    ^^ Nice progress on the Dodgers sets, one day I hope to get there.

    My main goal was to chip away at my Yankees team sets which I did. I picked a bunch of SP, variations, and exclusive cards earlier this year online. I also picked up about 100 or so cards from the two shows I attended. Here is where I stand now...

    New York Yankee Team Sets

    1950s Topps 18 / 203 = 8.87 % -185
    1960s Topps 92 / 370 = 24.86 % -278

    1970s Topps 299 / 330 = 90.33 % -31
    1980s Topps 425 / 426 = 99.77 % - 1
    1990s Topps 330 / 334 = 98.80 % - 4
    2000s Topps 477 / 489 = 97.54 % -12
    2010s Topps 237 / 304 = 77.96 % -44

    2001-2015 Topps Heritage 356 / 456 = 78.07 %
    2001-2007 Bowman Heritage 91 / 150 = 60.07 %

    1990-2015 Topps Pro Debut 43 / 88 = 48.86 %
    Team Sets/Exclusives/Promos 248 / 517 = 47.96 %

    Have made amazing gains on my 206 set including a cornerstone piece.

    Pre war type set collection has morphed a bit to a very narrow focus but it's been coming along nicely.

    Have not sold a single modern patch card

    I'll start:

    1) get rid of all my unwanted dupes/trade cards. I don't have much anymore but I'd really like to clean it out. About 400 Ichiro cards and 150 or so griffeys i haven't listed plus others

    2) seriously decide if I want to get out from under my griffey collection. Base/parallel/inserts/gu/and a couple other autos. About 1500 cards in all

    3) continue with my PC's. Have my eyes set on a few high end pieces that I've determined are a must.

    4) take the gamble on some older boxes or a newer case that may yield something for my pc. Something like National treasures

    5)continue to contribute to this community and help as many collectors as I can.

    **edit**
    6) something not in my control at all but I'd love to add another 2 or 3 cards to my "impossible to complete auto set"

    1: all are gone except a dupe pile of griffeys and the ichiros.

    2: have 3 lists of low end and some mid level griffey inserts ready to list. A load of jersey/bat cards ready to move

    3: I feel I've added 2 pieces this year I never thought Id get in the dimaggio and williams sweet spots. Anything beyond that is icing

    4:never even looked at boxes

    5: still have a pile to send

    6:I added 2 this year, should have been 3 more but I won't cry about it here.

    Goal for 2016 is to buy less cards than I did this year, get everything organized, build custom shelving to hold all my boxes, buy more curio cabinets and fill them with my non card items, give away 99% of my non Andre Dawson cards.

    My second goal is to be at 200+ cards on the 1955 Bowman set I have started this year. My goal for 2014 was to be at 100 cards with one key card purchased and I am well over 100 with the Mays card in my possession. I assumed it would take me three years to finish this set and I am on track to do so since there are only 320 cards in the set but the last 80 or so are a tough high number series.
    goal #1 partially completed as I moved 200k cards a few months ago. The same guy wants to buy the remaining inventory which we will do in April

    Goal #2 will see me fall just short of 200 cards in the set but I did pick up the big three of Mantle, Banks and Aaron this year so I am going to call the goal met. this set will be done in 2016.

    2. Knock a bunch of cards off of my Top 10 Most Wanted list for both the Red Sox and Alomar.

    3. Get to 1,000 different Sandy Alomar Jr. cards. I have 882 right now with 6 coming in.

    4. Get to 500 different David Ortiz cards with the Red Sox. I have 487 right now. Should be easy.
    Well let's see how I did:
    1. I have 11 cards left. So I did well, just not well enough.

    2. I knocked five cards off of my Top 10 for Sandy Alomar Jr. and four cards off of my Top 10 for the Red Sox. So I did quite well there.

    3. I now have 1,049 Sandy Alomar Jr. cards.

    4. I now have 522 David Ortiz cards with the Red Sox.

    So, basically I made three out of the four goals and did reasonably well on the other. So, not too bad I would say.

    Well, that didn't happen. All year I only saw one copy and it is listed for over $200. Yes, $200+ for a Hensley Meulens autographed card. Nope.

    3. Finish off my 2012 Topps Allen & Ginter Base Mini Set
    4. Finish my Minnesota Twins 2011 Topps Hope Diamond Team Set
    5. Spend as much money on opening packs as I did in 2014 (not very much)
    1. 88.56% with none coming in, so I will fall just short of 90% on this one. If I wasn't so lazy and cheap I could probably be above the 90% mark since there are still easy 2015 cards that I just haven't picked up yet, so this will be an on-going goal with his new cards coming out every year.

    2. Success! Picked up 7 throughout the season that were not from 2015 products, so I am very happy with that even if most were printing plates.

    3. I only made 1 real purchase on this set during the year that brought my needs from 33 to 22, so fail with not completing it, but inching my way closer..

    4. Still need 9 more. There have been 3 of my needs that either were listed, or are still listed on eBay but I'm just not wanting to pay $10 for the common guys. To be honest I am happy with all of the cards that I have from this set, so if I ever complete it, it will be a bonus.

    5. Big time success, and the real reason I know that is just not making as many trades this year. Most people are only looking for current products, and I would venture to say I didn't spend more than $200 the entire year on opening packs. However, I still enjoy opening packs so my goal for this next year might actually be to spend more.

    I succeeded and failed on different points.
    -I added 3 signed non-memorabilia cards
    -I added a number of graded rookies (some which are fanfreakingtastic).
    -I've almost doubled my Dunn game used bat collection (total of 23 bats).
    -I've added 3 of the best Dunn game used helmets in existence: 2012 400th HR helmet, final 2014 White Sox helmet, one and only A's helmet.
