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 ChicoSportsCards

A new trade partner, ChicoSportsCards, sent me a bunch of great stuff for my PCs.

This is my favorite card in the trade.  It's beautiful in person!

TTM back from Donn Pall.  I loved it when the White Sox switched to these uniforms, although I didn't mind the old ones, either.

TCDB trade with FiresNBeers

A quick PWE trade with a familiar trade partner, FiresNBeers.


The Hosmer is probably my favorite card of the trade. I didn't realize that it was missing from my PC.

He also included some extra cards!

TCDB trade with 2822ams

So, like a fool, I decided this was the year I'd try to put together a Stadium Club set.  You know, a super great year to do it with easy to get and/or buy rookies like Rodriguez, Witt, etc.  🤯  Luckily, 2822ams helped me out in a big way with this, as well as some PC help.

This is my favorite card of the trade

Monthly card show pick ups

Another successful weekend at the card show!  I am always afraid I'm buying duplicates of what I have, but I kept it to under 5 cards today!  I'm calling that a win.  I'm not much for MMA, WWF, NASCAR, etc, and there are a lot of those cards out there and at my local card show.  I'm also not big on the NBA, with the exception of Iowa Hawkeye basketball alumni.  I have been rocking the NFL cards and adding to my PCs, especially Kittle, Hockenson and Fant. Here's a sampling of what I got.  

This card is very sharp in person.

2022 Stadium Club

FINALLY!  I found some at my local big box store.  There were only 2 blaster boxes, and I grabbed one.  I regret not buying the second.  Stadium Club is also one of the releases I really look forward to each year.  It's always nice not seeing the same Topps base photo on 100 different versions of Topps cards.  One day, I'd like to do put a set together.
