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).

Has anyone who uses Zistle had any issues with accessing the website the last couple of days?  It was still up on Monday, as I got a trade proposal that morning, however, I came home from work Monday night, and can't access the site to complete a trade.  It is now Thursday, and the site is still down for me.  Is this happening for other Zistle users???


  1. It's down for everyone. Zistle apparently hasn't updated their security certificates.

  2. They also got bought out by Beckett, so that might have something to do with it.

  3. If you set the date/clock on your computer back to 10/10, you should be able to get in. At least that's how it worked for me in Chrome.

  4. You can also use IE to get around the certificate. If you do that, you will login at a unsecure HTTP: page, as opposed to a secure HTTPS:, but thems the breaks right now.

  5. Hi LV -- like JediJeff, I found that you can use Internet Explorer to access it. You should export/download all of your data (Collection, WantList, Tradelist) to a local file NOW since Zistle is dying/almost dead. Josh and Ashley are no longer running it, and its future is still in doubt. There has been no communication from them, or from their a-hole Beckett conquerors.

    Let me know if you need any help doing that export.

  6. Looks like it is back up today, weird things going on

  7. Hey LV,

    I think we had a trade going on Zistle before it all hit the fan. I don't know if you're still planning on using Zistle, but I'm still open to completing the trade through the site or outside of it. My Zistle ID is tntcardsstg

    My blog is bumpandruncards.blogspot.com and my email is tntcardsstg at gmail if you would like to communicate outside of Zistle.
