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).

2021 Top 5 (err, 2) TTMs

I almost forgot to do my countdown lists for the year!  This particular list will not be long because I only got two TTMs back this year.  I didn't send out many with moving to a different state, so I don't anticipate the beginning of 2022 to be very fruitful, either.

My first card show in Omaha!

I wasn't going to go, especially since it's almost Christmas, and I just made a huge COMC order, and I had Sportslots PWE's coming, but I thought what the heck, I'll check it out.  I'm glad I did!  I love searching boxes not only at my LCS, but at card shows, too.  That's where I get the most bang for my buck, as well as what I'm looking for to enhance my collections.  I only visited two tables before I decided to call it a day.  I purchased 160 cards at one table, and there wasn't anything to carry them in, and I didn't think to bring anything with me...oops.  Next time, I'd like to go back to one of the same tables I was at and search his football boxes!

This will be added to my KC All Star Game collection

The only two cards I could find for mega collections

The scan is poor, but the Bryant card is awesome!

Another Sportslots order!

 I tend to always hit up Sportslots when I can't get certain cards I need for my collections via trade.  I was able to knock off quite a few needs for my Cubs, Royals and college baseball alumni collections!  I always fill in the purchase with some PC players!  I also targeted football player collections this time, too.

Player collections

I don't tend to collect his Twins cards, but this is a nice looking all star card.  

I hardly have any current Cubs in my Cubs collection, so I think I'll start "prospecting" (to an extent).
