The first purchase was made on Sportlots from a Trading Card Database user, BOBCARDZ.
|1979 Fleer Team Action - Stickers|
I was happy to pick up these stickers from 1979. I know that had I pulled them as a kid I would have peeled them and stuck them to something. I had binders and notebooks covered in stickers. I'm glad that someone out there was saving them for me to buy later.

The second purchase was from a seller on Beckett Marketplace. I found myself there by looking for a specific card that it looked as though the seller had. I then decided to purchase a bunch of cards from his store, but before everything was shipped to me I received an email saying that they didn't have a few of the cards that I ordered and that I was being refunded for those cards, and of course, the original card that I wanted was one of the missing ones. Oh well, at least I found a bunch of other items that I wanted and was very happy with the prices.
Here is some of that order.

Bottom (l-r): 1968 Topps # 189 and #102
|1975 Fleer The Immortal Roll #37|
This card is a half-inch taller than standard cards.

I always like picking up Cleveland Browns items of former Saved By The Bell: The College Years star Bob Golic.

I was happy to get this sticker of Ozzie Newsome because I have many similar ones. The regular Topps set had stickers with "Coming Soon" on their back advertising the stickers and I've managed to pick up that sticker a few times for Newsome. It is nice to finally have the regular back shown below.
I've made it clear in the past that I love oddballs. I don't know if I had ever heard of the 1986 Jeno's Pizza Rolls card set before finding the Trading Card Database, but even if I did, I know that I hadn't seen one of the cards in person. This order brings me one of the Browns cards from the set.
|1986 Jeno's Pizza Rolls #42|
A card that I was aware of but had never seen before comes from the 1993 Action Packed set. I'm just going to show the back because that is where the difference is seen.
|1993 Action Packed - Quarterback Club Braille #10B|
When you think Michael Jackson, do you think flashy and shiny?
|1993 Pacific Prisms #15|
|(l-r): 1993 Skybox Impact - Colors #57; 1993 Skybox Impact - Update #U02|
I often complain about parallels, but as seen with the Colors card above they were around in the 1990s as well. Here are a few from the 1993 Topps Stadium Club set.
|Top (l-r): 1993 Stadium Club - Member's Only #134; and Super Teams Super Bowl #134|

|Top: 1993 Upper Deck #230|
Bottom (l-r): 1994 Fleer #473; 1994 Playoff #212
|L-R: 1994 Ted Williams Roger Staubach's NFL #14; 1997 Upper Deck Legends #34|
Finally, one last card irks me to look at but I have to get over it because I like the idea of the cards in its set.
|1996 Topps Laser #121|
Once again I will finish my post with the same paragraph from the last two days:
