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).

Casey Blake was kind enough to sign my Upper Deck card in 10 days from his home in Iowa. I mentioned to Casey in my letter memories of the Wichita State baseball team playing in the College World Series in Omaha. He wrote me a short note back, which is below. Growing up in Iowa, I remember it seemed like Gene Stephenson took Wichita State to the College World Series every year. Shortly after receiving this card, his father passed away. Joe Blake was the pitching coach for the Simpson Storm in Indianola, IA.
