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!

Kurt Stillwell

The third TTM I got back in December was from Kurt Stillwell.  This is a great addition to my Royals autograph collection!  At 322 days, I was about ready to write this one off!

Nate Schierholtz

The second TTM I got back in the mail in December was a envelope from Nate Schierholtz.  These are a nice addition to my Cubs auto collection!  The Heritage card looks great!

It's been awhile...

I know it's been awhile since I last posted.  I know I haven't been able to do any trading on Zistle, nor send out any TTMs.  I started a new position at work on December 1, and I have been doing almost 12 hour days, Monday thru Friday.  That's one way to kill any hobby time!  Then, Christmas came.  I was in Mexico over the holidays!  It was a much needed vacation!  However, at the beginning of 2015, it was back to the grind.  I have a feeling January and February won't leave me much time for sending TTMs or do much trading.  For the time being, I will try to keep up with the TTMs I receive in the mail and post on my blog.  I do have three that I got back in December, but again, I just haven't had time to post until now.

The first one, I got back the week of Christmas.  This one I had written off a long time ago.  It was nice to get this one back!
