On Monday 23 Apr 2018 I got two small packages from two Ebay BINs I think one was a small bubble mailer the other was one of those flat small photo envelopes. Both contained one Topps Now card. They are Non-Sport/Politics cards. They share a common theme.

Package 1: Ebay $5.99 + $4.49 shipping
2017 Topps Now: 308 Cubs Present No. 45 Jersey to President Trump

Package 2: Ebay $6.25 + $1.35 shipping
2018 Topps Now: ST-9 Astros Present Noumber 17 Jersey to President Trump. Oddly this card has no description on the back just another photo during the visit as the background.

I received a small bubble mailer package on my Birthday today. My portion of the cards pulled from Colby at Cardboard Collections Blog his second Affordable Group Box Break of the year. This time the products were 2002 Topps Gallery Baseball and 2004 Topps Clubhouse Collection Baseball with a bonus repacked box of 100 cards, a box of 2017 Panini Diamond Kings Baseball and I think a bonus pack of something. My purchased team (I think it was 18 bucks this time) was of course the Expos and my random team was originally the Diamondbacks but we were allowed to make trades with the random teams so I traded for the Blue Jays. Getting both Canadian Teams cards hehe. IN total there were 15 cards 11 Blue Jays, 3 Expos, 1 National. He also included an open wrapper from the Clubhouse Collection, and the promo foldout leaflet from Topps Gallery for an auction of the art work that was used in the card set.

Cards received:
1987 Topps Traded Baseball: 83T Jeff Musselman Blue Jays
1991 Upper Deck Baseball:
585 John Cerutti Blue Jays
783 Davon White Blue Jays
1992 Fleer Baseball: 343 Mike Timlin Blue Jays

2002 Topps Gallery Baseball:
44 Orlando Cabrera Expos
53 Javier Vazquez Expos
62 Vladimir Guerrero Expos
93 Carlos Delgado Blue Jays

2017 Panini Diamond Kings Baseball:
88 Edwin Encarnacion Toronto
123 Stephen Strassburg Washington

ON Wednesday 28 March 2018: I got a nice sized box from UPS. It was my order from Dave & Adams (DACard World) I mostly got some boxes of stuff to open for the Football Team Traders over at SCF but I did get one PC thing a card set. Since I got a bunch of stuff I made sure my order was large enough to get the free UPS shipping. It is 3 day not rushed but hey FREE Shipping is FREE shipping.

The set I got was the 132 card 1985 Topps USFL Football factory set. Their price for this set was pretty good at $104.95. On Ebay it is at least $110 to start more often up and over $200 and the Inaugural 1984 set is even more expensive. Someday I will get that one as well. The Rookies (or XRCs as many call them since apparently the NFL is the only OFFICIAL RC league) include: Gary Clark, Doug Flutie and Hershel Walker.
