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).

2020 Big League

I saw some awesome reviews on 2020 Big League, so I couldn't wait until I could get my hands on it.  However, I thought it would be awhile because my Target and Walmart are both desolate when it comes to having cards stocked.  I was able to find one this week while getting groceries; I was so excited that I forgot to look to see what "card" was on the back!  I'll show you who I got, although I am kicking myself for not looking for a Trout!
