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).

2013 Topps Chrome

In the past, I haven't been a fan of Topps Chrome.  I really don't buy the product.  However, I really like the 2013 Topps design this year, and with the teaser photos Topps was posting on Twitter, I decided to buy this year.  I was at Wally World the other day, and saw a 3-fer pack that includes the 3 orange refractors.

Orange refractors:

Pack 1:  Not bad.   A Carlos Santana to add to the catchers collection.  I've been trying to decide if I want to start collecting Paul Goldschmidt cards or not.  If I do, this will be a nice one to add to the collection.

Pack 2:  A couple of rookies and a Cespedes 1972 Topps.  I have also been trying to decided if I want to start collecting Cespedes, as well.

Pack 3:  Winner winner chicken dinner!  A Trout Refractor, and two player collection Royals!  Score!

Overall, I like the cards I bought, and I might buy some more, but I will not try to complete the set.  Good job Topps.


  1. You shouldn't start a Goldschmidt collection. You should send them all to me. I'd be happy to trade you Royals and Cubs cards for any Goldschmidts you might have.
