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 and The Trading Card Database for trading purposes (stevienicks77).

I couldn't resist buying from the COMC summer sale.  I had some left over cash in my COMC account, so I figured, why not?  I got 117 total cards...a bunch of Heritage SPs and cards to help with set completions, new and old.

TCDB trade with Coach Barry

An awesome trade with Coach Barry!  He was able to knock off quite a few 2019 GQ needs off of my list!

It's been a slow TTM summer

I guess it's really my own fault, I haven't been able to send out many TTM envelopes due to an increase in job hours.  But, I have gotten to back in the last couple of months.  Slow, but it's better than none.
