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!

Jack McDowell

I was excited to get another TTM envelope in the mail this week.  I haven't been able to send out as many as I had hoped this year, but this was a nice return.

Target repack

I wasn't feeling well last week, so I popped into Target to get a few items.  I have never really looked at the repack boxes at Target until today, and the only reason it caught my eye was the fact that the box said "relic."  I decided to bite and here's what I got:


2 1990 Upper Deck packs




 4 packs 2016 Babe Ruth


2 packs 1990 Fleer



5 packs 2015 Topps Series 2


4 packs 2015 Panini Draft Picks



2 packs 2015 Heritage


Finally, my relic is...

2016 Bowman Platinum

Bowman Platinum was always the Bowman product I liked the best when I got back into collecting around 2010-2011.  I was disappointed when it went off the market, but I was happy to see it was back out.  Now all I need is for Bowman to keep it coming every year!

Another trade partner from Zistle, SDre31, was able to help me with quite a few needs, particularly my Royals frankenset.

Zistle trade with dannicole2112

I was able to do a few trades during September, but I was not able to do as many as I had wished.  This was a small trade with dannicole2112.  Most of the cards I got were for my player collections, while I hooked up my trade partner with some Cincinnati Reds!
