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).

Monthly card show pick-ups

 I just love my "vendor by the door!"  He is a smart guy and is fair.  He always brings new stuff, and I'm developing quite a rapport with him.  In fact, we were able to make a deal for some cards I really need for my PC.  I like to have an auto and relic of every team the players in my PC plays for.  These two cards are huge pick-ups for me, following the Kris Bryant my vendor sold me last month.

The rest of my goodies:

Interesting pick-up

I collecting anything to do with the ASG held in KC

Of course I'm going after the 2022 1987 Insert set

Needed this to help complete Series 1

2022 Topps Cubs team set

 I usually don't buy the team sets when I see them, but I was jonesin for some cards and this years set happens to have several Cubs cards I need for my mega collection that are not, and probably will not be in any 2022 sets as Cubs.

New (to me) LCS

 I decided to visit my first LCS in Omaha last week.  There are several stores here, but I have been so successful at the monthly card show, I haven't felt the need to visit a shop.  Unfortunately, I didn't have much time to spend, but I found quite a few cards for my PCs.  I am usually pretty bad at picking out cards I need for my PCs, especially when I don't have time to search on my phone to see if I have it or not.  I actually did quite well today!  I will be going back to The Card Shop soon!

Alex Liddi

 My first TTM back from my 2022 attempts.  I always thought this was a great action card!

Bobby Witt, Jr.

 I usually take this dip about once a year, and only for a card that I would value in one of my PCs.

2021 Big League

 I drank the Kool-aid!  I am not down with a set being released a year late, but I do love the Big League cards.

First card

Inserts - I love them, except the Souvenirs set.  I like the concept, but not the design.

Orange cards in blaster box

PC cards

Catcher collection
