    Pretty much same as the last few years

    1) Keep adding to my vintage sets, 1941 Play Ball and 1971 Topps Greatest Moments
    2) Keep adding to my 2011 Marquee Museum set (possibly hit 75% this year)
    3) Finish the 2017 Topps Silver Pack chrome set (7 cards for S1 Gold/Orange/Blue/Green, 120+ for S2)
    4) Add at least 5 Grady Sizemores. Or else finally start on the M&M and Documentary variations I never cared about.
    4a) Finally build a site for my Sizemore collection. I've already paid a ton for my domain name and never really used it. But that means scanning a ton, which I hate.
    5) Sell more, buy less. Try to have my baseball hobby finance itself for this year

    Not really a goal, but it's been years since I opened a case of something. I keep thinking about Heritage, but I never pull the trigger. 1969 won't be my favorite design so I don't see plunging into that, even if it's not about the design. Maybe GQ or A&G. Maybe something new.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases and Grady Sizemores I don't have

    2018.. yes 2018! collection goals

    Apparently failed to document goals for 2017 so getting this in now.

    1. Per usual try to find 3 of my Jeff Cirillo needs
    2. Submit more to PSA for my Sveum collection and work on a graded Ď87 Topps Brewers team set (get to at least 75%) as I continue to get closer to death while desperately trying to hold on to the memories of my youth
    3. Upgrade at least 10 autographs from my all-time Brewers Collection (currently need to upgrade 28 for sure)
    4. Donít start any new projects
    5. Stay cigarette free

    awesome stuff guys! I hope to see positive notes later. even if it's just one card. that's something.
    to those of us that are putting personal goals, I hope you achieve everything and continue to succeed.

    4. Add 2 1/1's.
    5. Get to 70% of 2017 and 2018 Puckett Cards.
    Over half way through the year so I guess its time for an update.

    1. Made a ton of progress on this. Added shelving for displays and in my closet for storage. Still work to be done though.
    2. Haven't added any this year. Man these are hard to find!
    3. Puckett autos that I don't have are tough to find and very expensive. I did manage to add a signed Wheaties box though so I'm counting that as progress.
    4. Added 1 so far. Hopefully I can wrap this up soon.
    5. Right now I'm at 50% for 2018 and 60% for 2017. I have been picking away that this but its down to mainly low numbered stuff now.

    Anyone else have an update to share?

    - Sub my 2011 Topps Update Mike Trout to BGS. It looks like a 10.

    - Be debt free (2017 got me $15000 closer)
    Well this was a fun year so far. Iím posting this from Cleveland, so goal 1 done.

    2011 Tint set, eh, much closer than I was, but not quite done.

    2001 Topps Heritage - Done (minus 90 or so chromes)

    Still looking for the Ruth GU bat I need. No dealers at the NSCC have this.

    I did indeed sub my Trout at the National and scored a BGS 9.5! Very happy about that.

    Debt free... well, not quite yet. Iíll have only $15k left in September, so I should be done by March 2019. Then itís time for some house renovations!

    1. I think Iíve only been able to locate one so far this year unfortunately. They just arenít anywhere to be found
    2. Subbed a handful so far this year so there was progress. Would like to do more yet if I can find the time which hasnít been easy to come by
    3. Definitely succeeded here already. Only about 8 more that ďneedĒ to be upgraded to a Brewers item or neutral item (index card). I also managed to upgrade a bunch of index cards to Brewers cards though I havenít tracked those as an attainable goal
    4. I think Iím succeeding here so far. Toed the line a few times
    5. Still cigarette free since 10/11/17

    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.
    1- I've added 5 Wakefield cards from his playing days, which is the most in two or three years, pretty excited about that. He's been in one release this year and I got all 4 cards, including the one of one.
    2- I added the herb pennock and Harry Lord. I've seen a couple Jack Barrys but theyre just a bit more than I'd like to spend.
    3- No luck on those two Biggio patterns from 99. Found a few 98s but no finish line in sight there yet.

    What are YOUR hopes and aspirations for your part in the collecting world in the following year?
    I'll list mine in no particular order.

    1) I want to FINISH AT least 2 of the sets I'm working on. down to 3 cards or less in 4 sets.

    2) stay focused. I got a little off track with main PC pickups being slow and grabbed up a bunch of stuff I'll probably end up selling in the near future.

    3) get re-supplied and have everything encased, labeled and team bagged. I was at about 95% for a month and I keep falling backwards.

    4) this is the year I finally grab a Harper auto. overdue But I may just bite the bullet finally.

    5) Did I say stay focused!!? I love the stuff I have but between starting a new spahn pc, haniger rainbow, star autographs of today's young stars and grabbing a few things I thought were needed, I spent double what I should have. Stick to my sets or a hof patch once in a while and I feel I should be good.

    6) get back in the gym and lose some weight. my knees and back hurt and my 20 yr reunion is this year, so why not?

    anyone?
    I was going to wait to reply but I don't have anything else going on so...

    1) Finished 1 set, one card away from 3 anothers so I feel accomplished. started the year needing 252 cards for my sets. down to 150 or so.

    2)still selling but for the most part staying focused 75% of the time.

    3) ACCOMPLISHED everything is cased and labeled. just need to reorganize my boxes

    4)haven't grabbed the Harper yet. some great ones out there, haven't been able to pull the trigger

    5) still spending a bit but mostly only on my sets and supplies. sure another haniger rainbow and a 2012 tribute set and the living set each week but that's it for non main PC items

    6) started back in the gym in April, went 1-3 times a week until early July. felt amazing, nothing hurt. clothes went loose, stronger but my weight stayed the same. haven't gone in 3 weeks. feel like a slug now.

    ó picked up a second Walter Johnson as well as some other interesting lineup cards, but havenít been able to find any new HOFíers. (Thought I had found an Eddie Murray but it ended up being a carbon copy which I returned) ó


    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.

    ó picked up a signed high school yearbook and an album signed by the 1946 Nashua Dodgers (with Campanella and Newcombe) but itís been slow in that area. ó

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

    ó been slow. Nothing to report here ó

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

    ó havenít found anything ó

    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.

    ó havenít done enough of this ó
