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'm starting to knock out some of those Zistle trades that have been in sitting there since last year. Thank you to everyone for being patient with me. Last year, I was taking two Master's classes a semester, planning a wedding, and went through an accreditation site visit (which was successful - maximum 10 years reaccreditation)! This year is starting out smoother; just one more class and I graduate with my Master's Degree in May! Now, if I could just get rid of my work stress and work "normal" work hours, life would really be great!
Anyway, let me show you the awesome stuff I got from Hittinaway!
Royals. I have never seen or heard of the Topps Rookie of the Week card/set. I love this George Brett card.
Player Collection goodies
Old guys. The McGwire SP card is a hologram that is really cool!
I got some awesome gifts for Valentine's Day. I got a box of 2015 Topps Strata and 2015 Topps Five Star! Here's my goodies:
2015 Five Star
Rainbow Autograph 12/25
Topps Strata Autograph Blue 20/99
My second card out of the Strata pack is a redemption card. Of course, I know who it is, but I'm going to wait to reveal it until I receive it. I'll give you a hint, it's someone in my player collection!
I can't wait!!!
So, here is my 2016 Topps Series 1 post. I have been shut out at Walmart for all baseball cards since before Christmas. I'm not sure what's going on there, but they have a few hockey, football, and some Magic cards. No repacked baseball or nothing. So, Monday night last week, I walked into Target to get a few things, and I saw it...it was so great to see some actual baseball cards available to buy. I bought a $20 box, because you know, I couldn't resist.
Ole Miss Alumni, MLB Player Collection, and Cubbie Player Collection
Token catcher card. As I look through the photos of 2016 Topps, their are some pretty cool catcher cards in there.
Token Gold card out of the box.
I love this insert set! Yah! The Cubs getting some love from Topps! It's actually just another way to make another Kris Bryant card!
Topps went with the First Pitch subset again. This lady is nothing short of amazing for everything she has overcome.
Walk off Wins
Back To Back
Berger's Best. Eh.
Pressed Into Service. Pretty cool story on the back.
MLB Debut. I pulled a Jayson Werth Debut card, and it actually had the Blue Jays logo as of 2003 on it. Nice detail, Topps.
Wacky Promos. Wacky indeed.
MLB Debut Medallion. Eh, I really have no use for these cards that Topps continues to pack into these packs.
