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).

Another (!) NPN

This NPN is from 2018 Topps Opening Day.  I am very happy with my NPN response rate this year!

TCDB trade with bravefan1

Another small trade with bravefan1.  I think this almost completes my PC needs for 2018 Topps Chrome!

One for the Catcher binder

A few 2018 Topps, including the Cahill for my Royals mega collection

A.J. Minter

Another MLB TTM request back this weekend!  Finally, I feel like I'm getting rewarded for writing all those letters and buying all those stamps!  I really made a big push this MLB season sending out requests, and my percentage is not great so far.

TCDB trade with BobbyL

Just a small PWE trade...but sometimes, those are the best!  I was able to get quite a few player collection needs from 2017 Topps Chrome.  Last year, I had a heck of a time trying to find any in my big box stores!

NPN surprise!

I got a huge NPN surprise in the mail last week.  Usually, I get NPN's from the sets that are not the "big" sets, i.e. Topps base, but...here is one from the 2018 Heritage base...Corey Seager SP!
