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).

2022 Mosaic (at a discount)

 I had to go to the local big box store tonight to buy a printer cartridge so I can get reimbursed for my trip.  There was literally no new baseball, but I saw a box of last year's Mosaic for $17, so I bit.  It was an ok blaster box, not great, not terrible.

First pack, first card

Second pack

Third pack

Forth pack

Fifth pack

Sixth pack


Token catcher card

The only base hit I got
