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!

2016 Gypsy Queen

Gypsy Queen usually goes pretty fast around here and is hard to find, so I bought two boxes.  I didn't do that bad, if I do say so myself.  Here are my hits:




Short Print


Walk-off Winners



Glove Stories


Power Alley


Mini's

2016 Donruss

I am usually not a fan of the cards with no logos, however, I always manage to buy one pack a year of Donruss since they came back on the scene.  Here are my hits:

Happy birthday!!!

It was my birthday several weeks back, but I'm just now getting around to posting my presents.  My local LCS has always been out of Triple Threads as fast as he gets them, however, Amazon never fails.  Here are my hits out of two boxes of Triple Threads, as well as a free pack of 2008 Topps Co-Signers:

Another Toys R Us run

There has not been any cards to buy at the local Walmart, so I've been hitting up the Toys R Us to fill my needs.  I purchased another 2016 Topps Opening Day box and hiding in the back was a box of 2015 Topps Archives, and it was discounted!  I'm still missing quite a bit, so I was hoping for some Archives hits.

My Topps Redemption is finally here!

Remember back in February when I posted my hits from Topps Strata and Topps Five Star?  Well my redemption finally came in the mail the other day!!!  It's finally a player for my PC!!!


It's a bad scan, but it's a Matt Harvey Clearly Authentic Autographed Relic Red Majestic Logo Parallel!!!  This is probably my biggest hit ever!  The only bad thing is that it is in the plastic case, and it won't fit into my player collection page.

Logan Moon

A nice return from Royals minor leaguer Logan Moon.  There are several top prospects at NW Arkansas for the Royals (Bubba Starling, etc.)  I wish I could get local boy Bubba Starling for my collection!
