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).

Oh no! My kryptonite...1987 Topps!

 I was surprised to see 2022 Topps Archives blasters out, but then again, it was on 2022 Topps Update release day.  🤷  I decided to pick a box from the back to see if I could get lucky.

Gosh darn it, I guess I'll have to collect these 100 cards.

I need 7 more!

I bought this off of eBay a couple of weeks ago.  I know I'll never build the "rainbow," but I'd love to get a total of 20 of these to display in my good 'ole frame from Michaels.  If you can help a gal out, please see my tab titled "Sets I'm Trying To Complete."

2022 Topps Fire

I wasn't in love with the design this year, but now that I have them in hand, I do like them.  I feel like Topps Fire is a lot like Topps Lineage (which by the way, I wish they'd bring back); it's nice to look at a different design and picture other than the same picture that Topps uses in all their sets for the year.

Base cards.  I really like the bottom design.

Monthly card show

 I haven't been able to go to the card show in the last two months, so I've been itching to go.  My favorite dealer actually had two tables this month, and he will next month, too.  He had so many boxes, I didn't get through them all!  Here's some of my goodies:

SP Bryant

Got all the really expensive cards for the Series 1 set

Snagged the Hamilton SP for $0.25

The O'Hearn is pretty

The Mark Grace is a nice card

Love the Bundy

Didn't have the McGwire

Got the Morel to add to my Cubs mega collection

My two favorite football players

Plucked for $2

2022 Topps Gallery

I saw Gallery was coming out, but I was hesitant to buy any because I had just come off of my terrible 2022 Topps Chrome blaster box.  However, I saw some pictures of this year's Gallery and I loved the design!  It's probably the best design in quite a while, in my opinion.

Pack 2

Pack 3

Pack 4

The other Stuff
