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).

It's been a slow TTM summer

I guess it's really my own fault, I haven't been able to send out many TTM envelopes due to an increase in job hours.  But, I have gotten to back in the last couple of months.  Slow, but it's better than none.

Since I've been working so hard...it was time for a COMC purchase!

I work in healthcare and the hospital I work at is so short staffed that we have not been granted PTO all summer.  And, we have been getting called in every day we are on call, so I've been pulling over 60 hours a week this summer and it's no fun.  Add the stress of your vacation getting denied and then add all of your co-workers stress from being overworked, understaffed and no vacation for them, either, and it's a volatile environment right now.  So, I took some of that on call money and bought some cards on COMC.  I barely had the time to shop for these cards!

2019 Stadium Club

OMG!  I love Stadium Club!  I think the photos are sharp and great!  I like the fact that Stadium Club is just so different than the Topps flagship.  As much as I love getting parallels, it is always nice to have a different photo in my player collections.  It reminds me of the days of Donruss, Fleer, Score, Topps and Upper Deck.  You always had different photos in your album.  Granted, you have Donruss and other brands these days, but sometimes I can't get over no logo.
