I only owned one of the ten copper parallel cards for the Browns team set before this order. As with most parallels, I'll grab them when I can.
I was a fan of both Brady Quinn and Colt McCoy, and am very happy to pick up new cards of both of them.

Two nice inserts for the 2010 Panini Classics set.

With the Topps Unrivaled cards, here is another instance where I've acquired a parallel and autograph before getting the base card. The autographed card is the most expensive card of this post at $2.00. It is my eleventh autographed card of Montario Hardesty.
I already owned the base card for the Brandon Weeden card.

The team logo sticker in the top right is foil.
The mascot shown on the bottom sticker is one of the NFL created Rush Zone mascots. I read that the Browns one is named K-9.

The three darker scans are foil stickers. I like the look of the textured stripes in the background on them.

I like the illustrated Barnidge sticker in the middle of the top row, but the eight on his number and his left leg seem a little off to me.

Another year of stickers, and another of the Rush Zone mascot stickers.

Again, the stickers that scanned dark are foil.
The Brock Osweiler sticker might be the only card to show him in a Browns uniform. He was listed as a member of the Browns in the Prestige set, but was still in his Texans uniform.

Outside of the stickers, there were still base cards that I needed that were found in the different sellers' inventories.

There always seem to be college cards of Browns draft picks that I need. I don't mind collecting them. They're good for a change of pace every now and then.

Tyrod Taylor may not have had many starts with the Browns before Baker Mayfield took over, but from everything that I read, he was a great mentor and leader with the team. I know that he signed with the Chargers in the off-season, but I haven't heard anything about how he is doing with them. I wish him the best!

These foil stickers had fancy patterns in the background. Of course, with the Duke Johnson trade last week, neither player on the foil stickers above are with the team anymore.

My purchases finished off with a couple more base cards that I needed.
The cards shown in this post came to $19.38, which is basically the equivalent of another blaster.
When looking to buy individual inexpensive cards, it is hard to beat Sportlots prices. They are generally better than you will find on COMC during sales (although COMC gives you the additional benefit of seeing the exact scan of your card), and definitely better than the individual prices on eBay. You just have to pay attention to the different sellers' shipping prices.
The other problem with Sportlots is that it can be a little time intensive to search through various sellers' inventories. All in all, though, I think that the return I get from the cards and their prices is well worth the time that I have to spend to construct the orders.
