1. Enjoy what I already have instead of craving what I don't.
2. Sell cards that don't fit in my collection goals. I mainly collect complete sets in binders, autographs, old Yankees and I have a few small player collections. All of the thousands of random star cards and commons I've accumlulated over the years need to go, especially since I might be moving in a few months.

4. Finally finish the 1958 Topps set.

Nice progress! I checked to see if Erstad was in this. He is not. If he was, I am certain I'd have doubles of nearly every non 1/1.So many goals but I am going to stick to my yearly main goal of trying to fill out and complete all of the serial numbered cards from the 2006 Topps Finest Set

Obviously, I am still on the uphill slope of this venture but the fun is in the searching and building.
As a side goal I will work on completing the 2000 Pacific Parmount Premiere Date /50 set. I am currently sitting at 116 cards out of 250.
Thanks! I have an extra Erstad 2000 Paramount Premiere Date /50 if you want it and do not already have it.Nice progress! I checked to see if Erstad was in this. He is not. If he was, I am certain I'd have doubles of nearly every non 1/1.
1. Only buy what I will display. I no longer collect cards that sit in boxes.
I am too concerned with fading. Seen it too many times with items on display.
Looks like I do have that one.Thanks! I have an extra Erstad 2000 Paramount Premiere Date /50 if you want it and do not already have it.
Pretty much the same for me...
1) Continue filling in the gaps in the ol' collection.
Land a white whale. Land two white whales!
3) Continue NOT buying new issues.
Knock five more off this list and complete a modern rainbow.

You are doing the hobby god's work and are appreciated for it!I had a realization recently that my actual hobby is data entry. I compile trading card checklists to post to TCDB. I research my family to plug the data into software and websites. I research wrestling to post the results on forums and websites. It all boils down to gathering information to populate some database somewhere.
So my main hobby goal is just to clear the backlog of missing BBM and Epoch sets from 2007-2022 over at TCDB and to start posting the various B.League, J.League, volleyball, horse racing and whatever other Japanese sets I can track down to add to TCDB's database.
