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).

TCDB trade with StLMike

 A new trade partner in StLMike.  I  didn't have the Guentzel on my waitlist for some reason, but was able to get into the trade.  He's a UNO hockey alumni.

TCDB trade with NYYJMM

 A small trade, but a huge need accomplished.  One more off the 2017 Topps 1987 Insert list.

The Brett card is my favorite of the trade

Huge need!

TCDB trade with taxelson

 Another quick PWE trade.  I got quite a bit of help on my mega collections for the Royals.

Favorite card of the trade, and it wasn't even suppose to be in there!

TCDB trade with tcarter

 I believe tcarter is a new trade partner!  I've been targeting trade partners that have cards I need for mega collections, then fill in the trades with PC guys.

Card that started the trade...WKU baseball alumni

TCDB trade with Luckyday

 I've been rocking the PWE trades lately, but those are much easier for me to do right now.  I really like Stadium Club this year, but I wish the name was just a little bigger.

TCDB trade with JoeMeloni

 Almost didn't get this one done, as I am overwhelmed with trades on TCDB.  However, ended up with a pretty sweet card that has been hard for me to get to help me with my 2020 Bowman set.

TCDB trade with FiresNBeers

 I've traded with FiresNBeers before, but this was just a small PWE trade that help me fill some mega collection needs!

The Gordon A&G is probably my favorite card of the trade.


I've never seen this card before

TCDB with mrhaverkamp

 Another trade, this time with mrhaverkamp.  I recently put some mid-80's Rated Rookies and some late 80's Topps Traded on my want lists, and he was able to help me out.  I might start a little binder of "cards from my youth."

This card helped me start this trade.

TCDB trade with NYYJMM

 A small PWE trade with NYYJMM.  I really needed the 2017 Topps Josh Bell to help with the insert set!
