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).

622 days!

I don't know what's been up lately, but I have been receiving many TTMs back that I had long written off.  I have been just ecstatic that I have gotten these back!  I only send TTMs to the players I want, so when I don't get one back, I'm disappointed.  However, I received my longest TTM to date, 622 days!  Last year, I had read that Mike Mussina was a good signer.  When a couple of months rolled by, I figured my cards were gone.  The Orioles are one of my favorite teams, so that is why I wanted Mr. Mussina's autograph.  I am SO glad to have gotten these cards back.  I always like the 1994 Pinnacle set.

Now, a quick return from Shawn Barton.  He was a prospect in the Mets system before being traded to the Mariners.  I'm going to add the minor league card to my Mets TTM collection!  The signatures came back a little smudged.

Mike Birkbeck sent me a card I had never seen before, his 1989 Donruss.  He kept my duplicate 1988 Donruss I sent him.  I must say, I like Mike without the 'stach!

Lastly, my fourth return from the Arizona Fall League.  I only sent 6 out this year, so percentage wise, I'm not doing too bad.  David Adams is a prospect for the New York Yankees.  Another signed 2010 Pro Debut for my collection!

  1. Nice Mike Mussina return! I've been meaning to send him a TTM for a while now but it seemed like he stopped signing a little while back. Could you email me the address you used?
