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).

A quick trip to my local LCS

I was "down south" the other day, and decided I had a little time to hit up my favorite LCS.  I was looking for some Bowman since it was just released, and also ended up with some other goodies!

This is one of my "white whales" from my youth...I couldn't find it for trade or a good price on COMC, so I went to see how much it was at the LCS, and I jumped.
