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 disappointing Just Commons purchase
Last weekend, I was scouring Zistle to find trade partners for the sets I need to complete. Several of the sets are pretty tough through Zistle, like 2010 Bowman Draft, any of the Archives, and 2010 Topps Pro Debut. I looked for cards I needed for the sets, as well as duplicates I need for my personal collection. When I put my order in, Just Commons send me an email, and could only provide me with 1 copy and not multiples of the cards I requested. The Billy Butler you see below has surface damage (not picked up by the scanner) and one of the 2010 Bowman Draft cards I received had a bad machine cut on the bottom of it. Has anyone ever experienced this before from Just Commons? I have made a couple of orders through there and everything had been very positive (good cards and ability to order multiple of cards) until now. Anyway, here's what I got (and I have updated my wants page):
2015 Archives (damaged Billy Butler and could not get me 2 JFK's nor Billy)
