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).

2014 Gypsy Queen

I have been having a very hard time tracking down the new sets that have come out.  2014 Topps Series 1 and Heritage are all over the place, but I can't find Gypsy Queen or Opening Day anywhere!  I had been scoping out my usual spot for buying cards (Walmart), but they hardly have any cards AT ALL lately!  There has been nothing to buy; good for my wallet, bad for my collection!   I finally had to go to Target last week, and I found both Gypsy Queen and Opening Day.  I will post about GQ today, and Opening Day tomorrow.   I know my posts about new products are way behind everyone else, but I haven't been able to find it until now!

Player collections.  I find it interesting that McGwire is in an Oakland uniform and not a St. Louis one.  I'm glad is Oakland, though; I don't have any of his cards in my collection with him in a Cardinals uni.

Short Prints:

Catcher cards:

Red Mini:  99/99

Minis:  The Cuddyer is a SP.


I like this new set.  I wish it had more cards in it.  I could see 50-60 cards they could potentially produce for this insert set.

Blue Framed:  97/499

I might buy another rack pack or two of GQ, but that will be about it for the year.


  1. Are you interested in trading the short prints?

  2. Yeah, let's set something up on Zistle.
