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).

Happy Birthday to me, Part 1

My birthday was back in April, but with everything going on, my husband said my present will be delayed.  I expected this and quite frankly, I didn't care what it was or that I was getting one at all with my mind on the ever-changing environment at the hospital.  Plus, we were able to get some Jack Stack BBQ curbside, so I thought that was a great present in itself.  Then, yesterday happened.  He said my gift had arrived, and it was this...

Whoa!  TOTALLY wasn't expecting it at all; quite shocked really.  The next decision was do I open it or sell it?  With the crazy prices on cards these days, especially with this release of Bowman, I wasn't sure what to do.  I could have just held on to it and take some time to make a decision, however, I don't do well with cards that just sit unopened...that's why I never have any unopened packs or boxes!

So...I decided to open it.  My rationale was he had bought me a Bowman Draft hobby box back in 2011, and in that box I got the Christan Yelich chrome auto that I sold for $400 on eBay.  Hopefully, I can turn another profit, if I want to.

Finally, the 3 autographs...


  1. Interesting pulls.

    That Vaughn pull isn't bad at all and the best of your three autos, but unfortunately he already had a 1st Bowman Chrome autograph in 2019 Draft so this one won't be worth as much as that one would be.

    Cotton's an interesting prospect but none of his listings have ended yet (nothing comparable anyway) so how his market shakes out is yet to be determined.

    Mario Feliciano is a guy I like but his card value isn't too high. Mainly because he's a Brewer.

  2. Looks like it was a fun rip, and Happy belated Birthday.
