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).

First post in a long time

I realized I haven't posted in a while, however, that's because I hadn't gotten anything back! :(
Anyway, I received one this week...Jim Walewander. I wanted Jim's autograph because he played his collegiate ball at Iowa State University. I also sent out autograph requests to the Arizona Fall League this week. I was unsure about sending them, but I had saw on another blog that they did it and got mail back. Let's hope I get some mail back, too!!!

Terry Puhl was one I also got back this week. I had read that he was a good signer, and he didn't disappoint! I love the 1986 Topps and the auto on it!!

Next up, Joel Hanrahan. He's originally from Iowa, so that's why I went after his signature. Nice looking card, signature, and nice season for the Pirates!

Last, but not least, Gary DiSarcina. He's currently in the front office for the LA Angels. This is another one back from my target of trying to collect a coach/manager/front office/broadcaster from each team. I still have 24 I'm waiting on. I'm at 24% so far.
