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).

A couple of TTMs and trades

A couple of exciting things in the mail this week.  First up, is some Cubs cards that I got through TTM from Bill Long.  I targeted Bill because he was a former Cub.  He tenure with the Cubs wasn't long, but I still wanted his signature.

Bill Long
Signed 4/4

Next up, a return from an MLB player.  I had read that Bud Smith signs, and he returned my card!

Bud Norris
Signed 1/1
Sent c/o Houston Astros
63 days

Finally, I completed two Zistle trades.   These were super exciting because I completed my 2011 Allen & Ginter main set (YEAH!) and I was able to pick some some sweet cards for my player collections.

Here is the loot from my first trade:

Here's SOME of the loot from the second trade:

I picked up more cards than this, and the important ones were the two 2011 Allen & Ginter SP cards I was missing.  Again, picked up some cards for my player collections, which can be found on the right hand side of this blog.
