Got my part in from a trade with Ken (athopesend) I sent some Raiders GUs and a Hockey Auto and I got a ton more than I expected.

The initial cards I wanted to set the trade up were:

2008 Donruss Playoff Silver Signatures Carlos Rogers Auto
2007 Donruss Classics Darius Walker Rookie # /499
2006 Flair Showcase Dominique Byrd Fresh Ink Auto.

Then to even things up a bit since I was sending 5 higher end GUs and an Auto:

02 Gridiron Kings 165 John Riggins Crowning Moment
06 Classics CS-24 Gale Sayers Classic Singles # /1000
06 Classics LP-20 John Riggins Legendary Players # /250
06 Upper Deck F25-PO Clinton Portis Fantasy Top 25
07 Classics LP-21 Sammy Baugh Legendary Players # /1000
07 Classics LP-29 Jim Brown Legendary Players # /250
07 Contenders DC-28 Brian Leonard/ Adam Carriker Rams Draft Class # /1000
07 Threads P-16 Eric Dickerson Performers # /500
07 Triple Threads 71 Santana Moss Emerald # /199
07 Ultra GL-JN Joe Namath Gridiron Legends
08 Classics 123 Mike Singletary Legend # /999
08 Classics 133 Walter Payton Legend # /999
08 Classics CS-9 Sammy Baugh Classic Singles # /250
08 Classics CS-23 Jim Brown Classic Singles # /250

There were a bunch more Redskins and Rams and some Baseball that is just too numerous to list here. It was a great haul. And a great trade I think both of us were pleased with it.

From an Ebay Auction is got this sweet card for only $0.99 + $2.99 Shipping.

1963 Jell-o Ernie Banks
user posted image

The seller was selling it as a Post. $0.99 is a great deal for the Post version, but for the Jello not so much but still a deal. For the accuracy of the description I gave had to knock the feedback to 4 stars for that category.

I went to Target to get some clothes mostly, but decided to also get some cards. I got a blaster of 2009 Donruss Classics Football and 5 packs of the same. Usually separate packs yield some pretty good hits, these unfortunately didn't do soo hot. One pack got bent during transit on the way home so those 5 cards have big creases in the center one of them was an insert of a Sunday's Best OH Well.

OK here is the break down of what I got. Most are for trade I will put "PC" after the ones that are NOT FOR TRADE.

Here I will put them in card # order (with the damaged cards first out of the order) that way I can easily see the ones I got twice tonight.

I got 3 packages in on Friday 11 Sept. 2009. Two were from sportlots.com auctions (one of those was a Football card) and the other package was from the August break of the Official TCC Baseball Box Break Group hosted by Jeremy (Luke4211)

First from Sportlots I got:

package 1:
2007 Donruss Classics Football
130 Legend - Joe Theismann #d/999

package 2:
1959 Topps Baseball
284 Steve Korcheck - Senators

package 3:
From the August 2009 Official TCC Baseball Group Box Break My team is the Washington Nationals (I used to also have the Baltimore Orioles but it was getting expensive to have 2 teams each month). Most of my cards from this break were 2009 A&G from unclaimed teams and the random specials like the big Hit I got.

2008 UD Sweet Spot Baseball
91 Ryan Zimmerman - Nationals

2009 Allen & Ginter
Base:
39 Hanley Ramirez - Marlins
73 Vernon Wells - Blue Jays
93 David DeJesus - Royals

213 Stephanie Brown Trafton - Discus Throwing Champion (dupe for me)
299 Sharon Martis - Nationals (another Dupe for me)
307 Hunter Pence - Astros

National Pride
NP87 Adrian Gonzalez - Padres - Mexico

Minis
232 Everth Cabrera - Padres

Creatures of Legend Myth & Terror
LMT5 The Invisible Man

Big Hit from 2009 A&G

RC43 - Garrett Atkins - Rockies RIP CARD #/50- UNRIPPED

user posted image

I plan on keeping it UNRIPPED as it is my first rip card, and I've never liked the idea of rip cards, demoting the outer card to being just a wrapper for mini card hidden inside. Also sometimes the rip isn't terribly clean making the 'used' ripped card very unlikeable.
