Welcome to my blog!!!

I have collected baseball cards and autographs over the years. I still have boxes full of cards (as well as newer cards) that are just sitting there. So, I have decided to see how many of them I can get autographed. I use through the mail as my preferred route for this adventure. I also have an account on Zistle for trading purposes (stevienicks77).

I am currently in graduate school, so it may take me until the weekend to respond to trade requests! I can't get done with school soon enough!

2015 Topps Valor football

I have started to buy a few football cards, but not many.  I only buy the cards that I think look cool.  This year, Topps Valor did it again.  I love the design, but not as much as last years.


Big Ten Alumni

Some of my favorite "old guys"

Insert card

Numbered cards

Rookie Jersey card

More stuff...

Some more 2015 Topps Update...



I always buy the $20.00 box to hopefully get a Cub or Royals; sad thing is I never do.  These are for trade.

Just some stuff I have bought

I haven't had a chance to catch up with my posts, so I'll be posting over the next couple of days some things I have bought, along with the one trade I have had time to complete.

 I got this the during the World Series...HOZ!!!

These pink cards keep bringing me back.  At least I got one for my PC in Harvey.

Finally, a special surprise.  The scan looks bad, but the card looks great!

2015 Heritage High Number

I wanted to buy a pack or something of the 2015 Heritage High Number.  It seems like it came out awhile ago, so I was worried I might not get any.  My current store does not keep cards in stock like they used to in years past, or someone is hogging all the cards!  Here's the goodies:

Playoff bound teams:



Short prints

Most people know him as the guy who can pitch with either arm, I know him as Creighton Blue Jay Alumni, Pat Venditte!

2015 Topps Chrome, take 2

I was at the store this weekend, looking to see if I could snag any 2015 Heritage High Number cards. While I was there, I saw a pack of 2015 Chrome that said "pink cards."  I couldn't resist.  Here's my goodies:

Token catcher card.

This is a pretty awesome picture!

Token Royal

And...the pink cards!  I am going to keep the Abreu for my own PC, and I might try to get the Moreland autographed next year.

Mark Grant

Mark Grant is currently a broadcaster for the Padres.  I had written these cards off long ago, but I am excited to have them back.  For some reason, I appreciate the '88 Donruss and how the autograph looks on those cards.
