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).

TCDB trade with belijr

I had to go to Las Vegas for work for a week, and I was so excited to get home and have a padded envelope waiting for me!  belijr hooked me up with Archives and Heritage from this year.

One thing I'd like to start doing (and I think I may have mentioned it earlier this year, but I haven't been doing it) is recognizing my favorite card of the trade.  This sweet Willie Wilson is my favorite card of this trade!

Another NPN! I'm on a roll this year!

I've received 4 NPN cards this year, which is my most successful year to date.  So far, I have received cards from Opening Day, Heritage, Bowman, and now Allen & Ginter.  They aren't bad cards, either.  I've received either insert cards or SPs (this one is an SP of Erick Fedde).  Topps changed the address, and now I'm hypothesizing that my envelopes are actually making it to the right bin at Topps.

TCDB trade with SDre31

A wonderful surprise..SDre31 from Zistle reached out to me on TCDB to do a trade.  We traded several times over on Zistle and I was so happy to see a familiar name!  I sent him a bunch of alt. uniform cards, while he sent me these goodies:
