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).

Former I-Cub in the mail!!!

Today's mail was really special. I got back Phil Stephenson. He played for the Iowa Cubs back in the late-80's. When I was a kid, we'd go to some I-Cub games. He was the first-ever autograph I ever got, in-person at a Chicago Cubs vs. Iowa Cubs exhibition game in 1989. It was through the fence before the gates opened. He was great. Phil is now the head baseball coach at Dodge City Community College in Dodge City, KS.
