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 Topps Update

 I was never able to find any Topps Series 2 blaster boxes (or anything Series 2 for that matter), but was thrilled to see a box of Update.

The packs:

Pack 1

Pack 2

Pack 3

Pack 4 - I really like these No hitter cards!

Pack 5

Pack 6 - Not sure how I feel about the ASG cards being an insert set.

Pack 7

2021 Topps Archives

I had a pretty lucky day the other day.  Not only was my local Walmart stocked with cards, it was stocked with the newest Archives and Topps Update.  I have never found a Series 2 blaster, though.

Base cards - old dudes and the current guys

First card pulled

The Griffey is the card I pulled that I like the most.

Inserts - Boy!  Do I like all of the insert sets!  Hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to, I would pick the Bazooka set.

Cubs, Royals and mega collection goodies

I hate it that I like this card of Javy as a Met.

TCDB trade with Americana

 Another trade, many needs met with a new trade partner, Americana.  Not only did I meet some set needs, I also added quite a few football cards to my PCs.

The George Brett is my favorite card of the trade!

TCDB trade with madams30

 Another trade with trade partner madams30.  This trade started because he had some items for my mega collections.  I'm trying to prioritize my mega collections to either finish them or get them up to date.  Some of them are living collections that I update every year after the season.
