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).

Observations:
  • I'm not sure how I feel about the rookie debut cards...most players get two cards in the update series with this card and their rookie card.  Surely, someone else deserves a card?!
  • Favorite player on the page:  Jody Davis (was always sad that he went to the Braves)
  • Favorite card on the page:  1989 Topps Traded Len Dykstra
  • Card most likely to get bumped:   2018 Topps Update Felipe Vazquez
