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 for trading purposes (stevienicks77).

I am currently in graduate school, so it may take me until the weekend to respond to trade requests! I can't get done with school soon enough!

What is up with the Texas Rangers??

Lots of mail at the end of last week. However, I received mail back from Mike Napoli, however, he sent a card that was signed like I received from Ian Kinsler. I couldn't tell if Kinsler's was autopened or not, but I can tell that Napoi's is not. I wished he would have just signed my card! :( I had read on the internet that he was a good signer of cards. Oh well! Thanks to everyone else that returned mail this week.

One back from Spring Training send outs!

I received Ian Kinsler in the mail on Saturday! He didn't sign my card, however, he sent one of his cards in return. I'm not sure if its an actual autograph or autopen. It included a piece of paper that stated he is unable to sign items that come in because he gets too much fan mail.
