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 Panini Prizm Draft Picks

 Even though this is a 2021 product, I have a soft spot for college cards.  The price tag on these college blaster boxes is always high, that's why I usually just buy one!

2020 Bowman

 Finally, I found some Bowman!  I hesitate, briefly, at the now $25 price tag on blaster boxes, but I'm a sucker!

Expiring rebate money

 I had some rebate money from some contacts I bought last fall.  Not sure why it took me so long to spend it, but it did, and I almost lost the money!  I was hoping to use it on COMC, but because it was expiring, it wouldn't let me add it to my COMC account, so instead I went shopping on eBay for some needs I had.

One of two Judge's I need for this insert set from 2017.

2022 Gypsy Queen

 I always enjoy Gypsy Queen every year.  There were a few years where I didn't care for the design, but I still love how they feel in my hands and they look great with TTM autos on them.
