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 long awaited trip to the LCS

I decided last week that even though I was still on crutches, I was going to go to the LCS and take a look at some stuff.  I really had nothing else to do, but yet,  I didn't want to buy cards that I didn't need out of boredom.  I did actually have a few "goals" for my trip; 1) 2012 Bowman Chrome inserts, 2) 2017 Topps Inserts, and 3) Anything new for the player collections.

I was pretty successful with the hunt for 2012 Bowman Chrome inserts.  I'm specifically collecting the two insert sets that were specific to the 2012 All Star Game held here in KC.  Here's a sampling of what I got, but, of course, guess who is in the set...Mike Trout.  It'll probably take awhile to get that one.

I also nabbed some 2017 Topps Inserts, but I didn't get as many as I had hoped.  My LCS usually has a ton of Topps Inserts.  Again, just a sample of what I got.

So, this Rizzo...it is very silver.  I placed it next to another Silver Slugger Award card, and it was not as silver as this one.  Is this a special card?  I have another Rizzo Silver Slugger in my PC, and it is also not as silver as this one.  Is there a special silver parallel that I don't know about? 
A surprise...2014 Topps Archives insert

A handful of Opening Day inserts.  This was also a nice surprise, as my LCS usually doesn't sell Opening Day.

Finally, I can never help myself, I bought some loose packs.  Not much to write home about, though.
