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 kcjays

 Another quick PWE trade with kcjays.  I was able to send him some Allen & Ginter inserts that I don't collect, while getting some PC needs in return.

My favorite card of the trade is the Salvy Big League.

2024 Heritage

Haven't found Topps Big League out in the wild of the big box stores, however, I did come across some Heritage today.  I think the best part of this set is the historical cards of the MVP players.  The catcher cards (in their gear) are nice.  I always like Heritage because it's easy for TTM cards.  Overall, an "eh" set this year.

First card

2nd pack

3rd pack

4th pack - I really hope this guy makes it.

5th pack - I really like this guy, too.

6th pack

7th pack
