    2017 hobby or non hobby goals

    with a handful of days remaining in 2016 it's time to hope and dream about all the good stuff that going to happen for us in the coming year. I'll get it started.

    I've learned in the 2 short years I've been a part of this thread. the more vague I am, the more successful I am

    1) keep plugging away at my PC and hopefully finish at least one years worth of signatures. 2016 saw HUGE strides in my collection.

    2)get supplies and have everything mini snap tite, labeled and team bagged.

    3)pick up 3-5 hof patches. not a serious PC but one I am working on slowly

    4) personally, I really need to lose about 30-40 lbs. if I can do that I'll reward myself

    I have three collections that I take "seriously" as serious as a hobby gets I suppose, and one that I half-heartedly indulge when I'm bored.

    1-Tim Wakefield, there are only 50 or so non 1/1s I don't own. I'm aiming to add 6 cards to my total, feels low but I just don't see much come up I don't own.
    2- Craig Biggio, reach 1500 different cards (add 300ish).
    2b-Complete 1999 Topps Tek base and add 2 gold's
    2c-Reach 70 of 90 1998 Topps Tek base patterns and add three diffractors.
    3-Red Sox HOF, add herb pennock and IRA flagstead.
    4-HOF Rookies-Add 5 to reach a total of 40.

    Looking at my list I should be cutting down on spending...I doubt that happens so I might just surpass my goals quickly.

    2.Get the farm sold to a family member(s) that want to have it.
    3.Help my mother almost 77 diversify her holding (mainly property) needs to be sold or split up.....Her words not mine.
    4.Finish up the rest of our 5 year plan on house (3 1/2 Years in) and would like to end it 2017 and just might too.
    5.And upgrade 5 1/2 year plan( that's what's left) for retirement at least for me (almost 54 I'm out at 59 1/2) or full time anyway... the wife says she going to work until 67 she is nutty for sure.
    6.Volunteer more to the people and places I do now.

    3. Get organized

    Non-hobby goals-

    Get rid of a lot of stuff I'm not PCing. Take pictures with my daughter and more minor league players and get 8x10s signed. Help other dads get their kids into the hobby by sending more cards. Non hobby, take Sundays off to have at least one family day

    Collecting: Phil Bickford, Brandon Wood (still), Yankees and Rockies
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Well i am already retired so i would like to hit the lottery. Then finish my Bernie collection.
    Then have a sleep over with Rhonda Rousey, which would probably kill me.
    The end.

    3 - Get to over 2000 cards on the Mo PSA Master & Super Set Registries.
    4 - Buy another perfectly centered PSA 8 1960 Mantle after I had to sell one a few years ago at 1/3 the price I'll pay for one now.

    2016 was epic, I was able to attend the National. My 2017 goals will be a bit more modest.

    1. Attend 2-3 local card shows
    2. Build Yankees team sets from the 1950s and 1960s
    3. Complete the 1970s, down to 9 cards
    4. Pick Yankees Heritage & Topps SP/variations from recent years
    5. Pick up 1-2 high-end Yankees autographs
    6. Sell extras and non-PC items


    The persistent, perhaps pathological, pursuit of pinstriped players.
