Growing the Sandberg Collection, Part 2

Today's Sandberg Sportlots shipment comes from seller Westlake.

Just a heads up... I paid for the order on March 29 and Westlake marked the order as filled and shipped the same day.  However, the postmark on the envelope was April 4.  This seems to be turning into more of a problem, sellers marking items as shipped but not shipping.  Sportlot sellers have real motivation to marked items as shipped: Sportlots policy is that if an order isn't marked as shipped within ten days, then the seller is booted off of Sportlots. What is lacking is any way of verifiying that the order actually was shipped.  All we have to go on is the seller's word.  And some sellers are not being honest.  Boo for them.

I was able to find 13 more Ryno cards, all from the 1990s.  These additons boost the non-team set Sandberg cards to 136 and increase the Sandberg grand total to 723.

The cards include:
1990 Score 100 Superstars #32
1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier #103
1992 Leaf Black Gold #317
1992 Pinnacle Slugfest #9
1992 Upper Deck Fan Fest #39
1993 Donruss Spirit of the Game #14
1993 Leaf Heading for the Hall #8
1993 Upper Deck Clutch Performers #18
1993 Upper Deck Diamond Gallery #8
1994 Pinnacle The Naturals #14
1994 Upper Deck Fun Packs #60
1996 Leaf Preferred Steel #66
1996 Pinnacle Zenith #16
1997 Fleer Sports Illustrated Great Shots #11

The Preferred Steel was a bit of a surprise because the cards was on a hunk of metal.  The SI Great Shots was interesting, too, because it was a 5" x 7" poster.
