Do It Yourself COMC Pack #1/35

I recently (not so recently anymore) had 8 months worth of Check Out My Cards purchases shipped.  I divided the 153 cards into 35 groups.  I like to think of these as hand picked "packs".   I'm posting them in random order.  "Pack" #1, 5 cards, was $1.57 including shipping.
