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 La Loosh

This was a great trade!  I was able to get some cards that go towards my 2018 goals and some player collection needs.  I was able to complete the 2017 Topps Bowman Then and Now insert set!  One insert set down, many to go!  Several awesome cards to go with my player collections, as well.

2017 Topps Insert Set needs:








Cubbies










Royals

TCDB trade with dsorek

Another small PWE trade, this time with dsorek.  There were quite a few Cubs "First Pitch" cards in the 2016 Topps insert set, and this is one I was wanting to add.

TCDB trade with yankees234221

It's the new year, and I made some unofficial goals for the year, but decided to hold myself accountable and put them on the blog.  They are under the Goals/Stats tab, if you're interested.  I also updated my TTM stats, and I'm happy to say, several of my percentages increased.  One way to complete those goals is to make goal specific trades, regardless of small PWE trades or big trades.   One of the people who had what I needed was yankees234221.  Being a Yankees fan, he, of course, wanted a Stanton card in return.  With Stanton going to the Yankees, hopefully I'll be able to trade some of his cards off!  In return, he sent me one of my set needs, and a PC need.

John Wathan

My first TTM back in 2018...from local guy and former Royals player and manager, John Wathan.  I got the 1982 Donruss card during the All Star Festival in 2012 when the All Star Game was here in Kansas City.

A small COMC purchase

I made just a small COMC purchase after Christmas.  My husband is now into buying graded hockey cards, and he wanted me to buy one for him, so while he shopped, I also shopped!  I got several set needs, along with some PC goodies!
