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 triplecrown

A nice trade with a new trade partner.  Got some great stuff back that there is no way I would pull all of this from a blaster box.


Another one towards the set collection

Gold for the PC

My favorite card of the trade...loved it when the parallels were simpler


TCDB trade with doublee99

A quick PWE trade with a Cal Ripken, Jr. collector.  I love trades where my cards can help a PC like this!

2023 Stadium Club

A 2023 release in 2024, and only weeks before 2024 Topps Flagship release!  It's a good thing it's Stadium Club, which I love.

First card, first pack...soon to be HOF Joe Mauer

Second pack...another HOFer...not bad, but I am noticing a huge trend in horizontal cards

3rd pack...I love the 80's uni

4th pack...more horizontal

5th pack...Kauffman Stadium as a nice backdrop

6th pack...old Angels uni and logo

7th pack...another nice background, but again, more horizontal

8th pack

Player collections

Catcher binder

Former Cubbies

Salvy doing Salvy things



Love the old school uni

February card show round up

I'm happy to report, I only spent $21, but got a ton of cards for my PCs.  This is great because I didn't have to pay as much as a blaster box would've cost, and every card I need for one reason or another (well, most anyway).

My first flag parallel

This is what I call prospecting; picking up cheap Bowman cards of prospects on my teams that I root for when I can't find a box of Bowman to save my life.

My first 3D card

I have a small collection of holo cards that love to collect.

Set needs

Couldn't hardly buy any LaPorta last month; got my hands on 3 of them this month!

Royals PC needs

Old dude PC needs

Cubbie PC needs

PC refractor

I love it when a color parallel matches the team colors
