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).

2024 Big League

I've always been a fan of Big League.  I was just so-so on this year's design, but now that I have some in hand, I really like it.  I've considered putting a base set together, but I probably won't because my collecting goals are changing every year.  He's the goodies I got:

An SP and a Cub as the first card?  Not bad

2nd pack - I love the Marlins throw back uni's

3rd pack

4th pack

5th pack

6th pack

7th pack

8th pack

9th pack

10th pack

Royals PC

PC guy


SPs - one per pack!

Orange SP

Orange parallel

I really like these inserts...it's my favorite of the set!

TCDB trade with ChicagoPatla

Quick, PWE trade of 1983 Fleer cards.  Got another of my favorite catcher, Gary Carter.  Not sure why the scan came out so white, but I can assure you it is the color of 1983 Fleer.
