530 Don Sutton Dodgers

Then the stupid extras sent with the Nick Johnson:
1990 Fleer
151 Andy Benes Padres
429 Jeff Reed Reds
1990 Upper Deck 684 Jack Armstrong Reds
1992 Topps Stadium Club 684 Phil Stephenson Padres
1998 Topps Chrome:
77 Greg Vaughn Padres
212 Gerald Williams Brewers

1954 Bowman 127 Joe Koch Bears
1974 Topps Some Redskins (I've got more coming I think):
260 Larry Brown
287 Bill Brundige (dupe)
313 Dave Robinson
345 Chris Hanburger
422 Charlie Harraway

The smart extras from the Joe Koch Bears
1990 Fleer 288 Neal Anderson Bears (dupe)
1991 Pro Set Brad Muster Bears

Got some vintage Rams from Ebay and Sportlots plus some Playing Cards.

From a Sportslots auction got:
1960 Topps Football 68 Les Richter Rams
1968 Topps Baseball 298 Jim Brewer Dodgers

Then the rest from Ebay got:

Some 1954 Bowman Football Rams: For up to $5/each.
08 Norm Van Brocklin
20 Tom Fears
32 Elroy Hirsch

Now the Playing cards (from Ebay as well)

A Sealed Deck of the Pro Football Hall of Fame color photo of the Hall. They had a BIN of $19.99 or Best Offer (going on for a while I had been watching for over a month) I offered $14 and they took that. So I got it for $20 delivered not $26. I had a deck of these cards when my brother and I went to Canton back in 1980 - I think my old deck had a gold edge on the side of the cards these don't have the gold edge, maybe my old deck never did can't recall.

Then to add to my Stancraft 1967? NFL Team Playing Cards Decks I got the Minnesota Vikings in Box (NFL Shield Jokers) fro $9.99 + $2.75 postage. Now my collection is 3/16 complete.

Got a white whale from Ebay today (10 Nov 2010).

1982 Topps Baseball #21 - Baltimore Orioles Future Stars Bob Bonner - Cal Ripken - Jeff Schneider for $12.24 delivered ($10.25 + $1.99 standard shipping)

user posted image

This card is often considered to be Cal's Official RC, as well as the usually more expensive 1982 Topps Traded #98T

Good/Great just a tad less than Excellent condition (a little corner flaking)

Bad delivered in PWE (with a forever stamp) and in an UltraPro "Cardsaver" (Like the pic below) no penny sleeve UGH.

I transferred it to a penny sleeve and toploader.

Over the weekend I won a couple of Ebay auctions. One is a white whale. The 1982 Cal Ripken Jr. Orioles Future Stars RC #21 (w/Bob Bonner & Jeff Schneider) for just a little over $12 delivered. I saw a few auctions of it go for up to $20 and we are talking the raw ungraded ones here. The other 1982 Cal Ripken Jr. Card (the "Traded" card) I still need but that one has been going for insanely more for now.

The other auction I'm excited about is another one of those 1967? Stancraft card decks of The Minnesota Vikings in box supposedly with both jokers. Hopefully it is true.

Been quite awhile since I've posted here. I almost forgot how to do it. Anyway got two packages in the mail, well one was a PWE from Ebay, what do you expect from "Free Shipping"? (At least the PWE was marked "DO NOT BEND", and cards arrived safely)

Anyway the PWE was from Ebay as I said two cards:

1966 Philadelphia Football Merlin Olsen card number 102 (just the other day I noticed I already had a copy oh well now I have two)
