The winner last night was: Derek
Next we have some cards that came via NY from Bo.
Bo was able to find these hits for my Braves team needs. All I can say is keep em' coming. I love marking off needs.
Yes, you read that right. Want to know more? Read on.... but first I am letting you know that all of my life I have been fascinated with Ancient Egypt. Maybe it was all of those Indiana Jones movies as a teenager I'm not sure. What I am sure of is that a long time ago I wrote a Thesis on Akenaton (a-kin-na-taun).
I find this stuff interesting, then again I am a buff. This post was the last Masonic Monday for February. In the line-up (a spin on baseball of course) for March are the following: John Wayne, Buzz Aldrin, Henry Ford, and Voltaire.
How's that for a variety? The winner Friday night was: Jeremy.
The winner last night was GTT.
Okay, I mentioned the other day that I had several packages come in. This post contains cards received from none other than the Owl.
Yep, needed all of these.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Picking right up where we left off last night with part two from Nick.
Nick did send another set, complete 22 card Greenville Braves from 1990 Best, but I had that set already. There were just three names familiar to the big leagues: Turk Wendell, Kelly Mann, and Al Martin who I only remember being dealt to the Pirates and playing for them. Again, thank you Nick. I appreciate all of the hits to my needs list.

Nick sent a bubble mailer loaded with Braves needs. So many that I will have to make 2 posts to cover them (and I left out an entire set).
Artist Proofs, pink refractor, holo prizm, Greg Maddux VARIATION (the red background), minis, autographs, and gold and that is just the first 9 cards. Thanks Nick!
I don't have a lot of the E-topps cards and certainly didn't have this one. You can seethe minor league cards above. This is just a tease, we know Nick reigns with those minor league cards.
The winner last night was: Night Owl
Wow, that was a hard week of posting. I think I got everything out there. Anyways, some normalcy now. I've had several traders, bloggers, readers send some cards of late, let's get started with some surprise cards from Jeremy.
I'll have several more incoming posts to get to from Dime Box Nick, Bo, and the Night Owl. Stay tuned.
The winner Friday night was: GTT.
Now let us start off with the little stuff.
I'm suspect these are from the 1972 the reprint set. Not sure and don't remember, but when I bought them they were supposed to be from the 1956 Topps US President's set (36 card set). I felt and posted back then that the condition was just too nice, that doesn't mean that they are necessarily the reprints but I'm just saying.
I'll use this episode for the usual Masonic Monday.
I know that some of the above (and below) cards have been shown this week and I can not be positive that they are duplicates. I may have had them handy when I switched laptops and may have just scanned them to the new (current) laptop. One day in the neat future when time permits I will know and if they are in fact doubles I know someone had interest in the Reagan above.
This wrapper is from the 1972 Topps reprint set for certain.
These coin sets are courtesy of Uncle Fred.
Above are the Presidential covers and other than any I've already used will at some point this year pop up on the Masonic Monday theme with the article included.
The above three books/magazines are from my collection. I had picked these up a yard sale just around the corner of my house here. I believe all 3 are from 1964.
I said that this would be a blowout tonight. I hope I met that description.
