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).
I've been so busy, I haven't had time to update my blog as much as I would like. I actually completed this Zistle trade awhile ago, but I just haven't had the chance to get the cards scanned to show off. Rsgreen55 is a another trade partner who has helped me out before.
I was contacted about making a TTM trade via a fellow blogger, Spiff. His blog is over at Texas Rangers Cards. He contacted me about some Cubs autographs he had, and I offered up some of my Rangers. I was excited about this because I had tried twice to get Mike Harkey, but have had no response. Here's the goods:
He was also kind enough to send some Cubbies my way:
I was really excited about this card when I opened up the package. I have never seen this card before, so it's a awesome addition to my Mark Grace PC.
Quick return this week from John Jaso. He's currently with the free falling A's. I would really like to see Oakland return to the playoffs, but it seems the trade deadline and wavier moves they made are not going to be enough.
I was able to visit my LCS this spring and get pretty close to finishing up 2010 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects. I want to make some headway now on 2010 Topps Pro Debut. My LCS didn't have any boxes of Pro Debut to look through, so I have decided to buy a few of my needs off the Internet. This was my first purchase from Just Commons. I am pretty satisfied, with just one card looking a little less than perfect, but it's not bad. Here are a few of the notable cards I got:
I finally had the time the last couple of weeks to get caught up on some trades and mailing out a few more TTMs before the end of the season. I got this one back pretty quickly from Jason Hursh. He was drafted in the 1st round last year by the Braves. He has spent all year with Mississippi, posting a 11-7 record, 3.58 ERA, and 83 strike outs.
Sent c/o Mississippi Braves
