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).

My first TCDB trade in almost a year!

Mookie333 reached out to me for a trade, along with many other people.  I'm trying to get to them, but it can be overwhelming when you have an inbox full of trade requests.

2021 Gypsy Queen

 I saw on a Twitter post that Target actually had cards/blaster boxes for sale, and at the right price (normal and not jacked up).  I snagged two 2021 Gypsy Queen blaster boxes.

First two cards out of each blaster box

Catcher collection

SP - I love this card!  I'm glad they are showing some love to Kirby!


Player collections

One green card per pack

These blue cards are pretty!

Tim Wallach

I was surprised to see this TTM back after such a long time!  I just love 1989 Upper Deck!

A couple of eBay purchases

I found a few wants and needs via eBay.  I got a great deal on the Bowman Platinums, but  I paid more than I wanted on the Bellinger.  I am now down to needing just 1 for my 2017 Topps Update 1987 insert set.

My first purchase in my new town, part 2

Like I said yesterday, I couldn't help myself and bought football cards, which I would normally not buy.  I bought a fat pack of Panini Chronicles.  I think my favorite cards are the Score 2021 Rookie and the Select cards.

My first purchase in my new town, part 1

 We've lived here for a little over 2 months, and just like Kansas City, there is nothing on the big box store shelves.  I have not looked up any LCS yet.  I should probably get a job before I go buying overprices packs and cards...LOL!  I was at the store the other day, and low and behold, I found some 2021 A&G.  I didn't realize how desperate I was to buy cards, that I bought some football cards, too!  😬  I do like the looks of some of the insert sets, as well as how the MLB alumni look on their cards (especially those SP's).  It's nice to see something other than a "pose."
