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).

When Panini gives you a lemon, they also make you some lemonade!

I follow quite a few fellow Bloggers and sports card people on Twitter, and I had read some poor reviews regarding 2019 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball.  For $20, you get 5 cards, and most were unhappy with that, which I agree.  But, low and behold, I was at Target and couldn't resist new product.  Out of the 5 cards, one was a relic, but this is what it looked like:

There was no relic in there!  I filed a QA ticket with Panini.  I didn't have much hope for this to be fruitful because I had not read any good reviews on dealing with Panini.  However, after filing on January 2, this week, I received a package from Panini that included this:

I couldn't believe it!  I got two cards, and one is a Royal!  I had to do some reading on Miguel Hiraldo, but it looks like he's doing well in the Blue Jays system.  Thank you Panini!

    Kudos to Panini for coming through with the compensation, though.
