On Friday 10 Feb 2012 I got my 5 card set of Elvira Sketch Cards for $3.99 FREE Shipping. The artist is Parmenter according to the seller/artist with Ebay ID Monster-Art-World in Ohio.

The cards in in full color and are on photo stock/quality paper, the backs are clean and blank. The toploaders were taped at the top and two of them held two "cards" back to back. For all I know this guy could be just scanning sketches and printing onto 2.5 x 3.5 cards. I don't care though I got this set because I really loved the look and the subject matter. When I first saw the auction for them there were only two maybe three of them I was really excited about now its more like 4 out of the 5.

Got a couple of sportlots things and some Ebay autos.

The sportlots stuff was all BASEBALL

1982 Topps 711 Seattle Mariners Future Stars: Dave Edler, Dave Henderson, and Reggie Walton (2)

2003 Bazooka Stand-Up 9 Alex Rodriguez Rangers - based on the 1964 Topps Stand-Ups.

From Ebay (3 dealers) I got 5 Inkworks Autos all of them gold sealed (which for two of them blocks the view of the character info on the back.

2000 Inkworks Charmed: Season One Auto A5 Brian Krause as Leo Wyatt. Due to the Back card design the huge gold "Razor Authentic Uncirculated" seal covers half of the character info.

2003 Inkworks Charmed: The Power Of Three Auto A20 Michael Bailey Smith as Belthazor. Again the great golden seal blocks half of the character info on the back.

2005 Inkworks Charmed: Conversations Auto A8 Patrice Fisher as Avatar Beta

2006 Inkworks Charmed: Destiny
Auto A5 Rebecca Balding as Elise Rothman
Auto A8 Gildart Jackson as Elder Gideon

1961/62 Topps Hockey 6 Dick Meissner - Bruins

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
