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 Awesomo1389

 A fabulous trade with Awesomo1389!  I got a lot of 2022 Stadium Club cards that I need for my set.

Surprisingly, this is my favorite card of the trade.  It has a different feel to it; thick card stock.  I typically don't like non-logo cards, but this is different.

2022-2023 Bowman Inception

I bit the bullet and bought a box of Bowman Inception.  I am really hunting the Caitlin Clark card and was wishing and hoping to get it, which I did not.  Since I'm not familiar with college hoops, I'm not sure how I did.

TCDB trade with heattreat

Another new trade partner, heattreat.  I was able to send him a bunch of Twins while he helped me out with 2022 Topps insert sets.

Favorite card of the trade

Only need two more to finish off the 1987 part of 2022 Archives!

Sending this for at TTM try

2023 Heritage

I still can't find any 2023 Bowman, so Heritage will have to do.  I always like Heritage, mostly because I like they way they feel and they are easy, no prep TTM cards.  The only downfall to this year's design is that it feels familiar from Archives.
