Saturday 15 Dec 2012 I got a bunch of Ebay stuff including the mystery package I had gotten the orange/pink slip for a couple of days ago. That package was from sportlots I'll mention last since it had the most more or less.

ON with what I got Starting with all the Ebay stuff (which is most of it):

1981 Fleer Here's Bo Set full variation set Base set of 72 cards plus back variation cards for a total of 198 cards $26.99 + $9.00 shipping.

Whitman Cards "Who Is The Thief?" Card Game 44 game cards 1 instruction card/cover card. Copyright is 1966 I'm not sure the year of this set but it is an early one because the cover card doesn't say "45 Card Deck" or "Rule Card Included" like later sets do. Got it for $6.99 + $3.00 shipping. This card game tends to go quickly when on Ebay it took me a few times looking for it and watching it to finally snag a one.

Got a lot of 1961 Topps Baseball All Cubs for $14.99 + $3.00 Shipping They are:
