    Continue on with PSA vintage, Rookies and cheap but cool inserts. The wallet will be tighter this year but hoping to sell off stuff that I don’t want for the cards that I do. I’d like to land at least one big vintage card this year that has eluded me (there are several). It would be great to stockpile some PayPal. Aside from that, to finally be organized would be glorious.

    Add at least 300 different cards to the Pujols PC, which would put me over 1300. I started the process of selling off all my other Cardinals and will look to continue that in 2018. Also hoping that Carson Kelly finally gets a licensed RC in 2018.
    PC: Albert Pujols, Carson Kelly, Cardinal IP/TTM, and Cardinal PSA DNA

    1) For the HOF manager line-up card collection - Pick up a 3-5 more lineup cards signed by HOF managers including at least one from the "top" of my list (would love to pick up a Stengel Yankees lineup card or an old Connie Mack signed card).

    2) For the Jackie Robinson/Integration Collection - Would love to pick up a Jackie Robinson Negro League signed baseball. Also looking to pick up programs/materials related to Jackie's barnstorming tours, and other interesting items that tell the integration story. May look to move an item or two that are pretty cool, but not necessarily the core of my collection.

    3) For the Negro League contract collection - Pick up 1-2 more Negro League contracts of either HOF'ers or significant non-HOF players.

    4) WWII-baseball collection - Find WWII-baseball items related to Hank Greenberg as well as Bob Feller.

    5) Sell off items that are outside of my collecting focus or are "non-essentials." Even within my areas of focus I've definitely picked up some items that are interesting, but not really the sweet spot of my collection.

    1. Complete 1965-68 and 1970s Yankees team sets ― need 20 cards.
    2. Complete 2001-09 Topps Heritage Yankees team sets ― need 9 cards.
    3. Add 52 Paul O'Neill cards to reach the 760 mark of 1060 from Yankee years
    4. Add 12 quality singles to the collection ― autographs, vintage graded, or inserts
    5. Create custom card set featuring 6 Yankees on Seinfeld
    6. Clear out the trade box -- down to around 500 cards remaining
    7. Organize my high-end collection better, store in uniform magnetic holders/bags
    8. Continue to sell off accumulated things from around my office, garage and basement

    Good question... off the top of my head here goes:

    1. Collect more Jim Thome cards but try not to spend too much the next 2-3 months as Thome might go into the HOF next month. And if he goes into the HOF I'm going to try and go up to N.Y. for the HOF induction ceremony next summer.

    2. Get organized and count my Thome cards.

    3. Get the last 3 cards of my 1998 Thome Tek set: #17,24, and 90. And then work on set #2.

    4. Collect more Jim Thome cards.

    5. Finish my 1973 Topps set. Only need about 25 more. I have quite a few dupes for trade if anybody else is working on this set.

    6. Collect more vintage Phillies cards.

    7. Have fun sorting and organizing all these stacks of cards that are staring me in the face.

    8. Possibly try to finish another Topps set, most likely 1974 or 1976.

    Hadn't thought about it yet but here goes.

    1. Find the 6 Jeff Frye cards I need to get to 100% complete on both Beckett and SCF's checklists.

    2. Decide exactly how I'm going to proceed with my Ozzie Smith and Jeff Bagwell PCs.

    3. Complete my '80s RC want list.

    4. Complete my '80s Cardinals RC want list.

    5. Start on my '70s Cardinals RC want list.

    6. Complete the 1968 Topps Game set I started this week.

    I am looking to save money for a few things so I will aim low, and hope to stick to it.
    1-Add 4 Tim Wakefield's from his playing days....and any new releases.
    2-Herb Pennock, Harry Lord and Jack Barry playing days Red Sox card.
    3-Finish 1999 base Tek run of Biggio, need 12B and 30B

    That's it. Hopefully that will curtail my spending a bit, the chase is more thrilling for me anyway.

    I would like to get the last 50 or so Brian Johnson (Red Sox) not numbered 1/1 and that will put my unique # up to around 540 for him!

    1. Complete a base set for 2018 Topps Bunt digital. 2. Make trips to Cleveland to see the Tribe play and to NYC to see a Yankees game in Yankees stadium (Yankees v Mets at Citi would not count). 3. Buy a minimum of 3 1950's era graded cards of blue chips the likes of Mays, Aaron, Williams and Robinson. 4. Open at least one pack of 2018 baseball cards.
