Got some Ebay stuff two sets of Non-Sport Cards from one Dealer. FREE SHIPPING. One of the sets is pretty rare and I spent a bit more than I really wanted but a lot less than I've seen it go for and the other is sort of plain in all sorts of ways.

First the not so exciting one unless you are into Oddball Marvel Comics from the 1970s/80s 1988 Topps Howard The Duck Card/Sticker set. 77 cards 22 stickers plus the wrapper for $14.00 - cards were originally packaged 9 cards + 1 sticker per pack w/ 1 stick of bubble gum

The other rare set hard to find completely full is 1979 (often listed as 1977 but copyright on cards is '79) Donruss CHiPS cards/stickers 60 numbered cards/stickers + 6 unnumbered stickers plus the wrapper for $50.00. I 've seen incomplete sets go for that or more. Usually the unnumbered stickers are missing or only 4 or 5 at most are listed. I don't know what makes this set soooooo rare and hard to find. Originally packaged 4 stickers per pack plus 1 stick bubble gum. The wrapper had a surprise. It was taped shut with a bit of masking tape to hold it together, I carefully removed the bad masking tape and it's residue (it was still OK hadn't been on there for too many years) and inside I was expecting maybe a blank piece of cardboard or maybe a forgotten "Chips" sticker nope it was a Superman Series II card #92 "The Family of Jor-El on Krypton" with top to bottom offcentering the copyright line is almost chopped off and the #92 is only about the top 2/3 of the number so any farther off and the number would be unreadable. I forget if I have that card or not I have some of the Superman Series II (second series of cards from first Christopher Reeve Movie) cards.
