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 and The Trading Card Database for trading purposes (stevienicks77).

A huge Sportslots pick up

With the lack of blasters, hangers, etc. to buy, I'm really hitting websites to help me complete some mega collections, and get some 2020 cards for my player collections.  This was a huge buy, but I'm happy I was able to knock off quite a few needs!

A few eBay pick ups

I've been using money I would normally spend on blasters on things that benefit my collections and player collections.  This batch is from eBay and I love all this stuff!

A quick visit to the LCS

 I ran over to my LCS because I needed some one touch holders for some cards I purchased off of eBay (post coming later).  He recently expanded his store, which is awesome!  He had some great boxes to sort through, which he never had room for before, and that is my bread and butter because my player collections are quite unique!  Here's some of the goodies I got:

2020 Panini Elite Extra Edition

 For some reason when I'm at Walmart or Target, I still gravitate to the card section, even though it has essentially been bare since April.  I picked up some 2020 Panini Elite Extra Edition; I like these cards because I like to see players in their college uniforms.  Even though the blaster box is quite pricy for what's in the package ($20 for 5 cards), I love that you're always guaranteed a relic and/or auto.  I did pull a Torkelson!
