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 marcbrubaker

 I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love finding and trading with team collectors, and I was able to get marcbrubaker a bunch of Astros for the playoffs, while he send me a variety of goodies.

Iowa Hawkeye women's BB alumni

Royals mega collection


Insert set needs

TCDB trade with Tjernst2

I have set I try to complete and just when I'm getting close or down, I pick more to complete.  I also go in waves with my trades to seek out cards needed for my mega collections.  This trade was a combo of needs. 

Royals and Cubs mega collections

Creighton Blue Jay baseball alumni

Even though its not for a PC, the Gooden card is my favorite of the trade.

2023 Allen & Ginter

When I opened my first pack, this was the first card...

Needless to say, I was feeling pretty good about my decision to buy a blaster box.  It ended up pretty good for me, but not much for my PCs.

First pack

Second pack

Third pack

Forth pack; you'd think he's have enough FB cards that he wouldn't need a card in a baseball set

Fifth pack

Sixth pack

Seventh pack

Eighth pack



This was a pleasant surprise!


PC cards - may start one of Ragans; he's pitching well for the Royals since being traded to KC

Another mixed bag of needs.  Great stuff! 

Cubs and Royals mega collection needs.  The Eaton card is my favorite of the trade.
