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!

Another return from last year!

First up today, Juan Pierre. I had heard he was a good signer, and he didn't disappoint! The signature is a little smuged from all the gloss!

More heritage cards back!

Today, I got a letter back from Aaron Laffey. He signed (2) 2009 Heritage cards, one a team card. I personally like the 2011 Heritage better, but its always nice to see something a little different!

My first card from the AFL!

My first card back from the 6 I sent to the Arizona Fall League! Thanks Scooter Gennett!! The card came back with a small bend in it ( you can see it on the right upper 1/3 of the card). :(
I still enjoy the mail back, though!
